The Lazy Girl's Guide to Effortless Spring Cleaning

Photographed by Ashley Batz.
While I’d love to live in a shiny, spotless, Pinterest-worthy apartment, I just don’t have the time (or willpower) to keep things Mr. Clean-level clean. The stack of coupons and bills teetering on the counter belongs in Pisa, the pile of dirty clothes never seems to shrink, and somehow, my cat has dragged litter across the entire place (seriously, how did she do that?). Still, I keep putting off those deep-cleaning tasks for another day because, well, I’d rather be brunching.

Luckily, it’s 2015, and we can all tidy up our places while barely lifting a finger. Click through for 10 apps and gadgets that will help you clean house with the least amount of actual work possible. You won't even need to put down your bottomless mimosa.
