This will be my last blog on spring cleaning. I know, don't cry. But, I do have some more great tips to offer you from Sarah. Here's what she had to say...
"I am naturally a "weeks-between-moppings" girl too, but I've found some help in FlyLady - she has the same idea you do - break it up over the week and keep it manageable. I have been using a bottle of 1/2 white vinegar, 1/2 water as my all-purpose cleaner. It works great on kitchen surfaces and bathrooms (even the toilet!) It's a natural disinfectant and the vinegar smell goes away quickly. A few other things I've liked lately: put a whole lemon rind down the garbage disposal and it cleans and freshens everything. The baking soda thing is great - better than soft scrub! Also, I went to Target and bought 2 bins. Then I split all Juli's toys and books and stuffed animals in to 3 piles. I packed up two of them and left the other in the room. For anyone who doesn't already do this, it's a lifesaver. The room stays so much more organized, and somehow the toys I left out seem so much more interesting to Juli. And then, in a month or two, I'll bring out one of the bins and switch it with the toys that are out: Voila! New toys!"
Thank you Sarah for your great tips. I'm all about sorting and swapping toys, we do that quite often. Somtimes I give A some of her brothers toys and vice versa. She loves to play with his cars and he enjoys some of her "little people" figures. I also like the lemon in the disposal idea. I do not currently have a disposal but, I did when we had an apartment. Great ideas!!
Well folks, hope some of the tips helped you out. This weekend we are celebrating A's 2nd birthday so by next week I should have some pics to show you. Have a lovely weekend!
