Linking up with Kelly’s Korner Blog! Todays Show Us Your Life topic is all about cleaning tips!
First things first. I have a confession. I am a total neat freak. Like OCD about cleanliness and I wish I wasn’t sometimes. I’m not OCD to the point that I’m following the twins all day long picking up but I do pickup right after they are done playing with the toy/food they are playing with. With three under two if I’m not picking up a little bit all day long, I would have an absolute mess to clean by night. I do most of my cleaning during naps and bedtime so I can enjoy them throughout most of the day!I
I don’t have a whole bunch of tips but here are a few! I cant wait to learn about some of the other tips in the linkup too!
- I make my own laundry soap and I love it! You can go here to get the recipe for it!
- Are your kids super messy? It seems that even if I give JP the “cleanest” food he still tends to get it all.over.him. And his clothes. I tried a ton of different stain removers and other tricks but nothing worked. I finally tried my own “trick”. I soaked his shirt in the kitchen sink one night (overnight) in a mixture of dawn soap and oxy clean powder. The next day? The stains were completely gone! I was amazed! Ive tried doing this to pre-stained shirts too but it doesn’t work as good. It got some of it out but if you do this the day of the stain or day after it works very well.
- Vinegar/water. I use this for everything. From disinfecting the bathtubs to mopping the floors. It makes the floors so shiny! It all natural so I love it! I even put it in a load of sour towels and let it sit overnight to get that funky smell out. Works like a dream! Our great great (and probably another great) grandmothers used this, why shouldn’t we?
Hope I gave a couple of good tips! I cant wait to read the other ones! Go to Kelly’s Korner to linkup!
