The key to blissful cleanliness boils down to communication: what, when, and how household tasks need to be carried out.
Couples who have a clear and respectful understanding of the parts of the housekeeping they are expected to perform spend less time negotiating or arguing over what should be trivial matters.
Tasks need to be clearly defined. To the detail, so there is no misunderstandings or disappointments over unfulfilled expectations.
Do it together. Use the time to appreciate what each does to keep the home.
