Little Cleaning Tips to Make a Big Difference


Little effort with a big impact? We love to see it.

We all love a clean home. But all the work it takes to maintain it? Not so much. Thankfully, Dropps is here to help. Get ready to work smarter, not harder when it comes to keeping your home clean. A sparkling clean home doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. Here are a few of our favorite little cleaning tips that make a big difference!

Go Through Your Fridge Before Taking Out The Trash

We’re all guilty of forgetting about the produce or leftovers in the back of the fridge. Prevent smelly surprises by taking a moment to go through your fridge whenever you take out the trash or compost. This practice can also help you be more mindful of the food and ingredients you already have. If you’ve been looking for a sign to adopt a low-waste cooking mindset (or just be a smarter grocery shopper), here it is!

Clean Up As You Go

A little goes a long way. Taking a few minutes to tidy after finishing an activity or before leaving a room helps prevent overwhelm. Rather than letting dishes pile up and doing a whole stack at once, try washing a dish right after you’re done using it. Washing a single plate with Power Dish Spray only takes a few seconds and will save you a lot of hassle later on!

Do A Nightly Round of Decluttering

Before bed, take a few minutes to do some decluttering. Don’t worry, we’re not talking about undertaking any reorganization projects! Throughout the day, items inevitably get used and moved around. Taking some time to return them to their homes will help restore a peaceful environment for a great night’s sleep, and let you wake up in a clutter free house!

A bonus? You’ll know exactly where those often used (and easily lost) items are when you need them the next day,

Use Products that Smell Good

There’s nothing like that fresh laundry smell to help you feel clean and cozy. While scent and cleanliness aren’t always linked, a nice scent will help your home feel cleaner on a regular basis! Use cleaning products that smell good to help you look forward to cleaning your home. You can also use our Revitalizing Mists to add that just-cleaned smell without actually cleaning. Don’t worry, we won’t tell!

Wipe Down Sinks and Counters Daily

Wiping down your sinks and counters is an easy thing to incorporate into your daily routine. Making this a regular part of your day keeps your home clean and hygienic, and helps keep cleaning from being daunting. Dissolve an Oxi Booster pod in warm water to create a cleaning solution, or use our Power Dish Spray as a surface cleaner to wipe down sinks and counters. We recommend keeping a bottle in your kitchen and a bottle in your bathroom to make this easier and more intuitive! The bottle is a great visual reminder, and this way you don’t need to carry the product back and forth.

Keep it Simple with Products

There’s no need to overcomplicate your cleaning routine (or crowd your cleaning supply storage)! A few great and powerful products, like our Oxi Booster Pods, Swedish Dish Cloths, Power Dish Spray, and Pop-Up Sponges are all you need for a sustainably sparkling home.
