I hate cleaning too. That's for servants!
Here are my thoughts on it.
First of all, there's tidy and there's clean.
Clean is important because it helps keep you healthy.
Tidy is not so important and maybe you're just tidying because you're frightened your mother, or another woman, will come 'round and click her tongue at you.
I worked with a woman who was head of a government research group and one day I went to visit her house and she quite clearly did not
think it important to put *anything* away. And she was quite unselfconcious about it.
As for myself, the dining table, and other horizontal surfaces, pile up with stuff. I just push it out of the way until the day it starts to get me down and then
I have a big tidy up.
Now, as for cleaning. It took me years and years to realize that some parts of the house need constant attention and others need almost none.
So now I keep a microfibre cloth in the bathroom and a bottle of domestos beside the toilet. In the time it takes my moisturiser to dry I can wipe down
the basin and bench and clean the toilet.
I also vacuum the shower with a window vac. All in all it takes about 5mins every day. About once a fortnight I clean the shower and sometimes I sweep out the bath.
I never ever clean the whole the bathroom in one go, because it would never get done otherwise.
My other handy hint is, no shoes in the house. Its amazing. Once you go all Japanese the stuff on the floor remains mainly at the front and back doors, so I concentrate
my sweeping there. A quick run around with the broom every day or so. The other end of the house hardly gets dirty at all so I might sweep back there about once every 10 days.
And the other surprise for me is that taking our shoes off keeps the dust down on other surfaces. Much less dusting needed.
The other thing that needs constant attention is kitchen. That needs a quick wipe of the benches and cupboard fronts every night. Again, 1 minutes worth of work!
And other things, like my filthy windows, I make a mental note to clean "one day". I might even do that today. Or not.
So absolutely! A bit at a time! As much as you can stand. Focus on the things that bug you and leave the rest.
