Cleaning the House

Updated on February 23, 2012


Quentin Crisp once said that the dust in your house does not get any worse after 6 months. This led me to think of the advantages and disadvantages of NOT cleaning the house.



Advantages


You will have lots of time to do other much more enjoyable things.


You will have lots of new guests in your house like rats, mice, spiders and other insect life.


You will not be stressed or suffer from physical illness.




Disadvantages


You will get back strain from hoovering and dusting. You may even get electrocuted.


You will have blisters all over your hands and perhaps burns from cleaning products.


You will get respiratory ailments from all the dust you move around.


You will waste a huge amount of time you could be spending writing Hubs.



Therefore only clean the house when you can see where you have been – ie at three monthly intervals as a minimum – preferably more.



Ian.

      Hello

      Love the sentiment! however my husband doesn't. I wanted to finish writing my hub yesterday before doing the housework but my husband wanted to complete this first thing. So we did, and I had the rest of the day to finish the hub so it wasn't all bad. Your comment about Quentin Crisp made me smile as I remember the events I was involved in when Quentin gave the quote about housework.Happy times!

      Thanks for making me smile!

      Cleaning your house can be a superb way to impress people, while cleaning a vacationing neighbor's house can be an outstanding way to cover the fact that you've been living there.
