Cleaning tips

I am just sharing with you some different cleaning tips that I have found.  I would love to "hear" your thoughts as well.  This post is very random, and not in any order-just as I have found things.

Personally for me, I rather clean one room a day (besides the regular dishes, laundry and wiping down of things).  That is what works for me & my household.  I go through one room ( or all 3 bedrooms) and pick up, wipe down and vacuum/sweep.   
However, there is of course another system.  (I checked it out & did it for a short time)  Its called the FlyLady way.  http://www.flylady.net/      She has a schedule all set up for you, one room or 2 rooms adjoined each week.   Its a great system, if it works for you.  She has tools and items for sale on her site.  She has lots of great tips, and a new habit of the month each month.  They also send out weekly/daily newsletters.  She evens has ways to get your kids to join in! 
Now here are Tips, Tricks & Hacks:

Clean your clean machine: the washer.

Pour a packet of lemonade Kool-Aid into the detergent cup of your dishwasher.
