Hate household cleaning? These simple tricks will help you maintain a tidy home without too much work.
1) Take your shoes off at the door. Studies show that 80% of dirt in our homes gets tracked in on the soles of our shoes. Put a stylish metal bucket or tray just inside your entryway to place your shoes in as soon as you get home.
2) Spot clean your bathroom. Thoroughly cleaning your bathroom can take a lot of effort, but you can save time by cleaning problem areas as needed. For example, wipe down the sink when you notice scum starting to form, or take a scrub brush and some surface cleaner with you the next time you jump in the shower.
3) Put things in their places. Clutter piles up quickly, but you can easily avoid major tidying sessions by putting things where they belong instead of setting them down to be put away later.
