The Simple Cleaning Tip that Changes Everything
That is, until I realized that doing so made cleaning those surfaces so much harder!
Yes, I was really tired. Yes, a thousand other things pulled at me, shouting, "I need attention...right now!" (Not to mention children were literally pulling on me, saying "Mama! Mama!") But putting off cleaning messes only meant more work, more energy, and more time later.
So I learned to clean messes the way I cleaned my children: Right away.
(Okay, confession time: I'm not perfect at this. Sometimes I still put off cleaning messes. But I know the work is much easier if I don't!)
So next time your sweet babes, your husband, or you make a mess, stop. Clean it up right then. Usually, it will take less than a minute. Rarely will it take more than a couple of minutes. And then it's done. It won't tug at your mind, it won't weigh you down, and it will clean up quickly and easily, rather than requiring more effort on your part.
It's a game changer, friends.
