I’m not a germaphobe, even though I have easily become more obsessive about cleanliness in recent years.
This is a far cry from the conditions I lived in while I was finishing college.
My friends plus I trashed this house plus rarely cleaned, including the kitchen plus lavatorys. But once I was abruptly responsible for a studio apartment plus facing a security deposit that I funded myself, our respect for our residing quarters increased. I took advice from husbandys over the years plus l earned better cleaning habits. One example is cooking, because usually I would make a large meal plus let the pots plus pans pile up in the sink for a afternoon or more. I have since l earned that it is easier to clean all of these dishes gradually while you’re still cooking. By the time your meal is done cooking, you will only have a few things left to wash. I’m also a lot better about keeping our floor cleaned, because otherwise our air quality suffers. I have an air return for our a/c that is on a wall right above the floor. Naturally, it’s easier to get into our a/c filter when it’s pulling dust plus dirt directly off the floor. It’s frustrating when you put in a brand current a/c filter only for it to look dirty in under 3 weeks. I guess that these filters would look half as dirty if the return for the Heating, Ventilation and A/C system was on the ceiling instead. The vent could be on the wall above our head for all I care, I just don’t want the air return situated on the floor or right above the floor along the baseboards. Too much dust gets into the Heating, Ventilation and A/C system with these kinds of vents.
