Who wants to spend their whole weekend cleaning the house? Now that your little one is home, you probably want to spend even less time washing and scrubbing so you can get back to the fun. Check out these expert tips to get your place shining.

“Rather than perpetually marching toward perfection, we need real-world approaches to cleaning,” said Jeff Bredenberg, author and legendary cleaning guru. "Corner-cutting, time-saving and minimal-effort techniques are great ways to 'cheat' at cleaning."

Clean Top to Bottom
Start cleaning items above your head and work your way down to the floor. This prevents having to re-clean items, saves time and gives you a method for dealing with the madness.

Give Plants and Blinds a Shower
“Place your blinds or plants, two or three at a time, in the bottom of your bathtub with the drain open, turn on the cold water shower and let the water stream do the work. No scrubbing or detergent is necessary," Bredenberg suggested. Then, let them air-dry.
