How to speed up cleaning: the 3-minute method will help

In just three minutes a day, you can tame even a huge mess

When we come home from the street, we often leave a pile of small junk in the hallway, including bills, receipts, flyers, impulse-bought gum, etc. Other surfaces in the house get the same treatment. There's an unfinished cup of tea here, an unread book, or a stuffed animal in this corner gathering dust. All of this together clutters up the room and creates a sense of terrible disorder.

Sometimes it seems that it will take hours, if not days, to clear this clutter. This scares us, and we keep putting off cleaning, gradually accumulating more clutter. But what if we told you that you can tame the chaos in just 3 minutes a day? OBOZ.UA tells you about a cleaning method that will help you gradually put your home in order that takes very little time.

The essence of the method is the systematic and regular cleaning of cluttered surfaces. They become the center of attraction for clutter in the house.

To cope with this problem, all you need is a basket, basin, or box. In short, some large enough container where you can put various items. Put this container near you and start the timer for 3 minutes. Immediately after that, start putting everything you find on the surface into the basket, including chargers, notebooks, scattered T-shirts, jars of cosmetics, pieces of paper. Anything that comes to hand.

Keep in mind that this is not a speed contest. Collect only what is really out of place.

When the timer signals the end of the time, stop. Then start sorting out the contents of the basket. Take everything that was just out of place to where it belongs. Put dirty dishes in the sink, books on the shelf, clothes in the closet, and so on. Throw away outright garbage like another store receipt or candy wrapper. It will take another 5-10 minutes.

Now look at the clean surface. You'll be surprised how much mess you've removed in such a short time. Repeat this procedure every day and you will quickly see how your home is changing. Over time, such quick cleaning will become a habit and it will become much easier for you to maintain order in the house.
