Magic to Disappear (0-10 Minutes)

Spell the magic words to disappear everything which is not organized. Be cruel about throwing out the used kinds of stuff or bottles or anything else. “You have to be cruel to be kind”.

At first, think about a hotel room.

Is there any extra sheet on the bed? Any pen or paper on the table? Left-over on the dining table? Newspaper or Magazine or remote-control on the floor? Wet towel or cloth in the bathroom? The extra power cable of the laptop or cell phone?

Answer: A BIG NO.

So, remove these things without thinking for a second. Keep the used cloths in the basket. You don’t have any basket? Okay, use your shower bucket for it. We’ll clean them later. Now, hide the stuffs inside the drawers. We’ll re-arrange them later too. Yes, there will be a next episode where we’ll discuss the elaborate process of cleaning and organizing the house.

Let’s move on. Utilize your waste-bin. Throw away the leftovers. I know, you planned to eat them on the coming weekend. well, you’ll never do it actually. I never did!

Throw away the plastic bottles, beer cans, used shampoo or deodorant bottles and old newspapers. Believe me; these will never be used to make any of those YouTube or Pinterest DIY stuffs.

Now run to your bedroom and make the bed as fast as possible. Tuck the ends of the bed-sheet under the end of the mattress and put the pillows on right places. Re-arrange the toiletries of the bathroom. Remember the spell – “No extra thing. Be cruel”. There should not be any extra things on the kitchen table. Its better to have a blank table rather than having a messy one.

Remove every extra thing from eye-sight – by throwing or by hiding. It’s a short-cut and just the starting. So, cheating is allowed. Our goal is to have a tidy house as fast as possible, not organized cabinets and drawers.

Mop and Drop (10 to 25 Minutes)

Having a clean floor is more than important to have a tidy house. It really matters a lot. Sand under the feet – this feeling is exhilarating on the sea beaches, not inside our house. If you have a tendency to walk barefoot like me, you’ll hate the dust on the floor too. And another thing is – extra water on the floor is also annoying and risky. So, let’s start with mopping the floors to clean the dust and remove the last water drop.

For now, we’ll leave the thorough dusting of furniture and will concentrate on the mopping.

Ok, quiz time. Tell me the first point of mopping. Ummm, bringing the mop bucket? Right?

Noooo, wrong. At first, turn on the fan or open the windows for air circulation. It is really important to dry the floor as fast as possible after mopping. Now, use a water-dampened mop and start. You can add floor-cleaning material with fresh water for a good fragrance. Oh, do you know one thing? Mopping is a good kind of free-hand exercise. It burns calories.

So, we are all set. Everything is ready. Go! Hit the floor!!

Let’s start the mopping from the back corner of the room. With long strokes, end the mopping to the doorway. Don’t forget about the bathroom. Don’t increase the chance of slipping on the bathroom. Mop it too.

Check the sinks and floor of your kitchen. They need to be dry too. Don’t hesitate to mop them quickly.

Recheck your shoes now. They should be inside the cupboard or at the corner of the entrance. Did you forget about the music? Change that playlist now. Some soothing music will work better with the fragrance.
