It's quite simple to instil a sense of endeavour and cleanliness into young children. Simply attach dusters to their hands, elbows and kness and let them crawl around the floor for a few hours. Works best on polished wooden surfaces, but let's not quibble.

For the really adventurous, try attaching some sort of cleaning fluid dispenser to the child so that it can spray and wipe clean in a single pass. This can be particularly useful in a bath or shower cubicle.

Banish the drudge of housework!

       I wonder if pets could also be enlisted to the effort.

       why stick to your own home? send them out to clean other people's houses and earn some dosh.
