A must-do for both your health and happiness…however, despite its high priority level…cleaning doesn’t always feature at the top of our list of priorities.
Cleaning divides many a household with 46% of couples who live together arguing about cleaning, this includes who should do it, and how often it should be done1.
It’s said that your home reflects your state of mind with a clean home equating to a clear mind. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and love in the air, we want to inspire a love for the must-do household chores to make your cleaning life easier and restore household harmony!
CHANGE YOUR MINDSET
Cultivating the right attitude towards any task will help with its successful completion! We’ve established that cleaning is a healthy-living essential, and for the most part, cleaning is thought of as a chore we have to endure. Switch-up your mentality and generate a feeling of satisfaction towards cleaning, be satisfied with each chore complete and take time to enjoy your clean space as soon as your cleaning routine is complete.
REMOVE CHEMICALS FROM THE EQUATION
Cleaning shouldn’t be about harsh ingredients and the smell of chemicals… hardly the answer to a healthier home, chemicals can cause irritation to your airways, eyes and your skin. Make cleaning kinder by removing chemicals for a safer, healthier clean. ENJO’s handcrafted fibre cleaning range allows you to clean your entire home with nothing but water by trapping dirt and bacteria within its specially woven, ultra-fine fibres. Your home will look good and you will feel good.
Quicker cleaning is a sure fire way for everyone to fall back in love with cleaning. Instead of tying yourself down to a big weekly clean, more frequent spot cleans will see you spend less time cleaning, and more time doing the things you love with the ones you love. Keep your cleaning products in convenient places, wipe down your kitchen bench and bathroom vanity at the end of each day, use the ENJO Floorcleaner with the Dust Floor Fibre to keep dust and floor dirt to a minimum.
PUMP YOUR PLAYLIST
Music is extraordinarily powerful, with a single song having the ability to lift your mood and brighten your day. Music makes repetitive tasks more enjoyable, and has also been found that happy, upbeat music can lead to increased productivity and cooperation2. So when you’re about to commence your cleaning routine, put on a playlist that’s sure to put a smile on your dial and enjoy a quicker clean.
In addition to creating a healthier home, your cleaning routine helps to improve your physical health. Doing household chores is equal in exercise terms to medium-intensity aerobics, giving your muscles a workout and raising your heart rate. Sweeping for 30 minutes is said to burn approximately 135 calories, and even light cleaning jobs such a dusting can burn up to 171 calories per hour3. Make a conscious effort to put maximum effort into your cleaning routine, to get the best results for you and your home.
FIND A HANDY HELPER
Sharing is caring, and you’re much more likely to love what you’re doing when you have someone helping you out. The great thing about cleaning with ENJO is that it’s safe for the whole family, cleaning just as effectively without the chemicals. Get your cleaning done in half the time with a happy little helper.
MAKE SURE YOU LOVE THE SPACE
Cleaning is never going to seem as appealing if you don’t love your home. Taking the time to make sure you love the spaces you spend the most time in will make all the difference when it comes to summoning up the energy to clean. Something as simple as rearranging the furniture or decluttering can bring a new sense of life to a space, and there’s nothing more satisfying than a beautifully clean home.
PUT A PLAN IN PLACE
Routine makes life easier, it means you have one less thing to think about and it’s something we creatures of habit tend to crave. To make your cleaning life easier think about the things you need to do daily, weekly and monthly to make your cleaning life easier, put a plan in place and stick to it.
