Clean From the Top Down
When dusting, dust the top shelves and entertainment centers and bookcases, etc. first. Dust tends to fly all over when dusting, so it will flutter a bit and then go down. It will probably land on a table in the middle of the room, or on a coach, or anything at a lower level. So clean higher levels first, and then work down to the lower levels, and then vacuum.
When cleaning a refrigerator, start at the top level. Take everything off the shelf, then wash the shelf (either removing it and washing in the sink or wipe it out with at least warm water mixed with baking soda - not baking powder). Wipe the refrigerator walls, as well. Put the shelf back and the items back on it. Then go to the next lower shelf and do the same thing. By the time you get to the bottom of the refrigerator, there should be spills and stuff to work on.
When cleaning blinds or curtains, start vacuuming or dusting or cleansing from the top, letting the dust and bugs and cleanser fall down to the lower levels and you can catch those messes when you work your way down.
When vacuuming stairs, start at the higher step and work your way down - the vacuum will suck up most of the dirt and dust, but some will just fly away and end up on the lower steps. One area this doesn't apply to is unloading the dishwasher. Unload the bottom first, because the top level dishes might spill water onto the bottom dishes.
When you clean from the top down, you'll not have to repeat the cleaning process so much, going over your work again. It'll save time and aggravation. PR
