The idea is not to spend all your time cleaning. The idea is to clean efficiently, to clean well, and to only clean the things that need it. We all know or have heard about people who are so obsessed with cleaning that that is just about the only thing they do. The fact is that maintaining a home does require a lot of work. It can consume your life if you let it. Outwitting housework means being in control of your house, as opposed to your housework controlling you.
Thank goodness for Outwitting Housework. It's full of practical tips, like why Monday is the best day to clean the floors, and Saturday the best day to do the children's rooms. It explains why changing the lighting can make as much difference as reducing clutter, and it will help frazzled homemakers organize their cleaning for maximum efficiency. Rosenberg explains how mastering housework is a process, an overhaul of the way one approaches the care and maintenance of a home. Along those same lines, she points out that keeping your home neat can offer gratification that goes beyond the obvious-it can buoy the spirit and clear the mind.
