One of the less exciting and time-consuming parts of life is chores. It doesn’t matter how you approach them; people will often put off chores until the last possible moment. However, there are a few ways that you can make your chores a little easier to do. Just follow these simple steps to make your life easier.
Set Yourself a Time Limit
If you are not looking forward to doing the chores, then you will most likely take a long time to do them because you will be distracted. To make sure you get them all done as quickly as possible, set yourself a time limit of 30 minutes. Try to get as much done in that time as you can; you might be surprised how much you can do. That will then give you time for other fun things instead.
Work Job by Job
Instead of going from room to room cleaning each one as you go, try doing chores a different way. Work job to job around the house, by doing all the laundry, then all the dusting, then all the vacuuming. You might think this takes longer, but you are not having to keep taking everything around with you to each room.
Keep Your Oven and Cooktop Clean
One of the worst jobs in the house is cleaning the oven and the cooking top. They often get covered in grime that takes a lot of hard work to remove. If you want to cut down on the scrubbing, think about placing some foil on the bottom of the oven. The foil will catch all the grime, so you only need to remove it and start again. You can also do this to your worktops to keep splashes and spills from getting on the cooker. Of course, in some instances, wear, tear and overuse could mean you may need to look at replacing certain features in your kitchen. Research Bosch Cooktops to get inspired for new additions.
Making the Bed
If you want to speed up the time it takes you to make the bed, then you should consider matching all the sets first. When they are washed, place all the same set in a pillowcase, so you don’t have to spend time trying to find the matching set.
Save Time Ironing
If you often have to iron your clothes because they get creased in the washing machine, then try turning down the spin speed. By doing that, you will make fewer creases in your clothes so fewer of them will need ironing. You will need to remove the clothes as soon as the cycle is finished.
Dusting blinds can be tricky, especially if you try to do it with a cloth. However, you can try to use a damp sock. Just put your hand inside the damp sock and use it to clean the blinds. You can then throw the sock in the wash afterward.
By doing these and many other time-saving ideas, you can get through your chores quickly and easily. You will then have more time to have fun or simply relax.
