Thanks to the coronavirus, people are more concerned than ever about staying clean and cleaning their homes. On the plus side, it seems that everyone is waking up about the importance of keeping their homes clean, right? There are so many germs on every surface imaginable whether it is somewhere like the grocery store or even your own home.
What is your cleaning style based on your Enneagram type?
Wearing gloves at grocery stores is a sure way to keep the germs there away from you as long as you take them off correctly. However, you don’t need to wear gloves in your house when you touch surfaces unless you are cleaning. You have your own way of cleaning. How do you clean your home? That depends on your Enneagram type. Let’s go over that now.
Type 1 – The Reformer
Cleanliness is highly important to you so that means you’ll use any strong but safe cleaning product on all surfaces. You will make sure every crack and crevice is tackles as you will work to the bone to make sure the home is cleaned perfectly.
Type 2 – The Helper
You care about the health of others and this means you never want your family to inhale any fumes. You will only stick to cleaning products that are safe and will not leave any toxic fumes behind. You will even want to clean other people’s houses but that cannot be done right now. Going to other people’s houses is a no-no.
Type 3 – The Achiever
Like the Reformer, you will make sure your home is spotless as you are going to stick to the most powerful cleaners to make it that way. Then after you clean your home, you will showcase it because you will need to show your social media connections how spotless your home is. It needs to be seen.
Type 4 – The Individualist
Only alternative cleaning products that involve essential oils and other herbs will be considered for cleaning. You will never use any commercial brand that everyone else uses. You cannot be like everyone else even when it comes to hygiene.
Type 5 – The Observer
Research will be done on the best type of cleaning product and what areas of the home need cleaning the most. Then the best cleaning products will be purchased, and the areas of the home such as the kitchen, laundry room, and bathroom will be cleaned first.
Type 6 – The Loyal Cynic
You will clean the same way as the Reformer but not because of wanting to achieve perfection. You want to make sure that your home is clean enough for safety reasons. Any unclean area can be risky to be in, even in your own home.
Type 7 – The Enthusiast
The home has to be cleaned but that is never a priority. You will give your home a superficial scrub with a good quality cleaner and then you’ll be back to doing something fun and exciting.
Type 8 – The Challenger
The strongest cleaning solution is the only option and that means the dirtiest areas of the home which are the bathrooms, kitchen, and laundry room will get a good scrubbing that will leave them squeaky clean. You demand that the house is clean so you will not hesitate to give others living in the home cleaning tasks to make it that way.
Type 9 – The Peacemaker
A superficial clean of the counters and floors will do, and then it is time to go lay down and watch more Netflix and indulge in a few delectable cookies.
