Speed Cleaning Your Home

If you’re looking to cut your cleaning time in your home, then consider the following tips:

Put on some music, set a timer for 15 minutes and focus on the room you are about to clean, and challenge yourself to see how much you can get done in that time by making it a game. If possible work get others involved like a team effort.
Have your supplies with you in something that you can easily tote around.  Make sure you have the right tools for the job within easy reach. Also consider having a tote for different rooms, for example a different  one for kitchen than the bathroom.  This helps not get supplies mixed up and are ready to go when the cleaning needs doing.
Pick up stuff that doesn’t belong on the floor so you can clean about freely and not trip over stuff.
Use gravity to your cleaning advantage, and start at the top and work your way down. Start dusting first, from the top and work your way down before vacuuming.
Clean what’s dirty and leave the rest! Work your way around the room, and clean what needs cleaning from top to bottom, then move on to the next section and vacuum the whole area last.
Keep on top of clutter, as you bring in the mail, or newspapers, don’t just lay them down anywhere, put junk mail in recycle boxes, and newspapers and papers in a organized place for them.  
If your cleaning the bathroom or kitchen, put cleaner on surface, then clean surfaces  and  then rinse once. By thoroughly cleaning and then rinsing takes less time as opposed to starting and stopping.
