…anyway, the real reason I’m writing today. It’s Work in Progress Wednesday! I always feel like I have a thousand projects, but they’re boring little household things that probably will put you to sleep. Or you’ll just commiserate. Or both.
But this week I’ve been focusing a little bit more on my 31 Days to a Clean House project. Click on that link to get to the free printable I’m using this month.
I’m going to be honest and admit that I skipped a whole lot of stuff just because they’re already on my monthly cleaning checklist, and I don’t care to duplicate my efforts if I don’t have to. If you’re a mom, you know what I mean. It’s enough just to try to keep the floor clean. Especially when you have snow days. Know what I mean?
I did clean the microwave though. It’s been a while, and it was gross. I also took some rubbing alcohol and a rag and wiped down the window sills upstairs. What a difference that made! I’ll be more thorough during the month where I clean the windows, but for now at least I know I’ve made a dent in things. Don’t forget about the outside of your house as well! You need to clean your windows and the gutter, this is tough to do if you don’t have the right equipment though, so you should probably check out someone like these gutter and eaves cleaning services. I have also dusted the corners around the house, dusted and vacuumed vents, wiped doorknobs and switch plates–you know, those things we don’t think about…GROSS!–cleaned the bedrooms (on my monthly cleaning checklist), and wiped down the kitchen. All I have left are the bathrooms and the downstairs window sills.
How about you? What are you working on today?
