Things To Think About

How often are you cleaning in your home?
Is your time slipping away as you clean your home?
Why have you been falling behind in cleaning your home?
What are you going to do to get ahead of dirt?

Think about your approach to cleaning in your home. Do you clean a little each day, you do look at it and walk over the dirt or away from the mess or is cleaning something that you leave to others?

Setting aside just an hour, a day to clean something in your home daily is going to help you get ahead of the major dirt. Cleaning a little, every day is going to make all the cleaning chores seem smaller and easier to handle.

Think about how often you run the sweeper in your house. I only swept when the house really needed it.  Maybe you don’t even know where the sweeper is now because it has been so long since you ran the sweeper. On the other hand, are you the type of person who only runs the sweeper when you are expecting your mother over?

Running the sweeper, as you need it, at least four times a week is going to keep your home spotless. Vacuuming the carpets daily if you have the time is top of the line best, but most of us don’t have that much time or energy. Every other day will keep your house in tiptop shape no matter what day of the week it is and visitors will be impressed with your clean home!

Think about the dishes in the sink after meals. How often do you do the dishes? I usually put them in the dishwasher after each meal, but I run it only when it is full.  I wash up the pots and pans as I use them if they are too big for the dishwasher and leave them to dry on the sink.  Doing your dishes as you finish up a meal is going to help your home stay in tiptop gleaming clean all the time. 

If you leave your dishes sit from one day to the next, and then loading them in the dishwasher or washing them in the sink, you have a mess almost all the time. While this is a very common practice in most homes, it leaves you feeling as if you have ‘something’ to do, and your home is a little dirtier than it has to be.

Washing the dishes takes five to ten minutes, and you are back to being royalty in the house again! Your company never has to ‘see’ what you had for supper if you put the dishes in the dishwasher for later.

Think about some of these questions as you as read:

  • Do you remember the last time you cleaned your toilet?
  • When was the last time the floor was mopped in your bathroom?
  • Can you write your name in the dust on the television?
  • Does the cat hair under the stove start cooking when you do?
  • When you grab something out of the freezer is it frozen to the frost in there?
  • Are you sleeping with bed bugs or are your sheets crispy clean?
  • Can you see where your coffee mug sits on the counter every morning?

No matter what stage of life your home is in, your cleaning habits and those of your family can be changed by adding just a few of the tips out of each chapter in this book.
