Cleaning your house all by yourself could be very difficult and tiresome. Below are few quick and efficient tips to ease your huge task and make it fun:
Plan Your Cleaning MissionPlan well ahead, like 5 – 7 days before Ganesha Chaturthi to clean your house. Having a clean and decorated house will sure set in the mood of festivity. Planning your cleaning mission beforehand will avoid last minute hassles and overload.
Set up Your Mind: After your long hours at office, coming back home and sticking to your cleaning schedule could be tiring. Set your mind to complete the cleaning process, one room at a time.
Don’t Get Struck with a Single Room: Sometimes, we may lose track on time and focus on spending more time to clean one place. Don’t waste time on just a single room.
Stick To Your Deadlines: Fix one room as a deadline for a day. If you have started with your living room, then it covers everything from cleaning and wiping your floors to changing curtains, dusting the sofas and TV area. When you have a deadline, you will tend to be working towards completing it on time.
Divide Your Duties: Engage everyone in your house in cleaning your house for Ganesha Chaturthi. Allot work for everyone and prepare a task list, so that you can tick it once it is done.
Cleaning Toilets are Important Too – You will have friends and relatives coming to your house to share their wishes on Ganesha Chaturthi. So clean your toilet, cabinet, mirror and floor thoroughly. When you are done, don’t forget to hang a freshener to leave it fresh and good-smelling.
Have a Clean Cooking Area – Kitchen is where you will be preparing all the delicious dishes for Lord Ganesha to treat him on his birthday. Clean it spick and span including the cabinets, oven, floor and sink.
Decorate Your Pooja Area – Engage your family members to suggest creative ideas to decorate the Pooja area to welcome Lord Ganesha. Decorate the altar with lights, flowers and other decorative items to celebrate the birthday of Ganesha and receive his ongoing fortune and prosperity blessings.
