I sat twiddling my thumbs wondering, what detox topic shall I discuss next? I decided cleaning would be perfect, since as moms we often spend lots of time scrubbing the bathrooms, the sink and now... those fingerprints left on the stainless appliances, Oi!
I want to begin by mentioning this site that I often visited as a new wife and homemaker. It helped me when I needed that extra boost:
FlyLady- This woman CHANGED my life. Newly married, someone suggested her website to me and I am so glad!
She taught me how to keep a house clean, one baby step at a time. It all started with an easy step: shining my sink. I love sharing about FlyLady to newbies and seeing how excited they get after visiting her site!
Do you know the FlyLady?
A brief word about products:
I used to spend lots of time (and $) trying out new cleaning products. The scents can be so enticing! To be honest though, I have found that warm water seems to work best on most things. I bought a few name brand stainless cleaners (wont mention them here) but each one left smears. Though I was in love with their scents, none produced a very worthy result.
Now, I just wipe my fridge down with a wet rag and it gets all shiny and perfect.
