Earlier this week I asked for parenting advice...and here I am now asking for cleaning advice. This may be a dumb post, but I'm curious as to how people clean their homes. Do they do it everyday? What do you use to clean? Etc.
As a mom of 2 and also working from 9 - 2, my house gets overlooked at times. I wouldn't say that I am a messy person, but my house is not ever immaculate looking. However, it aggravates me when it isn't.
A few things I do every morning to make it look "clean" are...
*make my bed every morning.
*pick up the living room.
*put dishes in sink.
*clean the kitchen table.
*sweep my kitchen.
I'm really bad about not folding laundry right away. And I'm even worse about not picking up "stacks" of things I have piled in our room.
I usually spend my Saturday's cleaning my house. So at least for 4 days everything is clean until life happens again. :) I clean the bathrooms, the kitchen, kids rooms, vacuum, clean floors, dust...and all that jazz. I love 409, Green Works (from clorox) spray, Comet, Costco Cleaning Wipes (because you get a huge amount), Orange Pledge and anything that has a lemon smell. I also love lighting candles and listening to music while I clean. It makes the experience better for me. For some odd reason I really enjoy cleaning because it feels productive. But sometimes I can get obsessive about it, but that's probably a character flaw having something to do with control. :)
So, this may be a really random post, but I would like to know what you do. Does it make a difference when you are a stay at home mom? Do you fall behind when you are always busy? Or do you keep on top of it because you are obsessed? :) Be honest.
