Tips to make your house work load lighter and boost your sense of calm – you know, if that weeklong cruise isn’t in the cards

De-stress your summer

Take a housework hiatus with these time-cutters

Scrub the bath less

Ventilate the room for 20 minutes after you shower – it cuts down on mold and mildew

Try new Mr. Clean Bath Cleaner with Febreze Freshness ($3) for the shower and bath, which claims to leave surfaces shiny for up to seven days.

Dust less

Consider buying an air cleaner such as the one by Holmes ($75, homesproducts.com). It works to remove household allergens (pollen dust) from a room’s air, meaning they settle less on furnishings.

If you have pets, brush them regularly – outside – particularly in the summer months, when they shed more.

Do less laundry

Get family members on board with the clothing-doesn’t-need-to-be-washed-after-a-brief-wearing plan (yes, we’re looking at you, teenagers). To quickly freshen lightweight jersey and other knits, tumble dry (sans heat or on low heat) for about 10 to 15 minutes along with a damp towel to help release odors and remove wrinkles. Also: See some of our favorite cleaning-shortcut products, right.

Freshen wrinkled clothes with a fabric touch-up spray like Dryel 3-in-1 or Niagara or Downy wrinkle releaser.

Vacuum less

Put sown a cushy doormat or a dark-colored (so it won’t show tracks) bath mat for people to wipe (bare or sandaled) tootsies on before crossing the threshold. When the mat gets dirty, just toss it in the wash.

Cut down on lawn care

How’s this for counterintuitive? If you keep grass blades longer in summer (read: mow the yard less often), it reduces the amount of watering you have to do – the shorter the grass, the more nourishment it needs. Also, leave trimmings on the lawn. While this temporarily looks a tad messy, it’s healthier for the yard in the long term, as nutrients break down and reenter the soil.

3 Fave lazy fixes

We heart these cleaning-easing all-stars

Febreze fabric refresher

A quick spray of it helps keep odors at bay (translation: less laundering).

Swiffer sweeper

It gets floors clean in minutes, no dustpan required. And Swiffer wet clothes are our mess-free go-to for mapping jobs.

Disinfectant wipes

Stash these canisters strategically around the house, and you’ll hauls around cleaners and cloths less often.
