Are you constantly juggling a million things at once and can’t find the time to clean your home as much as you would like to?
The truth is, whether you’re a parent, a busy professional, or both, household chores can quickly become time-consuming.
In fact, according to a study published by Pew Research Center, the average American household spends a staggering 28 hours per week performing household chores!
Mind-blowing, isn’t it?
The good news is that there are some tips and tricks for you to minimize the amount of time you spend on household chores and maximize your time doing the things you love. And we’ve listed five of them in this article.
Shut Out Distractions
Ever found yourself spending way too much time dusting or cleaning the windows because you’re texting, looking after the kids, or watching TV at the same time?
If you’re distracted when cleaning your home, you’ll end up spending a lot longer performing all of your household chores than you would if you were 100% focused on the job.
So, turn the TV off, put your phone away and get your hands dirty. And if you have to entertain the kids at the same time, try to set up little activities they can do on their own for set periods. This way, you’ll be able to tackle a full task at once.
This might sound obvious, but when we’re busy, it can be tempting to put off certain household chores. The problem with this is that as the load increases each day and the dirt accumulates, performing each task ends up taking much longer than if you’d adopted a ‘’clean-as-you-go’’ approach.
Besides, it can be hard to do a good job if the space you’re trying to clean is cluttered and filled with papers and dirty dishes or clothes. Putting things away immediately after using them will allow you to clean each room much more quickly.
Invest In Time-Saving Cleaning Tools
How good would it be if a robot could clean your floors and windows for you?
Well, we’ve got good news!
The HOBOT floor and window cleaning robots are designed to vacuum and mop floors and clean inside and outside windows. The great thing about HOBOT robots is that they’re really easy to use, can save you a lot of time, hassle, and money, and the window cleaning robots can also be used on mirrors, shower cabins, kitchen countertops, or even walls.
No more spending time vacuuming, mopping, cleaning your windows, and hurting your back in the process!
Keep Your Oven Clean At All Times
Cleaning a dirty oven is easily one of the least pleasant tasks to perform in the house and also one of the most time-consuming.
That’s when oven liners come into play! An over liner is a mat you can place at the bottom of your oven. They’re designed to catch any falling food and are easily removable and washable. This will prevent any grease from forming at the bottom of the oven. Another tip is to use a roasting bag when cooking meat, fish, and vegetables, as it will significantly reduce spills and prevent grime build-up.
Use A Lemon to Clean Your Sinks and Bathtub
The minerals present in water combined with soap can produce soap scum. And unless you clean your sinks and bathtub or shower every day, it can be extremely hard and time-consuming to remove with chemical-based cleaning products.
However, using lemon can work wonders! That’s because the acid in lemon quickly breaks down the bacteria found in soap scum. So, simply cut a lemon in half and rub the inner flesh on the sink's walls, the bathtub, and any tiles in your shower. Wait for a couple of minutes and ta-da, your facilities will look like new!
We hope this article will help you enjoy more time with your friends and family and spend less time cleaning. After all, life is too short to spend hours doing household chores every week! This is exactly why we designed the Hobot range. If you have any questions about the way our robots work, the technology they use, or anything else, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’d love to help!
