Cleaning can be a pain, and very time consuming.  Here are some tips to make cleaning more effective and time efficient. 

Rub the rust off of your cookware with a half a lemon dipped in salt. 

Scrub your kitchen sink: Squeeze the juice out of three lemons and mix with salt until you get a paste. Drop some of the paste into the sink and gently scrub the sink with it. Rinse after scrubbing. 
Clean your microwave: Squeeze enough lemons to yield 4 tablespoons of juice. Fill a 4 cup capacity bowl with 1 cup of water and the lemon juice. Place the bowl in a microwave and turn it to a high setting. Let the mixture steam up inside of the microwave. Wipe down the microwave.
Get stains off of countertops: Pour some lemon juice on top of the stain. Wait a few minutes while the lemon juice's acid works to break down the stain. Sprinkle a bit of baking soda on top of the stain and scrub the stain away. 

Use baking soda as an effective degreaser: Sprinkle it on the grease and rub with a dry cloth. The baking soda will absorb the grease and you can now simply rinse it away. 
Keep drains flowing: Mix equal amounts baking soda and vinegar, at least a 1/2 cup of each. Pour it down your drain, let sit for a few minutes and rinse it down with a kettle of boiling water. You will prevent many common drain problems if you make this a regular part of drain maintenance. 
Loosen mineral deposits on sink faucets: Soak a paper towel in undiluted vinegar and place it on sink faucets. 
Make an all-purpose cleaner: Mix 1 cup of vinegar with 5 cups of water to make a window, eyeglass lens or surface cleaner. It won't kill bacteria though, so be sure to use a disinfectant on contaminated surfaces. 
Treat carpet spills, such as coffee or soda: Dampen a clean cloth with vinegar and dab the spot to remove excess liquid. Dampen another clean cloth with vinegar. Using cold water (never hot) and the vinegar, gently rub the spot until the stain is gone. 
Remove stains from porcelain: Rub a porcelain surface (sink, tub, commode) with cream of tartar and watch the stains disappear.
