The Ultimate Playlist Para Limpiar la Casa
Part of the Latinx experience is waking up on Saturday morning to the sound of loud rancheras and sad baladas, which always means it's time to help Mom clean the house. Once I lived alone, I started playing that same music ironically, but the joke was on me: every time I heard it, I would feel drawn to the escoba and ready to clean as I put on a show with my broomstick microphone.
Depending on your household, you'd add some cumbias and bachatas to the mix, furthering the theme of desamor and despecho, which for some reason makes you scrub that toilet even harder. Since cleaning is one of the things I've been doing the most during this period of social distancing — seriously, how many dishes can a single person accumulate throughout the day? — I've been amping up the nostalgia and making la limpieza a whole experience with the limpieza playlist to end all limpieza playlists.
