Old socks or cotton garden gloves are perfect for dusting. They fit your hands and go everywhere even work well on things like blinds and small knickknacks! Spray on Polish and off you go! Wash the socks or gloves with your other old cleaning rags, and you're ready to go again.

Create A lost and found Report Abuse
Whether its a basket, a plastic tub or a drawer, when a family member finds something stray on a countertop he or she can toss it in the "lost and found." It's a great way to clean up, and it's the first place you'll look for a missing item, instead of searching for it. Set a time when everyone takes their things from the container and puts them away.
