Regardless of global disasters, though, I am regularly interested in people’s best tips and tricks for keeping a place clean, and cleaning it most effectively. Do you use some magical something-or-other on your kitchen sink? Is there a trick for keeping my sliding glass doors from getting smudged to all hell? Do I need a steam cleaner?!?!?!!!!  Let us discuss our housekeeping secrets.
