Flowers and chocolate are a classic and wonderful gift ideas for Mother’s Day,
but this year we suggest making Mother’s day a little more special. To show how
much you really appreciate everything mom does, we have some unique ideas that
will not only make an unforgettable Mother’s Day, but will keep on giving the
rest of the year!
Surprise your mom with something different by learning
how to help out with some of her most time consuming tasks. Once mom has less
chores to do she will have more time to unwind and spend quality time with the
entire family, which seems like the best gift of all!
A study conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan found out
that moms spend around 17 hours per week on housework, which equals is 884
hours per year! Add to that, 224 hours a year spent on washing and folding
clothes and another hour a day spent on meal preparation and clean up and you
can see how much time these chores can eat up (more than two months to be
exact). Give your mom a break this year by helping to lend a hand with the
Vacuuming can be a really easy way to make the house look great and
surprise mom this Mother’s day. To make sure you do it properly (so mom
doesn’t have to redo it!), check out this video or follow this step-by-step
guide for easy instructions.
Cleaning out the Refrigerator
Most people will agree having an organized and fresh smelling fridge is
something they appreciate – and moms would agree. Since it’s often a pretty
time-consuming task that involves a lot of bending over, this can be a great
way to give mom a break by doing it yourself.
To get started all you need is some vinegar and water (3 parts water to 1
part vinegar) or a kitchen safe sanitizer and just follow these steps:
Loading the Dishwasher
When supper’s over, don’t leave mom to clean up the kitchen by herself.
You can help clear the table, rinse the dishes and put any food items away.
One really great (and often overlooked!) way to help mom is to learn how to
properly load the dishwasher.
If you don’t load the dishwasher properly, it can cause dishes to not be
cleaned properly, require second cleanings and even ruin dishes by spotting
or breaking them. Mom will definitely appreciate the extra care when helping
her out after mealtime.
Using the Washer and Dryer
A family of four on average can go through 8 loads of laundry a week. That makes for a lot of washing, drying, folding and putting away. By learning how to properly sort, wash, dry and fold your own laundry, you can show mom you care every week! Laundry can also turn into a fun activity when you and mom sort and fold the clothes together!
Helping with the laundry is not a hard job since the washer and dryer do most of the work. Just follow these easy steps and you will have all of the laundry done and ready to wear by the end of the day.
