Weekly Topic Inspiration: Cleaning

    Simone Smithposted 4 years ago

    I clean, you clean... we all clean! Even my friends who REFUSE to clean (or even find someone to clean for them) find themselves scrambling to straighten (say, when a date is coming over...).

    Seeing as cleaning is a somewhat universal activity, I thought we could all benefit from swapping our best cleaning tips and tricks! Whether you have the perfect solution to greasy smartphones or the ultimate plan for cleaning an entire bathroom in less than seven minutes, I want to read your advice.

    To improve your submissions for the week, I encourage you to:
    1. Include lots of original photos (do some cleaning this week, and document your progress!)
    2. Utilize numbered lists to give readers clear instructions
    3. Utilize Table Capsules to to share recommended fixes for specific problems and the like (they make for great reference points!)

    Don’t have a particular Hub in mind? Here are some search-friendly titles to consider using:
    Speed Cleaning for Busy Moms
    How to Outsource Maid Services to Younger Siblings
    Do You Need Maid Services? Tips on Making the Decision
    Common Maid Service Rates
    Cleaning Tricks Used by Maid Services
    Essential Home Cleaning Supplies
    The 5 Most Trustworthy Cleaning Companies
    House Cleaning Tips for College Students
    House Cleaning Tips for Single Bachelors
    House Cleaning Tips for Busy Parents
    House Cleaning Tips for Busy Professionals
    How to Start a Commercial Cleaning Business
    Housecleaning 101
    Boat Cleaning Basics
    How to Clean a Boat

    To create search-friendly titles of your own, follow the steps outlined in this Learning Center guide.

    If you'd like to join in on this week's topic by writing a Hub, follow these steps:

    1)    Stop by this week's Weekly Topic Inspiration Question.
    2)    Click the green button "answer this question".
    3)    Click the gray button below the box (leave that empty) that says "make a Hub about it."
    4)    Give your Hub a very specific title, like Easy Summer Gardening Projects for Kids or Challenging Summer Activities for Teens
    5)    Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before.
    6)    After you publish your Weekly Topic Inspiration Hub, come back to this forum thread and post a link to your Hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.

    For more information on the Weekly Topic Inspiration program, check out the Learning Center guide.

    To increase your Hubs odds of being chosen as a Hub of the Day, make sure the images are legally used and properly attributed!

    Did my mother tell you to pick this topic?  Or is there a camera on this computer that lets you see how my house looks?

    If I have to clean the house before writing the hub, I'm not sure how long it will take before I can write it.

    LOL

    One maid service hub, coming up!

    I clean cats!

    Here is my response on bathing a cat: http://kathleenkat.hubpages.com/hub/Bathing-Cats

    I'll add more photos *if* and *when* I have to endear this awful process again. Hopefully I will not have any more photos to add anytime soon wink

      Simone Smithposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Bathing a cat is no small feat. I can't tell you how much I adore this Hub! Three photos is pretty good all things considered- and I love the detail you've added into the Hub. What a thorough guide!

        Thanks! Getting good photos while bathing a cat is nearly impossible. I'm afraid to try.
