Frankly said, you want a clean house. Everybody wants a clean house, that’s for sure. But when it comes time for the real and actual work, you lose desire and simply want to spend the afternoon on the sofa, eating pizza and watching TV, drinking coffee and reading book. The cleaning is no one’s favourite activity. It is boring and exhausting and tiring. It leaves you unsatisfied and grumpy and you mourn over the time you could otherwise spend outside, but you spent on your knees in the bathroom scrubbing those hard water stains that left you out of breath. The reality is harsh and sometime the life of an adult sucks. Nothing is as careless as it was, when these duties were your parents’ ones. But instead of complaining some more time, you better try keeping your house clean all the time. And no, my dears, this is not the harder option, it is the easier one. Because if your house is in a pretty nice condition, you will need a minimum amount of effort to perfect it and make it shine. And because anything in life could be made easier and the simplicity is the answer of all questions, here are the one-minute rituals that could maintain your house.
Never leave that till tomorrow, which you can do today. Never leave the dirty dishes for tomorrow, never ever leave them for a little bit later, as well. You will need only a minute to put them in a dishwasher and your kitchen will be then in a wonderful condition, not covered with piles of glasses and plates.
Take a microfiber cloth and while you are making a coffee in the morning, remove the dust in the kitchen. Then while your kids are putting their shoes on, remove the dust in the hallway. The dusting is the perfect multitasking activity, because you simply need nothing more than just a microfiber cloth. You are watching your favourite series, why don’t you remove the dust, during the commercials time.
The bathroom sink
You are brushing your teeth and doing your makeup and I bet that those two together are taking you a lot more than just a minute. So you won’t lose anything if at the end you take a detergent and a rug and clean that sink in the bathroom, where in addition to the dirt and dust, tooth paste and makeup traces stains could be found.
Every time you are getting a reviving shower after a long and tiring day at work or at home or elsewhere, you can spend some a minute going through the entire bathroom and cleaning the shower itself. It’s an easy-peasy task, I promise.
You are coming back from work and you are leaving your clothes on the sofa, on a chair, on the bed or on the floor, anywhere, but not in the wardrobe. A how much easier would it be if you just put them where they belong.
