15+ Satisfying Photos That Prove a Good Home Is a Clean Home

There are many reasons to hate cleaning: you can get dirty and it takes a lot of time and energy. Any of these reasons are true. But there is hardly a person in this world who doesn’t like the feeling of cleanliness after entering a room that has been totally organized or the smell of fresh bed sheets.


At Bright Side, we love the feeling of contentment that you get after a proper cleaning. And we know for sure that the heroes of this article have felt it too. Just look at these “before” and “after” photos. Also at the end of the article, you’ll find 2 bonuses, one of which will show what the simple desire to wash dishes can lead to.

“I’m trying to get my life together after a difficult period.”

“I finally got around to cleaning my post-operation mess. I’m feeling fresh!”


“I cleaned the playroom.”

“This cupboard has been bothering me for a year and I finally had both the time and motivation to tackle it.”

“400 feeder crickets got loose in my room forcing the need for an emergency deep clean. It was exhausting but I already feel so much better.”


“I cleaned my desk.”

“I love seeing floors that were covered for a long time. I always say ’I found the floor.’”

Just look at the seams between the tiles.


“I lost my job and have spent the better part of the last 3 weeks in a pretty depressed state. I’m already feeling better now that I’ve got a clean space.”

“I finally cleaned my room.”

“Before and after in my closet. I can hardly believe it’s the same place.”


“A lot of bleach and a lot of scrubbing!”

  • I clean professionally and would hire you in a heartbeat, you did an amazing job! For your information, that pink slime in your grout is a bacterium called Serratia Marcescens that grows in damp areas, fortunately it’s much easier to get rid of than mold. © Sparkling_Clean / Reddit

“I finally cleaned my oven today! (Yes, it was long overdue.)”

“My ex moved out yesterday so my bathroom got a glow up.”

Bonus 1: “Do aquariums count?”

Bonus 2: “I woke up at 1 a.m. and felt restless, wanted a cup of coffee, but all the mugs were dirty.”

“Just doing dishes turned into painting the wall and putting together that IKEA kitchen island. I finally have a kitchen where I can cook!”
