But one thing we always did when we cleaned house once a week was this:
We raked our shag carpets!
This post dates me, I know. Yes, I grew up in the 70s. And yes, shag carpets were in! Every room in our house was covered in shag.
We owned a rake – and I’m assuming it was specially made for carpet raking, because it was not as sturdy as our outdoor rakes.
We picked up the house.
We dusted every piece of furniture.
We vacuumed in every room.
And then we raked.
Every tiny piece of shag was raked to perfection in our home!
Raking was actually my favorite housecleaning job – because I saw an instant change!
What was your favorite household chore growing up?
