5 or 10 minute Speedy Clean Up

Choose a housework task to do. Set a timer for 5 or 10 minutes (which ever works best for you) and when the timer stops - stop!

If you can do this everyday when you first come back to your flat then you will keep on top of the cleaning and tidying. It's even better if you can do this together with your flatmates. It becomes a regular habit and makes life easier.
