A few months ago, getting the house clean didn’t seem like such a big deal. Vacuum the rugs, scrub the tub and toilets, make sure there are no Cheerios hiding under the couch and you’re basically good to go. But now that our homes have turned into makeshift offices, gyms, playgrounds, restaurants and bars, keeping things clean has suddenly become a Herculean task. Plus, keeping the house sanitized and germ-free is more important than ever—especially when a disinfected light switch could mean the difference between staying healthy and getting sick.
How do you tackle this seemingly insurmountable task, especially when you’re busy and stressed? Take a deep breath and do one thing at a time. We’ve tapped cleaning experts and the CDC to help you “quaranclean” your home…and actually, sort of enjoy it. (Note: These are best practices as defined by the pros, so if you don't have the time or energy to sanitize your light switches every single day, that is totally OK. Just do what you can.)
