How to keep a clean home?

The toughest thing when having a house is… SUPRISE, SURPRISE… the housework!

It doesn’t matter if you are working full-time, part-time or a stay-at-home mum. There is always something that needs cleaning and there is never enough time to clean them.
Of course, I LOVE a clean, spick and span house as much as the next person. But unfortunately, I am not a fan of housework. Call me lazy or disorganized, but after a hard day at work, I simply just want to relax and chill in front of the TV.

So here are 3 things you have and need to do to keep a clean home.

But one must realize communication is not about just telling who does what. But also to let out the expectations that each person has about the cleanliness of the house.
