When your surroundings at home are clean, you feel happy, motivated, and healthy. However, hearing the word ‘cleaning’ turns away eyes to avoid shouldering the responsibility as some may find it tiresome or boring.
So, fret not as Clorox Philippines, one of the country’s leading providers of cleaning and disinfecting products, provides you a long-term solution to keep your home neat and clean all the time – a cleaning calendar. Why? Because cleaning your household can be fun and meaningful when the cleaning schedule is done right.
To help you decide whether having a cleaning calendar is better or not, here's why it’s important to adopt in your household and encourage your family members or housemates to start doing their part when it comes to cleaning.
Everyone shares responsibility at home
Whether daily or weekly, having a cleaning schedule helps you and everyone in the household share responsibility in keeping your home clean and tidy. You can help them choose a specific task that they will enjoy doing, like sweeping the floor or making sure that they follow proper waste segregation.
In the long run, you will not nag them anymore to remember since keeping the house well-kept all the time will be second nature to them.
Ensures that all tasks are not falling on one person
From commercials to TV dramas, homemakers tirelessly doing the house chores all by themselves is a familiar scenario. But it doesn't have to be that way. Planning a cleaning calendar puts everyone at work. Someone must be assigned to wash the dishes after eating, vacuum the floors, wipe down the kitchen counters, disinfect doors and walkways, clean the bathroom, and so much more.
Prevents Big Pile of Messes
Most of the time, spending the whole day just scrubbing and cleaning the house is the dragging part of cleaning. However, making a weekly cleaning calendar for every member of the household would designate the tasks equally and avoid chores piling up. Mondays can be for bedrooms, Tuesdays for bathroom, Thursdays for living room, Saturdays for the kitchen, or whatever works with your other activities.
Builds bonding and relationship
Who said that cleaning couldn't be fun? Keeping your house clean requires a team effort like how you play in a game to win. A little bit of creativity and a family movie night reward at the end of the day is already a booster. Not to mention, all those funny stories and a few bubbles can make your kids giggle while doing their cleaning task.
You save budget from hiring a professional house cleaner
Whether you have your family, friends, or workmates sharing in one space together, it is vital to take part in picking up a cleaning task. If no one wants to do it, then a professional house cleaner will do it for you, of course, for a fee. But why hire someone if you can do it yourself and save costs?
