Mother’s Day Ideas: Doing Household Chores Will Make Mom Smile

by VitalStorm Content on May 3, 2018

Mother's Day ideas

Are you looking for the perfect gift for the Mom who has everything? All out of Mother’s Day ideas? Instead of flowers that will wilt, a balloon that will droop, or a stuffed animal she doesn’t need, give your mom a gift she can really appreciate: manual labor.

If your mom comes home to a clean house and a table set with dinner or dessert, it will warm her heart faster than the Hallmark card you just signed. At Blue Flame, we love and support moms everywhere! Here is a whole step-by-step list of Mother’s Day ideas that your mom is guaranteed to love (because they are chores she hates to do).

Step 1: Vacuum. Everywhere.

We are talking the floors – all over every square foot of the house, and using the suction nozzle on the furniture. Not only will everything look fresh and clean, it will also remove dust and other airborne pollutants from your indoor air. Bonus points if your mom has allergies: she will breathe in a (clean) sigh of relief!

Step 2: Dust the furniture.

This takes the least amount of time and effort, and maximizes the “clean” look in your house. If you run around with a feather duster for a few minutes, you mom can put her feet up when she gets home.

Step 3: Clean the toilets.

It’s not a fun job, but somebody has to do it. Don’t let that person be your mom this Mother’s Day.

Step 4: Clean the showers and tubs.

Use some Scrubbing Bubbles and elbow grease and make those showers shine. While you’re at it, check for mold or mildew built up in the nooks and crannies of the bathroom. Mold can aggravate allergies when it comes into contact with your indoor air. Make sure to eliminate all of that “yuckiness” so that your mom can enjoy a relaxing shower or bubble bath at the end of her day.

Step 5: Change your air filter.

Supermoms are not the only ones who can remember to change the air filter regularly. You can do it too! If your family often forgets to switch out your filter every 30-90 days, here are some easy tricks to help you remember.

Step 6: Clear away clutter.

Remember those piles of laundry and random junk mail you moved out of the way while dusting and vacuuming? You’re not off the hook for that yet. Throw away trash, put laundry in a hamper, hang up close, and stow miscellaneous items in a basket or two.

Step 7: Make some dinner or dessert.

Whip up something homemade and delicious and have it waiting for your mom when she comes home. (OR if you lack the culinary skills, get her a cake or another favorite dessert.)

Step 8: Surprise your mom with the best Mother’s Day weekend ever.
