As you could probably tell from some of the other posts I have published on my blog, I love cleaning my home. I like a tidy working and living space because it helps me with my focus. However, something I have noticed over time is that I tend to get bored very easily if there is no music in the background while I take care of my cleaning chores.
The name of my blog should tell you something about the music genre that I prefer. Jazz has become less popular over the years, unfortunately, which is also the case for classic rock and other genres I’ve learned to love.
First of all, I should note that there are some services I use without having to pay a penny. One of them is YouTube, where I create playlists. The worst thing about YouTube these days is that it has a lot of ads. I’ve tried to find some means to get rid of them, and I discovered that there’s a Chrome extension called AdBlock. Ever since installing it, I can listen to dozens of songs without having to look at any ads.
Here is a playlist I have found for free, and I usually listen to when I am in a good mood and start cleaning the floors or windows. It has loads of songs from genres like jazz, soul, blues, and swing, so it makes me feel better about everything in my life.
Something else I used to love listening to was classic rock. I used to adore bands like Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and many others. I was into the whole flower power movement for a while when I was in high school, and since I listened to most of the artists who played at Woodstock for a number of years, I ended up having a habit. I start off with some songs by Led Zeppelin and Janis Joplin and then move on to more ‘modern’ music.
I also like a bit of variety when it comes to cleaning solutions, scents, and anything else I might use while cleaning my home. In terms of appliances, my budget is somewhat limited as I cannot afford to get a new one every couple of months or so. Cleaning solutions, however, are way more affordable by comparison.
Also, I usually take some time to research the topic online and come up with several DIY substances that I can make using vinegar, lemon, and loads of other things that I have in my house already.
I hope that this article was useful in some way and that I have at least given you some suggestions.
