Different people have very different thresholds when it comes to keeping our homes tidy, and one person’s “minor oversight” can be another’s “unforgivable squalor.” Personally, I can turn a blind eye to a sink full of dishes, but leaving for the day with my bed un-made gives me a bugs-under-the-skin feeling that lasts all day. On the flip side, I once had a roommate who was meticulous about washing his dishes the second he was done using them—a habit I have since tried and failed to cultivate.
We take spring cleaning very seriously at Lifehacker. Far be it from us to let an opportunity to refresh, reorganize, and declutter our homes lives pass us by. We’re also pretty psyched to hit the reset button on our tech usage, take a close look at our finances, and give the heave-ho to the day-to-day habits that have gotten a little musty. Welcome to Spring Cleaning Week, wherein we clear the cobwebs of winter and set the stage for sunny days ahead. Let’s clean things up, shall we?
So tell us: what little things around the house absolutely have to get done in your home, and which ones do you let slide? Do you sweep (or Roomba) at the end of every day? Wipe down the bathroom sink after every use? Dispatch with your dishes so quickly that soaking them is utterly unnecessary? Let us know in the comments.
