How to Make House Cleaning Fun

We all enjoy having a clean home, but how many of us can say that we enjoy the process of cleaning? Most of us hate it, some don’t mind it, but very few actually find it fun. 

You can always look up cleaning companies in the Museum District and find yourself other entertainment. However, if you want to go it alone, we’ve got some tips for you to make your domestic chores fun. Read on! 

What can I do to start enjoying house cleaning?

Housekeeping can be fun, or at least mildly enjoyable. Check out our tips that will help you start enjoying this generally tedious activity.

Play music

Loud or soft, pop or classical, music can elevate your mood, make you move, and engage your brain while you are wiping, scrubbing, or vacuuming your floors as thoroughly as possible. Singing and dancing to the music can make house cleaning less monotonous, so pick your favorite playlist and crank up the volume! 

Work out while you clean

Jumping jacks and sit-ups are not the only way to exercise. A good cleaning session can really get your heart rate up. Labor-intensive chores, like washing floors or scrubbing the shower will allow you to skip your aerobics class for that day. 

Make it a social occasion                                                                    How to Make House Cleaning Fun

Involving other people can make it easier to motivate yourself to take up cleaning your home. If you invite friends over to keep you company, your spring or move-out cleaning will be more fun. If you have kids, they can also help. Create a game or tell a story to engage them. The more helping hands you have, the easier you will complete your chores. Just don’t forget to splurge for some great grub afterwards.

Keep your eyes on the prize 

Seeing the bigger picture can also help you a lot. Cleaning just because your home is dirty, may not be particularly motivating. On the other hand, prepping for a party or a family gathering, or having a comprehensive pre-vacation clean-up would be more enticing. 

Time yourself 

Try to guess how long it will take you to clean up a room, or how many rooms you can clean in 20 minutes. Then set the timer and compete with yourself. It can be encouraging when you realize how much you can actually do in just 5 or 10 minutes. 

Give a call to your loved ones 

You never get to catch up with your friends or family? Cleaning can be a great opportunity to chat on the phone! You can use earbuds and easily talk while your hands are busy. It will feel like you have company and time will pass more quickly. 

Listen to a podcast

Another activity perfect for cleaning time. Save your favorite podcast and wait until you need to do your chores. You’ll have something to look forward to, and dusting, wiping and vacuuming will be more fun! 

Give yourself a treat

Washing or tidying can take a large chunk of your free time. To make your life easier, think of a treat for yourself before you even start your cleaning. Knowing that you’ll get a reward, such as having a drink with friends or taking the afternoon off, you are more likely to find your chores fun and enjoyable.
