December is upon us and it seems to be the busiest month of the year. And cleaning your home, just takes up too much of that precious time! Here are six tips to get your home sparkling and jolly:

1) Make every move count. That means work around the room once. Going back and forth from one room to another is really what takes up the most time.

2) Work from top to bottom. Always. Period. Don’t argue. This is key to not spread dirt and dust where you have already cleaned.

3) If it isn’t dirty don’t clean it. For example, vertical surfaces are almost never as dirty as horizontal surfaces. Skip them this time and only touch each surface once. Do it right the first time!

4) If what you’re doing isn’t working, then shift to a heavier-duty cleaner or tool.

5) Pay attention. Almost everything else will fall into place if you do. In Latin: Age quod agis – “Do what you are doing.”

6) If there’s more than one of you, work as a team. If your helper gets done ten minutes faster, the team gets done ten minutes faster. And that is a wonderful thing!
