Use extra smarts, not extra sweat, for a quick cleaning session.
Learn the moves
In each room, work from top to bottom and from left to right in either a rectangular or circular motion. Dirt follows the laws of gravity, so start at the top and clean your way down; that way, you don’t need to redo surfaces. In the kitchen and bathrooms, save the sink for last because you will use it to rinse soiled cloths.
