Managing a household is probably the most tiring job in the world. I really have no idea how my grandmother had the strength to do it all by herself. I can only envy the women who manage to do it, go to work, take care of the children, cook, sleep and still manage to look splendidly.
This is just inhumane and they manage to do it in twenty four hours. There is a secret to this and I would be glad if someone shares it with me because sometimes all I want to do is go to bed and sleep for at least five days in order to recover.
After the another terrible week, I decided to do a research and find a way to ease the cleaning process. Here’s what I found: five house cleaning tips you wish you knew earlier.
Every article I have read says it is important to distribute your time. I really don’t understand how a schedule can help me prolong the day so that I have enough time for everything. Nevertheless, I have to admit it helps a little especially if you have someone to help you with the cleaning chores. But, it takes time to get used to it. To be honest, I really don’t like to get the mop and wipe the floor right after I’ve come home.
It takes ten minutes, but I prefer to rest a little before that. You have to be determined, organized and I’m just not such a person. I really hope that in time it will become more easy, but all of my friends are trying to convince me that either it is in you or not, it can’t be learned. If you are more organized tan me, try making a cleaning schedule. For, example, on Mondays you vacuum clean, on Tuesdays you do the laundry, etc.
The cleaning products
It is not easy to choose the right cleaning products because there are too many on the market and you can easily get confused. Seek green detergents and read the label carefully because some may contain chemicals which can be harmful to your health. It is a good idea to make your own solutions if you have the time. I have tried and I can assure you they work just as good as the commercial ones.
Less is more
I assume you’re confused, but keep reading. We’re still talking about the cleaning solutions and how to properly use them. The next time you clean your house, try use lees than the instructions say. You’ll see that it is easier to rinse the area that way you’ll save time and money. This is the principle of less is more. You can try it and see the results. Of course, this applies for minor stains and daily house maintenance.
This is the lat tip I will give you, it is probably the most important of all. Clean as often as you can. That way nothing can build up and you’ll see how in time cleaning will consume less of your time. I’ll give you an example, if you remove the residue from the oven right after the cooking, it will take you a few minutes. However, if you wait for the end of the week, you will need at least half an hour to properly clean the residue.
The final solution
Of course, there is another way to keep your home clean, which involves just a phone call to the right cleaning company. There are many which offer different kinds of services, but before you choose one you have to learn if they use green cleaning solutions. The one I use does not only that, but also has the most advanced equipment. They offer great deals which save me a lot of money not to mention time and efforts.
