Today my hubby and I spent most of the day cleaning our house. We have a small townhome, so you’d think it wouldn’t take too long to clean, but we have been so busy the last few weeks it was way overdue. I REALLY hate cleaning so it took some time to get motivated but I am glad we started early so we could get it done and chill tonight. We had to clean and organize our spare bedroom as my sister is giving us some furniture, and the downstairs really needed a deep cleaning (including pulling the entire couch apart and vacuuming each cushion thanks to my dog’s shedding). That took almost an hour right there. But as much as I hate cleaning, I sure do enjoy the feeling of accomplishment afterwards and enjoying the benefits… kind of like exercising for me too lol! I really need to try one of these challenges: http://pinterest.com/pin/202873158186607231/ or http://pinterest.com/pin/202873158186032760/
I did discover today that you can put your plastic (clear) shower curtain liner in the washing machine with about a half-cup of bleach, and it gets rid of any mildew build-up. Seriously, it looks brand new! I might be way behind on this, but I am glad I gave it a try because I would just go out and buy a new one rather than spend the time trying to clean it by hand. Yes, I’m that lazy… don’t judge…
Also, have you seen this on Pinterest? We started using it a few months ago and it is an absolute life saver! It cuts through caked-on hairspray on my bathroom counter like nothing else. I also keep one of these in my shower: http://pinterest.com/pin/202873158186473925/.
Anyway, what have you been up to this weekend? Hopefully something way more exciting than cleaning! But if you have been cleaning like me, what are some of your favorite tips/tricks?
