While some people might really enjoy cleaning, others might find it tiresome as it takes up precious moments you could be spent doing something more fun.
So if there's a way we can avoid doing some housework and make our lives a little easier, we're going to jump at it.
Now one woman has claimed there's a very simple way to keep your kitchen drawers looking "spotless" for a long time.
Writing for apartmenttherapy.com, Shifrah Combiths shared a kitchen rule that her family she claims her family have been following for more than 75 years.
And the 'secret' couldn't be easier to put into place in your own home - just keep all drawers closed when cooking, eating or cleaning up.

Shifrah explained how when cooking if you leave the drawer open, you risk getting crumbs and splashes of oil and other ingredients inside, as well as all over cutlery and other utensils.
She said: "Drawer interiors, in general, are not easy to clean. You need to empty out all kinds of utensils or tools to get to the mess and drawers are awkward spaces to wipe or vacuum.
"If you do vacuum the interior, you definitely need to wipe it out because you don’t want the tools you use to clean your floors to indirectly come into contact with items used to cook or eat."
The answer then is "rigorous prevention".
Ensuring that drawers are always closed will help minimise the risk of getting anything unwanted in there and keep them cleaner for longer.
This comes after a Nan went viral on TikTok for sharing a cheese life hack.
Bev Stewart, 61, is well known as @nannabea online and shared a trick for how to keep your cheese fresh for longer, without using any cling film or tin foil.
The Yorkshire-based carer says she simply slices a block of cheese while it's still in the packet, removing a section from the end.
She then uses the removed piece of wrapper from the end to put back over the rest of the block, covering up the cheese.
People loved the video and took to the comments to thank her for sharing.
"I can't believe I've never seen that. Nanna, you're a legend," one user wrote.
"Lifehack I didn’t realise I needed, thanks Nanna," another user commented.
