Five Spaces to Clean That Bring Joy to Others

There’s just something about all the clutter being put away and the dirt being washed away that is very powerful and makes all our troubles feel like they’ve gone away.

A clean space inspires happiness and joy.

This is especially true when someone has cleaned your space for you. It’s an intangible gift that doesn’t come with a bow or a box.

Here are five spaces you can clean for someone else that bring joy in all different kinds of ways.

Space #1 – Living-space:

Clean living rooms and family rooms create the urge to come and spend time together and even entertain. When tackling living-spaces, think both high and low. One idea is to get dust off blinds with a damp, delicate sponge like the Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge. See how easy it is with this fan de-fuzzer tip here.

    Space #2 – Kitchen:

    There’s nothing like cooking a fresh, healthy meal in a sparkling kitchen. Cooking doesn’t seem all that daunting when the counters have been scrubbed and appliances have been polished. Don’t forget the inside of the appliances too! A great way to get grime off is with the Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge.

    Space #3 – Bedroom:

    We all know that the bedroom is the epicentre of relaxation, it’s where you start and end your day. Getting clutter off the floor and furniture is an important part of keeping a bedroom clean. If you’re going to tidy up someone’s sleep space, try touching up bedding and other fabrics like chairs or pillows with the Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller, to remove any pet hair or dust.

Space #4 – Bathroom:

It might be the least enjoyable job of all, but the bathroom is an important space to keep clean. Bath time for kids, teeth brushing, and showers all become something to enjoy in a bathroom with clean floors, tubs and sinks.

Space #5 – Outdoor space:

There aren’t very many months in the year where we can get outside and enjoy our outdoor space in Canada. That’s why cleaning someone’s backyard or patio is so rewarding, because it turns lazy summer afternoons and hot summer nights, into something to enjoy outside with family and friends. If there’s patio furniture involved, use a Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Dishwand Refill to clean just like in this video. It can make all the difference!
