Does cleaning stress you out? Perhaps your home is always so cluttered that you feel guilty for relaxing. Well, don’t feel bad! Just follow these tips for cleaning and you’ll feel all that stress just float away.
One Thing at a Time
One of the most important tips we can give you is to tackle things one at a time. It’s a huge temptation to multitask, but this will actually make you less efficient. Attempting to make your to-do list longer than you can handle will only result in anxiety over how overwhelmed you are. Instead, here’s a different strategy: focus on something different every day, until you have a routine down. Do laundry on a Friday evening. Use Saturdays to vacuum and clean the floors, especially in the bathrooms. Collect and dispose of the trash on Wednesdays, something like that.
Get Some Help
You may have heard the saying that many hands may work light. This is true, especially when it comes to cleaning around the house. Ask friends, relatives, family members, and coworkers to help out. This is even more important when you’re settling into a new home or preparing to move out of your current home before you move someplace else. The right help can make all the difference.
Make Supplies at Home
There are some supplies that you have no choice but to get from the store. Try using some items you already have at home, like baking soda, vinegar, and aluminum foil from your kitchen. You can also use toothpaste and mouthwash to lift stains, and even use essential oils in place of standard air fresheners!
Finally, take some time to congratulate yourself on a job well done. This means slow down and rest. You can’t push yourself past your limits all the time, even though you feel like the cleanliness of your home is your responsibility alone. It’s a team effort. Calling for help from cleaning professionals is nothing to be afraid of – let us help you!
