For me, I really don’t like cleaning. If I could, I would just do it all over the weekend but then I think of my childhood.
My mom made Saturdays the BIG CLEAN. New sheets on bed, clean out closet, wash bathrooms, vacuum, and everything else.
So, here I am, staring down the barrel of the New Year, armed with a latte and a dream: to finally nail those New Year’s cleaning resolutions.
You know, those promises we make to transform our homes from ‘whoa’ to ‘wow’ without breaking a sweat?
Are you dealing with stubborn hard water stains on your glass surfaces?
I am! Ugh!
Those pesky stains are a real eyesore on my shower doors, windows, and even glassware.
And no matter what I do to wipe them away or scrub them away, they don’t go away!
One of my hated chores turned into my absolutely favorite chore.
Want to know what it is?
It’s cleaning my bathtub!
Over the years, I’ve become somewhat of a cleaning expert (thanks, kids!) and have tried just about every cleaning product under the sun to get my first apartment and then my home spic and span clean.
From tackling tough grime in the bathrooms to removing pesky stains on the carpet, I’ve learned which products are worth the hype and which ones just don’t cut it.
I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m lazy and want everything easy.
And that means having a weekly cleaning schedule that even me – a lazy person – will ACTUALLY do.
Even if I do it bare minimum, if my house looks presentable and clean, I’m all in.
Do you ever avoid cleaning your dirty bathroom because you think it’s going to be a total slog?
Hey, I get it – no one really wants to clean their bathroom.
I mean I don’t even though my bathroom is small, but I have to as part of my cleaning schedule.
If you’re anything like me, you know the struggle of transforming your hair into a vibrant masterpiece, only to discover that your sink and walls have become an unintentional canvas for your creativity.
It’s seriously frustrating and annoying, right?
I love sponges!
I mean, look at my blog name – Spongehacks!
They are budget-friendly, easy to use and easy to clean too.
I have twins and a pet kitty.
And white walls.
This is the recipe for disaster!
Scud marks, pencil or marker markings and the run of the mill piece of food stuck on the wall.
