The Jobs We Hate To Do at Home and Some Tips On How To Get the Best Results

Taking care of your home can be no easy task, whether you are at work all day or stay home with your kids. Whatever your situation, household chores are not easy to keep on top of. So I thought I would share some of the worst household chores we have to deal with and a few tips on how to get the best results.

 

The carpets

It’s all well and good using a vacuum on your carpet, but when do you get a chance to clean them? Hardly ever, I can imagine. It’s just not the easiest task to do is it? You can get special carpet cleaning machines or even try and scrub them yourself, but both can be time consuming. So sometimes it’s easier to call in a service which offers carpet cleaning to do the hard work for you. It will get done in half the time it would take you to do it, and possibly give you better results.

 

Blinds and curtains

Cleaning your blinds and curtains can also be a task that takes time. They can gather dust in your home and leave marks on them that need cleaning. Curtains are much easier to sort by taking them down and popping them in a washing machine. However, blinds can be a lot harder. There is a DIY solution that you can make to clean your blinds well. All you need is water, white vinegar and two old socks. Mix equal parts of water and vinegar. PLace your hand in the sock and put into the solution. Then use your hand to wipe the blinds. Then use the dry sock to wipe away any excess. The results are amazing.

Oven cleaning

I think this may be one of the worst jobs to do in the kitchen. It’s all that grease that can be difficult to scrub off. So a great solution is to use baking soda and vinegar. Use a sponge and rub the solution into the grease. Leave for a few minutes and then wipe away. The grease comes away easily. It is handy to have a bucket of water close by to keep your sponge clean.

 

The windows on the inside and out

Cleaning windows on the inside and out can be a task that takes you ages. It’s not the easiest as some of the windows are not easily accessible. So if you have a window cleaner that has a round including your street next time you see them ask to be added to the round. It doesn’t cost too much, and it is money well spent to keep them clean and save yourself a hard job.

The garden

Finally, the garden can be a real chore, unless you enjoy it. While getting a gardener can be a great solution, this can be quite costly. A great tip is to invest a little time in making your garden an easy maintenance or maintenance-free garden. That way, when you do need to give it the attention, it’s well within your skill level and time.

I hope this helps you get to grips with some of the most hated household chores.
