Furniture-free Extreme Minimalist Apartment Cleaning Routine


Hello, friends, this is Youheum. I’m an extreme minimalist practicing furniture-free living. Today I’ll be sharing my
apartment cleaning routine including surfaces, bathroom, dishes, and laundry.
I’ll also share my low-waste and sustainable cleaning tools including my
non-toxic all-purpose cleaning solution. In my space, I use these a zafu instead of
a couch. And I have a collapsible floor desk instead of a full writing desk.
Since I’m on the floor often practicing active sitting, meditating, eating on the
floor, and just chilling, I try to keep the floor clean as much as possible. Also
if you want to full tour of my furniture-free apartment, feel free to
check it out. I don’t own or use a vacuum cleaner but I have used it in the past.
I no longer have it since I gave it away and the reason why is because I do
enjoy cleaning in silence. This allows me to be mindful the practice of cleaning. Sometimes I notice that I’m just cleaning away without a single
distracting thought entering into my mind when I clean in silence. I also
think that my cat values quietness and calm vibes more than anyone in this
house. For me, I tend to go for collapsible and compact items,
this includes my cleaning tools for a floor cleaning. I have a simple
microfiber rag, a detachable quick loop mop, and a plant-based brush. I also have
a dustpan that comes in handy for cat litter. First thing I do is to sweep the
dust into the corner. Sometimes I skip this if I feel lazy. It is important
for me to keep up with my weekly cleaning schedule but it’s also good to
listen to my own level of comfort and my needs. So if I feel tired,
I don’t really force myself to clean. When all the sweeping is done, I use the
dustpan to collect everything. At the moment, these are being thrown out as
regular trash but feel free to share any sustainable methods with us because I’m
currently wondering if dust can actually be composted and if it’s okay to take it
to my community garden. After step one and two, I use my wet mop to go over the
floor once again. This collects all the dust that I missed
and I use my all-purpose cleaner while I go. I also make sure that there’s good
ventilation since I don’t really want my cat to be uncomfortable. I am aware that
some people, they love having the convenience of a vacuum or an efficient
chemical cleaner and that’s completely ok. I know that certain tools are
necessary especially if someone is physically limited in movement. So I’m
simply here to share what works for me in this present moment. I do spend more
time cleaning because I’m not relying on vacuum cleaners or other useful things. For me, cleaning is also a part of my mindfulness practice. I also like how I
can sneak in some natural movement like squatting and stretching while cleaning.
I have noticed that when I get close to the objects that I own, for instance, when
I get close to the floor, I notice all the patterns, spots, and marks. I
sometimes see what I often miss when I simply slow down and look closely at
what is already here. So cleaning definitely allows me to be more grateful
and more aware of what I own in my life. Also, be sure to share with me what
changes you made in your own cleaning routine or what changes do you hope to
make in order to align with minimalism and sustainability. Let us know in the
comments below. Some of you already know that I use my Scrubba bag and homemade laundry detergent for hand washing. I’ll leave a link in the descriptions for the
recipe if you missed it. I tend to do small batches of laundry with my
Scrubba but of course I use my apartment communal laundromat for large loads like my hammock bed, cotton throw, and area rugs. I do hand washing three to
four times a week for socks and undies. But for my outfits, I do it once a week. I
know that some of you asked me how clean it gets. So far I’m very satisfied
with my detergent and handwashing method. It does smell and feel fresh at
the end. I can also add some essential oil fabrics spay if I want.
I think the Austin heat and sun gets rid of the germs too. So I choose to do
laundry by hand mainly because I have a 15 item capsule wardrobe. I just
don’t have enough clothing to fit in the laundry
machine. I have to wash my clothes frequently. If you want, feel free to
check out my capsule wardrobe video. I will also be doing a step-by-step video on
how I fold my clothes compactly in the future. I’ve been using diluted vinegar
as a cleaner for many years. I love how simple, low-waste, and cost-effective it
is. It’s just filtered water and organic vinegar. I don’t put any essential oils
any more since it can be toxic to my cat. But if you don’t have a pet, feel free to
add a few drops in it. I don’t really think that the smell is too strong and
it goes away very quickly. So if you’re hesitant about that, it’s not too bad.
I’ll leave a link to my blog post with all the natural cleaning tools and also
this recipe so feel free to head over after watching this video if you want
the full list. I used the same solution and an organic bamboo rag for cleaning
other surfaces like the top of my mantle. But not on the marble counter top since
the vinegar can be too strong. So I’m currently just using water and a
bit of soap. Feel free to share any natural ways to clean marble tops. You
might have already guessed how much I love soap! I use a bar of soap for
everything including washing my dishes. I also have a crocheted hemp scrubber and a Japanese Tawashi scrubbing brush. This lasts very long, its plant-based, and it’s very durable. I’m enjoying it so far. My cultural
background definitely influenced my decision to become an extreme minimalist. This is mainly because most Korean people are used to sleeping on the
floor, sitting, and eating on the floor, also cleaning the floor by hand, and
doing small batches of laundry by hand. That’s why I’m open to other people’s
approach when it comes to lifestyle choices and their unique method of
maintaining their space. The bathroom is usually the last place I tackle since
this is my least favorite. I used the same all-purpose cleaner, a wooden
coconut fiber brush, and my silicone washing gloves. I found this after
searching for a reusable long-lasting dishwashing glove that doesn’t tear so
easily. For the tub, I’m using a short natural brush but the only downside to
wooden brushes is that it becomes moldy and it becomes discolored if it’s not
dried properly. So I recommend giving it plenty of sun after use. I do try my
best to align with my low-waste goals. That’s why I go for natural cleaning tools and try to be chemical-free as much as possible. But I know that it’s difficult
to be 100% sustainable within budget. So I simply focus on trying my best
without striving for perfectionism. I know that being organized and clean
might not matter for some people. That’s completely okay and I’m happy that
you are content with where you are. If cleanliness matters to you at this
moment in your life, I can completely relate. In the past, I thought that if I
can’t clean and live in an organized way that I am a bad and irresponsible person.
That’s why I hated a part of myself that allowed things to pile up. Now I
believe that cleaning is not really about removing bad things in order to
become the perfect minimalist adult. For me, it is about embracing all parts of
myself including my clutter, my messiness, and the distractions in my life. When
I am able to embrace all parts of myself I can see that cleaning is not really
about arriving at the ultimate cleanliness but it is about my own
process and my own folding. I think it only matters that I took some time in my
day to commit to this practice as much as I can with intention and
mindfulness. It really doesn’t matter what it looks like and it doesn’t matter
that my life is not perfectly organized in all aspects. I’m glad to share this
message with you. If you enjoy this video please like and subscribe to my channel.
Also, if you need more tips on getting unstuck with decluttering and organizing,
feel free to get started with my Minimalist Workbook. Thanks again for
being here my friends and I hope to see you again soon.

