The bed you made. Your bedroom looks more and more tidy when the bed is made. This rule is important for everyone who only lives in one room! And basically it’s a nice feeling to be able to jump into a freshly made bed in the evening.
Dry the shower and washbasin. After taking a shower, simply pick up a towel and dry the shower. Not only does it always look clean, it also removes soap stains and prevents mold fungus in the joints. And a cleaned washbasin makes the bathroom look much tidier.
A clean kitchen sink. A clean sink makes every kitchen look tidier. Top priority: Always keep the sieve in the sink clean!
