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.

'Smart' Thinking

There are three blondes who are on a road trip.

As they are driving through the desert, their car breaks down. They have no phone to call anyone, so they decide to walk to the nearest city, several miles away.

They each decide to take one thing to make the journey better. The first blonde takes the radio and says, "If we get bored, we can put the radio on and listen to music."

The second blonde decides to take continue reading...

A friend or colleague involved in an enterprise with you could be inhibited in some way by lack of money. This might involve some unexpected adjustment on your part, perhaps finding someone else to temporarily fill in. It’s a pain, but you and your colleagues will manage, and your friend should have it together in time. Find a way to work around the situation. Hang in there.

This could be a very busy day and you will be wise to work from a list. You can be a wonderful influence on children and might want to make this a special time for them. Calls to people who are introverted can make a huge difference in their lives.

If you are getting that tingling feeling today then rejoice, cause Cupid is right around the corner! Love and romance are definitely on the agenda for today. So you should be feeling warm, passionate, and particularly sexy. You’re likely to be walking with a spring in your step which will make people sit up and take notice. This is a wonderful day to shop for new clothes, have your hair styled, or prepare a candlelit dinner for someone very special. Go for it!

You may spend much of your day trying to sort out financial matters for yourself, your job, or perhaps for a friend or relative. A lot of phone calls, and a lot of research, perhaps on the Internet, could be necessary in order to accomplish this. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll attack it with determination and feel a great deal of satisfaction when you’re done. Go to it!

If you wake up this morning and want nothing more than to stay under the sheets and cuddle a little longer, know that you aren’t alone. There is a sensitive warmth about the day that’s making you feel vulnerable. Make sure to surround yourself with supportive people today. Harsh words are likely to cut more deeply than usual, making you wish you’d just stayed in bed all day.

Today you’ll feel as though your energy has come home. Oftentimes, if you aren’t feeling 100 percent yourself, you’ll refuse to leave the house. Today you should feel much better and ready to take on the world. Your emotions are in line with your actions, and things should be crystal clear for you. You know the route you want to take. The path is obvious.

You might feel that money is flowing out of your bank account all too quickly lately, and this might be a cause of worry for you. You could feel you’ve spent too much on decorations for your home or on entertaining family and friends. Don’t worry! You’ll make up for it, and besides, you can’t take it with you, you know. Watch your spending, but don’t turn into a miser.

Your emotions will feel stable today although there may be an unexpected element trying to sneak into the equation. Be aware that people will be a bit more volatile today. Although the situation may be calm and cool one minute, it has the potential to be explosive the next. Try to stay centered all day so you don’t get thrown off course by other people’s erratic emotions.

Come out of your shell today. You’ll notice that people are much more sensitive to your feelings because they seem to be more emotional themselves. Communication is likely to occur more through unspoken channels than traditional methods. Many words can be conveyed with a look, wink, or long hug. Let others know that you’re listening to them.
