    A spray bottle kept in the shower with watered down white vinegar. Spray on walls at end of each shower. Dries with no smell and kills mould.

    Thanks! So far I have used microfibre cloths on the French door windows, got a bulk pack of cheap baby wipes, got a spray bottle in the shower and tried to tidy as I go more. The hardest part is we have a tiny kitchen which is the centre point of the house so it gets untidy sooo quickly!

    I am going to go against the baby wipe grain here.. I thought they were fantastic for a long time, but have recently noticed that when I've cleaned with them the areas attract dust more etc. A recent finding though, ive been using baby wipes for everything for 6yrs til now

    Mine is folding the laundry as you bring it in/take it out of the dryer, declutterinf and making sure everything has a place. When you have too much stuff and not enough storage is when you have issues I find.

    My top tip is washing baskets. I have 6 ikea ones, they stack together so take up no space - when empty! But they are never empty. They actually get used for laundry on washing day but the rest of the week i use them for tidying. It's amazing how tidy you can make a room look in 30 seconds with a wash basket under your arm. Now that my kids are a bit older, I fill them a basket each with their toys & bits, and one of their chores is to empty it and put everything away. It's rare they are out of use, Best $30 i ever spent!

    I've only just discovered this, so forgive me if everyone else already knows to do it... But now I keep a window squeegee in the shower & wipe down (almost) everytime I shower. It can be a pain to do sometimes but my god the window stays clean & sparkly for so long! No soap scum build up or frosty doors at all! 👍

    a broom kept in the room where toys are mostly. DS has a million hotwheels/matchbox cars, and loves duplo...and has so many smallish toys. Sweep them into a pile. They all get sorted into the material folding box things...bit if its swept into a pile i can sit with all the different containers and just throw them into whatever.

    Im slowly teaching him not to get everything out at once, and plan to (After xmas) to sew a huge playmat with drawstring around the edges so i can scoop up the toys and empty them into the container... shall be interesting to see if it works.

    My biggest problem is my DF! HE doesnt pick up after himself, nor help . I would have half as much to do if he wasnt so messy!

    Use a dishmatic dish brush and wash dishes as you use them. Have them air dry for a little bit too. Only use the dishwasher when you are far behind or have pots/pans. DS wants to get into the dishwasher when I have it open plus it can take forever to stack or dry all the dishes. Doing it as I go through the day has caused me so much less stress.
