Household cleaning is a chore no matter which way you look at it. It has to be done and it has to be efficient so that it takes up as little time as possible. Most of us work so the less free time spent on cleaning the house the better in my opinion. So whilst scouring the man made universe of the Internet I started to think about how the hell could I keep my place clean in the most cost and time efficient manner possible.
The more I began to dig around the more I found some marvellous tips and tricks that would help me accomplish just that. During my search I compiled a list of some of the best techniques that I could find to help me. But, because Im a nice guy, I thought I’d share them with you to help claw back both money as well as precious free time to be spent on the things in life that you love instead.
