Day 1 – 5: Kitchen Organization

Start your #OCDchallenge and kitchen declutter by preparing your cloths and cleaning essentials. That way you can wipe away any layers of dust and grime that have built up in your kitchen. 

Some common appliances that you can consider giving a good wipe would be these: 

  • Microwave
  • Rice cooker
  • Oven
  • Kettle
  • Fridge 
  • Blender
  • Cooking hob and hood

When wiping down your countertops and kitchen surfaces, remember to use a microfiber cloth to gently go over the surface. For wood surfaces, use a mixture of warm water with a splash of distilled white vinegar. Granite, laminate and quartz surfaces can be wiped with warm soapy water (use dish soap).

Note: Do not use vinegar on granite as it corrodes the surface. 

Make use of wall holders and organizers to increase storage space and help you keep your food and condiments in check. Transfer packaged dry goods into clear, airtight containers to keep them fresh and neat!

Day 6 – 10: Bedroom Organization

Do a purge of all old and unwanted items, so you’ll have less to deal with later on. Closets containing clothes, bags and accessories are a prime spot for clutter buildup. You may also have lots of beauty essentials lying around your bedside table or vanity.

Day 11 – 15: Living Room Organization

Your living room is a space where you spend time relaxing. Be it with friends and family, or curled up on the sofa by yourself to enjoy a good read, you’d want this space to be clean and homely. This is especially so now that everyone will be at home all the time. 

Coffee tables are convenient for leaving items on, and hence get messy easily. Clear out your coffee table so the space feels less cluttered. If you’re struggling to find a home for your remote controls and small knick-knacks, a basket or holder will ensure you never lose these items again.

Day 16 – 20: Bathroom Organization

Is your bathroom brimming with bottles of shampoo, body washes and other cleaning products? Make sure to sort out those that are no longer in use and discard them. Create space for these items by attaching holders or hooks to your bathroom.

If your family shares one bathroom, it may be a good idea to create more space for toiletries so your bathroom cabinets are not filled with clutter. A standing rack or shelf will allow you to designate a shelf or space to each family member so items are easily identifiable and retrievable!

Day 25 – 28: Organization Of Other Spaces At Home

You’ve made it so far in this challenge, now it’s time to round up all your efforts by cleaning up any other messy spots at home! Organize your laundry area and medicine cabinet by chucking unwanted items in the bin and bringing commonly used items to the front. 

If you have children, spend some time sorting out their items, such as toys, books or stationery. Toys are often a haven for germs, so protect your children by keeping germ-free. Here’s how you can clean some common toys: 

  • Teething toys: In a mixture of hot water and mild liquid dish soap, soak the toys for a few minutes. Then, soak the toys for 15 minutes in a mixture of distilled white vinegar and warm water before rinsing off with cool water. 
  • Wood toys: In a spray bottle, mix white vinegar and water in a 1:1 ratio and spray the toys with the solution. Wipe dry with a microfiber cloth. 
  • Plush toys: Wash in the washing machine in hot water and tumble dry on low. Place it in a laundry bag to prevent damage to the toy.

After everything is complete, give your home a final thorough cleaning by vacuuming, sweeping and mopping all the dust and grime away.
