The cleaners came to the house today. They’ve made it so I don’t feel so anxious touching the things in the house. The feeling of such dirtiness has more or less gone. I’ll still need to wipe down a few things and see about washing the curtains to lessen the anxiety further, but things have improved a great deal.
It turned out in my grand house clearance, I missed a cupboard in the back porch. This is not good news.
