Kitchen.. Always clean while you cook. Wipe up those splatters while they are still wet. Wash the dishes as you dirty them and let them air dry. Put a wet wash rag in the microwave to make clean up easier.
Bathroom.. To help remove soap scum on your shower curtain, put a towel in the washer with it, and wash on hot. To clean rust inside your toilet bowl, purchase Lysol Rust and Lime toilet bowl cleaner.
Bedroom.. If you don't like folding sheets, just wash the sheets and put them back on the bed as soon as they are dry. Tired of sorting sock? Have a lingerie bag for each person in the household. Fill with dirty socks. Wash the entire bag of dirty socks, then dry and return to owner. No need to sort.
