In order to clean your house fast and efficiently, we should always start from high to low, and from back to front. For example, always cleaning your house from upstairs and work your way down so that dirt and dust from higher surfaces falls on lower surfaces. Starting from the farthest corner of a room and work your way out so that the leading edge moves forward and you will be able to collect everything.
Room 1: Bedroom (10minutes)
(1) Clean sweep
Get few boxes and put all the unnecessary items that are scattered around your dresser or nightstand in there and stash them in closets. Clean out the clutter and empty the wastebasket.
(2) Make the bed
Remove the dirty linens and put clean ones on the bed. Lift up the corners of the mattress with one hand and tuck the bed sheets under the mattress with the other hand.
(3) Remove dust
Use a dry microfiber cloth or duster to dust the surface of your furniture, and clean them from top to bottom and dump the dust right onto the floor. Starting from the farthest corner of the room and work your way out.
Start from a back corner and vacuum your way out the door. Save time by only running the vacuum over each strip of carpet once.
Room 2: Bathroom (10 minutes)
(1) Prep work
Spray the sink, vanity, shower, and tub with all-purpose spray and let it sit.
(2) Clean toilet
Add two spoon full of baking soda into the toilet bowl, and use a toilet brush to scrub the inside of the toilet thoroughly. Then flush the toilet a few times. After that, spray a microfiber cloth with all-purpose spray and wipe the outside of the toilet and tank from top to bottom.
(3) Clean the mirror
Spray on glass cleaner or all-purpose spray, and wipe the mirror with a microfiber cloth from top to bottom in a circular motion.

(5) Shower and tub
Remove hairs and dirt from the shower strainer. In order to save time, use a dampened microfiber cloth to quickly wipe down the shower and tub instead of a full scrub. Then shut the curtain.

Quickly mop the floor with a dampened mop, beginning in a farthest corner and working your way out of the bathroom.
