Jeff Campbell to the rescue. Campbell is a professional cleaner and efficiency expert, the cleaning genius behind San Francisco's "Clean Team." I first discovered "Speed Cleaning" as a temporarily single mom while my husband was away doing fieldwork. I had to clean during baby naps--and fast. I picked it up again years later because we discontinued our cleaning service due to salary cuts at my workplace. We were also not especially happy with the cleaning service, including some breakage of our Mexican wood carving collection and ignoring places like under the bed and sofas.
The new edition of "Speed Cleaning" incorporates new products and introduces the products available through the Clean Team's online catalog. I haven't invested in any of the stuff yet, but might. Some readers object to this advertising aspect of the book, but it seems to me that the prices of the products are very competitive, plus the thoroughly vetted products allow you to skip a lot of random product shopping and trial and error. If you don't want to order The Clean Team's products, Campbell is very forthcoming with naming the best commercial equivalents. I know for sure that I will be purchasing one or more of their ostrich feather dusters to deal with our Mexican wood carvings. The apron that enables the cleaners to tote products with him or her rather than leaving them misplaced all over the house and then having to track them down also seems ingenious. The Sh-mop with washable covers for hardwood floors and professional dustpans also look like excellent tools.
I especially like the cleaning approach that specifies making one's way around a room clockwise and top to bottom rather than taking haphazard stabs at things. The method for cleaning toilets is worth the price of the book. It is brilliant and makes it almost fun. Really. The advice never to let the powdered cleanser (e.g. Comet) get on the sink above the bowl is also priceless. And the crappy pans under your stove's burners? Don't knock yourself out cleaning them--you can buy new ones at the hardware store,
I would have given the book 5 stars except that about half of it is inexplicably devoted to choosing and supervising a cleaning service. I'm not sure why a book about how to clean includes this. Would have given 4 1/2 if possible.
The book really needs to be updated though - the vacuums used are very outdated, microfiber clothes and mops are great to use with his system, and some of the cleansers recommended don't even exist anymore. I also disagree with using ostrich feather dusters - why purposesly make dust fall all over the floor to (hopefully) catch later with the vacuum when you can use a lambswool duster or microfiber cloth and keep the dust on the duster. I also use my own cleansers - Mrs. Meyers all purpose cleanser instead of the red juice and the floor cleaners works great.
I know he says his way or the highway, but his system can obviously be adapted to fit your own needs. Because the jobs are broken up into categories - kitchen, bathrooms, dusting and vacuuming - it actually lends itself well to splitting up cleaning over several days if you work and don't like one long cleaning session to take up your whole Saturday morning. I do all the dusting on one weeknight, then all the vacuuming the next day (both "dry" jobs that don't get you too dirty), and then do the heavy duty "wet" jobs (kitchen and bathrooms) on Friday or Saturday.
