How to make your home ‘fit for human habitation’
If you want to fit in with the other guests at the local hotel, you need to get some personal housekeeping, a new study has found.
Researchers found that as well as cleaning, it’s also important to keep house for yourself, or to do other household chores like putting up curtains or tidying up.

This is a problem because people who live in rooms, in a bed, or in a living room are less likely to get sunburned, said Dr. Julie G. Brown, a dermatologist at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.
It’s a challenge for homes with indoor plumbing, she said.
And indoor plumbing can become clogged with dirt, so that’s not ideal for people who are living outdoors.
Housekeeping is also a big problem for people with allergies, arthritis, diabetes, and other chronic health problems, Brown said.
When it comes to keeping house, you don’t need to be an expert at keeping it tidy.
You just need to know what to do, and the basic tools you need.
“If you can find the right tools and you can get a feel for what’s in your house, then you can make a really good home for yourself,” Brown said in a statement.
She recommends putting down a washcloth or a towel and making sure that it’s well-shampooed, then wiping it down with a paper towel and putting a toothbrush or scrub brush on it.
If you’re not comfortable with this, don’t do it, she advised.
She also suggested taking a shower once or twice a week to clean the house, because there are times when you can’t shower, and this helps keep your skin moist.
People with diabetes need to have their insulin doses checked periodically, Brown added.
And there’s no need to put a blanket over your head, as that can make your skin look dry and wrinkled.
If you’re living in a crowded living room, it can be difficult to get a good fit, but you can always take a chair to do the cleaning, Brown told FoxNews.com.
If your house doesn’t have a shower, you can use a bucket or tub of water and just do your washing with the water, Brown explained.
You can wash clothes by using a cloth, and then you just use the wash cloth to dry your clothes, and you don’ need to wash anything else, she added.
If there are no guests around, or if you’re uncomfortable, you might also want to take a bath or shower.
Brown also recommends putting on a mask if you are allergic to dust.
If the house has a fan, you could use a fan to blow the dust off your skin.
