Doing the household chores can be a difficult thing to do. They seem to be forever piling up and taking too long a time to finish. Sometimes, it is psychological, but at other times, it is the lack of appropriate units that cause us to be reluctant to do the chores.
Filtering the water
The most burdensome chores in the house deal with water. Mopping the floor, washing laundry, doing the dishes, and cleaning the toilet use a significant amount of water. But chemicals in the water can make all the efforts useless.
The first culprit is chlorine. Unfiltered water contains a high degree of the chemical, which can damage clothes in long-term exposure. It ruins the elasticity and comfort of the clothes’ fabric. And no matter how pricey your wardrobe collection is, without proper water to clean them ,they will wear out pretty soon. What a waste of money and time, isn’t it?
The second culprit is calcium. If you have persistent whitish deposits on your plates, forks, mugs, or other utensils, it would be due to the high calcium in the water. They are not harmful to our health, but besides ruining the look of our appliances, calcium deposits can be damaging to plumbing pipes too.
The solution is simply by reducing the minerals content of the water. You should look for the best water softener. The device removes the ‘hard materials’ from the water so that it can be safer to your clothes and the plumbing pipes.
Choosing the right vacuum
Vacuuming must be part of your daily routine. Dust is mean, and it can trigger excruciating allergic reactions. Red eyes, nonstop sneezing, and coughing are all the examples. But they are often overlooked and thought to be mild cough symptoms. Nevertheless, it will affect a person’s productivity and life quality.
Yet the way to overcome the trouble is not that hard. You just need to buy the right vacuum cleaner. The first feature of a good vacuum cleaner is power. There are two types of a vacuum: the cylinder and the upright. In terms of power, the cylinder has less power than the upright but provides more flexibility.
Carpets are best cleaned with an upright vacuum, while stairs, walls and hard-to-reach areas are best cleaned with a cylinder. Therefore, it is better to have one for each type.
Installing sink spray
If you have a fixed sink tap only, you will be surprised how adding a sprayer will make doing dishes much easier and more quickly. If you doubt it, you can observe that restaurants always have one in their kitchen.
Prefer the metal hose than the rubber because the second tends to degrade faster than the first. But the metal hose only comes in one color and it is more expensive than the rubber. Therefore, before choosing between the two, you must consider your budget.
