Professional cleaner reveals how to clean your house if you have depression or ADHD

A professional cleaner has revealed how to clean your house easily if you have depression or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Kacie from The Big Clean Co in Melbourne shared two videos on social media outlining the easy tips that can make a huge difference to your house and mental health.

If you are struggling with depression, Kacie recommended picking up everything on the floor and putting it into a big basket to sort through later.

For ADHD, she suggested using two baskets and a bag to organise your small belongings (such as bathroom items) into three categories – items to donate, items to keep and items to throw away.

Both videos have been viewed thousands of times and were well received by social media users who praised the tips.

‘My whole organisational structure is putting random things in a bin and falsely promising that I’ll sort them out later,’ one woman wrote.

‘This is really helpful. Thank you for understanding the challenges people with depression face,’ another added.

A third wrote: ‘I needed this as I look around my house.’
