It does sound clean and fresh - and mentally restful - to have everything perfect. A part of me yearns for that.

Nope, that is too much for one day. I like to break it over the week!

I'd like to clean all the time, but if I do, when will I write? And garden? And cook? And spend time with my family and friends?

My MIL devoted her life to cleaning and my husband does not have good memories of her impossible standards.

Ok, let me make a deal with you. You come clean for me and I will do the other stuff for you(lol). I HATE to clean but my mom was like your MIL and like your husband try to forget that "trauma" from the past. I guess that is why I am the total opposite = clean as needed, not as a routine.

I see it the same way. If i�m cleaning all the time then i don�t have time for life, and life can be short, we need to enjoy it while we can.

I completely agree that obsessing about a clean house all day long is probably not a good use of time.

On the other hand, many studies show that people tend to be more relaxed and content when their home is clean *to a certain degree*. They also save a ton of time because now they can find what they need to find. Their health also improves.

So the key is not to clean obsessively smile However, there is a way to clean efficiently so you spend a minimum of time and keep your serenity, health, and time usage as top notch as possible!

That's of course a prime topic for our cleaning forum area, on how to do that smile
