Here is a list of routines that take little time but will leave you with a pretty clean kitchen every day:
Women clean more in their lifetimes than men. Women clean on average 13,000 hours in their lifetimes, men 6500 hours. Old habits live on!
Disneyland has oodles of actors walking around in cartoon costumes. That makes for 285,000 lbs of laundry every day!
How do you mop a large area of wood floor in the most efficient way? A string mop puts down too much water, and a microfiber mop requires that you change your mophead up to a dozen times, which is very time consuming. The solution: take a white towel, rinse it, then wring it out by hand. Then lay the towel flat on the ground and put the flat mop-head of a mop designed for microfiber mops down on it, flopping the extra towel material over the top of the mophead. The towel will give you one strip of it's surface at a time in contact with the floor and, as that strip gets dirty, you can keep moving to a new strip of the towel. You can cover a lot of area with just one towel--even more if it's not too dirty because you can use both sides.
