Vacuuming isn’t hard. But when you have a chronic condition that causes fatigue issues like I do, sometimes it falls by the wayside. There are other more pressing cleaning concerns (dishes, kitty box, cleaning the bird cage) that seem to take priority, and once those are done, I’ve tapped all my reserves. “The spoon theory” describes it best: when you have a chronic disease, you have to pick and choose.
We recently received a cast-off robot vacuum, and suddenly I always have clean floors. All I have to do is touch a button and it goes. Even at my tiredest, I can push a button. Sometimes I have to “guide” it, but most often not. It even gets most of the hard to reach places that would be missed in normal vacuuming (under the couch, bed, and bird cage).
These things are amazing, and if you are busy and have very little time, before you leave to go somewhere, push a button and let the little thing go. When you get home, you have clean floors, and you just have to put the little guy back in his home to charge and empty him.
Now if I could just find a machine to fold my clothes for me…
Anyone else find ways to make cleaning easier when you have a disability, robot-aided or not?
