BrodH20: House-keeping for Slackers

But the very best thing about (Mary Ellen's Guide to Good Enough Housekeeping) is she has tips for slacker-ass housekeepers like me who are spent by the time they get home from work at night and have absolutely no energy or interest in cleaning anything at all. She has tips for cleaning up the entire house in minutes flat when company arrives unexpectedly. I was surprised, though, to discover that most of my "cleaning" secrets weren't in Mary Ellen's book. So I'm putting them down here. Maybe Mary Ellen will see this and put my tips in her next book and she'll give me a share of Mary Ellen stock and I'll get rich and retire young -- Mommy Dearest/BrodH20.

Question: Are you a decent house-keeper? Or do you have your own secrets for making things look cleaner than they are?
