Has your old parent reached the point of dependence when it comes to maintaining an orderly home? Have you been assuming the duties of a homemaker?
Breakthrough Healthcare Services is here to remind you of six homemaking mistakes you should avoid:
- Burning Ironed Clothes
Ironing and laundering clothes can be inclusions of the duties of a homemaker. Always have a presence of mind when you iron. Adjust the temperature right. Never leave the iron on top of a garment while turned on.
- Bleeding Clothes During Laundry
Clothes have a way of defining your parent’s appearance every day. Be careful not to ever distort their clothing by bleeding colors while laundering. Know the very clothes that can cause the bleed. Sort out the clothes by color so they don’t get mixed up in your washing machine.
- Breaking Fragile Objects
As a homemaker, it is highly significant that you are able to carefully handle and guard all things at home. This is even more necessary for things that are fragile. Examples would be mirrors, picture frames, home gadgets, plates, and cups. These are things you shouldn’t be breaking while cleaning them. So train your hands to be gentle whenever you get a hold of these things for cleaning.
- Scratching Furniture
Homemaking can sometimes require you to rearrange some furniture or do a little brushing to rid of accumulated germs. As you do these, be careful not to cause a scratch or any unlikely marks on any furniture. Preserve their appearance by keeping them unblemished.
- Changing Linens Seldom
Changing linens seldom makes bacteria and germs in them stay longer; hence, they remain close to you. Determine how frequent you should be changing linens. Consider your setting, or if your parent has a serious health condition. When you see stains on the linens, feel the urgency to have them changed right away.
- Leaving Cleaning Materials Dirty
Using the same cleaning materials over and over without getting them cleaned can only transmit bacteria from one object to another. Do not even use 1 sole rag for all your stuff at home.
Make it a point to dust off dusters and clean rags after using them. If you find it better to change your cloth that’s been used for surface wiping, have the discretion to do so.
