How do I clean off freshly-dead spider from a wall? I literally just dragged a Vaseline jar over this sucker, leaving a black smear and twitchy limbs. It's right over my bed. What do I do to avoid "bit-fallout?" Wet washcloth or plain paper towel?
Try that first. Bug smears usually wipe right up.
Every time I Unfuss my bedroom, something pops up and it becomes a horrible mess again. What do I do? I get so discouraged because I do a great job and sustain it for a little while, then it all goes to pot. :'(
Well, the thing about unfucking is that it’s not a one-shot deal. It’s a constant process. Generall, you should be doing at least 20 minutes every day in order to maintain what’s already bee done. Once something’s clean, it doesn’t just STAY clean. You have to keep it that way.
How Clean is your House is the BEST motivation for me! When I was living in apartments at school, my roommate and I were the ONLY ones who did any sort of cleaning without being asked. We got BBC America on our television, so we'd look for that show (or we'd search around on the YouTubes), and we would be so horrified that the apartments were spotless by the time we were done!
Kim and Aggie hold a very special place in my heart. I remember some U.S. network tried to make an American version, and it was TERRIBLE. I wanted to punch the narrator for not being the awesome BBC narrator.
I finally got my closet (somewhat) clean! Unfortunately there's not a lot that can be done to completely salvage it, but I hauled out two HUGE garbage bags full of junk! :)
That sounds like a lot to me!
Oh the rest of the house is miserable, really, and if I had a lock, I'd use it. I might just move a bookcase in front of the door to keep them out....I seriously just thought of that. :\ Thank you for the help~
Good luck, and don’t let their jealousy and sabotage deter you from keeping your space how you want it.
I've discovered recently that it might well be physically impossible for me to unf*ck my bedroom while my parental units are home. Can't wait until I can afford to move out--but that's another story. Anyway, they always poke their heads in with a snide remark or worse: they try to "help" (i.e. steal things).--How can I make unf*cking my room easier while they're around?
Headphones and a padlock.
Snide remarks are a weird form of hostility most likely stemming from the fact that they’re maybe a little confused and jealous that you’re getting your shit together. (Are they neat people, or is the rest of the house kind of a mess?) The “helping”/stealing is just a less passive form of sabotage. Put some good music on, lock the door, and clean to your heart’s content.
