Cleaned up and after a day or two everything looks like a battlefield again?

Cleaning guru Marie Kondo knows how to get everything sparkling clean again in no time.

Tidying up the apartment is certainly not one of the favorite weekend activities for many.

But if the dirty laundry is already piling up, layers of dust are accumulating on the dresser or you trip over the children's toys everywhere, it's time to put things back in order.

But where do I start and how can I save a lot of time?

Marie Kondo, the "plaster guru" from Japan, knows this.

A tidy apartment in five minutes – with the Komono trick

The mother of three has become famous worldwide in a very short time thanks to her cleaning tricks.

She is a bestselling author and consultant and gives tips on how to put your household and thus your life in order.

But what if there is acute chaos in your own four walls?

Then, according to Marie Kondo's komono trick, which should take just five minutes, will help.

In concrete terms, this means that you should clear out for a few minutes several times a week so that the clutter does not quickly get the upper hand again.

It starts with odds and ends such as notes, photos or advertising flyers and the like on chests of drawers or tables, which quickly make our rooms look untidy again.

Instead of piling these all over the home, it's best to throw them away immediately.

So set aside just a few minutes a day and as you tidy up, always ask yourself if you really need what you're holding.

If not, then things should end up in the bin right away.

Create order in the home with a system

On the other hand, if you have to keep fuel bills and other notes, but don't want to leave them lying around loosely, you can also get a nice box with a lid in which you can put them sorted, advises the tidying expert.

This ultimate trick also avoids throwing in the towel too soon or not even starting.

You forget these spots all the time when cleaning

So if you take on too much at once, you usually have no desire to start at all.

But if you take small things step by step, you are more motivated and stay on the ball. Don't just run around aimlessly, set yourself a goal when cleaning up.

For example, take a room and put it in order, but don't jump across the apartment.

In the end, this only creates more chaos and eats up an unnecessarily large amount of time.
