Morning cleaning routine before work (for working moms)

Here’s what MY MORNING CLEANING ROUTINE looks like:

  • Start one load of laundry
  • Put away clean dishes (I do not own a dishwasher. I prefer to wash dishes by hand. But I always let them dry off so I put them back in the morning)
  • Make the bed
  • Take out trash
  • Swish and swipe the bathroom before taking shower.
  • Tidy up and clean the floors (I sweep & mop all three rooms every single day. My home is really small — 1 bedroom apartment so it’s easier for me)
  • Clean up breakfast dishes
  • Wipe down counters

How to make the morning cleaning routine easier for you?

1// Prep up the night before:

A productive morning is a result of a thorough nighttime routine followed religiously.

In order to make your morning cleaning routine easier make sure you prepare the night before.

Preparing ahead you won’t have much to do in the morning.

2// Use timer:

I have tried both using a timer and setting the same amount of time on the clock.

But I must say the timer technique does wonder. It eliminates distractions and helps you concentrate on the task at hand.

Truly, I cannot explain how fast it gets the cleaning job done.

3// Purge unused items a few times:

Keep the counters clutter-free for no sweat cleaning.

Purging unwanted items every now and then allows you to wipe down the surfaces faster and makes the place visually appealing.

4// Get help:

Make kids put their toys back in the basket. My dad is a super-organized person. He loves to do the tidying and dusting for my mom.

Sharing responsibilities and housework, irrespective of the age group is always nice and helpful.

If nobody is willing to help, hold each person responsible for their own mess.

5// Have good nightly and weekly cleaning routines:

Aid your morning cleaning routine with good nighttime and weekly cleaning to keep your home clean consistently.

This will help keep your house clean on autopilot.

6// Make it interesting:

Put on some upbeat music, listen to a podcast, watch a cleaning motivation video, chat with your partner, or make it a family fun activity to make it interesting.

Final words:

This simple, quick morning cleaning routine will ensure your home is clean and tidy. The further part will be covered in our nighttime and weekly cleaning routine.
