That’s a good deal of time when you have so many important things in life. I’m sure cleaning is not one of them.
You can learn better techniques and cut your cleaning time in half.
All you have to do is implement smart techniques.
(So, taking into consideration, the significance of keeping the most important areas in your home clean, and reducing the time and energy required to get your home clean – I’ve created a series of MINIMUM MAINTENANCE systems that you can implement in your home. These systems will help you keep your home clean and tidy at all times with minimal time and energy.)
The kitchen is the area that you should really spend time cleaning.
This is a place you cook your food, it should be clean and germ-free.
Each day after dinner or before going to bed, make sure to spend as less as 10 minutes tidying up this important area of your home — to prevent it from getting out of control, avoid frequent deep cleaning, and ensure it’s serviceable and welcoming. That also means you can wake up in the morning and get on with your other important work.
You can follow this routine at any time of the day (as per your needs) if you’re not able to do it at night.
Let’s just set the timer for 10 minutes and get started. The timer technique really helps me. I do this every time for all tasks. Knowing you’re under time pressure motivates you to move much faster.

See to it that the leftovers — soup, salad, and rice make their way into the refrigerator.
Restore spice and condiment jars back in their place.
Have a basket to collect the items that don’t belong in the kitchen. You can go back to putting it in their designated place later.

Load dirty dishes. Run the dishwasher if the load is full.
