I have a confession. I hate cleaning.
Well, that's not the confession - that's a well-known fact. I despise it. But I despise dirt and dust more. So I HAVE to clean. But I do love shortcuts. And this is my newest one:
I rarely vacuum my stairs.
There's not much carpet in our house but the stuff in the foyer and up the stairs is indoor/outdoor icky blue. It hides dirt well but not THAT well. And it's almost ALWAYS in need of a vacuum. But the stairs? No one spends time on the stairs - they are purely functional. The only one of us who sits on them is Dora...and she's the one who makes them dirty.
So I don't bother most of the time. And I'm certain she doesn't mind.
Got any cleaning shortcuts or confessions of your own?
