This article is dedicated to everyone who blushes at unexpected invasions of guests or convulsively denies if a friend asks to stop by to you to drink water. Because the reason for such reactions is not at all inhospitableness, but simply a mess. Yes, let's call a spade a spade!
Just imagine how wonderful it is to live in a cozy, light, uncluttered home. If your house is of such a category, then the maximum you will spend 15 minutes on a light “meeting” before the arrival of even not very invited guests. Remember the good Soviet proverb - "Clean is not where they clean, but where they maintain cleanliness!" 9 simple manipulations will not take long, but it will be much easier and more pleasant for you to hear the word “cleaning” if you start putting them into practice!
1. Make your bed
In the morning, the most important thing is to tuck into bed. Many psychologists seriously believe that it is a neat bed that sends a signal to the brain about the beginning of a working day. And at the same time organizes the entire bedroom / living room space. So do not be lazy and as soon as you get out of bed, fold all your underwear, carefully arrange the pillows and enjoy the effect!
2. Empty sink in the morning
This is painfully familiar to many. You get up in the morning, and there is a sink full of dirty dishes. And there is no joy in having breakfast. And cook something too. Make it a rule to wash all dishes in the evening, so that in the morning you will be greeted by a clean and dry sink. You will feel the difference very quickly.
3. Washing and ironing
Two whales of order in the house. There is no need to talk about any orderly scheme of life when there is a total overload in the laundry basket, as well as in a pile with dried up. Here's a little advice: if you don't like ironing, don't just sit down at it. Play your favorite movies and combine business with pleasure. And do the wash with a certain regularity - 2 times a week.
4. Every little thing has its place
In this regard, IKEA is a good example. They understand very clearly that the amount of storage space is closely related to order. And the more baskets, boxes and boxes of all kinds, the more order in the house.
5. Don't delay
Do you know such a scary word - procrastination? This is the tendency to constantly postpone even important and urgent matters, leading to life problems and painful psychological effects. Naturally, you are familiar with it, otherwise the problem of an uncleaned house would not have been so acute. Cut the Gordian knot without hesitation, and life will become easier.
6. Fold your clothes
Yes, after a hard day's work, the last thing you want to do is to pedantically hang dresses or trousers on a trempel. But this is vital, believe me. Then it is many times more difficult to collect the same things in the corners, iron them out and put them in their places.
7. Wash immediately
For many, it is a secret that if you wash the dishes and the stove in parallel with cooking, then you will not have to clean up the kitchen until midnight. Or wipe the mirror with a window after you look into it and see the stains. Do not make a ritual out of cleaning, this is superfluous.
8. Don't go to bed while the kitchen is dirty
Golden Rule. The kitchen is a place that is designed to warm and feed us. Here we are gaining strength more than anywhere else. And it is not surprising that when we come to the dirty kitchen in the morning, we feel overwhelmed. And odors, stains, and dirt are easier to remove not the next day. This is 100%!
And then the unknown will not scare you. You will see exactly what and when to do and what you have already done. And cleaning will no longer seem like an endless edge to you!
