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
  • Apply your makeup
  • Put together a quick playlist

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.

Save cleaning time with the SP600 from Vorwerk

By now, you all know how much I love and use my Vorwerk Kobold VK200, it really has made my life easier and my house cleaner.

The SP600 was launched earlier this month by Vorwerk and it really is a game changer when it comes to cleaning.

The SP600 is a detachable head that fits with your Kobold VK200 that simultaneously mops and vacuums hard floors at the same time, halving the time you spend cleaning hard floors such as parquet, laminate, tiles and stone.

And YES, you can use this on all types of hard flooring.

The Kobold VK200 is a very stylish home cleaning system and its cutting-edge technology makes light work of my household chores now. To vacuum and mop at the same time is a genius idea and will save you so much time – I can vouch for it! I am constantly asked through my social media pages about how to manage cleaning when working full-time and living in a busy home… Well, this really is the answer!

Please do not be put off by the price of the system, see it as a long-term investment. A Kobold can last for an average of 17-25 years and if you sit and work out how many vacuums, mops and steamers you are likely to buy during the same time period, it makes perfect sense to buy a product that is built to last. It not only saves you time, but space too because there’s no more need for a mop and bucket or steamer.

Being tall, I suffer with a bad back so it’s really important for me to try not to bend too much. So, when I choose household cleaners, I always have to bear this in mind.

The controls at the top of the VK200 handle makes my life a whole lot easier. From these controls, you can also choose the level of water you require. The water is released at the easy press of a button and there is no need to be constantly pressing for more water.

LED lights will appear when you press for water too and if you have used too much and soaked the cloth, the lights will indicate this to warn you

The simple element of this cleaning system is that very little water and cleaning solution is required. I loved that I could clean my entire floor with just one tank of water. The SP600 holds 260ml of water (less than half a pint) and a tiny amount of Koboclean cleaning solution which is available direct from Vorwerk. Please click here KOBOCLEAN

The SP600 is also great as it tends to glide for you so there is no need to add any pressure and push it around the room, it just naturally flows as it vacuums and cleans your floor, and air dries within a few minutes.

The drying time is another great feature as there is nothing worse than saying to everyone in the house “Keep off the floors, they are wet!” I used to make my family stay upstairs whilst I found a safe, dry place to stand as the floors were drying. It wasn’t so bad in the summer when I had all the windows open, but in winter this was a massive pain for me and such a waste of time.

The SP600 comes with a moistening microfibre cloth which fits to the bottom and is released with the press of a button. The cloth then goes straight into the wash without fabric conditioner to keep the fibre strong. There are also different types of cloths depending on what type of flooring you have.

Another great feature is there is no need to turn the VK200 over or bend – like you have to with some machines – just to attach the cloth. You, very simply, place the cloth on the floor, put the SP600 on top and when you have finished cleaning, press with your foot to simply release the cloth ready for the wash and its next use.

If you are an avid cleaner like me you can also purchase additional cloths and you will always have one to hand.

If you want to save time with your cleaning and spend more time with your family then you need to Book a demo and see this for yourself.
