To keep the house clean without a lot of effort, make use of "wait time" in your day.
Wipe down the refrigerator doors as you wait for water to boil. Sort the magazine stack during television commercials, or straighten the coat closet when waiting for a family member.
Micro-cleaning makes good use of spare minutes, and goes a long way to keeping things organized on the fly.

Dusting only a room's accessible surfaces is an exercise in frustration; remaining dust will colonize clean spaces quickly. When you do dust, be thorough. Move furniture toward the center of the room to reach all walls, windows and baseboards. Vacuum behind the furniture before you replace it, then remove remaining dust in the room's center. Keep the clean!
If car battery terminals are heavily corroded, the quickest and easiest way to clean them is to pour carbonated soft drink over them. It will eat the corrosion away. Baking soda mixed with water will also do the trick.
