My solution to make my housework “lighter”
when I go into a room, I always try to leave it cleaner than when I went in. Sometimes in rooms like the powder room, it’s just a matter of washing a few spots off the mirror or using a Clorox wipe to keep door knobs,or handles disinfected. In larger rooms, there always seems to be something to return to it’s proper place or dust and grim to be wiped up. I also like to carry a damp cleaning rag as walk though the house to wipe the dust off of surfaces or the tops of pictures on the wall. After all, I’m walking through anyway and I might a well keep the dirt and sticky bits at a minimum. This is particularly helpful for those times when children are in the house and it makes clean up a lot easier. Anything to save my aching back, I’m in favor of!
