My friend tries to make housework sexier by doing it in stilettos, but I still find it a chore
A friend of mine recently told me she cleans her home in stilettos. She says that, paired with 90s pop music, it transforms arduous tasks into almost sexy ones – an irresistible opportunity to strut, sashay and use a broom like a mic. I tried this, but I’m not used to being tall in my kitchen, so my “living la vida loca” quickly descended into “living la vida lockdown,” – smashing my head into the corners of cupboards I had forgotten were open.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been asking around for cleaning shortcuts. In lockdown, without distraction from the outside world, it’s felt never-ending.
