Cleaning videos on YouTube are my antidote to procrastination. When it’s time to clean, I pull out every excuse in the book. (I’m hungry. We need milk. My library books are due… to name a few.) I’ll do anything to avoid cleaning. But I finally found something that motivates me to get up and clean: YouTube videos.
I would never associate watching a YouTube video with motivation to “get up and go.” But when we visited my sister-in-law – a full-time teacher and mother of two young girls – and saw her spotless home, I had to ask, “How do you do it?”
It turns out, it’s not how she does it, it’s “How Jen Does It,” a YouTube channel that chronicles the daily cleaning routine of a Michigan-based wife and mother.
My sister-in-law explained that she watches Jen’s videos and feels motivated to clean. So when I got home, I tried it. And, to my husband’s surprised, it worked. Now I’m hooked on watching cleaning videos on YouTube when I need motivation to get going with my cleaning routine.
This works so well for me that I want to share the 3 most motivating cleaning videos with you.
Watching motivating cleaning videos on YouTube is my new favorite way to clean my home but once the nitty-gritty work is done, I like to keep my home clean for as long as possible. This is why we are a shoe-free home. And beyond our no-shoe policy, we’ve made it a habit to wear fresh slippers. Wearing plush, cozy slippers - and switching them out often - helps keep our home clean and comfortable.
It took a long time to find slippers that we could wear every day, throughout every season. After a yearlong search turned up empty, my husband and I had slippers made to our somewhat picky specifications. Now, we wear plush slippers that are lightweight and easy to slip on and off. Best of all, they’re affordable which allows us to switch them out often.
Have you tried our slippers yet? Sidney from New York says they are, “…like fancy hotel slippers but comfier.” You can order a pair for yourself below. And, if you already know you love our slippers, order a monthly or bi-weekly subscription so you can switch your slippers out often and keep a clean home.
