That’s how much time you spend cleaning in your life:
Did you know that you spend about three and a half years of your life doing household chores? For a few people cleaning up is fun, for the majority, it’s an unavoidable reality of adult life.
8 tips to motivate you – make cleaning up fun again:
- Cleaning schedule: Schedule fixed days each week for cleaning. For example Monday: Vacuuming and cleaning up. Friday: Bathroom. Sunday: Cleaning windows.
- Clean up the kitchen right after dinner. Wash dishes right away, this keeps dirty dishes manageable.
- Think about the smell of freshly washed clothes.
- Clean 15 minutes every day.
- Invite guests as often as possible. Nobody wants to be ashamed in front of strangers if the apartment is not tidy.
- Use commercial breaks on TV to take out the trash or put laundry in the washing machine.
- Declutter regularly. Remove dust catchers! Do you really need the decoration or the small piece of furniture in the hallway?
- Most important tip: Make your work as pleasant as possible: Best with music!
