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.

On a hot summer day an elderly gentleman faints in the street. A small crowd immediately gathers around him.

“Give the poor man a glass of brandy,” advises a woman.

“Give him a heart massage, ” says someone else.

“No, just give him some brandy,” insists the woman.

“Call an ambulance," yells another person.

“A brandy!”

The man suddenly sits up and exclaims. “Shut up, everybody,and do as the kind lady says!” continue reading...
