Chores are typically drudge work that people avoid because they take up too much time.
But there are small and easy chores you can do to get a nice boost in self-esteem and motivation. Take a look at these 8 chores that only take half a minute, or even less
Empty the Waste Basket
Tying up full garbage bags only takes ten seconds. Add a sprinkle of baking soda at the bottom to stop bad smells.
Make the Bathroom Mirror Shine
Make the mirror clean and sparkly using a microfiber cloth with some ammonia or vinegar.
Clean Your Smartphone
Put a few drops of water on a microfiber cloth and wipe your mobile phone’s display clean.
Take Care of Your Pets
Clean your cat’s litter with a scooper and small plastic bag. For dog owners, give your pet’s water bowl a quick clean and refill.
Wipe Down Kitchen Surfaces
All you’ll need is a clean microfiber cloth and a household cleaner. Make sure to wipe the following:
- Drawer handles and cabinet knobs
- Kitchen cabinet fronts
- Microwave handle and door
- Knobs and faucets
- Refrigerator handle
- Kitchen countertop
Take out the vacuum and give the foyer, side doors and mudrooms a good cleaning. Stop dirt, grime and dried mud from getting further in as little as five minutes a day.
Run Through Junk Mail
Junk mail has a tendency to creep up on you and become a monster pile, but all it takes is five minutes max to get them sorted out. Don’t ignore them- give a quick once-over and dump the spam ones straight to the trash bin.
Clean Your Shower Walls
Use a squeegee for better efficiency. Ideally, this should be done after every bath, but a minute here and there can prevent soap scum buildup and make your bathroom look nicer.
