But I feel like that even if I took everything out of the room and completely cleaned with all the harsh chemicals known to man that my house still wouldn't look as nice as a lot of other people's houses. Am I missing something? I understand "repainting" is a tool, but it really seems to be even beyond that. There just seems to be a steady decline to the dinge-death of the household.
Are there other things that I'm missing from my knowledge of house cleaning?
