my house is very, very, extremely messy due to all 4 family members living with depression, anxiety, and mass loads of stress from family problems. my father's mother is coming to town this weekend from out of town and she is a complete neat freak so we are pressured to clean the house to immaculate perfection before she arrives. my bedroom is the focus right now and i just cleaned for almost 6 hours straight with my mom. how do i get my family to learn the importance of 20/10s or 45/15s?
OK, first of all, this is your house, not your grandmother’s, so it needs to be clean to YOUR standards, not hers. If things don’t meet her approval, she can stay in a hotel.
As for getting your family on board, can you have them read the About page and the fundamentals? Failing that, just grab your timer and start. If they’re already on board with needing to clean up, you’ll be setting an example they can follow.
Good luck! Keep us posted.
