House-cleaning is a continuous struggle against the grime and dust that results from using the home for living, but there are lots of ways to make your work more efficient – here is what I consider to be the easiest way to clean my house and maybe it can become the easiest way to clean for you, too.
The first activity in any cleaning process should be dusting, but simply going around the house with a feather duster or a piece of cloth to remove dust from the surfaces reduces the efficiency of the cleaning process. The dusting phase is actually a good opportunity to pick up things from the floor, to fold blankets and to fluff cushions. Move around the house strategically – start in one corner of the first room to be cleaned and don’t move to the second room until the first one is dusted and all the items are in the place where they should be. Don’t forget to dust the window frames, the blinds the ceiling fans and the baseboard, too.
Pay Special Attention to the Bathroom
Use efficient, but not too harsh chemicals to clean the bathroom. Spray or spread cleaners on the surfaces of the bathtub, on and inside the toilet, on the mirrors, on the shelves and on the racks, too. If you have not cleaned the bathroom in a while and the place has lots of stubborn spots, wait for a few minutes for the cleaners to take effect, then scrub, wipe and rinse everything. Remove hair and other dirt from the bathroom floor with a piece of cloth or with paper towels, then use a mop and some floor cleaning solution to restore the clean sparkle of the floor.
Take out your vacuum cleaner and start using it in the room that you cleaned first, moving on to the next room when you are done vacuuming the first one. Use different attachments to accelerate the process and vacuum on all surfaces, including not only the floor and the rugs, but the furniture, the fireplace and the closets as well.
When you are done vacuuming the rooms, move to the kitchen and vacuum it, too, before doing anything else there – it is easier to remove stubborn kitchen dirt if there is no dust or breadcrumbs in the way.

Start with the places that are usually the dirtiest in most kitchens: the fridge and the stove. When you are done there, move on to the dishwasher, the sinks, the smaller appliances and clean the cabinets as well. When everything is clean, grab your mop and wash the floor with some soap water. Start in the corner that is the farthest from the door and move towards the door to avoid having to step on the surface that you have already washed.
House cleaning is never an easy chore, but I find that a strategic approach is the easiest way to clean my house – try my method to make your moves efficient and economical at the same time and you will surely be able to clean your home quickly and without breaking your back.
