‘I do my own house­work but have re­cently started a full-time job, so time is lim­ited. What time-sav­ing tips do you have for me?’

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR HOME -

THERE WILL AL­WAYS be daily tasks like wip­ing down kitchen coun­ters and do­ing the wash­ing up, but why not break up other tasks into man­age­able chunks dur­ing the week so you don’t have to spend half your week­end clean­ing? Clean the bath­rooms one night, vac­uum car­pets on an­other and dust on an­other. Mul­ti­task­ing clean­ing prod­ucts that can be used on a va­ri­ety of sur­faces are ideal and it’s a good idea to in­vest in the best tools you can af­ford: from a vac­uum cleaner that works re­ally hard to a de­cent mop and mi­crofi­bre cloths. Also – be re­li­gious about de­clut­ter­ing so there’s less to clean.
