2. Allowing paper clutter to accumulate from nails to paper bills you often see yourself a piling of them but instead of doing something you just leave them there as a result there is a mountain of useless papers do not let this kind of thing happen destroy them using a shredder or simply put them in the trash it is that simple anyway.

3. Cleaning using dirty tools seriously you are not doing any good here how can you really expect a satisfactory result if you are cleaning using dirty tools if you think your washer needs some cleaning then do it before reusing it if your mop is already dirty wash it up before reusing it, it would not take much of your time and at the same time you will be doing yourself a huge favor.

4. Using too much cleaning product there really is no need to use a lot of cleaning product in fact even a lesser quantity is enough to do the work so you could save money and there is no need to buy more just so you can accommodate the need.

5. Leaving dirty dishes in the sink ah everyone’s guilty when it comes to this one how much longer do the dishes have to wait before you decide to wash them if you are able to do so immediately do it leaving them in the sink will pave the way for bacteria to grow.

6. Using one disinfectant wipe the entire bathroom yes this one here is absolutely wrong disposable disinfectant wipes are perfect but only for a quick clean down you need to stop using it again and again especially if you are cleaning the bathroom as much as possible use a lot more.

7. Wearing shoes inside the house if you want to save some time vacuuming stop wearing shoes inside the house it is a great way to prevent the growth of germs or bacteria so leave them in the entryway or shoe rack that is pretty much a solution.

8. Leaving the bed unmade regardless of your room being clean and neat it never good to leave your bed unmade after waking up take some time to make the bed it is not a huge thing to do plus it helps keep things organized.

9. Hoarding food in the refrigerator if you or your other family members hate leftovers then stop leaving food in the fridge don’t bother to stash them especially if you do not plan to eat them later on improperly storing food in the refrigerator will help promote germ and bacteria growth.

Not storing cleaning products correctly are you usually having a hard time finding the right cleaning tool or product do you often find yourself getting impatient because the baking soda is nowhere to be found then stop storing them incorrectly consider organizing all your cleaning products or tools for easy access.

11. Not reading directions a lot of people love to do this and then they try to use a cleaning product only to find out that nothing is working why that is because they did not bother to read the directions do yourself a favor and start reading the directions before using the product.

12. Dusting while cleaning just like using dirty tools for cleaning this one here shares the same idea if you want to save time trying dusting before you start vacuuming and if you are going to clean a room or any area in the house start from the top going down.

13. Wait until the cleaning job is just too much this one here is all about being lazy in some cases you just feel like leaving the cleaning task for tomorrow the next thing you know you are unable to do so because of work or something else if you can do it now do it.

14. Not completing tasks let’s say you have decided to organize the entire closet but at some point you decided to stop hence a part of the closet remains cluttered this is unacceptable and in fact does not promote healthy cleaning habit.

15. Using harsh cleaners do not be fooled by advertisements saying that this cleaning product is harsher or more capable than the other there is no need to besides using a harsh one is not good you can do more harm than good like stripping your countertops beauty and whatnot.
