We would love to hear some of your cleaning FAVs. Be sure to share them with us. Happy Spring Cleaning!
1. Our very own Nancy blogged about this label maker on her personal blog a long time ago.
I LOVE to organize things--it makes me happy! I had seen these advertised so I went to get one and I have not been disappointed! It really is the handiest thing to have around the house and the labeling possibilities are endless! I've even seen my husband sneak it to make labels for his hunting stuff:) If you buy one, save your 50% off coupon for AC Moore. I have used mine to label many things including:
Containers in my pantry...
...storage Bins in our garage......
...and I'm starting to organize one of the closets in the playroom. This is helping me to get started:
2. My mother-in-law gave me this WONDERFUL washcloth in my stocking last Christmas. I have ranted and raved about it, which makes her and my sister-in-law laugh, but this is the BEST kitchen washcloth ever. It's crocheted (sp??) and very thick. The best part is, it has yet to get that nasty, old washcloth smell that sometimes happens if a washcloth sits out too long. It has never smelled musty, no matter how long it has sat in the sink. I've been searching and searching where I could find someone who made these because I wanted to buy some more!!! FINALLY, I've found somewhere and you'll be surprised but stay tuned for tomorrow's Mommy Marketing Moment! 3. This floor cleaner is.....well, Fabuloso! I use a vinegar/water solution to mop my floors. I add a little of this stuff and my house smells great! The type I get is a lavender scent and I like it because it doesn't have a chemical smell: 4. My friend, Jenny, gave me this tip at a Mary Kay Party recently and it's a good one. What do you do with all of those old, personalized burp cloths? I received so many when my son was born and I hated to just throw them out. My daughter claimed a few for her baby dolls, but I had tons left. Well, Jenny gave me the good idea to cut them in half and use them as dust cloths. Brilliant! I tried this yesterday when I spent 5 hours deep cleaning my house. The cloth was the perfect fabric for dusting. I'm throwing all my nasty rags out and from now on, I will dust the house in true monogram fashion:
