Take a five while you are cleaning to recharge your batteries and refill your gas tank. Enjoy a nice fruit dish, kick your feet up, and pick a sweet cleaning day playlist of your favorite jams. The most important thing is to maintain a positive attitude during your cleaning day so the experience is enjoyable.
