Top 3 excuses for getting out of the house cleaning
Category: House Cleaners
Whether we use them to convince ourselves that leaving dirty dishes in the sink is OK, or we utter them to our partners in the hope that they will take up the slack, we're all guilty at one time or another of creating justifications for what really amounts to a lack of motivation.
You're better at it than me
This one is often used to persuade someone else in the house to do the ironing, the vacuuming or the washing up for us, and it's a really sneaky one.
In fact, many of us have even done a bad job of the chores on purpose so that our other half or our housemate will quit asking us and just do it themselves.
I like my home to look lived in
There's a big difference between a home that looks 'lived in' and one that's dirty and untidy. Lived in implies that there are a few items out of place here and there or a couple of pairs of shoes in the hallway. It implies that your abode does not resemble a characterless show home.
It does not imply that your surfaces will be an inch-thick with dust, that your kitchen worktops will be a health hazard and that your dirty laundry basket will be so full you have nothing clean to wear.
It's what we pay the cleaner to do
This is actually a pretty reasonable excuse if you pay for domestic cleaning services once a week. However, it doesn't mean you can be completely lax about everyday housework.
For example, you should still wipe down your kitchen surfaces every day, and you should make sure to keep things as tidy as you can so that when the cleaners do come in they can do their job quickly and efficiently.
