Regardless of your lifestyle, it's not easy to keep the home neat and sparkling all the time. Even those who love to scrub every nook and cranny of a room know that real life can easily get in the way of chores.

According to a story from Apartment Therapy, homekeepers should "Stop trying to change your habit and just change your habitat" to achieve an impeccably clean space.
