Health Tip: House Cleaning With Arthritis

Health Tip: House Cleaning With Arthritis

01/06/12

(HealthDay News) -- Arthritis pain and stiffness can make it difficult to take care of household chores and cleaning.

The Arthritis Foundation offers these suggestions:

  • To avoid reaching high and bending low, attach your dust rag to an empty roll from gift wrapping paper.
  • Instead of using your hands, use a wooden pizza paddle to help tuck in your sheets while making a bed.
  • Also while making a bed, choose a smooth, lightweight comforter that you can easily slip over the sheets.
  • Put a pair of old socks or gloves on your hands to dust.
  • If your home has two stories, keep a vacuum cleaner and set of cleaning supplies on each floor.
