Scrub the Toilet
Scrubbing the toilet might well be the most-avoided household chore, but it's really one of the quickest and easiest tasks. Even the foulest-looking toilet can be rendered spic-and-span in less than a minute. When the first commercial break hits, run through all of your bathrooms and squeeze or spray some toilet-bowl cleaner. When the next break starts, give all of the bowls a good scrub and a flush. Done.
