While some people actually enjoy cleaning, for the rest of us, it’s just a necessary evil of being an adult and owning a home. Keeping up with daily chores can be overwhelming, and who likes to spend their entire Saturday cooped up inside when you could be outside enjoying the fresh air and sunshine? Besides hiring a cleaning service, there are other ways to make cleaning your house less dreadful. The cleaning experts at Layla’s Maid Service have come up with a list of ways to make house cleaning fun. Don’t believe us? Read on!
Turn House Cleaning Into a Game
What better way to make house cleaning fun than to turn it into a game. There are so many ways you can do it: score points for each task you check off your list, compete against your partner or child to see who can finish cleaning a particular room first, or set a timer and see how much you can get done in a period of time. The possibilities are endless and you might have so much fun that you actually forget you’re cleaning.
Invest In Fun Gear
Throw out that old, stained dish rag and get rid of that sorry-looking mop. Purchasing new cleaning tools that are fun and brightly colored can really make a difference in how you feel when you clean. Why not buy some new towels with funny sayings on them, or get a sponge in a bright color or different shape. They even make slippers with fuzzy, dust-capturing bottoms on them that you can use to wear around the house and dust the floor at the same time. Take some time to really look at all of the cleaning supplies that are now available and you’ll be sure to find something that makes you look forward to cleaning!
While the act of cleaning may not be that fun, knowing that you’ll be rewarded for your efforts will make it worthwhile. You could set aside a piece of chocolate to enjoy after each room is completed. This might sound like an unhealthy way of rewarding yourself (especially it you have a lot of rooms to clean), but just remember that house cleaning burns calories and you need that chocolate to keep up your energy.
Turn Up the Music
Music makes everything more fun so why not take this opportunity to really crank up the tunes. Before you know it you’ll be dancing as you clean, and you’ll be getting things done in half the time. If anyone in your household doesn’t appreciate your style of music, feel free to let them know that they can play their music of choice, all they have to do is start cleaning.
