My utensil holder is sectioned out so I do each section for only one type and based on the order I'd put them away. One is for cooking things that all goes in the drawer or the holder on the counter, one for knives, one for forks, one for spoons. Then I don't have to sort.. it actually DOES go faster especially on really full loads.
I also keep a spray bottle of vinegar in the bathroom. After a shower I spray the shower area down. the water that drips and dries gets the vinegar everywhere and it combats mold and mildew.
a battery powered stick vaccuum helps keep my house SO much cleaner. Granted, I do have mostly hard floors and only area rugs but even just a swipe to get the bigger stuff between a deep vaccuuming is really helpful. I do it once or twice a day whenever I can just to keep all the dirt and crumbs at bay with my toddler running in and out.
using a smaller garbage can helps me keep from letting it overflow to the point of stinking up the house. It is too small to get TOO gross. I have to take it out more often, but it keeps things cleaner and fresh.
My house is a lot cleaner now that I have a lot less things. I actually have space to add more things but cleaning up and putting away dishes and laundry and toys goes so fast that I'm not interested in more again
Only one or two hampers helps me do laundry before there are mountains, which in turn makes putting them away faster. My hamper full but not squished full is the perfect size for a load. When it is full, I just toss it in the machine. when we had hampers in each room, it was too easy to ignore laundry til they were ALL full and some overflowing... and then laundry takes forever.
