Travelling can leave your accommodation room feeling like a whirlwind of mess. Of course, there are many things to do when you’re on the go, but it’s essential not to neglect how your space feels when you get back. It can be hard work trying to keep up with all the little details in life, but there are some easy ways you can make sure that your time away leaves everything nice and tidy for when you come home.
This blog post will explore tips on how to keep your space clean and tidy while travelling!
The first thing you should do when you get to your accommodation is unpacking. There’s nothing like arriving at a place and having nowhere to put all of your belongings! This can be especially important if it’s not just an overnight stay or for multiple nights. There are lots of things that’ll end up getting left in the suitcase otherwise.
You might find yourself rushing through this task because you’re tired after travelling, but unpacking will only take about 20 minutes (at most) once everything starts spilling out onto the floor, so don’t leave it too late. It makes feeling clean and organized much more manageable when you have somewhere for your stuff!
A lot of people think that making their bed is something to do when they get back from a day of sightseeing, exploring or working. But, in actual fact, it’s the very best thing you can do for yourself and your space. Doing this will help organize all of your belongings and make everything look tidy, which makes getting into bed that much more enjoyable!
It’s easy to let trash accumulate while travelling but doing this can really make a difference to how your space looks. You don’t want things to overflow onto the floor, so you need to get rid of waste regularly, especially if there’s no room service at your accommodation! It’s best practice not to leave trash in the bin for more than one day either.
It’s essential to keep your hotel room nice and clean every day. This means regularly cleaning up after yourself, making the bed, tidying away things that are lying around. You get the picture! It’ll only take a few minutes of your time each morning or night, but it makes all of the difference when you’re back from exploring.
Suppose you’re travelling and working at the same time. In that case, you might consider renting a small office to work from. Even here, it is vital to maintain a clean and tidy workspace; not only will it improve your overall mood, but it will increase productivity. If you simply don’t have enough time, try searching for a local office cleaning company to send some out twice a week.
Dirty clothes can be an indicator of how well-travelled you are, which is cool if they’re just scattered on top of your suitcase! But this isn’t good for keeping these things organized, so try to remove them at least once per week. Throw them into laundry bags or hampers (if any are provided), and you won’t have to worry about them when you get back home.
It’s a good idea to travel with something that reminds you of home while you’re away, whether it be a photo, an object or even just the scent from your favourite candle. This makes life seem less alien when everything feels unfamiliar and can make coming back to your hotel feel like returning home too!
If you take care of your accommodation space while travelling, it’ll make the experience much more enjoyable, allowing you to have the best possible experience.
