10 Quick Fixes To Spruce Up Your Home In 5 Minutes
Even when there’s just no time for a thorough cleaning spending as little as five minutes a day can go a long way toward keeping your home spruced up. What can you do in just five minutes?

  • Sweep the front steps and shake out the welcome mat – If there’s a minute left over, run a dust cloth over the front door. Guaranteed to make guests feel more welcome.
  • Take a duster to the ceiling fans – A couple of quick swishes are all it will take to banish all that built-up dust.
  • Spritz the bathroom mirrors – You may be surprised to find you can have them  shining in five minutes or less.
  • Challenge the kids to a five-minute pickup – A small prize to the one who picks up and stows away the most stuff in five minutes.
  • Check the fridge – Do a quick scan of produce and ‘best by” date labels, and pitch what’s been around for too long.
  • Spray the kitchen counters and cooktop – Do it during a TV commercial break, then wipe it all clean during the next one.
  • Run a baby wipe over the baseboards – The vacuum cleaner just doesn’t reach there!
  • Wipe down the flat screen TVs – If you don’t have the proper type of cloth, use the dust-free wipe you use to clean your eyeglasses.
  • Run a mop or broom into the dark corners of the hallway.
  • Check your stock of light bulbs and batteries – If it’s low, make a note for your next shopping list.
