Spring Cleaning: Challenge Accepted
I have been a busy little Spring-Cleaning-Bee around these parts. Back in this post, I wrote that I was going to actually select and use a Spring Cleaning list from my Pinterest board. There were so many cute choices to pick from. You can check out my favorite options here.
I ended up selecting this one:
I LOVE! Here’s why:
One: I am a sucker for a flow chart. I am a visual learner, ya know!
Two: I wanted my newly adopted plan to be easy to follow. Nothing says “easy” like arrows telling me what to do next.
Three: I enjoyed the process and flow. I found that this particular list would lend itself well to life beyond the BIG Spring Cleaning experience. I feel like I could easily take parts of the comprehensive list and use it to keep up with a more regular cleaning routine.
Four: This list included laundry in the process. I often put laundry in and forget about it. I like that the list reminded me to swap the laundry around.
Five: IT ENDS WITH A COCKTAIL. Duh.
Here are the supplies I used:
Not much mystery here, folks. I used the following items:
- Rags for wiping, polishing, scrubbing, etc
- Hand-held duster for the obvious
- Multi-Purpose spray with vinegar (this brand rocks because it does not stink like chemicals!)
- Toothbrush for getting into the small nooks and cracks
- Pretty rubber gloves to protect my manicure.
- (Not pictured) I used the typical toilet cleaning materials but did not want to set them on my kitchen counter… gross
Over all I feel great about the use of the check sheet. I also loved how the supplies were so simple. I am going to print myself a new copy and laminate it for future uses. Once laminated I can simply use a Visa Vis dry-erase marker and wipe it off with water. In the end, I found that I was finished way sooner than I had expected, and I attribute that victory to the list. Yay!
Have you had any refreshing Spring Cleaning experiences?
