If you’re like most people, then cleaning your house is not something you look forward to. After all, it tends to take up a lot of time, which most busy people of today don’t have.

The good news is that there are many things you can do to speed up the cleaning process and to get your house looking great in no time at all.

Do a Quick Clutter Pickup

One easy thing you can do is to walk through each room of your house with a large basket or box in hand. As you move from room to room, pick up any clutter you see and then put it in the basket.

Your house will instantly look better. If you’re pressed for time, you can even tuck the box or basket away in a closet somewhere and sort it out later.

Of course, the best thing to do, if you’re able, is to go through the box or basket when you’re done. Get rid of anything that you don’t need and find a right spot to store anything else.

If you can repeat this once a week, you’ll find that you’ll rid your house of clutter a little bit at a time and develop a proper place for everything you own.

Dump Your Dust

One mistake that people commonly make when they dust is that they sweep up their mess as they go.

However, you will find dusting much faster and easier if you just dust right onto the floor. That’s right; when you swipe a dresser top or anything else with the duster, just let the dust fall where it will.

You will go back through after and mop and/or vacuum your floors, so there’s no reason to worry about dust as you go.

Doing your dusting this way should make the process a lot less overwhelming and a whole lot faster to boot.

Skip all the Pre-Washing

You’ve probably been told all your life that you should rinse off your dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

However, contrary to what you may have been led to believe, there is no evidence that doing so gets your dishes any cleaner.

So, go ahead and skip that silly rule. Save yourself time by merely scraping excess food into the trash or garbage disposal and then sticking your dishes in the dishwasher.

You’ll find that you save a lot of time and that you get to enjoy the luxury of owning a dishwasher.
