I use 1 part vinegar to 6 parts water to remove mineral buildup in my coffee maker.  Just pour in the water compartment and brew.  Rinse out the pot and fill with clean water and run through the coffee maker to rinse.

You should always vacuum before dusting in case the vacuum cleaner lets some dust fly.

Start at the top of the room dusting fans, modling and window treatments first so the dust will not fall onto the clean furniture.

I start in 1 corner of the room and work my way around dusting, then vacuum really good.

I try to spend 20 minutes everyday cleaning.  I designate one part of the house as the target for the day (i.e. kitchen, bathroom) or one task (vacuuming, dusting, etc.).

One habit we just started in the past weeks is not leaving dishes out.  Keeping the dishwasher empty of clean dishes is very important to keep this habit going since the other half will leave dishes in the sink if there is either no room or clean dishes in the dishwasher.  Same with clothes.

I try and clean every room for at least 10 minutes each day. I usually spend longer if my kids are napping.

1 parts water to 10 parts bleach. Keep things disinfected and I like the smell of bleach......clean smell.

To help me keep things together I made things a habit. My sons counselor says it takes 8 months to create a habit. Whether that is true or not I dont know but I am now called OCD or another word that isn't nice. I hate to have "things" setting out or laying around.

I quit smoking and couldn't handle not keeping my hands busy so cleaning and organizing started with me.
