‘DOMESTIC CLEANING THE DOWNSIDE OF SPRING’
Watch out! The sun’s shining and suddenly winter cosiness, fire on, slumped on sofa, shows up the lack of domestic cleaning that’s actually been going on!
As you glance around, a thick layer of dust generated by the wood burner or coal fire appears to have silently coated just about everything. In fact the motes of dust are dancing right in front of your eyes as a shaft of light lands on the carpet which never used to be that dull colour did it? Really?
Does that sound familiar? Well, dear readers it’s time for some house cleaning, aren’t you just so glad to be alive?
Sometimes it’s too difficult even knowing where to start. So, first things first, no slacking now! De-clutter, be ruthless. Stacks of newspapers and magazines can go off to be recycled, trust me, you never will need those tips for 101 uses of old socks!
Throughout the winter, light levels, a perfectly placed low wattage lamp, will have given the illusion your house was perfectly clean. Mind you, if you check carefully, bet you’ll find stray pine needles from Christmas and the odd screwed up chocolate wrapper that missed the waste paper bin whilst being engrossed in the boxed set of Sex In The City!
So, once you’ve de-cluttered , empty the room as far as possible, wash the ornaments , strip the shelves, a mild solution of vinegar or bicarb of soda and water will get things sparkling again, a carpet shampoo wouldn’t go amiss and have you looked at the state of the sofa recently? Er, lifted the cushions? Moved it back from the wall? Ah, thought not.
Still if you do, you may notice the indents left in the carpet. Did you know that an ice cube placed in one of these carpet dents will make the fibres swell? If you then vacuum the wet fibres they will stand upright again. Think of it as Rug Viagra! You see, I told you domestic cleaning could be exciting!
That’s just one room, how many more to go? Think of it as a challenge: just how bored can I be in one day! Still, if you are that way inclined, domestic cleaning can give off a tantalising whiff of smug satisfaction when you finally collapse in the chair with a cup of tea and a choccy biscuit knowing the house is spotless. Unfortunately the feeling can be fleeting as you watch the dog trail mucky paw prints from the kitchen door right through, bless!
If this vision of domestic bliss doesn’t float your boat then you might want to consider the alternative: a domestic cleaning service. Imagine handing the keys to a band of willing house gnomes, or just the one domestic goddess, who will transform your home from pig sty pretender to sparkling show home. Tantalising thought isn’t it, saying, ‘Please clean my house’?
