Anyone can find 5 minutes to spare! Start by setting a 5 minute timer, per room and try to beat the clock – setting a time limit breaks down big jobs into manageable tasks.

Freshen Up That Garbage Disposal

Can’t seem to get rid of that kitchen sink smell?  Try cutting up a few lemons, put them in your garbage disposal, and run with cold water to get rid of the smells.

Cleaning baseboards doesn’t have to break your back!  Spray an old sock with some all purpose cleaner and run your foot along baseboards to get those hard to reach corners.

Find Your Inner Marie Kondo
