I love cleaning hacks. I love having a clean home. I am linking up with the wonderful Erin from Perfectly Port Family for her fun link-up (10 on the 10th)…
I feel like a person can clean virtually anything with these three products…
Anyone else have microfiber couches? We got a new set out couches right after Maddi was born and it was the WORST mistake to get microfiber with a new baby. I found this hack a long time ago on Pintrest and continue to use it today…
Storing sheets and linens inside of pillow cases is the perfect way to organize your linen closets. It also makes it easy for when you have guests staying over. I keep all the pillow cases, fitted sheets, as well as flat sheets in one matching pillow case.
Decluttering. You guys, I made a goal at the beginning of the year to go through 40 different places throughout my house and get rid of at least one garbage bag full of stuff. This was AMAZING! My kids and husband loved helping with this so much which made it that much more fun. Cutting the clutter is a HUGE step in maintaining an organized and clean home. I thought I would show you the different places around my home that I de-cluttered…
Invest in the Martha Stewart Homekeeping Handbook. If I ever need cleaning advice I turn to this book every single time. I love this book, it is full of great, practical advice.
Keeping the outside of your house clean is important as well. We power wash the outside of our house several times a year, I also clean the outside windows once a month with a little squirt of Dawn dishsoap, Jet Dry (just a little squirt), and hot water. This works wonders. And this sounds weird, but I use newspaper to wipe my windows down with. My grandma and great-grandma swear by this trick and I do to. You get no “fuzz” or lint leftover on your window, and it leaves your windows streak free.
Do a little each day. Each day we set a timer and pick up our stuff. I also fold blankets and put them away, as well as vacuum. Vacuum lines just make me happy. I wipe down my counter tops after I load the dishwasher (I run a load of dishes each night), and then sweep my kitchen. I also complete at least one load of laundry each day (washing, drying, folding, and putting away). This way I feel like I stay on top of housework which makes me a little calmer. Some days…I don’t feel like it and that is ok to. Giving yourself grace is a must!
