‘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?’
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.
