Part One : Simple Cleaning
I thought about this blog series when I noticed a pattern in my home. Over the years I have simplified a few items to help me maintain order in the midst of my chaos. I would love to take credit for these great ideas I am going to share with you. However, my collection of advice has been gleaned from several ladies over the years.
Do you love cleaning as much as I do? Okay, that is not true! I like to organize, not clean. Organizing is therapeutic for me. I am not great at keeping a cleaning schedule. There are several excuses I make about this. They are all true but are just excuses. But, there is something that makes cleaning a little easier for me.
Is it necessary to have a bathroom cleaner, kitchen cleaner, sink cleaner, floor cleaner, shower cleaner, and toilet cleaner? No, it is not. So, simplify your cabinets and save some cash. Just use one cleaning product for most all of your cleaning.
First, buy a few good spray bottles. Don't buy the cheap one from the dollar store. I have gone through a few of those. Then, buy a concentrated cleaning solution. I use lavender scented Pine-Sol. You choose the cleaner that you like. Pour some cleaner in the spray bottles and dilute it with water. Put a spray bottle in the kitchen and all the bathrooms. I also use it with a mop that you can use you own cleaning solution. I frequently get compliments on how good my house smells even after I just clean the kitchen counters.
Incorporate my one cleaner tip into your cleaning regimen. You will simplify your under counter space and save some cash.
