Paid cleaning help can be a wonderful short-cut to a clean and organized home but if you want to do yourself then you have to think that how you can do that fast.
For fast cleaning Simplify Supplies
• light-duty evaporating cleaner (glass cleaner or multi-surface cleaner)
• heavy-duty degreasing cleaner
• tile cleaner
• powdered abrasive cleanser
These four simple products can handle any ordinary cleaning chore.

Is this article paid for by Swiffer? The sweeper/vac is useless. It takes 24 hours to charge and will not even vacuum a medium sized room! How on earth is it going to clean the entire house? Waste of money. I have a B&B, and will argue with several of these "tips". I use a Miracle cloth for most of the cleaning I do, whether dusting, polishing mirrors or even celaning the sink. Swiffer dusters are not as god.

These house hold tips for cleaning the house is going to be very helpful to me. I liked The Swiffer Sweeper Vac and feel it will do a better job than a broom and dustpan. I also like the Swiffer Duster which traps and lock the dust.

Change your furnace filter -- I really like the 3M Allergan series and find that Costco carries them quite reasonably priced. The filter acts like the lungs to your house and can trap a lot of particulates which dramatically reduces the dust and surface dirt. I change my filter every other month in the summer and have my furnace properly cleaned every 3 years.

Makes such a huge difference to the amount of dust in the house. I live in Calgary which is quite dry and windy so lots of dust.

Check out Flylady.net - rubba scrubba makes short work of household grime, I love the rags in a bag -- yes, they do clean mirrors using the soft side and the rough side can clean everything else, FlyLady's Rubba Swisha toilet bowl brush is fantastic.
