Thread: Vacuuming, mopping & other chores from a wc

    Vacuuming, mopping & other chores from a wc

    Not easy, yet not completely impossible, as these three videos prove! (nope, still can't get out of chores lol)

    - Watch a sexy Euro paraplegic's (fasteddy) 9 minute how-to video on how he cleans everything, including buying a extender handle for his squeegee to still clean his mirrors.

    - A para mopping his floors backwards

    - And another para vacuuming with a cord. Not easy!

    I just switched to a cordless stick vac. It is a game changer.

    Before this I insisted on on using a real vacuum cleaner with a cord and all.

    The right tool changes everything!

    What's the big whoop 'bout a para cleaning? It's like watching a para brushing his teeth.

    Show me a c5 mopping the floor.... now then I'll be impressed and might actually learn something!

    Free roaming rabbits and carpet? Ewwwwwwwwwww! And I wish they sold those commercial reachers in the US. In Italy many stores are small so those suckers can grab a wine bottle off a shelf 20 feet up.

    Fixing the bed.

    Changing the bedding and fixing the bed with fitted sheets is a workout in itself!

    i cant sweep sitting or standing, but I can vacuum and mop from the chair just fine. a mop with some kind of wringer helps, but if you can lean over without falling out of your chair, and your arms and shoulders work, mopping and vacuuming is possible. I use a deck broom to scrub my tub and shower, and sometimes to sweep. I use it push broom style, both from my chair or using my chair as a walker.

    I like the swifter mop, but I use cloth terry shop cloths, and wash them. the swifter mop is light, inexpensive, swivels, and can be used on walls, and shower, or even windows, by putting paper towel in the swifter mop, and wetting the paper towel with windex or vinegar. I can reach most of my apartment from my chair with a swifter mop.

    ....at least until I got the p.o.t.s my place suffers now that I got the p.o.t.s.
    I looked at my swifter mop and imagined mopping my floors, but that made me tired, so swifter sits.
