- Set a timer for a 15-minute burst of cleaning. One of the easiest ways to save time cleaning is to do a little de-cluttering every day. Spending just 10 to 15 minutes a day really can save you a lot of time and grief on big cleaning days. Also, having a designated location for everything can increase the productivity of the time you spend tidying up.
- Start from the top and work your way down. Gravity affects everything, even household dust. Save the floors for last to keep from having to clean them twice.
- Clean as you go. This is a tried-and-true way to save time when cleaning, especially when it comes to your kitchen and bathroom. While cooking, be sure to wipe surfaces as you go and place utensils and bowls used during prep in the sink. Cleaning spills on your stovetop as they happen will help prevent crusted-on stains to deal with after dinner. Similarly, make sure to wipe away any soap scum or toothpaste on your bathroom sink daily. Keep basic cleaning supplies throughout your home to help build this habit and for easy access.
