When it comes to doing chores, we all have that one responsibility that gets “accidentally” pushed back until the next week, and the next week, and well, if you really had a say in it, it would probably never get done.
It turns out that people who can definitively say they have a least favorite household chore more likely to push off completing that task for as long as possible (duh). Whether it’s scrubbing dishes, doing laundry, mowing the lawn or cleaning the bathroom, leaving these tasks undone can get gross pretty quickly. Not to mention the build up of dirt, dust or weeds will encroach on your physical health and well-being (and if you’re like me, seeing the piles of mess will make you anxious and less productive).
Now I know it’s easier said than done to just “suck it up” and do it. But what has worked for me in the past is creating a reward system that lets you treat yourself after completing the “dirty work.” So find a way to spoil yourself, set a timer and get the job done. Believe me, nothing is better than crossing it off your to-do list.
Now luckily, if your least favorite chore is ironing, then I have the perfect solution. Recently, a co-worker was telling me how one Saturday afternoon she decided to clean out the closets in her house. She started the story by explaining how she threw out the ironing board and the iron… and that was it. She admitted to having a pile of clothes she liked but hasn’t worn in a while because she hates ironing that much. And believe me, the same thing happens in my house all the time!
What it is that makes this task so dreaded is uncertain, maybe it’s the mundane and repetitive motion of moving a hot metal plate against your wrinkled clothes reminding you of the imperfections in your life. Or maybe you simply don’t have the time or patience to wait for it to heat up and then perform the task over and over on shirts and pants that just don’t seem that worth it. Regardless, toss out your irons, the product below is about to make your life so.much.easier!
