Quick Cleaning Tips for the Summer + Free Printable Checklist
I am a compensated 3M-sponsored blogger. Opinions are my own and additional products used in the project were selected by me.
It’s summer – no one wants to be inside cleaning. If you feel like your home needs a little (or a lot) of cleaning and you don’t want to spend much time doing it, try this quick clean checklist. This checklist streamlines your cleaning and concentrates on getting the dirtiest places in your home quickly cleaned. By putting a couple quick cleaning products and systems in place, you’ll be back outside in no time.
Grab your tools and supplies
- Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloths – find them here
- Scotch-Brite Disposable Toilet Scrubber – find them here
- Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge
- Your favorite all-purpose spray cleaner (here’s my favorite DIY recipe)
- Dish or castile soap
- Warm water
GATHER YOUR TOOLS
Keep your favorite tools in a cleaning caddy so you can clean any time. My must haves? Microfiber cleaning cloths, lint roller, Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloths, Scotch-Brite Disposable Toilet Scrubber, Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge, your favorite all-purpose spray cleaner.
SET A TIMER
Stay on task by setting a time limit to get your cleaning done. Thirty minutes should be plenty of time to do a little summer quick cleaning. Put away any distractions and focus on cleaning for the time you have to clean.
PICK UP CLUTTER
Grab a garbage bag or laundry basket and quickly move through your spaces picking up anything that doesn’t belong. Set the clutter aside and deal with it after you’ve cleaned.
WIPE SURFACES IN THE KITCHEN
Use a Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth to quickly wash dishes, wipe down counters, appliances, just about any and every surface.
The scrubbing side is perfect for anything that’s stuck on and the soft side wipes surfaces with ease. I love that the dish cloth can be machine washed and dried, making it an eco-friendly option.
QUICKLY CLEAN THE BATHROOMS
Spray and wipe the mirrors. Spray and wipe down the counters. Use a Scotch-Brite Disposable Toilet Scrubber to quickly scrub the toilets.
The new Scotch-Brite Disposable Toilet Scrubber is the perfect tool for getting in and out of the bathroom, cleaning in a hurry. Once you’ve done a little quick clean, put out fresh towels and make sure there’s toilet paper stocked.
A quick clean routine is a great way to clean the house in a hurry and make time for summer fun. Use this FREE printable checklist (download it here) to guide you through a quick cleaning routine whenever you need a little jump start. Happy cleaning!
