No matter how hard you try, even with all the cleaning shortcuts and organizing hacks, keeping our homes in tip-top shape seems to be an impossible task. What we don't know is that the secret to accomplishing tedious chores is working on easy must-dos first. You're probably thinking: "More things to add to my lengthy to-do list?"—trust us, these little things can make a huge difference in your home in the long run: 

1. Kitchen floor

If you're only going to clean one part of your kitchen, make sure it's the floor. Since it catches food spills, stains from prepping meals, or even bits and pieces of leftovers, it's important to sweep and mop the floors spotless on a daily basis to keep your cooking corner free from pests. 

2. Bathroom sink 

The bathroom sink is where we brush our teeth and wash our face every morning, so it only makes sense that we keep the space where we get cleaned up just as tidy. Try this three-step quick cleaning routine—start by rinsing the sink with warm soapy water, then wipe off globs of toothpaste or soap, and throw away any stray hairs. 

3. Work desk 

Remember the old saying: out of sight, out of mind? Believe it or not, a neat desk might help you focus better. Keep your study from being cluttered by sorting out the mail daily, throwing out unimportant documents, and finishing simple tasks such as paying bills immediately.
