savvy circler Shabooboo has the trick to getting even the littlest kiddies involved in cleaning:
“I am a mum of four, aged 11, 6, 2 and 16 months. I've found enlisting them to 'help' with the housework allows me to get more done. I give the youngest two a baby wipe each and they happily trot around wiping off walls and skirting boards etc. […]”
Cleaning still not floating your boat? In that case you need to find a way to stay distracted, like savvy circler angelica06 does:
“I find it definitely helps listening to podcasts, it adds a bit of fun while I’m cleaning. Save your favourite podcasts for cleaning time so you’re looking forward to listening to the latest episode. It’s a great way to have more fun cleaning and gives me the added motivation I certainly need.”
Fancy killing two birds with one stone? For some, like savvy circler LisaWall, cleaning is also a substitution for exercising:
“I like to set myself a challenge when I clean so I set a timer on my Fitbit for certain tasks. Cleaning the kitchen after tea for example say 45 mins. I also set a timer for an hour and see how much I can achieve in the time, rewarding myself with a coffee break or tech break. Music also helps motivate me, cleaning and singing certainly helps me to keep going. The reward of a lovely clean and tidy environment is the best feeling ever. ❤ ”
