If there are dirty dishes in your kitchen, first of all, collect them all and put them into the sink or dishwasher.

Vacuum the room if it’s carpeted otherwise use surface cleaners and sweep the floor appropriately. Also, don’t just pick up stuff from one place and throw it at another place, put everything to the place where they actually belong so that your room gets clutter-free and everything gets back to their respective places. Spend only 10-15 minutes in every bedroom.

For the proper hygienic environment, it is important to pay close attention to small things such as doorknobs and clean them on a regular basis. This would hardly take 30 -40 seconds to clean the doorknobs of a single door.
