Squeegees are your friend

Toothbrushes and paint brushers are handy tools
If you are as organised about cleaning as you should be, you must have a cleaning tool kit at your home which contains cleaning chemicals and tools of your choice. Toothbrush and paintbrush can be an awesome addition to your tool kit as they can help you in reaching difficult spots and keeping the damage of spot treatment to the minimum.
Declutter and organise
The more organised your space is, the easier it is to clean. When you know exactly where you can find each thing you spend less time cleaning stuff around. The more cluttered any space has, the more difficult it is to clean as clutter seems to catch the most dust and its time consuming to go through the clutter to sort it all out. It is best that you have serious decluttering sessions twice a month. Adopt a minimalistic lifestyle, fewer things you have less you will need to clean.
Let the path lead you
Following a cleaning path is very important as it minimizes the effort to keep the things clean. The cleaning path goes from top to bottom, from inside outside. Start with the room that is furthest from the outside and move your way to the outside, Start with the taking off the spider webs and dust from the ceiling, dusting the tallest furniture in the room, move to the lower shelves, tables and other furniture before finally cleaning the floor.
Skip the bucket, grab the bottle
