How to Have a Clean Home

Beginner's Guide to a Clean Home

Everyone loves a Clean Home. Whether visiting one or living in one it’s a thing of beauty and a goal for many. 

I actually learned to clean homes on a job. My first summer out of high school I spent 2 months cleaning the small apartments in an convalescent center. I had a crash course from a lady not much older than myself on how to thoroughly clean the bathroom, kitchen, and living spaces on a floor of apartments in one afternoon. Each day after work I was WIPED OUT! But I learned so much and I use what I learned to this day!


  • A clean home can mean different things to different people. While there is a certain point where, yeah, your home is messy, the level of cleanliness that each family is comfortable with can vary greatly.
  • If your home’s level of cleanliness is not something you’re comfortable by all means change that. It does not have to take all day.  And you do not have to do it alone!

How to get started Cleaning Your Home
