Q: I am often ill and overexertion makes me worse. When I’m having a bad time, the house gets squalid. Then when I feel better I CAN’T marathon, but slow and steady is slow. Are things like floor wipes and bathroom cleaning wipes really, really awful?
A: It’s really easy for someone to say, “Yes, those things are awful. Never use them.” But that’s not the whole story. It never is. (more…)
This week’s Ask UfYH!
"Once you’re at the point where you need to spend more than one 20/10 on it in a day to reset it, I’d say it’s not quite at “clean” yet." - ufyh
*a mere 10 minutes later*
….Well I’ll be damned!
I was honestly trying to build myself up to that, just dreading that it was going to take foreverrrrr. 10 freaking minutes. Amazing =D
This week, identify your worst, most mess-attracting surface (dining room table? kitchen counter? coffee table?) and deal with it once and for all. On Day 1, do a few 20/10s to clear it off (it may take less time than you think), and then each day, make sure it’s cleared off and reset to clean at least once during the day. Mess multiplies, so don’t give it anything to build on.
Remember, when you clear it off, don’t just relocate the mess. Put everything where it belongs, or find a place for it to belong.
