Cleaning the house in 30 minutes: find out how!

Cleaning the house in 30 minutes may seem like a difficult challenge, but it is possible with organisation and focus on the most important tasks. It's normal that between working, looking after children, cooking, shopping, going to the gym, among other tasks, that cleaning our homes gets forgotten during the week. And when the weekend comes we don't want to spend too much time on these tasks either, because we want to rest or make the most of our free time. So here are tips for quickly cleaning your home.

Ideas for cleaning the house in 30 minutes

  1. Kitchen (8 minutes)

Put dirty dishes directly into the dishwasher. Immerse in the dishwasher

with hot water and dishwashing detergent. Fill a bucket with hot water, add a kitchen cleaner and use a sponge to clean the dishes, cupboards, counters and other surfaces. Rinse the sponge between cleanings. Finally, wipe down any remaining appliances and counters.

  1. Bathroom (5 minutes)

Spray the shower and bath with an anti-mould and fungus cleaner and leave it on while you scrub and clean the toilet. Clean the wash basin with appropriate cleaning products and dry it before putting the objects back in. Wash the shower and bathtub, scrubbing away any stubborn marks with a microfibre cloth. Mop the floor.

  1. Bedroom (5 minutes)

Lay out the sheets and bedspread and arrange the pillows. Put the dirty laundry in the laundry basket and sort the clean laundry into a pile or hang it up in the wardrobe.

  1. Living room (5 minutes)

Tidy up any books, papers or stray objects on the shelves and tables. Clean the visible surfaces of the furniture with a damp cloth.

  1. Floor (7 minutes)

For best results on wooden floors, quickly vacuum the area to remove excess debris. Next, fill a bucket with warm water and detergent and, using a microfibre mop, rinse off the excess water and mop the floor in a W motion. Vacuum the other rooms with quick, zonal movements to minimize wasted time.


As a final suggestion, put on your favorite music to make the task more pleasant and stimulating. And remember that the secret to efficient cleaning is consistency. Do it regularly to keep the house more organised and easier to clean.
