This tip came from my apartment roommate many, many years ago. She suggested that we each clean our bathroom sink each time we used it. I tried it and liked the tip. It usually took a few seconds to do this, my sink at least looked clean all the time, and heavier cleaning was simple. It became a habit, and I still do it.
I am keeping up with my shower cleaning tip from last year. It is becoming a habit, and the shower never looked so clean! This really works for me.
Now.....I wonder how I can keep up on dusting. Maybe I will try leaving my duster out in the kitchen where it is visible and easily accessible.
Another trick that helps remind me to clean.....in the bathroom I leave a few cleaning supplies on the counter instead of hidden under the sink. They are in a nice container from which they are easily grabbed.
I also splurge and buy cleansers that smell good, look good, and work. Some of them are not harsh (I like Meyers) and I might eventually switch completely to these. They are better for the environment and they don't bother my nose. Cleaning is more pleasant now!
Why these tips? I hate the discipline of cleaning on a regular basis. I seem to expend all that energy on other things, such as practicing. Now that my kids are gone from home I am not as overwhelmed and I'm actually becoming interested in improving my cleaning skills. Also, I am aging and my body is happier if I do things little by little instead of occasional giant cleaning sprees. I have less injuries! I'm improving bit by bit......there's hope for me!
Now....if only I could transfer this desire to paperwork..........
