Earlier this month I posted about a new cleaning routine that I was giving a go. My plan was to follow it through January and then decide if it was a good fit. Well, it is the perfect fit! Clean Mama focuses on doing just a little bit each day so that you stay on top of things. I don't think I will ever clean another way again. My house stays clean and presentable on an ongoing basis and I never spend the whole day cleaning, doing laundry and changing sheets on the same day. It doesn't bother me that my entire house isn't totally clean at the same time because I am always keeping up on things. I may not have cleaned my bathrooms on the same day I did the floors but you can be sure I have checked the bathrooms over and done a quick wipe up if needed. I am a happier person if my surroundings are clean and organized.
As for the laundry, Rob and I don't generate too much laundry. Back in the day when I had two teenage daughters that machine was always going. But, I still like that I do a load most days and don't have to spend one day pumping through multiple loads.
There are free monthly printout schedules on the Clean Mama site as well as kits you can buy. I spent $15 Canadian so I could set up this binder.
Last year I purchased this book from Clean Mama for $18 and I have to say that it is worth every penny! I bought mine through Amazon.
Target has been my go to place for green cleaners and since it is closing out in Canada, I decided to give a few more prepared green cleaners a try, in the past two weeks. I figured that if there was anything totally amazing, I could order it on Well. ca. Hmmmm I think that homemade is the way to go.
I am happy to say that I did finish my deep clean.... in a totally tangent manner. ;) I am now ready to receive the Queen! Do you think she would be interested in popping over? ;)
