If you have a clean house, chances are, you’ve also got a fit body, according to new research by physical activity expert NiCole Keith at Indiana University.
Keith’s team looked at the relationship between physical activity levels in urban African American adults and a range of factors in their residential environments — including the condition of streets, sidewalks, traffic noise and air quality outside. But these factors, which past studies have shown influence how much people get out and walk for exercise or recreation, had no bearing on behavior in the current study participants.
Rather, it was the neatness inside their homes that made the difference — the better-kept the home, the more exercise residents got. “At the end of the day, the interior condition of their house seemed to be the only thing affecting their physical activity,” said Keith, an associate professor of physical education at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, in a statement. “It was not at all what we expected.”

Below is a sampling of recent reviews from among the 300+ satisfied customers of our firm:
Thorough and reliable, I have been very pleased ever since I started using Happy Wife Happy Life. In addition to doing the basics of cleaning, they will always ask to see if there are any special tasks that need to be done, such as washing sheets, folding laundry, etc. I also appreciate the initiative they take. Example: the last time they came over, they cleaned out the inside of my microwave and refrigerator. Even though I had not specified doing these, they did so anyway, which was much appreciated. I will keep using them for all my house cleaning! James M. - Meridian, ID on Yelp

“The Alliance for Healthy Homes cites several factors that trigger asthma, allergies, and respiratory illness in vulnerable people. These triggers include dust mites, cockroach waste, cigarette smoke, pet dander, and mold. They cling to and burrow in carpets, upholstered furniture, and curtains. Tidy house-keeping including vacuuming, washing curtains, shampooing carpets, and using upholstery cleaners can significantly reduce this daily health threat. Having your home treated for mold and infestations of pests also reduces threats to your health. Having your home inspected and treated, keeping it clean, and in good repair also helps to keep away rodents and other pests, also linked triggering asthma in sensitive individuals. So seal up cracks and holes in the foundation, ceilings, and walls as well.”

The art of housecleaning has been all but lost. Until now.
Jan Dougherty has owned a residential cleaning company for six years and has come to the conclusion that the art of housecleaning has all but been lost. “I believe I may be the only survivor who knows how to clean and therefore I have a duty and responsibility to pass on my wisdom (and share the pain) before it’s too late. Most people don’t like cleaning their house because they simply don’t know how.”
Jan will show you that with three inexpensive products and a few tools how you too can clean your house and everything in it.
She will explain “The PATH”, which is a method to get in, get it clean and get out of a room. Whether you’re doing maintenance cleaning or deep cleaning; “The PATH” is always the same.
Her style is funny and entertaining. So even if you don’t want to clean your house you’ll have a good laugh.
This is not a book of helpful hints. There are enough books out there that will explain how to clean puke or coffee or puked up coffee. This is a book on how to clean the house and everything in it. After you’ve finished cleaning a room it will sparkle, after you’ve finished cleaning the whole house the shine will be seen from the space station.
Moms send copies to your children, if they read it you may not have to spend your next visit cleaning, like you always do. Kids send a copy to your mom, maybe on her next visit she’ll get more done before she leaves.
Read The Lost Art of House Cleaning: A Clean House is a Happy Home for entertainment! Read it for inspiration! Read it because it really solves the mystery of “How to clean”.
“Follow me my child and I will show you The PATH”. Jan Dougherty “The Head Rag Dragger”

Brillo pads are fabulous for scrubbing out stainless steel sinks and chrome fixtures. Just wet an area to be cleaned, scrub and rinse. Bonus tip: rub hands on clean stainless steel to remove obnoxious smells from hands, such as fish, onion and garlic.
