How to save time when cleaning

In the fast pace of modern life, you want to spend as little time as possible on cleaning, while keeping your home tidy. Experts say that there are several ways to save time and spend minimal effort.

One of the most common reasons for delaying the cleaning process is the improper use of a vacuum cleaner. Read about an interesting method called the "potato bed" in the OBOZ.UA article.

The "potato bed" method

When we start cleaning, we usually pull out a vacuum cleaner and start running it over a carpet or parquet surface. At the same time, we don't even think that there are life hacks to save time.

Most people use the vacuum cleaner "chaotically" - they move it back and forth around the room, and as a result, they have to brush the same place several times.

The situation can be remedied by using a method that is popularly called the "potato bed".

Imagine that the floor is a potato bed. Conditionally divide the surface into "rows" and vacuum each of them in turn. Don't pay attention to the coating. A "row" can include both carpet and parquet.

Thus, "walk" through all the rows in turn - so you will know exactly which places have already been vacuumed and which have not. This method will save you a lot of time, as you won't need to clean them again.

By the way, OBOZ.UA also talked about an interesting way of cleaning "20/10". It is unlikely to be suitable in emergency cases when you need to clean quickly, but it will come in handy if you have a day off ahead that you can devote to cleaning. Read more about the method in the article.
