Jack’s top 10 cleaning tip’s to keep your office in order…..
10. Air freshener:
At the very least, it’ll make your office smell nice and clean.
9. Keep Handi Wipes, well, handy:
Emergency cleaning supplies are good to have for those unforeseen circumstances. It’s a shame that only babies and youngsters have spill-proof cups……..
8. Hang up your coats, jackets, etc.:
If you don’t have a coat stand or cloakroom, get door / wall mounted hooks. If you work in a pod, try suggesting a communal area where everyone can hang up their coats and bags. Just like at home. Remember clothing tossed around equals instant mess.
7. Get a computer brush to keep your desk clean:
Someone gave me one of those recently (I obviously needed it) and it is my new favourite toy!
As someone who eats at my desk, it really makes [desk] life so much cleaner. With a simple swipe of the brush crumbs and dust disappear and makes my desk here at Jack’s HQ look nice and tidy.
6. Keep food in the fridge & wash out dirty mugs:
We all have trouble getting through the day without eating some sort of pick-me-up, so I keep “desk snacks” in a special draw nearby. Keeping lunch or snacks in a designated drawer (mine are under the desk) reduces the amount of visible clutter and makes fresh food safer especially on hot days. Also remember to remove and clean your dirty tea and coffee cups as you have used them, you will be surprised how much better your desk looks and feels. Also saves time at the end of the office day.
5. Dispose of extraneous stuff:
Old papers, broken pens, receipts from 2005, a paperweight holding down air…if you aren’t using it throw it away.
6. File, file, file:
This one is basic. Filing cabinets exist for a reason. Use them! Shredders also exist for the same reason.
7. Straighten piles on the desk:
For those things that need to remain on your desk for some purpose or other, be it they can’t be filed yet, are still being used or whatever, there’s no reason they can’t be neat and tidy. Things have a way of multiplying themselves like the mops in our wharehouse. At the very least, it won’t look so messey. Keeping the piles of paper contained will probably make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for faster.
8. Have a dustbin nearby:
This is a biggie. Proximity is everything. The further away you have to go to get to a rubbish bin the less often and likely you do it! It doesn’t have to be a large receptacle, just something that will fit in your office/workspace near your desk.
9. A place for everything and everything in its place:
As much of a cliché as it is, this old adage is the most important. For the office or for anywhere in your house, having a drawer, a rack, a shelf, any designated space at all for your stuff is absolutely essential. It can’t be a mess if it put away…
