I know you are going to find this hard to believe, but there have been many times in my life when I have not been as happy as I could be. Life, as I’m sure you know, gets “lifey;” things happen for all of us whether it’s divorce, dead-end jobs or difficult dealings. It’s unfortunate that so many of these external factors wind up impacting our happiness.
A top to bottom deep house cleaning is an ever-elusive thing of beauty in my eyes, but but it’s always good to have goals — #housegoals! That being said, it was no surprise to me that there are many common areas and items around the house that many of us don’t regularly (if at all) clean. So here it is — I give you the Top 40 of things you may be forgetting to clean…but shouldn’t!
Ever walk into a room and wonder “why’s it so dark in here?” The answer may not be in the quality of your lighting but rather the quality of cleaning. No shame in admitting it, many of us selectively ignore light fixtures which can be challenging to clean — especially delicate fixtures such as crystal chandeliers or globed items.
Let me preface this by saying that cleaning — in and of itself — is not necessarily my idea of finding bliss. I know I’m far from alone on this one. We push through loads of laundry, folding and furiously vacuuming, sweeping — sweating — in a futile attempt to get to some forever-out-of-reach finish line.
