Try the ‘Five Things’ Method When You’re Overwhelmed by Mess | Life Hacker

Must Read

Davis has 1.5 million followers on TikTok, where she expands on her concept of Struggle Care and advises on cleaning without becoming overwhelmed while discussing mental health issues and sharing household hacks.

The “5 Things” cleaning method, popularized by a licensed professional therapist and CleanTok influencer KC Davis, involves focusing on just five categories of things while cleaning: trash, laundry, dishes, things that have a place, and things that don’t have a place. By breaking down any mess into these categories, cleaning can feel less overwhelming. The process involves going through each category one at a time, starting with trash, then laundry, dishes, things that have a place, and finally things that don’t have a place. The method allows for some imperfection and can be done over the course of several days if needed. Davis emphasizes that being untidy is not a moral failing and that the method can help make a space more livable. Once it’s livable, a more thorough cleaning can be done.
