How to get a man to do housekeeping.

In most South Asian, men do not help their wives with housework, even though their wife works full time.
This thinking originates from the time, when women were house wives and did not use to work.
It makes sense, if a woman is at home all day to some extent.

However child raising can also be a full-time job and a woman needs her own space to relax and recharge.

It is mothers who are responsible for  this training to both genders. They train both genders getting their daughters to serve the sons. Your brother does not enter the kitchen. Get you brother a glass of water. These are small things, but common in ingraining that mindset.

What women are not human beings?

In addition to working and raising their children, house chores become a big headache.

Start by diving chores amongst all house hold residence including your children and parents in law.

How to get rid of curry smell in your house

How to get rid of curry smell in your house

Most South Asian households have a huge problem with the lingering smell of curry from when they cook.

Their clothes, hair and homes stink of Indian spices.

If you ever sit beside someone who regularly cooks with curry in a bus, plane or a train, the smell is often so offensive that you cannot take it.

How to get rid of curry smell in your house

  • A friend said don’t cook with curry
  • Go out and eat at a restaurant to fulfill your cravings
  • Close the bedroom doors
  • Open the windows while cooking and air out your house often
  • Wear clothes to cook in, that you will change after cooking
  • If you are not going to wash your hair, cover it
  • Burn incense, light scented candles or use air fresheners like Febreeze
  • Put a pot of hot water on the stove with coffee beans, cinnamon or vinegar while you are cooking
  • There are special, powerful exhaust fans that you can get and carbon air filters used by marijuana growers to eliminate the strong smell of the pot plants
  • Close the kitchen door, if possible
  • Avoid an open concept kitchen environment, when buying a house
  • Wear cologne or perfume, after cooking
  • Be cautious of the fact that your house or clothing may smell
  • Ask a close friend, if your clothes, hair or home smells
  • Close the door of your main floor closet where the jackets are hanging

In Indian cooking, the smell of onions frying is one of the most pungent smells. Try instead to fry a big batch of onions, and keep it in the fridge to limit the number of times you stink up the house with this smell.

We become so immune to the curry smell in our house, curry smell in our clothes and curry smell in our hair that we don’t even realize it.

Organizing

Organizing

Organizing is not a mysterious talent. It’s a completely learnable skill that you can become good at. Some people thrive on huge, dramatic change, some people prefer the slow and gradual route.

Do what’s right for you. It is a great feeling when you put something in its place and its there when you look for it.  Stop thinking of yourself as disorganized .

Sort through your clutter and an organized person will emerge. Getting organized doesn’t happen in your spare time. Make appointments with yourself to do the work.

Chaos can provide a sense of comfort, distraction and protection. Identify the hidden stakes you may have in clutter.

When assessing whether your space is organized or not, don’t ask how it looks. See how it functions.
