Clean Your House in One Hour
Plan your cleaning attack
The key to cleaning your house is to work logically. Work from room-to-room and top to down (e.g., clean countertops before the carpet).
Six-minute bedroom blitz
Start with the bedroom. Replace bed linen and wipe surfaces. Bedrooms are often uncluttered, so this should take around six minutes.
Seven-minute bathroom sparkle
Spray the sink and bath/shower and allow it to sit while you work on the toilet. Rinse the tub and sink, leaving the floor for later.
Clean a living room in 7 minutes
Living rooms can be cleaned in minutes. Start in one corner and dust surfaces from left-to-right. Vacuum chairs and floors to finish.
Re-using saves time and effort
Clean dishes and wipe the hob with warm soapy water. Rinse and reuse the sponge for the countertops. Mop the floor and reuse in the bathroom.

My toilet has never sparkled like this! Start by gathering vinegar and baking soda from your pantry. You can also pick up some essential oil to add a fresh touch. Then, head on over to that dingy, dirty toilet...

Unclog a Toilet Without a Plunger

This is the coolest trick to unclog a toilet. It's so much cleaner than using a plunger. I can’t promise it will work every time for you, but it worked every time I tried it. All you need is dish soap and hot water.
