As a little girl one of my favorite things to do was watch cartoons on Saturdays. Saturday was the only day of the week that we had cartoons back in prehistoric times and if we wanted to watch undisturbed all morning long, we had to have our chores done before we sat down to watch them.
My mom was mean like that. She made sure we did the chore right too, if the job wasn't up to par, do it over. Yep, she was a meanie. Mom made us learn how to work...what a novel concept. Thanks Mom.
I loved my cartoons. I was always the first one up sweeping the carpet (yes, sweeping; we didn't have a vacuum) so I could have dibs on the TV and the cartoon we would watch first.
Saturday is still my get-everything-clean-first-before-doing-anything-else-day.
I've gotten pretty efficient at having the entire house ready for the week by noon. It helps that it's just Husband and me at home. How messy and dirty can a house get with just two people...one of which is seriously suffering from a bad case of neatitis.
Saturday is the day I deep clean the house. You know, mop, scrub toilets, dust everything, vacuum, wash rugs, do a couple of loads of wash, clean the stove, scrub the kitchen sink, scrub the shower, dust under Mt. Everest and sometimes mow the yard.
There are things, however, that make the cleaning easier and faster. Nice things. Environmentally friendly things.
|Swiffer 360 duster|
|Caldrea Counter Cleaner|
|Mr. Clean Magic Eraser|
|Trader Joe's Kitchen Cloths|
At the risk of sounding like a Pitchman, I love these products.
I know you've seen the commercials for the Magic Eraser and the 360 dusters, I won't bore you with a repeat. They do what they say they'll do. Love them. Especial the Magic Eraser. Wow it's great.
You may not be familiar with Caldrea and Trader Joe's Kitchen Cloths. So, lemme 'splain.
Caldrea creates great earth friendly products that leave a wonderful, clean scent. No over the top pine smell nor funky lingering after smell. The products clean without leaving any residue, especially on granite.
Trader Joe's Kitchen Cloths are the ultimate cleaning rag. Use, wash, reuse, wash, reuse, wash, reuse... You can't find them anywhere but Trader Joe's so if you don't live near a Trader Joe's, which I don't and wish I did but Baby Sis and Older Sis do, you're out of luck...or are you...
