89 Times Things Have Been Absolutely Changed By Cleaning Them


There’s a part of us, deep down, that naturally feels amazing if we see a mess tidied up or something nasty being washed up. It is all because of our inherent ability to turn chaos into order. Right up there with unintended symmetry and fractals, and when things match up perfectly in a frame, there’s nothing other than the pressure wash that our perfectionist souls find really satisfying to watch.

The before & after photos of power washing projects are too satisfying to not to post, so we have gathered some of the best photos to make you go ‘umm’ and ‘oh fudge, yeah’ and think about what areas of your home or back yard need a good, long heavy, symmetrical scrub. (h&t: Akvile & Jonas)

Ralph Ryback, writing on Psychology Today ties our need for organization and cleanliness to the fact that our bodies are well-organized and well-regulated, even at the atomic level.

“It wouldn’t be surprising, then, if the reason we crave symmetry and cleanliness in our homes is to mirror the organization within our very own bodies. Neatness and order support health—and oppose chaos,” he explains.

Whether or not it is the case, tidiness and cleanliness are the basic aspects of becoming an adult. By keeping our homes neat, we’re maintaining our health, and we’re still staying fit while we’re on the move. It’s an integral part of a life of good quality. And the next time you’re ordered to remove the garbage, do it with a smile. Or tell your companion that you would happily swap chores with them if they let you wash the patio with power.

Maybe we don’t have a power washer at home, but guess who’s going to do the dishes with a smile on their face today?
