“Don’t wash your hair on New Year’s day, or you’ll wash away all your good luck! Don’t cut your nails. Don’t sweep the floor.” We’ve heard it all, and in the interest of keeping grandma happy, we’ll listen. But – that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to get around the dreaded CNY superstitions! Here’s what we’ve learnt.

Vacuum, not sweep
Drag out the vacuum cleaner if you’ve got a mess to clean up! Not only will your floors be clean and ready for welcoming guests, you’ll also be able to play at pretending to chase away New Year monsters with the vacuum’s loud rumbling. A win-win situation for all.
