Clothes, clothes everywhere
Mum has to go around after everyone, collecting clothes from floors, beds, chairs, even the bathroom sink. So why not get rid of this part of the day.
Daz laundry tips: Get 3 small laundry baskets, one each for whites, colours and delicates. If an item isn’t in a basket, it doesn’t get washed. Now you only have to pick up a basket and take it to the washing machine. Much easier.
It’s also easier if you have just one laundry detergent to wash everything with. Daz is perfect for all your loads, just make sure to use the right amount.
Dirty, dirty dishes
The kitchen can seem like a warzone some days. A great way to make sure the dishes get done is by setting up a competition.
Put up a high score chart and see who can get through the dishes in the quickest time. Everyone will compete to get their name at the top of the board, you can put your feet up and the washing up gets done in double quick time.
If there’s still no help, try a different tack: dinner! Get everyone involved in the process, laying the table, tasting the food and enjoying themselves. Dad would love the excuse to escape to the shop for 5 minutes, just make sure he returns with the milk you asked for or this quick chore tip is wasted!
Dirt? What dirt?
The living room is the next battleground, especially if you want to vacuum while everyone else is watching TV. Instead, do dusting when others are around and only mop and vacuum while your kids aren’t around.
Whenever they play with their toys, put them away immediately, that way you’ll never step on that painful fire truck again.
For all general cleaning, just spend a few minutes every day, that way you won’t need to spend hours going at it on Saturday. Easy.
With your household chores and laundry now simpler than ever, you can have more time in the day for yourself. Bingo.
