Household tasks you can do whilst the kettle is boiling

Being the busy bee that I am I always feel really guilty when I am just stood around particularly when the kettle is boiling.  I now always use this time to achieve something rather than just stand and wait. In reality maybe I should just try to chill for a few minutes but I just can’t do it…..

So below I have listed a few simple tasks you can do to pass the time productively when the kettle is boiling.All of these tasks can be easily achieved in 3/4 minutes.

Empty the dishwasher
Unload the washing machine and get ready for hanging.
Wipe over kitchen appliances
Declutter and tidy a drawer
Clean the kitchen window
Sort through your cleaning products
Hoover the kitchen floor
Empty the kitchen bin
Sort through a food cupboard
Plan your day
Post a picture on social media
Have a mini workout This can be a few star jumps, squats or lunges. Or grab your kettle bells.
Sort through your handbag
Text friends arrange a catch up
Washing up
Food preparation
Wipe over the fridge door
Quick floor mop or steam
Polish your shoes
Handwash an item of clothing
Hang out the washing
Tackle kitchen cobwebs
Catch up on some reading

If you have a few more ideas of what can be achieved than I would love for you to add them into the comments below. Don’t forget to take part in my 5 minute cleaning challenge this really does help you stay on top.
