What do you do to make cleaning go faster?

I play music and (I'm such a dork, LOL) dance through the house while cleaning. It's definitely entertainment for the kids. It makes the time go faster because we spend the time cleaning and laughing!

  • I turn the music up a little loud and we both (Ki and I) dance to it while cleaning. We have fun with it, splashing each other while we do dishes. Yesterday, she was rinsing and poured a cup of cold water over my head, but hey, we needed to mom afterwards so it was alright.
    I set timers and we get a treat if we get a certain thing done before the timer goes off. The treat us usually a walk to get icecream or something.
    We just make it fun.

  • I try to clean everything in the area rather than clean something and come back to clean something in the same area again. For example, when I clean the toilet, I also clean the floor around the toiled and the wall and the tank.

  • That should be "needed to mop" instead of "needed to mom"
    oops!

  • Listen to music - I also only do one room at a time - that way I can see the finished result
