I have found the secret to cleaning!
Do you want to know what the secret to cleaning is? For I have found it, and I, the kind soul that I am, shall tell you. It is this:

Make a list, and do not sit down. Sitting down is your enemy.

I have also found that Resolve is an amazing, wonderful godsend, and I may not have to buy new carpets after all.

And cleaning the stairs is one of those things that has a very high activation energy, but feels so good when it's done.

Whew, but vacuuming makes me sweaty. Ew.

Current Mood: productive productive

standing up is not sitting down

Standing up to check your email is okay; I find that inertia truly grabs you when you sit down. It's easy to get back to cleaning while standing up.

Resolve is good

Little Bissell spray-vac things are better. At least, for pet messy things.

Re: Resolve is good

Some things, yeah. Other things that you don't notice until they've turned color, nope :)

Besides, I don't need YAEPV.

(yet another electric powered vacuum)

Mm, yeah, you have a point there.

I have two Dustbusters. One works. :)

Acronyms good!

My personal policy regarding cleaning and laundry is to never attempt to do it 100% sober.

I make lists! And divide the tasks between my sister and myself. But I do sit down. Eek. I've found that dancing or listening to music TOTALLY help. :)
