    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 agree. I have severe scoliosis as I lean to the right a lot, and it takes me two hours to change out the sheets on the bed, and putting fresh ones on. Even when I'm on the bed which is a queen-size. Even carrying them out to the garage where my washer and dryer is, in my wheelchair, is a workout in itself too.

    @chick....i think mopping sitting down is a skill, fully-functioning hands or no! mopping, then backing up, and over again....trying not to make marks on the floor...

    guess we'll have to disagree on this one, lady.
