We are entering the dog days of summer where it’s so hot and oppressive that you need an extra boost to get you motivated to take care of your routine cleaning chores. And that’s why we’re sharing this energizing playlist of some of our favorite songs to rock out to while wielding the dust rags and spritzing the Speed Cleaning™ Red Juice. So crank up your speakers and let the tunes wash over you while you take care of business… which leads us to our first song:
“Taking Care of Business” by Bachman-Turner Overdrive
This hit from the 1970s gets better with each passing decade. While you are efficiently working your way around the house, cleaning and tidying up, you are definitely taking care of business every way you can. We dare you to try listening to this without breaking into a bit of a dance.
“We Built This City” by Starship
Moving into the 1980s, this classic song will get you grooving while you wipe Speed Cleaning™ Blue Juice off your bathroom mirrors, giving you a clear reflection to lip synch to. Or if no one else is home, feel free to belt out the song at full volume.
“Bust a Move” by Young MC
This is a great song to dance to as you scrub away the scum that’s accumulated on your bathroom surfaces with Speed Cleaning™ Scum Bum. Bust a move and keep scrubbing!
“Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen
There is no better song to listen to while you’re dusting your home. Choose either Speed Cleaning™ Microfiber Dusting and Cleaning Cloths or the hand-washable Speed Cleaning™ Flexible Microfiber Duster and sing along. A word of caution—you may want to clap your hands at certain spots in the song, so be sure you’ve carefully pushed the dust from your tool onto the floor before you clap it back into the air.
Hey Ya! by Outkast
Once that dust is collected in your Speed Cleaning™ Flexible Microfiber Duster, you can take it outside and shake it like a Polaroid picture (or restrain yourself and tap it gently against your foot, letting the dust hit the ground where it will be vacuumed up later). Then continue dancing!
“Footloose” by Kenny Loggins
Kenny knows that you’ve been working so hard. Go ahead and cut loose, and show off your dance moves while you whip the Sh-Mop around your kitchen floor, cleaning up the Speed Cleaning™ Sh-Clean Floor Cleaner. Your floors will sparkle and you’ll hardly know that any time has passed as you dance along to this song.
“St. Elmo’s Fire (Man In Motion)” by John Parr
As soon as that drum beat starts, you are a man/woman in motion, whirling around the living room with your vacuum cleaner of choice. You’re trying to break free of all that dust, and only you can do what must be done! If you feel St. Elmo’s fire burning in your arm muscles, it might be time to take a break.
“Walking on Sunshine” — Katrina & the Waves
With all those clean floors underneath your feet, you’ll surely be walking on sunshine. Don’t it feel good?
“I’m A Believer” – The Monkees
Here’s another song to wind down to, celebrating your freshly cleaned house. You saw your home’s clean face and now you’re a believer!
That’s it! So what about you? What are your favorite tunes to groove to? Let us know in the comments.
