Before Nora was born, I didn’t spend much time in our spare room — it was Vagner’s makeshift office. And we used it to store everything that didn’t fit anywhere else. Admittedly, we didn’t clean it very often because there wasn’t a reason to. But once we transformed it into a baby nursery, I knew that would change. I wanted to share a few nursery cleaning hacks I’ve learned along the way.
Nursery Cleaning Hacks: How To Keep Your Baby’s Room Tidy
Use Baby-Safe Products
This may seem like a no-brainer, but as someone who hasn’t ever had a reason to childproof my home, it was shocking to learn more about the harsh ingredients in so many of the cleaning products I use. I’ve been using Lemi Shine cleaning products around the house and can’t sing their praises enough. Their products don’t have any dangerous chemicals like bleach, formaldehyde, or ammonia. And don’t leave behind any residue, so I feel good using them around the house. While Nora is already putting everything she can grab in her mouth, I know she’ll be doing it even more once she gets better at grabbing things.
Look For Shortcuts
Let’s be real, I don’t have time to deep clean my house every week. I’d love to, but it just isn’t realistic. That’s why I love Lemi Shine disinfecting wipes — they make it easy to clean the nursery and other parts of the house on the go. If you find yourself wishing there were more hours in the week so you could get everything done, I can relate. I recommend finding shortcuts wherever you can to make it easier to clean your house. And just like other Lemi Shine products, they don’t have any caustic ingredients.
Spend 5-10 Minutes Cleaning Every Day
I’ve learned that if I leave all of my cleaning for the weekend, I end up feeling overwhelmed and don’t get much done. If you’re in a similar boat, I recommend setting a timer for five (or 10, or 15) minutes a day and just tidying up as much as you can. It makes it manageable to tackle it in daily chunks, and if you have the right products in your arsenal, cleaning can even become fun.
