That’s it lol. I washed all the dishes without letting them pile up and kept the counters clean. The rest of the apartment is still trashed but it’s progress. How did I do it? Idk what made me inspired to do the first deep clean but I maintained it when I was waiting for tea to boil or food to cook in the microwave. Instead of just standing there I would load the dishwasher and wipe down counters.
