Welcome to a sponsored post from Air Wick.
It’s a funny thing that happens to me in Winter, I forget to shave my legs, my toenails suffer from serious neglect and my body becomes scaly from lack of moisturizer. But my house? It tends to get a little more care.
There is a simple explanation for this maintenance imbalance and it’s this – in Winter I like to be home and when I am at home I notice every little thing about my house, every little piece of grime that has built up in the oven; every piece of silver that now looks black; every smell that emanates from well, everywhere; every curtain hem that needs washing; every skirting board that needs dusting.
There is a slight disadvantage to all this heightened sensitivity to “imperfection” because as winter takes hold all I want to do is settle on to the couch with a very soft blanket and a cup of tea. Hard to relax when you are aware of all that stuff that needs doing. But harder for me to just sit there knowing that it needs to be done.
Enter the household trick. You know those tips and tricks that make your life easier ? Those little shortcuts that allow you to feel proud of your home should someone drop in to share your tea?