Since I read many blog / articles about Microfiber, it seems "not so good for environment", so I stop using them and switched to cotton cloth.

I'm living in Japan and there is a cotton cloth called "SARASHI" which I recommend. well absorb water/liquid, just hang it after doing dishes and will dry quickly. you can also use it as wash cloth, floor mop, body towel etc… My grandmother made cloth diaper out of it when I was a baby 😛

Thank you for making this video. it's very useful as always. I love your voice , love all of your video!!

This year i've been focusing on reducing the amount of cleaning products and tools I use and focusing more on the quality, I want to eventually make my own cleaning mixtures. I think one of the worst things I was using was disposable kitchen towels and wet wipes, I switched to a roll of reusable bamboo towels that can be washed hundreds of times and they are perfect.

Your videos are definitely one of the few catalysts in my life that is helping me let go of even more material objects in my life when I already thought I was minimalist enough. : ) I'm selling things and finding things new homes before the last resort of taking them to goodwill (since everyone is really getting into minimalism or even just decluttering all their extra stuff!). I'm also encouraging myself to take care of little things that might be a minor nuisance in my day (such as cutting off bulky tags on my facial washrag and handtowels or painting the annoying little patch of white paint on my muted blue wall, and my favorite: finally getting my ears professionally re-pierced since the back of the earlobes had holes that were too small and made wearing earrings, a once favorite thing of mine, painful… my mom pierced my ears over 12 years ago with one of those simple plastic earing-piercing kits that just puncture the earlobe, nothing clean and need like hollow-needle piercing!) and tackling errands and appointments that need to be done (and often clutter my life by being in the form of papers received in the mail about something needing attention). I even got rid of my filing cabinet yesterday since I managed to downsize to a single fireproof filing box for all my important papers (and even warranty papers for some of my husband's multiple electronic items). I hope my husband will see the value of minimalism, as part of the reason I am minimizing is that it helps me focus on the things I love to do (which don't involve many of my material objects). He tends to lose things, forgets about certain bills/papers, and get very frustrated because of it; so having less stuff should be of value to him too… I hope one day he will let go of many things he hasn't used in years.

I currently rent an apartment with wall-to-wall carpeting but I like to vacuum it everyday as part of my morning routine especially if my cats track cedar litter everywhere. Goal is to eventually move to an apartment or home with hardwood flooring mostly for my partner's wishes for less stimulation on her feet when barefoot. I had been using my own cleaning solutions for years but lately I had been embracing making my own laundry detergent, cutting cleaning rags out of old sheets and clothes that I cannot donate, and doing small patches of laundry by hand inspired by your methods. I feel so calm and peaceful when I watch your videos so I try to incorporate it into my lifestyle for a less stimulating and comforting home.

