Some of us were never doing anything but that


My place really could be doing with a "10 minute tidy". Thanks for the household hints. I'll do it tomorrow.

Before i bought my house, i lived in a tiny but beautiful little building. (my grandmother called it "the submarine.") It was a challenge to keep it clean and orderly, but absolutely necessary in so small a space. So i heard about this guy who trained professional house cleaners and who had developed a system. I decided to try it... and it was fantastic! In LESS time, my house was about three times cleaner than if i'd house cleaned the ordinary way! In a half hour i'd have the bathroom, kitchen, livingroom and bedroom completely cleaned, dusted, and vacuumed, in systematic and thorough fashion.

Anyway, he's written books and i once saw a video:

And he also sells his particular (and environmentally friendly) cleaning supplies. I would say you can substitute for all of them EXCEPT the apron is really necessary to the technique:
