Does it get to be too much of a burden to do the seemingly endless task of cleaning, washing dishes, doing the laundry, and all the rest of these chores that you just can’t neglect? Ever notice how when you try to get an area clean, the mess just seems to keep on get bigger? Nowadays, it’s possible to make chores a lot easier and faster with all the new appliances and cleaning aids. Still, you may have a lot of these things but it’s such a hassle to do chores.
Here’s a few tips on how to do chores in record time – and even to get the tasks done with more efficiency:
Use the correct equipment. There is a kind of rag sops up everything and holds it weight in water but may be what you need to use for chore is a sponge. A broom will sweep the floor and instead of pushing all the dirt around, sweep the dirt into the dustpan immediately. You can open a can with a knife but it would be much easier if you had a can opener. Get the picture? With the right equipment, doing chores is a lot easier.
Use the best products. If the product is expensive, it doesn’t mean it’s the best. Read reviews to learn more about new products like all-purpose stain removers and concentrated cleaning aids. You get better results from using a great laundry detergent than a cheap one that needs more spins and even bleach to make the clothes clean. It might appear that you save some money buying inexpensive products but those might not tackle the task that well, so you would have to use more or settle for adequate results.
Organize your work load. Scheduling the chores can bring you relief because if you try to do all in a day or two, you might get exhausted. Estimate when things should be done so you can save time and effort. For example, instead of laundering two small batches twice a week, do one full washing machine load once a week.
Create storage space. If things are stored properly, these will be easier to find when you need them and the area will be neater. To add storage space doesn’t necessarily mean you have to expand your house. You can compact clothes and pillows in Space Bags. There are space-saving organizers that enable you to use the walls as storage space. There are so many new kinds of storage product that you will like such as the Over the Door Wonder Hanger that can turn any door into a closet. Get organized, create more space, and get rid of the clutter.
Break the task down into manageable parts. Faced with a closet full of stuff, do a section at a time. Nearly all tasks can be broken done and this allows you to focus instead of trying to do everything in one go. Pace yourself and plan what to do based on priority and you will see that chores will become easier.
Assign duties to each member of the household. Place up reminders. Give incentives and rewards. If you live alone, then you can always job out certain tasks by hiring a gardener or having the clothes done at a laundry instead of doing it yourself. It might cost a little extra but if you are too tired or no longer want to do it, then pay someone else to do the chore.
Order in tonight and relax. Plan the chores for the week.
Make a shopping list of the things that you need to set up your home to make chores easier like buying a new vacuum cleaner, a dishwasher, cleaning supplies, and storage products.
You can have a home that is as neat as a pin and even automate most of the chores that you are doing.