Oh my goodness… I get it. I just realized what you're trying to teach people. All the beautiful shots in your videos aren't just to share the different aesthetics of your lifestyle – they're about stopping and realizing how beautiful and precious every single moment of life is. The texture of drywall. The tiny little pads on your cat's paws that resemble pebbles. The feel of wringing out a towel.

My little infant is completely mesmerized with the most mundane and that's how we can be as adults. The world is still as wonderful as it's always been. We don't need distractions like TV. We just need to breathe and be grateful for every second. The distractions keep us distracted from the beauty in which we are already enmeshed.

Omg. Thank you so much, Youheum. Your videos came to me at a time I really needed it. Thank you thank you thank you.

Here in Brazil most of us use brooms instead of a vacuum cleaner and that's just pretty normal. I dreamed about having a vacuum cleaner only because in my parents house (where I live) they have a lot of furniture that gather dust. But when I have my own house, I'll try to have waay less things touching the floor. I enjoy sitting on the floor, always have. I feel more comfortable and safe, for some reason.

I like minimalist cleaning routine. I use vacuum cleaner only few times a month. I usually remove cat hair and dirt with a wiper that is kinda like a squeegee but for floors. sorry, english is not my native language so I don't know what it's in english. I'm a professional cleaner so I use a professional version at work too. also less is more with cleaners. many people have the misconception that if you use more floor cleaner it will be cleaner, when in reality it just builds up on the floor making dirt stick to it more and making it unsanitary. if you wash your floors every week it's actually better to wash it with cleaner only every other week. the other time just wet the towel with water and you're good to go.

Quick hint about vinegar: actually is less biodegradable than citric acid. Try citric acid instead! It's basically like lemon juice but with powerful effecst against limes (so not on marble, please) and as fabric and hair conditioner! Search more and you will switch to citric acid! ?✌️

In our home we’ve switched from paper towels to reusable rags for all of the surface cleaning in our house. We do still use paper towels to clean the toilet(because ew, lol), but it’s reduced our environmental impact and expenses considerably. You don’t realize how many disposable cleaning products you use until you stop using them!

We also have an HE washing machine, so it uses as little water and energy as possible, as well as natural detergents for our clothes. I’ve also taken to line drying most of my clothes because it’s gentler on my clothing, extending their life.

I have been chemical-free for 20 years due to having MCS syndrome. I use dr. Bronner's castile bar soap and liquid soap for shampoo and everything. Clean with Borax and baking soda. Seventh Generation products offer free and clear type with no fragrances, additives excetera so I use them also. I can only wear cotton clothing which is very hard to find these days so I thrift-shop some too. Do not have a vacuum cleaner but use dust mop on wood floors and a non-electric sweeper machine like used in 1900 when no electric. I don't buy any new furniture Etc that out gases toxins which most do. I buy second-hand everything pretty much. That helps our Mother Earth ?

The detergent seems great, I am currently washing everything in the machine with TERRAWASH and it changed my routine completely! It lasts a whole year and it cleans perfectly, no plastic and when it's over you can use it as a fertilizer in the garden!

I am thinking of buying natural brushes, brooms for my place but I do have carpet which sucks so I have to have a vacuum that I got for free because I am allergic to dust.

I watch Korean vloggers and most are very organised but none are zero/low waste nor minimalist, maybe ones in rural areas are?

I want to start making my own cleaners to stop buying products for the environment and to save money.

Normally dust contains a lot of tiny particles of plastic (from clothing and other plastic items), so i would not recommend composting it. However your home seems to be plastic-free, so maybe your dust is really biodegradable? You'd have to check it under a microscope to be really sure.

Don’t use Apples ? wireless keyboard and mouse as they emit radiation. Disable your Bluetooth and use only wired keyboard and mouse and that will be good for your cat ? as well. Live long!

Get a mattress on the floor – much safer for you and your cat. You can fall or easily from this bed of yours and also the walls are not holding that easily. The holes are widened by your movement. I think this is really a risk to live like that.

Dust can absolutely be composted!

I also wonder if you have any concerns about using microfiber cloth because of the problem with microplastics being leached into our water ways when we launder those fabrics?

Where did you get the hemp dish scrubber from? I currently use cotton rags/dishcloths but am looking for a more sustainable switch.

I've cleaned with vinegar for years and love that it's so versatile! I even use it for cleaning fresh fruits & veggies. I also clean the drains regularly with baking soda and vinegar. I don't have carpets so sweeping is easy care.
