Find a place for everything. Keep your cleaning focused and try to move quickly. Pick a closet, then a bookshelf, under the bed, or a portion of the attic. This will help you remain focused and only thinking of one space.

For me, if I can have a home for everything, then it is easy to clean up....just put everything where it belongs. I try to clean one room a day; Mondays-bathroom, Tuesdays-living room etc. That way it is not so overwhelming and I know it will be done again a week later - nothing gets too dirty--except the floors as I have 3 large dogs who refuse to learn how to use the vacuum!

I am the worlds worst at it. I usually wait until I can just peek over the pile. Then set about it in a frenzy.. TV remotes disappear at regular intervals and I have a supply of four of them. Mainly the springer spaniel hoards them. Unusually he does not chew them, Just hides them all over..

I am a procrastinator, or rather, i used to be. Right now i tend to see myself as a recovering procrastinator.Experience has shown me that, things are easier to clean if i subdivide them into smaller tasks and do a little everyday.
If i let things pile up, i have a problem cleaning because everything is just so overwhelming.
My advice is to just start somewhere.If you start making excuses, soon you will find yourself in one of those hoarding reality programs because your life has ground to a halt.

Unfortunately, my best cleaning tip is building more shelves and storage space, which I have to do on a regular basis, as I probably am the worst pack rat in the world. I just cannot part with stuff. After I read a good book, I have to keep it. If I watch a good movie, I have to have the DVD so I can watch it again, I have to keep that holy T-shirt that more than deserves a happy retirement as rags, but I won't part with it because it's sooo comfortable. The walls are covered with paintings and prints from floor to ceiling. The list goes on and on. So, being a single guy, keeping things clean and organized is a permanent challenge, but I manage ! You never know when that special visitor is going to come over !
I buy a 1 dollar bottle of lemon cleaner at the store where all stuff is 1 dollar and I dilute it. I take 1/2 the bottle and mix it in my empty spray bottles which I rinse out thoroughly. I buy my bathroom cleaner at Target, it contains bleach, I use it for showers and sinks. I do not use dish detergent since I have a dishwasher. I clean kitchen sinks with the lemon cleaner.....This solution usually lasts over a month. I am a firm believer in cutting costs in all areas of our home.
I use bleach in laundry as needed, I usually mop with bleach once a month, the other weeks I use the lemon cleaner described above. Household germs are there but we do not have to spend a fortune to kill the germs and make our homes clean and smelling great. Lemon is also a scent that evokes romantic moods, so none of us can go wrong with the lemon recipe above! Happy Cleaning!

I have found that I have fallen into the category of forgetful when it comes to those things that really should be cleaned regularly but aren't. To combat this oversight, I created this Hub in hopes that I will now be forced to create a checklist and maybe even add to this list as I find things that really need some TLC.
Check out my newest Hub on my take for better cleaning: http://goldenthreadpress.hubpages.com/h … -Regularly
I queried: What is the best all around dusting spray and why? http://goldenthreadpress.hubpages.com/q … ay-and-why Check out Sharkye11's suggestion for Behold brand spray--noted as "best" answer.
My secret cleaning weapon of choice is vinegar (distilled white):
1. Add to dishwater and you can shine silverware and cut grease.
2. Mix a little with baking soda and you can get rid of stove top grit and grime.
3. Use undiluted to clean tubs, tiles and floors.
4. Add to your laundry (***WITHOUT BLEACH) to clean, whiten, and remove stains and odors.
5. Clean your ovens and microwaves.
Just about anything you can think of!
And it's green!
My tip would be to go into it with a separate goal-like-weight loss or strength- and take a (Mr. Siagi?) Karate kid teacher, approach in your movements.
I think that, for me, motivation is the biggest factor in getting cleaning done, so when I need some extra cash, it suddenly becomes time for me to clean out my closets. And here's what I do with the stuff I find...

I've learned to curb my sentimentality and not save so much junk that I don't really need or use very often or look at very often. Watching the show "Hoarders" also helps scare me into keeping my home in order. I highly recommend it if you have hoarding tendencies!
Everyone has to clean house. If you're gamed: Clean from top to bottom. This takes up some time, but if you do it one room at a time, about four and a half hours you'll be done. Just remember, your house will stay clean as long as you don't get laxed about putting things in its place once you're done. A place for everything and everything in its place. That's what I was told and taught by my grandmother. When you get out of bed in the morning, turn around and make it up. If you start washing your dishes as you once you've finished your prep, it's less you have to wash. And just don't forget this one final note...A womans work is never done!
Just check out my new hub, I've several of them...my specialty!
Here are some tips for the cleaning your house..
1. Daily cleaning regime
2. Use a timer
3. Go for the minimalist approach

6. Steam clean the microwave
7. Use newspaper to clean windows

9. Use the dishwasher for things other than dishes
10. Emergency Wipes
