15. Consider reducing the total size of your homeIf you’re planning to build or buy a new home, really think about how much space you need. If you maximise the functionality of your home, you may not need nearly as much space as you think. It’s just simple logistics that the larger your home is, the longer it takes to clean. If you’re not moving to a new home, then just reducing the amount of stuff you have in your home will also help. Wherever it makes sense, declutter, purge and divest yourself of things that take up your time and energy to care for.Bonus tip: This photo shows my favourite tip to reduce cleanup time.

Extra care in the kitchenThe kitchen is the pests’ favourite place to live and grow. At night, clear all food items from the table or keep them tightly covered. Do not leave used dishes in the sink overnight. Make sure the dustbin is not left open at any time. Use organic cleaners and detergents to clean the kitchen countertops, floor and cabinetry.
