Cleaning apps may not make your house look spotless, but they can help you clean faster, and more efficiently. Use these cleaning apps to tidy up your space, and even make cleaning fun.

Feeling overwhelmed with endless cleaning lists? The Spotless household app aims to help you keep your home clean and clutter-free. It enables users to set up multiple home areas (such as the kitchen, living, or bathroom, for example) and create task lists for each. You can then tick off each task as they go along and make deadlines for when tasks need to be completed.

The app developers summarise: ‘If you have trouble remembering the last time you cleaned the air conditioning vents, dusted the top of the bookshelf, or cleaned the door handles, Spotless has a perfect memory.’
