The Best Podcasts to Listen to While Cleaning: Turning a Chore into a Treat!

Changing your mindset about cleaning is often the first step in making thirty minutes or an hour picking up, scrubbing, or organizing a bit more bearable. The trick? Take something you’re not crazy about doing (say, sweeping and dusting) and add in something you enjoy. For some folks, that means listening to music, chatting on the phone with a friend, or simply enjoying the relative silence.

If those don’t work for you, or if you just need a change of pace, try a pod. You won’t be alone. According to a recent study, 37% of Americans listen to at least one podcast per month, while 24% listen to podcasts at least weekly. Part of the appeal of podcasts is the wide array of hosts, topics, and conversations to tune into!

Our Favorite Cleaning and Organizing Podcasts

We’ve found that the best podcasts for cleaning hit on a few key points.

  • They’re funny. Even if they’re a simple question and answer, cleaning podcasts that feature hosts with vibrant personalities make the show so much more entertaining.
  • They’re quick. Most home podcasts or cleaning podcasts are relatively short. This makes it easy to set a goal. If you’re going to clean for 15 minutes, find a podcast episode of equal length. When it’s done, you’re done! It also makes them more valuable if you’re trying to answer specific cleaning questions; since they’re short, you’ll have no trouble getting right to the solution you’ve been searching for.
  • They’re about a whole lot more. On many of these podcasts, cleaning is just the beginning. Expect to leave behind the clutter and cleaning tips for real-life stories, experiences, and laughs that go a bit beyond scrubbing the floor.
