Whether you’re studying, eating or cleaning, it’s always wise to leave the best for last.
Think of it this way. If you’re served a plate of food with your least favourite vegetable but your all-time favourite roast potatoes, it’s best to tackle the veggies first so that you get to fully savour the roast potatoes. That way, you can enjoy them to the full with absolute peace of mind and no distractions. It’s the same concept when it comes to cleaning. Tackle the jobs you least enjoy first so that you can move onto the easier, more pleasant tasks with more energy.
The Top 3 Worst Cleaning Jobs Ever
No-one really wants to stick their hand down a loo to clean up after someone else. The fact that toilets are icky is beyond dispute but they are full of germs that may lead to illness or infection so they are a priority for cleaning. Be sure to clean under rims and to use a strong disinfectant.
Oil from cars or stoves leave a terrible mess. The surfaces remain greasy and collect all kinds of dust and other dirt. They are not only unsightly; they’re difficult and dirty jobs to tackle.
You’ll need a good degreaser and a lot of patience. We’d go with something stronger than vinegar here. Try a grease-cutting cleaner available at your grocer or hardware store. Wipe with a sponge to loosen stubborn dirt and then spray with your degreaser. Wash off with water and repeat if necessary.
Here’s another horrible job. But if left unattended you might find maggots crawling out of your garbage bin!
Try to freeze any meaty waste until its garbage collection day. Meat left to rot in your garbage can will smell pretty bad and may literally end up encouraging the appearance of maggots, particularly over the hot summer months.
Get into the habit of washing the garbage can with a strong disinfectant whenever you remove a bag. This way, you’ll reduce the chance of unwanted rubbish smells in the home.
Delayed gratification reaps a host of rewards including the feeling of having accomplished something you’ve avoided doing.
