Here I have some of the best tips for busy Moms, now, if you are not a Mom, then you have it a lot easier, but if you are, then you may find these useful:
Have a Routine. When you know what you’re doing and where you’re headed, you’ll get things done quicker. Keep everything that you need close at hand and use things that work.
Pick Up While You Clean. Clutter can hinder you from getting to what needs to be cleaned. So, as you clean, pick up and put things away.
Stock Up on Cleaning Supplies. Instead of having all your cleaning supplies in one place, have multiples in several rooms. This way, you can do quick cleans.
If you have Kids, Wash Toys in Laundry Bag. Everyone knows toys can get pretty grimy. Throw them into a mesh bag and into the washer and they’ll come out all clean.
Hydrogen Peroxide is Your Cleaning Buddy. Hydrogen peroxide is an awesome multi-purpose fluid. You can spray it on cuts or sores. But, it can also be used to clean mirrors, windows, and toilets.
Use Pillowcases on Fans. If you want to give your fans a quick clean without the mess, cover them with pillowcases and wipe.
Utilize your Vacuum. Instead of sweeping your floors, just use your vacuum. Many have floor options now and it will save you lots of time. If you have a robot vacuum, setup a timer in the morning, perhaps as a an alarm system also.
Remove Pet Hair. Leave a lint roller in your living room so you can do quick wipe downs to remove pet hair. (Leave another in your car to use before you get out)
Get Rid of Water Stains. If you want streak free windows and mirrors, seriously try the Bounty towels with Dawn. They are amazing. I use them & then use a squeegee afterwards to wipe it off.

Use Old Toothbrushes. The garbage disposal can get nasty. Use an old toothbrush to scrub it down. Finish it off with a spritz of lemon juice for a fresh smell.
Scrub Your Oven. Put a layer of baking soda in your emptied oven and spritz it with vinegar. Get something else done while it soaks, then come back and it should wipe off pretty easily.
Clean Your wood. If your budding artists have gotten a little marker on your wood floor, just dab it with toothpaste and scrub it off.
Clean Your Carpet. Speaking of stains, spraying protein stains with peroxide will get those out. For tougher ones, spray some clear Windex on the stains, place a towel over it, and lightly iron it until it’s gone.
De-Grim Your Vents. Air vents are some of the hardest spots to clean but are extremely important for the safety of the house. Put a towel on a butter knife and wipe it along the vent for an easy clean.
Clean as You Go. Don’t leave everything to do all at once. Tidy and clean as you go.
Prioritize. Having a perfect home isn’t a necessity. Do what you can and if you fall behind, don’t be hard on yourself.
Use oils, for example, peppermint oil, mix a few drops with water and clean our granite countertops.
Delegate. Give out these chores to your kids and tasks to other people so you’re not stuck doing everything yourself. Children of all ages can do chores, just make sure they are age appropriate.
Good luck with the cleaning
