You can set your timer on your phone just long enough, or if you have an Alexa ask her to do it for you. This cleaning hack is so simple for when you’re just getting started.

5- Focus

Focus on one room at a time.


Ask your kids and partner to help with the washing up, dishwasher, or tidying after meals.
