It's a tradition in the family to holler this after retreating children to make them pick up their dishes to take back to the kitchen, I've just tried to make it work more for me.Somehow, I don't know how, I have the bathroom tasks down this way. I always wipe the basin, counters and shower down when I have a shower. Each time I visit for a ... (well I'll spare you the detials, you can guess) I'll either wipe the seat, clean the bowl or dust the lid. Takes less time to do than it does to talk about. The only part of the bathroom I don't have sorted is cleaning the floor, though I have taken to shimmying across the floor on the towel I'm about to toss in the laundry which at least takes care of the dust, if not actually cleaning.I really want to implement similar strategies about the house, the kitchen and the living room could really really do with a system.
