Cleaning tips

Kelly is doing a Show us your Life for Cleaning tips. We could all uses some tips.

I am the kinda of girl that is busy all day then really starts cleaning around 4:00 and the kids say "yeah daddy is coming home soon". They know my schedule, Ha!

I am quick to do things, and sometimes I time my self. I'll set the microwave timer for 10 minutes and see how much I can get done. I do this so I stay on track, because with two kids I get easily distracted.

Ok so for almost any hard surface I use Pine- sol. I LOVE the smell. I fill my sink with steaming hot water and add a bit of the cleaner. I use a towel and clean the counters, table, cabinets, and inside/outside the fridge.

I buy this huge bottle at Sams club to make it last a while.

My other tip is dusting, I have a swifter dust brush, but what I find works even better is the Scotch Brite dry sweeping cloths for the floor. I got them first as a sample, but I couldn't use it how I was supposed to because you have to have their stick to attach it to. I thought it would pick up my dust and it does, and it works GREAT!

I am excited to get some more quick and easy tips!
