Many of us have found ourselves spending much more time at home over the past few months than we usually would. The coronavirus pandemic has seen governments around the world implementing different guidelines and policies largely revolving around one premise – that people should stay at home as much as possible. This involves working from home, having the kids off school and having them at home instead, avoiding social meet ups, avoiding having people over and generally doing everything you can to distance yourself from others who don’t live within the same property as you. Of course, there are more important things going on in the world right now than domestic neatness. But if you’re finding yourself cooped up behind the same walls day in and day out, chances are you’re going to want the environment to be as clean, comfortable and relaxing as possible. Unfortunately, many of us have simply found our homes becoming less and less presentable as time has passed. So, now it’s time to take control of your home. Here are a few activities you should carry out to get everything in ship shape once again!
