The app cannot do the work for You, but a good one can motivate or guide you, so the one that best suits your needs will depend on how you prefer to approach awkward or tedious tasks.

Spotless helps you break down cleaning tasks by room. You can create a separate to-do list for each room in your home, and then set reminders for how often you want to complete the tasks in each room.

Clean My House should remind you of this daily about what the cleaning schedule for the day should look like – “No more worrying about what to do every morning.” You have control over how often each notification appears and when you’re done, just tap the reminder to open the app and star it.
