Why you hate cleaning.

Time

It's no secret that cleaning consumes a significant amount of time in our daily lives.


Worse, we have other responsibilities such as work, cooking (let's not even get started on cleaning dishes afterwards), social life, or you just want to relax for a minute, turn on the TV, maybe watch Netflix, read a book... the possibilities are endless.


You may be wondering, "What is the solution to all of this?" We may not have the perfect solution for you, but we do have a few options.


Start small

No one expects you to clean the entire house in a single day; in most cases, this is impossible unless you live in a very small house or flat. Take it easy and don't worry if you don't complete everything you had planned for the day. Still, try to do as much as you can during your designated cleaning time because it will make it easier later.


Don't wait

Waiting is your worst enemy when it comes to cleaning. The longer you wait, the worse it will become and the more time you will have to devote to it. Push yourself; don't tell yourself that you can do it later or that it's still early and you have plenty of time. This is what causes you so much stress when you think about cleaning. Thinking of cleaning is worse than actually doing it, and putting it off will only make you think about it more and more.


NOT KNOWING HOW TO TACKLE It

To be blunt, not everyone understands how to clean properly, which is why we are here to help. You'll find the vast majority, if not all, of the cleaning advice and products you'll ever require right here. If you are unfamiliar with the cleaning process, you may believe that you will never succeed; however, this is not the case. With a gentle push in the right direction, keeping your home clean will quickly become second nature to you.


After all it's not rocket science.


Please make use of our articles and materials, which will assist you in becoming more familiar with the cleaning world. It won't take long before you are no longer embarrassed by a disorganized home or room when visitors arrive.


Not having the correct tools

You wouldn't attempt to write a novel with crayons, would you? Of course, that is an option, but it is not the most efficient method of finishing the job. In the case of cleaning, the same holds true.


Even if you understand what you're doing and how to do it, it's possible that you don't have the most appropriate tools at your disposal. That is also covered on our site. Simply search for the item you need or want to clean, and within the article you will find a complete list of all the tools required to complete the job to your satisfaction.


Too many things

Be honest with yourself: Is that old item you're thinking about right now truly that important to you that you can't bear to throw it away?


Having an excessive amount of items may demotivate even the world's best cleaner. This is why you could perhaps try to keep track of the majority of the items you own. You no longer require something? Donate it to someone who may require it more than you, sell it, or simply toss it away if you no longer need it. That is entirely up to you, but avoid keeping it solely for the sake of keeping it.


Bear in mind that cleaning ten small pieces takes longer than cleaning two large pieces.


Consistency

If you have a sudden burst of energy and manage to deep-clean the entire house in a week, that is admirable. However, do you know what isn't so great? You will have to wait a month or longer to repeat this process, at which point all of your hard work will be invisible.


You will then have to muster up all of your energy to attempt to clean everything as thoroughly as possible again.


What if, instead of that, you simply maintained a cleaning schedule and committed to it? Take a look at our other article, which discusses the importance of maintaining a cleaning schedule.
