3 Helpful Tips To Manage a Dusty House

dusty home

In Indian homes, it is extremely common for houses to get dusty. No matter which part of the country you live in, you experience dust problems everywhere.

This affects the lot of us who try to keep our homes spic and span, and those of us who are not all that chores friendly, but still love a clean house. Besides sweeping the floors daily, dusting the tops of every piece of furniture at home , dust is often a big bother.

This is much unlike colder countries, like US, Great Britain and others in Europe, where people do not need to manually clean their homes every day. They can afford to keep one day of the week aside for cleaning, simply because things do not get as dirty.

In India though, things are very different. We can never think of avoiding the dusting, or sweeping, even for a day. Thank God there are better ways to deal with and manage these tasks, with a little forward planning.

Divide the House into Segments for Cleaning Up

In India, it is natural to have the floors swept and mopped daily, no matter how big or how small is the size of the house. However, when it comes to dusting, you do not necessarily have to dust every corner of the house, or every piece of furniture daily.

In fact, you can divide the house by the number of rooms, and dust the house by allotting each room a dusting day. For instance, Mondays can be for the living room, Tuesdays for the dining room etc.

This will greatly reduce the time you or your help spend in keeping the house clean.

Use Machines to Reduce Workload

The more manual work you do, the more tired you will get. If keeping the house clean is important and a huge priority, invest in machines that will help you complete the tasks faster and more efficiently. Washing machines are a common machine in every household these days, but vacuum cleaners for cleaning purposes aren’t. Start buying machines that help you keep the house clean with minimum effort, and feel less harassed by cleaning chores.

Clean Parts of The House Less Used Only Few Times a Month

Sometimes, in large old style Indian homes, families end up using just two or three rooms. The other few rooms are usually kept empty. No one sleeps or stays there. These rooms are also used to store things. If you have rooms in the house that are not really used by anyone, keep it locked throughout the week. Open it once in a week, or a fortnight, to get the entire cleaning done from floors to windows, to the decor.

Hope these tips help you in economising your cleaning chores, and gain some delightful ‘me’ time.

Fasten your seat belts – this could be a bumpy day! Major changes are at work and all you can do is surrender. If you are in conflict with others, or frustrated about your work life, try not to make this the major focus of negative thinking. Find reasons to feel grateful.

This isn’t a good day to travel, especially by air. Long lines at the ticket counter, endless delays, and lost luggage could be the result. This may not even be a good day to plan a trip, although you can consider your options. If you must fly today, get to the airport early, travel light, and take something good to read. That will make it bearable.

Right now, you seem to be in a balanced state of mind. You are finally able to accept what went wrong in past relationships and learn from them. Also, because of this newfound calm, you are comfortable in the present situation as well which is further helped by support from loved ones. It’s important to be quiet and listen by mediating and try to get in touch with your inner self.

You can be a very stylish dresser. This need not be an expensive proposition. Take advantage of sales or trade with friends to update your wardrobe. Combine creative and practical ideas to make a big impression. Spend some of today thinking about organizing a project you really want to accomplish.

It’s a day to be brave. State your opinions even if you think they’re different or unpopular. Wear the clothes you like and stop putting yourself down compared to others. A self-confident attitude will attract people who share your interests and sincerely admire what you do.

You may be scheming behind the scenes to get your way. Just focusing on your own needs can be a mistake. Make sure your choices aren’t manipulative. You may be defensive and unwilling to talk about your thoughts. Focus on achieving the greatest good for all. You’re difficult to stop when you know what you want.

Your creative imagination is inspired today. Listen to your dreams and ask for what you need. Check the facts at work, as there can be unexpected confusion. It is the perfect day to begin any new project. Your skills may be especially helpful with a group of women who share your interests.

A female friend you haven’t seen for a while could surprise you with a call or visit. A lot of interesting news and useful information could be exchanged that benefits both of you. You may make a number of short journeys throughout the day, as you have a lot that needs doing. A small increase in income could also be in the works. In the evening, rent a romantic video.

Your intuition is operating at a very high level today. You tend to follow your heart by nature, so you don’t always go out of your way to be logical or objective. However, more than one event could occur during the day in which it’s imperative that you go with your intuition even though it defies all logic. Have a little faith and go with your gut!
