  • Wipe down the shower screen with a squeegee every time you use it.
  • Empty the dishwasher before you start cooking. You’ll be able to put your cooking and dinner dishes immediately into the dishwasher leaving your kitchen clean and tidy.

  • While watching television, have a dust around during any commercial breaks.
