Keeping your home in tip-top shape doesn’t have to take up all of your time. In fact, a little bit of dusting here and a quick vacuum there, coupled with creative cleaning tips, save time in the long run. The key is to clean like a professional, says Leslie Reichert, a Boston-based cleaning coach and the author of The Joy of Green Cleaning. "Professionals don’t organize, sort or rearrange while they are cleaning," she says. "Just keep your focus on cleaning, and you’ll finish much quicker than before."
