Developing Habits that Result in a Clean Home

Most stay-at-home moms want to have a clean home, but many do not have the habits that result in a clean home.

*Do you spend all day on Pinterest searching for tips and hacks on how to have a clean home, or how to develop habits that result in a clean home?

If so, you are not alone.  We know as homemakers it is important our homes be clean and organized.

However, why is it so important?

1.  A chaotic house = chaotic life.

The world is chaotic enough. Why should your home be crazy? Your home should be your sanctuary where your loved ones can find rest.

Be the calm in this world.  Let your home be a peaceful tranquil place for your family. Your home should be an oasis in the storm.  A dirty, unkempt house is not calm nor very relaxing. It creates a feeling of being out of control. If you have no control of your house and the state of cleanliness, there is no control for your family.

2.  Sickness Control:

An unclean house is a breeding ground for germs and viruses that can cause your family to become ill.  Maintaining a regular cleaning of your house can dramatically decrease the amount of illness within the four walls of your house.
