5 Easy Ways to Keep Your Apartment Clean

So, you’re living in or are about to move into one of the Santa Monica apartments at [email protected], [email protected] or [email protected]. Of the many aspects you enjoy about your new living experience, one is the cleanliness of your sleek and shiny new apartment.

If you’d like to keep it that way but aren’t inclined to clean and, really, who is? we’ve put together a few easy steps you can take to save yourself more work later:

Keep the sink clean. Pack those dishes into the dishwasher as soon as you’re done eating, so the scraps don’t harden, and take care of the remaining dishes in the sink as soon as you can. When they’re dry, stow them away to keep kitchen clutter to a minimum.

Make your bed every morning. There’s a reason why your mom always told you to do it. Psychologically, getting your bed in order will get you off on the right foot in the morning. Plus, it might even inspire you to do additional cleaning throughout the day.

See a spot, swipe it up. Don’t let liquids or other smears dry or harden on the floor, refrigerator and elsewhere. The quicker you clean them up, the less work you’ll have to do later and you might not even have to pick up a mop!

Regularly wipe down, scrub and/or swipe sinks, the toilet and mirrors. Just one cloth can take care of all these cleaning duties, but be mindful of smears.

Likewise, wipe down the shower (with a Squeegee, perhaps) after every use. It sounds like a pain in the neck, but doing so daily will save you from hours of toiling over hard buildup.

Stay clean and stay happy!
