Clean During and After Bath

With a spray-able bathroom cleaner, you can get your bathroom clean while in the shower. Simply spray the walls and let it work its magic then rinse off after your bath, no scrubbing needed.
Get an Entryway Door Mat
A quick and easy way to get away with not sweeping your floors every day is to invest in a door mat. This drastically cuts down the amount of sand, mud and dirt particles that make their way into your home on a daily basis. Ensure that visitors and member of your household wipe their shoes on the mat before entering the house. If you want to ensure absolute cleanliness, you may ask your visitors to leave their shoes at the door to make sure that dirt is not tracked into the house.
Line Fridge Drawers with Paper Towels
Fridge drawers are notorious for holding food stains, and are typically time consuming to clean. In order to make fridge cleaning quick and easy for you, we recommend you line fridge drawers with paper towels before putting any items inside. All spills and stains are caught in the paper towels which can be easily removed and replaced with fresh paper towels until you have enough free time to do a proper cleaning.
Store Cleaning Supplies Where Needed
Store cleaning supplies within easy to reach distances. Create supplies storage areas in the kitchen and bathroom, as this makes it easy to clean up messes immediately they are created without the added stress of searching the whole house or walking all the way to a central storage area for cleaning supplies and equipment.
Fitted Elastic Bed sheets
Your home is not fully tidied up until your bed is made. This can be a gruelling and time consuming task if you have multiple sheets, blankets, duvets, and pillows. Investing in bed sheets with elastic bands almost completely eliminates the need to lay the bed. Simply brush off the sheets, straighten the covers, fluff the pillows and you’re ready to go.
