Most important general tip

The most important tip for any cleaning and maintenance is to do it regularly. If you wipe off the frequently used handles in the kitchen every day, bacteria have less chance of developing. If you descale your bathroom once a week, it is much quicker than when you leave it until you have a stubborn layer. What about your jewellery? The more frequently you polish, the more beautiful it looks.
