More Things to Clean in 5 Minutes or Less
Its a great strategy to always have things to clean in mind when you have a random 5 minutes here and there that you have that you can clean something or fix something. This article will break it down by room for you! Sometimes when you think of cleaning in only large tasks it can be intimidating - especially to manage it in small amounts of time. This is great for keeping up your house with out your house getting out of control and without you spending tons of time on it. This article is specific to Bathrooms and Kitchens. I have left an area at the bottom, if you decide to print this article, that you can place things that you come up with to add to the Quick Clean Routine for your living space.

You can print this article out and keep it in a place where you can refer back to it - on the fridge, in your planner, on your memo board, etc. You can also use these as "incentive" chores to get your children on task or for them to "earn" a privilege from you. Be creative!
