Clean Home, a Shared Responsibility
Posted on July 15,2017 | By admin2
A house becomes a home when the people living in it do so harmoniously. And one major aspect of that is how you maintain the cleanliness within the home and around it. Cleanliness doesn’t just mean a spotless space. It goes beyond that.
In the last 20-odd years, when women have been at paid work outside the house, it is a large enough responsibility to keep the hygiene of the house intact. From dusting and mopping to moving furniture and buying things for the house. It is now a largely shared responsibility – one that involves all who stay in the house.
It doesn’t matter whether you live with friends or family, or share the space with colleagues, the necessity for a clean home is there, nonetheless. Make it an interesting process: play music when you dust or sweep, speak to a friend on speakerphone when you fold clothes, open the windows and let the fresh air come in as you make the bed, etc.
The living space could be a one-bed condo, a large villa, an apartment or a shared area. Irrespective of the size of it, we need to keep things in order. The easiest way to do that is to divide the responsibilities. And divide them according to the abilities and access of each. If there’s a cot to be moved, don’t call an elder person for it; instead get your roomie or teenage son to help you. If there are dishes to be washed, don’t ask your six-year-old, she might want to but will end up messing your kitchen rather than being of help.
Also, it’s fun to rotate chores so that one doesn’t get bored with a particular set of tasks all the time. Don’t let your housemates get tired of repetitive work. Home chores should be enjoyed.
Get kids involved! They love it and will turn out to be responsible if given small chores to do and errands to run. Do it according to age and interest. For someone interested in cooking, make them do up the table, clean dishes or help the mother with kitchen tasks. When you bake a cake, get teens to whisk and fold and roll. We are sure they’d totally be great at it and maybe bake one themselves, soon. Stay happy, stay hygienic!
