Our seemingly endless list of tasks often leaves us tired, stressed, and wishing we had more time (and energy) to do things we love and unwind however we wish.
What if you could get those chores done and over in much less time? May oras ka na rin para sa "me-time" mo and bonding with the family!
Roll up your sleeves and do the most ubos-oras household chores faster and with less effort by following this cheat sheet:
1. SOAK KITCHEN UTENSILS IN HOT WATER BEFORE WASHING.
This prevents food and cooking residue from forming and instead loosens up the leftover bits stuck on cookware. Makaka-save ka, hindi lang ng oras at effort, pati dishwashing soap! Plus, it will also help you avoid unnecessary scratches and damage to your pots and pans.
Isa pang tip: Start washing the least greasy items before pots and pans. Follow this order: glasses, spoons and forks, plates, and cooking pans.
2. LET YOUR TOILET-CLEANING PRODUCT SIT FOR AT LEAST HALF AN HOUR BEFORE SCRUBBING.
When cleaning the bathroom, the first step is to pour your cleaning product for the toilet into the bowl and leave it in for about 30 minutes. Nakakatulong ito para matanggal ang stains at buildup for easier scrubbing and brushing.
Para 'di sayang sa oras, clean the exterior of the bowl and scrub the walls, ceiling, and windows while waiting.
3. USE LINT ROLLERS AND SOCKS WHEN DUSTING.
For fabric surfaces like lampshades, sofas, or curtains, use a lint roller to catch the dust and prevent it from spreading in the air as you clean.
For walls, cabinets, and other surfaces, remember to always start from the top and work your way down. An old sock—yes, medyas—is useful when cleaning hard surfaces like tabletops.
4. HEAT A BOWL OF WATER WITH CALAMANSI JUICE INSIDE A MICROWAVE BEFORE CLEANUP.
After placing the bowl in the microwave, set the timer for a few minutes and let the water steam up the inside of the oven. When the timer goes off, remove the bowl (don’t forget to use kitchen mitts or potholders!), and wipe the inside clean using a cloth or paper napkins.
5. USE LIQUID DETERGENT TO MAKE LAUNDRY EASIER.
Breeze Liquid helps save you time and effort when doing the laundry. Just dip, dab, and wash to make laundry a breeze.
Hindi ka lang makaka-save ng oras by doing this single change in the way you do your laundry, makakatipid ka rin sa paggastos at magkakaroon ng time to spend with your loved ones.
