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

Dishes

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.

Curtains

A wash once a year will suffice for curtains.

Slipcovers for furniture

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

Pillows

Twice a year is sufficient for these objects.

Pantry

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

Clothes

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.

Carpets

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

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

Oven

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