2) Pick up first:
It is impossible to clean a room if everything is on the floor. So you will have to pick up everything that is on the floor in every room of the house, before you start washing and cleaning.
3) Start a laundry every morning:
Always start a laundry in the morning. This small detail makes all the difference. In the evening when coming back from work, put the laundry in the dryer and in the evening you can fold the laundry while watching TV. This prevents you from accumulating too much laundry in the laundry room.

9) The best glass cleaner, anti scratch and non-toxic:
You will need:
-312.5 ml (1 1/4 cup) distilled water
-125 ml (1/2 cup) vodka
-62.5 ml (1/4 cup) white vinegar
-8-10 drops of essential oil of your choice
10) Restore the cabinets:
The oil on our hands leaves traces on the cabinet doors, which attracts dirt and leaves black marks on the varnished wood. To easily remove these marks, make a dough with baking soda and coconut oil and scrub with an old, soft-bristled toothbrush to make your cabinet shine.
