Hello good people! I hope you are doing well. So many kids are returning to school this week. I pray the transition into this new school year is smooth as silk for you!
I found an awesome idea on pinterest, my favorite website, for a cleaning schedule. She breaks it down into little bits each day. This week I've actually been implementing this plan, it's been hanging on my fridge for the last month, and I must say it's great. A little effort every morning before work leaves my evenings free for other fun stuff!
Also on pinterest I found an awesome idea for a shower cleaner. I tried to upload a photo, but haven't been successful. Anyway, take one f those little scrubbie things for the dishes that have a tube attached, and you fill with dish soap. Fill it half full with vinegar, and the other half with blue Dawn dish-soap. Use it on the shower wall after your shower. Then I squeegee my shower, and oh my goodness! How easy to keep those showers looking good, with minimal effort. I love this mixture so much I'm going to mix a batch and put in a spray bottle to use on the tub. It seems I cannot find a tub cleaner that works well, that I don't have to wear a gas mask to use. I'll keep you posted on the results.
Another use for blue Dawn is to mix it 1 part Dawn with 2 parts peroxide. This is seriously the best stain remover in the world. There was a stain in the corner of my dining room carpet that had been there before I bought the house. I've used various cleaners on it, and nothing worked. Enter blue Dawn and peroxide. Spray it on, then used my carpet cleaner on it because I was actually cleaning my carpets that day. Voila! It's gone!!! Gotta love it!
One last thing I'm going to try with the blue Dawn is to make glass cleaner. I used to make it with 1 gallon of distilled water, minus 16 ounces. Add 16 ounces of rubbing alcohol, and 2 tbsp of Prell shampoo. Shake it, then pour into spray bottle. Clean windows to your heart's content! Instead of the Prell, I'm going to substitute the blue Dawn. I have a sneaky feeling I will like the results!
I think that's all I have to say about cleaning for now! It's really not one of my favorite past-times, but I do love to share a good product when I find one. Blue Dawn....it's the bomb!!!!
Make it an awesome day!!!
