How to speed clean your house! (plus a deep-cleaning daily printable!)

Great tips for speed-cleaning your house, plus a daily deep-cleaning printable! SO EASY!

With summer coming to a close *bursts into ugly sobs* efficiency has been on the brain. I've been slowly trying (try being the key word here…) to ease back into reality (aka a schedule of any form or function) as we inch back to school. I've been trying to focus on being more purposeful with my minutes, and to find little 5, 10, and 15 minute pockets in my day to get stuff done.

I find myself falling into the trap of thinking “I need to clean my house on Saturday”, envisioning having hours on end to scrub my house from top to bottom.

Yeah. Sniffing. Right.

It's hard to find one hour, let along 5 hours to clean! Instead, I have been focusing more on SPEED CLEANING, and it's been amazing! By taking just 5, 10, or 20 minutes to clean a room, I get more done, I don't feel like it's a hopeless task, and it helps me stay on top of the messes. The deep cleaning comes in time as well (see my list below!).

But trust me, you are NOT slacking if you speed clean. In fact, you are a boss if you do. A speed cleaning boss. Of the universe.

Today I'm going to show you how I speed clean my kitchen and main living space (the messiest spots in my house!) as well as bedrooms.

First up, the bedroom. Watch the video online or click and watch below:


See? Not too bad! All it takes is 10-15 minutes to clean a room quickly. Maybe you won't finish the job completely, but that's ok! Leave, go do something else, and come back to finish the next time you get 10 minutes.

Now, let's speed clean the kitchen and main living areas!

How I speed clean my kitchen!

Please tell me I'm not the only one whose house looks like it's been ransacked ALL. THE. TIME…

Now, time for the deep cleaning!

I have found the best way to do it is to chip away at it each day. Here are some of my most popular cleaning posts to help!

  1. I would LOVE to see how you would speed clean your bathroom (especially one that a man uses regularly, Yuk!!) or your child’s play room! You are smokin’ awesome lady!! Thanks for all the great tips

  2. I often get overwhelmed when cleaning my home, so this is a great way to be productive and make your living space habitable in a manageable way. Thanks for these tips!

  3. Thank you for these speed cleans. Could you make a written list of the process? I rewatched to stop/start and write down. I just discovered you and love what I’ve seen so far. As someone working 3 part time jobs whe going to school, saving money and time are key.

  4. The speed clean of your bedroom is my favorite video you have done… laughed out loud with the cartwheel! I think you are awesome… thanks for sharing your tips.., where does one get a disco machine?

  5. After I read this post I started using your speed cleaning tips before we have guests come over. Is It bad that sometimes I use it at night just so I can pretend that my house is clean and I can get a good nights sleep! Thank you so much!

  6. I’ve been doing this since The beginning fo January and it has made a huge difference in keeping my house up! Thanks for all the awesome tips!

  7. Love this! It’s going to go well with my goals I need to set. Thanks for this post (and all of your other awesome posts)!

  8. I showed this to my mom, I loved it so much! I’ve set timers for myself just like you did and it’s helped me so so much. Such good advice and so practical. Thanks 🙂

  9. I love the idea of speed cleaning! I always procrastinate cleaning because it ends up taking me all day because I don’t know where to stop! I am going to try this.

  10. Thank you! Your tips in this blog and via insta stories have made me lower my standards (in a healthy way) about cleaning the house and house jobs – I don’t have to wait until I have a whole day to tackle everything perfectly! Our timer is now our best friend!

  11. I definitely fall into the “I’ll clean everything on Saturday” pit! Focusing for a shorter amount of time is magical! Thanks for the tips!

  12. Poor baby got a dance party bump!! I love that you have the kids help. My son loves to do dishes (more power to ya kid). Thanks so much, setting a timer so helps!

  13. A couple weeks after my first daughter figured out how to walk I remember thinking to myself “my house has never been this messy!” 😆 cute toddling baby + carrying anything and everything she could get her hands on = pots and pans in my bedroom and stuffed animals in the cupboards. She left a literal trail of miscellaneous stuff wherever she went and I couldn’t keep up with her. Your tips/videos helped me get out of the mindset of having to feel like I had to clean everything in the room all at once. 5 minutes here, 5 minutes there makes a big difference at the end of the day. Also your tip to never leave a room empty handed – gamechanger! Love your tips!

  14. I printed out the schedule and can’t wait to start using it around the house. I know it will help so much! Thank you!

  15. I use your 10 minute tip all the time! I’ve actually started setting timers too to get stuff done. It such a simple concept that I never thought of before! Thanks for the tips Jordan!

  16. I was just dreading all the deep cleaning i want to do this weekend. I get so frustrated and it takes me forever to clean because i hop from kitchen to living space then back to the kitchen. Thanks for timer tip AND the videos.

  17. This was one of my favorite posts.
    I now speed clean all the time. I set a little timer and blast music. I also do the thing where I leave a room with something that doesn’t belong in the room and put it back and vice verse. But by far I just love the timer method. It’s a fun little personal challenge that I love to win!

  18. Love these tips! I’ve been speed cleaning all over my house and setting timers. If I know it’s only a few minutes, I don’t dread it as much! Thank you for your amazing posts and videos!

  19. I have always used this method for deep cleaning (it really works!). And I loved your speed cleaning tips! It can be easy to get overwhelmed with littles running around the house so I’m definitely going to try these out!

  20. Jordan! I love the speed cleaning! I have started doing it at my house and it really does help things stay cleaner and it makes you feel accomplished! Thanks for all your tips and tricks! I look forward to every new video and I have binge watched all the previous ones! Love your energy and your example.

  21. I use this tip all.the.time! I recommend it to my friends too. I definitely think I get more cleaning done when I use a timer.

  22. For insta giveaway:
    This has been awesome! I’ll put the printable in our cleaning closet 😀 I would love a video of how you deep clean your bathroom! Maybe some cleaning products you recommend for that? I feel like all cleaning products are pricey & maybe not the safest 🙁 thanks for all you do!!! You rock!!

  23. I love this! I have started doing this about 30 minutes before my husband gets home so the house is semi clean. I do this for 10 minutes and then take 10 minutes to do dinner prep so I can throw it together when he gets home

  24. Being a working mom with my husband in school full time, often cleaning gets cut out of the to dos. Thank you for the tips!

  25. Got carried away reading your blog posts! I read this one about speed clean, hutch drowning one, and shelf cooking! I have following you on Instagram for some time now, but have only watched your videos! I’ll be reading your blog posts often now! And hopefully I will try your budget boot camp soon when we have a little extra money. Thanks for being so real, and inspirational.

  26. I have 1 print out with the things I Should be doing regularly. I have a wet erase marker and I write the day beside the chore that I completed it so whenever I’m bored I look to the west and see what needs to be done that has been done in a while

  27. Thanks for the tips and all! I actually had never thought of speed cleaning before watching this video… that is such a great idea, can’t understand how I never thought of it myself… Thanks!

  28. Short bursts of cleaning really do help especially with working full time and 2 young kids. Thanks for the suggestions!

  29. I love your tips! They help me keep a cleaner house and I share this post with people all the time! Thank you thank you!!!
