How a summer soundtrack can help banish the cleaning blues
Getting stuck into cleaning can be daunting at the best of times, but when the sun is shining outside, putting on the rubber gloves is often the last thing you want to be doing - as even the professionals will tell you.
But, while expert cleaners may differ on what products and tools they rely on to get the job done, almost all will agree on one thing: a little music can go a long way. So, now the summer is here, why not take a few minutes to revamp your cleaning playlist and ensure that you have a little extra spring in your step when it's time to get onto the household chores again.
So, what to put on that playlist? Thankfully, there's no shortage of music recommendations from professional cleaners listed all over the internet, and while people's personal tastes will always differ, there are still some standout tips for making a playlist that will make even the most mundane task fun.
First and foremost, the general consensus among cleaning pros - and full-time homemakers - the world over is turn it up loud! Cleaning is no time for sensitive singer-songwriters or ethereal classical music. You need guilty pleasures played at full volume if you want to make the time fly by.
Also, don't be afraid to really get into the grooves. As most homemakers know only too well, you're usually on your own when you're cleaning, so there's no need to be self-conscious. Turn that mop into an air guitar, or the spray can into a microphone.
Far from distracting you from the task in hand, injecting a little extra fun into household cleaning can make you work harder, pushing you to scrubs deep into those hard-to-reach nooks and crannies and even get round to tackling tough jobs you've been putting off for far too long.
If this still seems too much though, then call in the experts who can get the job done for you.
