Use Hardworking Cleaning Chemicals for your Floor

Identify Items You Regularly Use
If you want to easily clean your house, it is the best time that you practice minimalism. Try to identify which things you REALLY need and use regularly. Those that are not included in your list can be kept in your storage and can be donated. The more things you have, the longer you need to clean up. Bottom line is, trim down the items that you own.
Choose Low Maintenance Fabrics
You can also consider fabrics that are easy to clean and that do no easily stain. Use these for your couch or curtain and you don’t have to worry about replacing it every now and then. Leather is a nice pick for your couch because you can easily wipe it. Suede is a good fabric choice too. But if you want to use other kinds, just apply stain-resistant treatment.
To easily move your big furniture, you can also make use of casters. Casters, if you must know, are a set of small wheels that can be attached to big furniture for mobility. Remember to get the ones with lock or your kids can easily push it.
Choose Multi-Purpose Furniture

Or maybe you can buy beds that have additional storage underneath. Store all your board games, photo albums, and even toys in these storage, and have a cleaner home from now on.
