Nifty Notion #3: Commercial Cleaning


So what is commercial cleaning I hear you ask? No, this does not involve hiring a maid.

Instead it is all to do with watching television. Yep! Watch TV and get the house clean. Or just a room. Or just the kitchen table. Whatever it is that really needs doing but right now, in this very moment, you simply do not have the necessary oomph required.

You will need:
1 messy room or task that you really can’t be bothered dealing with
1 television
1 good program that you enjoy watching

How to:
  1. Turn on the telly (did I mention how easy this would be?).
  2. Relax and enjoy the (first) segment of your program.
  3. As soon as an advertisement appears, get up and get as much done as you can before you hear/see your show return.
  4. Repeat steps 2 - 3 until either the program finishes or your task is complete, whichever comes first.

Easy peasy!

I have found that because of the short, and somewhat undefined, length of time to ‘go for it’ more actually seems to get done than otherwise. It’s like you’re racing the ads; more of a game than cleaning (such a dirty word). Before you know it, you have achieved something and rediscovered that long lost end of the dining table or arm chair. Heck, I have even hung the washing this way!

Warning: If you are anything like me, you will find yourself making such profound statements as, ‘This is an ad! Get moving Lizzy!’


  1. lol. This was funny , yet makes sense! You are right cleaning is such a dirty word haha. Sometimes I can get motivated to clean and have fun doing it if I have the right music on. Mostly I have to light a fire under myself to get going though . Thanks for making me smile :) I think these nifty notions are brilliant!
