After having a newborn, keeping the house clean can be a real chore. Let’s be honest, keeping the house clean is always a ‘chore.’ However, after having a baby, I seem to struggle with keeping the house as clean as I’d like. Check out these tips for keeping the house clean with a newborn in the house.

#1. Clear the Clutter
Anytime I can get rid of extra items in the house that we’re not using, I do! There’s something invigorating about getting rid of clutter that we don’t need lying around our home. I have found that this is one way I can help keep my home clear of clutter and make keeping the house clean a lot easier.
#2. Write Out a Schedule
I keep a basic schedule at home of when I will clean what. Of course, since a newborn dictates my schedule, it’s a very flexible schedule. I have found that if I write out what I need done, it’s much easier. For example–Mondays are my laundry days and Tuesdays are the days to get the vacuuming done.
#3. Keep the Stench Away
If I’m being honest, one of the hardest parts of having a newborn at home is getting used to the stinky stench of frequent poopy diapers. This time around, we gave the Bubula Stainless Steel Diaper Pail a try! We received the plain white one and it was very basic to figure out. There were several things we liked about the Bubula that encourages us to keep using it in our home. Here’s what we loved about it:
- Easy to use
- Uses standard-size can liners
- Tall base
- Love that it can be used as a long term trashcan.
There were some things I struggled with, use wise though. The Bubula Stainless Steel Diaper Pail doesn’t stay locked and away from tiny hands, my kids could open it no problem. Also, I can still smell poopy diapers when I’m in the room with the pail and I was hoping to avoid that. Lastly, when I’m removing the standard liner from the pail it actually rips the trash bag a little. I’ve yet to spill dirty diapers on the floor though, go me!
Despite the few issues I had with the Bubula Stainless Steel Diaper Pail, it is an easy to way store dirty diapers instead of putting them into your regular trash can.
The Bubula Stainless Steel Diaper Pail is available on Amazon for $98.99 and free shipping.
