5 Surprisingly Quick Cleaning Projects
Short on time, and trying to get your home in ship-shape? Make a regular routine of these easy cleaning projects that each take less than 20 minutes.
1. Mop the Bathroom Floors
Time Required: 20 Minutes
Grab a bucket and your favourite mop and give some TLC to your bathroom floors. Focus on corners and stuck-on materials first and then spread out to the cleaner parts of the room.
2. Clean the Mirrors and Windows
Time Required: 15 Minutes
Pick two rooms, bedrooms or sitting rooms, and focus on the windows. With glass cleaner in hand, start from the top and work your way down, making sure not to leave any streaks. For an old-fashioned trick, use newspaper to make the windows sparkle.
3. Dust the Living Room
Time Required: 10 Minutes
Electronics and lamps can get dusty quickly. Take a feather duster or dust-removing spray and get behind all of the nooks and crannies in your entertainment system and surrounding surfaces.
4. Empty the Trash Bins
Time Required: 5 Minutes
Grab a large garbage bag and go from room to room in your home and empty out trash bins.
5. Gather Dirty Dishes
Time Required: 1 Minute
Grab all of the cups, plates, and rogue cutlery around the house and take them directly to the sink or dishwasher.
