If you stop and really think about all the nasty germs in your house, and all of the semi-gross things that you touch everyday, there’s a decent chance you’ll have a freak out.
Don’t do it! Make the problem manageable by focusing on one “healthy home” task a day. If you can stick to this weekly schedule, you’ll go a long way towards living in a wholesome, non-freak-out-inducing place.
Sunday: Pillows & Sheets
Wash your pillows and sheets in hot water – this will kill germs and reduce dust. Bonus: It’ll keep your face clear and beautiful.
Monday: Fridge & Leftovers
Fridge check! Do a quick audit for any expired meats, dairies or other perishable items. Leftovers that are more than four days old need to go, too.
Toss your sponges in the dishwasher and run on the hottest cycle! This will disinfect them.
Give your toothbrush a quick dip in boiling water. This will clear away any… uh… bathroom-related spores.
Thursday: Switches & Handles
Use a disinfectant spray to clean your light switches and fridge handle, because they’re two of the nastiest surfaces in your home.
Friday: Pay It Forward
Happy weekend! Do a random favor for a housemate or neighbor – it’ll help them out, and make you feel better, too. Great way to start the weekend!
Saturday: Your Mood
Spending the day at home? Open all of your shades or blinds so plenty of light gets in throughout the day – it’ll improve your mood!
