Cleaning the house has never been one of my favourite activities. Pre-baby, I was never one of those OCD clean freaks that needed a spotless house everyday, I was more like a vacuum-a-week kinda girl.
Since becoming a mum, my priorities have changed, and my OCD with cleaning has kicked in. Having a one-year-old means the state of our home is never in perfect condition. The amount of food droppage and mess from various baby activities throughout the day is insanely high. I can’t tell you how crazy and chaotic our place can get. So I’ve had to up the ante with vacuuming on a daily basis.
Clean surfaces are one thing – there’s also clean air to consider. Have you ever cleaned your whole house, then emptied the bag and have dust go everywhere to the point that you can’t breathe properly, and you need to take a Telfast to clear out your sinuses? I remember one occasion I actually got full blown sick with a cold after doing this nasty job (don’t judge me, but I was since getting my husband to do it). Living in a fairly compact sized apartment, I’d rather not be adding dust and impurities to the air we’re all breathing. Sako is picking up enough little surprises at daycare as it is.
The answer to my prayers is this incredible Miele vacuum I recently started using. Its called the Blizzard CX1, and its basically a super-hygienic bagless vacuum cleaner. The dust particles go through the machine without recirculating, meaning the vacuum can be opened hygienically. Yes, woohoo, clean air! Plus the air flow suction is super-fast and the cord is extra-long for people like me who like to do the whole level in one clean without replugging.
Naturally, I’m obsessed! We can all breathe easier, and guests can actually start dropping by again.
