12 things that could use less cleaning

Barring houses with pets or children, these objects do not need to be cleaned as much as you think.


These offending objects do not need to be pre-rinsed before they are loaded into the dishwasher.

Winter warmers

These include coats, gloves, coats, and the like and only need to be washed once or twice a season.


A wash once a year will suffice for curtains.

Slipcovers for furniture

Slipcovers can be washed once a season to keep them clean.


Twice a year is sufficient for these objects.



Perishables do not live here and therefore regular cleaning is unnecessary. Twice a year will do.



Unless they are actually dirty, they do not need to be washed after every use. Underwear is an exception.

Fans and lights

A monthly clean of these objects is perfectly sufficient.

Vacuum these on a weekly basis and send out for a professional clean once a year.

Bath toys

Rinse and dry after each use and then wash once a month.


Provided food particles are cleaned timelessly, a couple of cleans a year will be enough.
