I’m sure you will agree with me when I say that technology has come a long way. The gadgets that we use nowadays, like the computer, mobile phones or digital cameras, are things that people can only envision decades ago. Even simple household items like vacuum cleaners or rice cookers were designed to make our like simpler but more productive. I guess we are just adapting to the kind of lifestyle that most of us have.
I do most of my work online and since I am home most of the time I make sure that I set aside time each day in cleaning the house. I am not a big fan of walis-tambo (broom), though. A walis-tambo is something that you would usually see around most households.
What makes me think twice about using it is that it doesn’t really get the job done. The dust just gets pushed around and it doesn’t really clean every nook and cranny of the house. And don’t even think about cleaning your carpet with a broom. You’ll just get frustrated, trust me.
Also, I remember when we were younger my mother would send my brother outside the house whenever she would sweep the floor. She was afraid that the dust will trigger an asthma attack for my brother. My mom told me that there’s germs in the dust and using a broom alone is impossible to totally rid of the germs.
Living in a condo unit with my husband has made me more doubtful about the efficiency of the broom. When I sweep the floor, the dust just gets transferred somewhere else around the house. Unlike when you use a vacuum, it will pick up any dirt while a broom will move around the dirt. I’d end up sweeping the floor again hence wasting more time than I had originally intended. Those wasted time should be the time for my family or do other things important to me and my husband.
I never thought a simple task such as sweeping the floor can turn out to be so bothersome. I need to have a more efficient cleaning tool.
