What do we say to the God of Cleaning?

October 19, 2012

In the TV series ‘Game of Thrones’, the character Syrio Forel who teaches Arya Stark the art of sword fighting, asks and then answers the question, ‘What do we say to the God of Death? Not today!’ So I decided to rephrase it. What do we say to the God of Cleaning? You already know the answer. I have been giving that answer to the God of Cleaning for days and still can’t get to cleaning. I think this is one of the times I have to use the services of Aceclean (the cleaning company I use in states of emergency which this is slowly turning into (I know it’s paradoxical but you get what I mean, right?)) I have been working overtime for the last week and the last thing I want to do when I go home is start cleaning. Sadly, I have other things to take care of. And what about rest? One has to rest, right? So, the God of Cleaning can wait. At the moment, the God of Work is far more important.

You have been in such a situation, haven’t you? Tight schedules, deadline approaching quickly, a peculiar rush you get from working hard and, of course, the exhaustion. In such circumstances the last thing one wants to do is clean. It has to be done, though, but thankfully – you don’t have to do it alone. I’m not usually one to let somebody else do what I have to do, but these conditions demand it, even though I don’t like. I am a really clean person and like having my flat clean but sometimes the job gets in the way. I know lots of people can sympathise with that and I know I am not the only one going through this. Still, I like sharing this sort of frustrations because cleaning is important to me. It’s like my hobby - it relaxes me. Cleaning is one of those boring and mundane activities you really feel relaxed from because they don’t make you think about anything in particular and they don’t require your full concentration and energy. Paradoxically, under these circumstances I don’t see cleaning in such a way. One would think it would be quite the opposite but for me at the moment, cleaning is more of a chore than a hobby. Hobbies require time and right now time is a deficit for me. So not only am I under a lot of stress at work, but I can’t relax the way I usually do. Does it sound too strange? I sometimes think there is something wrong with me. I hope I’m wrong about that. Anyway, that’s what all I have to share right now. I hope next time you read my blog, I will have something more cheerful for you.

 

What is the Best Cleaning Music?

October 17, 2012

As you’ve probably already noticed – I like cleaning. I’ve given you tips on how to do it, I’ve explained why I like it, and so the next subject I want to bring up will come as no surprise – cleaning music. What would be the best music to clean to? Certainly there can’t be a single answer. After all, everybody has different preferences when it comes to music. Although that is indeed the case, it is also true that different genres are more proper in certain contexts than others. ...

Cleaning of the Future

September 24, 2012
I am a fan of the Sci-Fi genre, so naturally I often think about the future in a nerdy way – how cool would it be if we lived in the 22nd century, for example, and what would life be? I think that in a hundred, a hundred and fifty years from now, all manual labour will be accomplished by robots. The technology will possibly make working in that way obsolete for human beings and we will have a lot more time to actually live – you know, do what we like (or rather find out what we like). If ...

'Cleanliness in next to fordliness'

September 18, 2012
Cleanliness is next to fordliness’ – is one of my favourite quotes from Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World.’  I find myself frequently using it when somebody makes a mess or is dirty. It is the second hypnopжdic lesson in elementary hygiene. In ‘Brave New World,’ everything is built on Ford’s assembly line principles – we have mass production (humans aren’t born, they’re produced and hypnopжdia is the way they are educated or programmed, if you will, in their sleep as...

Window Cleaning Tips

August 24, 2012

These tips are for cleaning actual windows. As for the operating system, I will probably lay down a few advices for that too, although it will be some time in the future. OK, here we go.

First of all, let’s start with something really annoying – stickers. They can be almost impossible to remove which makes them all the more annoying. If you ask different people, they will probably advertise different methods. I will tell you what works best for me. First, scrape as much of the sticke...

Getting Ink Out of a Carpet – Is It Possible? Yes it is!

August 17, 2012

Oh, the horror. One of the worst things happened to me last night. It was truly dreadful and horrendous. I almost destroyed my carpet. I am glad that the carpet cleaners managed to clean it because I like it – it fits my room perfectly.

 It’s my friend’s fault. If he hadn’t given me that inkstand I wouldn’t have gone through all of this. OK, it’s not his fault I’m clumsy, but still – it was so frustrating. Probably nothing I say right now makes any sense to you so I bett...

Clean the Dust Out Of Your PC Regularly

August 13, 2012
It doesn’t matter if you’re a hardcore gamer or just a casual PC user – the one thing everyone owning a PC suffers from is dust. Dust degrades your performance; it can get your processor to overheat (never a good thing) and other nasty things. If you want to be able to use your computer for as long as possible, as much as possible, you should clean it regularly, apply thermal paste on your processor, keep the unnecessary files to a minimum and some other useful things.

First thing you ha...

Why Do I Like Cleaning?

August 7, 2012
Interestingly enough, cleaning is fun for me. Most people don’t understand how or why, but I love cleaning – I like washing carpets, I like vacuuming, I like cleaning the windows and et cetera. I like the way everything shines after it’s been cleaned, the way everything looks like it’s fallen right into place. This is what I call magic. 

I don’t understand how people don’t like cleaning in pretty much the same way they don’t understand how I like it. Leaving something just like t...

Fridge Cleaning Tricks

July 20, 2012
Everybody knows that everybody else uses a fridge in his house, in his restaurant, even in his office. It’s something really needed in order to keep foods in good condition and preserve them from getting moldy and unsuitable for eating.
Yes, we are using the fridge every day, but how do we maintain it in order for it to work efficiently and do we make something to make it last longer? Probably not much. It contains your food inside so you have to keep its hygiene levels really high if you do...
