I’ve become a bit of a clean freak while being at home – which is really hard as I have two teenage boys. Have you become more or less obsessed with cleaning your home since Coronavirus hit?

  • No, surprisingly I haven’t. I am a clean freak so maybe I feel I’m already protecting my home

  • Cleaning is great, but dont let it become a obsession, maybe you need to hang out with your kids or excerise , and make sure you have a few hours a day for your mental health, I think we need to be kid to ourselves at this time. xx

  • Yes! I’m obsessed with the floors and tidying. I’ve never liked the place untidy but now it’s worse!

  • Im trying not to be any different than I was before. Just washing hands more

  • I keep pretty much the same routine. But I mop the floor daily whereas I used to skip this every now and then when in a hurry.

  • Yes to some degree. The disinfectant is coming out much more.

  • No, not really. Probably more obsessed with trying to downsize all our crap!!

  • My routine hasn’t changed all that much as I hardly ever leave the house. I do find myself doing the washing a lot more often though

  • I must admit I seem to be wiping down benchtops and door handles etc. very frequently with disinfectant. Don’t put a cup down, I’ll wipe under it!! And I’ve been washing and sanitizing my hands more than normal after touching anything, then re-wiping. So yes… a little bit more!!

  • We do more cooking with kids.Other than everything the same.

  • Nothing has really changed in our household – we don’t have children with us to make the place dirty and no longer have pets. These days we longer have visitors either!

  • We are using more dishes as we have 4 of us at home but we are going outside more and I’m not so worried about the house.

  • Since there is more time at home, I am cleaning, gardening and cooking from scratch more.

  • We have added extra cleaning at this time for particular areas, simply because we have the time and it is an opportunity to get it done!

  • No difference at my place but i was cleaning freak before….
