Here is a quick list of short cuts that I like to use around our house.
a. I always leave the ceiling fan running during a shower and at least 10 minutes after. That way your shower won't smell damp and moldy.
8. Keep your sidewalks and garages swept clean. Your inside floors are only as clean as their lead ins. As much as you think everyone might wipe their feet or take of their shoes-- they don't always do it.
9. If you don't want to clean because it's just too much of a hassle put a little money into short cuts. It's better than living in filth. My favorite short cuts are, paper towels, disposable toilet scrubbers, windex wipes, swiffer wet or dry, Clorox wipes, the Shark steam mop, the Swiffer vacuum, Purex laundry soap sheets and Electrasol dishwasher tabs.
10. This is the best tip yet. Have your kids and your husband help out. Kids can pull their weight too. My kids clean bathrooms, vacuum, mop, do laundry, dust, pick up toys, change sheets and other things. They really can do it. If Goob can do it, your kids can too. If you think they are a little too young assign them something easy like giving them a Clorox wipe and having them wipe down the door knob and light switches. It makes them feel important and it helps you get a clean house.
You don't have to be a domestic goddess to have a clean house. Anyone can do it with the right motivation. Happy cleaning!
