Today it was much easier to surface clean the living room and the kitchen. I had the kids help pick up the toys in the living room and dust and vacuum while I worked in the kitchen on the counters and the microwave.
I had a stray jar and some recycling to take out to the recycling can in the kitchen. In the living room there was some toys that needed to be picked up. Then we vacuumed the living room and the kitchen.
I used my Mrs. Meyers Clean Day spray on the counter tops to do a quick clean. (this stuff smells so good) To clean the microwave, I just placed a cup of water in the microwave and heated it to let it steam and then I just had to wipe out the microwave.
I also cleaned the inside of the windows around the house too. Since I have been cleaning the windows in each room as I went along, there were only a few left in the basement to tackle so it was a quick job to finish up today.
All in all I think our cleaning today took us about 20 minutes tops.
Here’s some pictures from our cleaning today,
I hope I am not the only one whose living room looks like this on a regular basis. We do pick up at least 2 times a day but the toys are usually scattered about.
I just had to take a picture of my sparkling clean sink.
The living room is picked up again. I don’t know how long it will last but at least you can walk across the floor without stepping on toys.
I have to admit I love having the rooms all nice and picked up. I also like that it didn’t take me all day to do these tasks. 🙂
How did your cleaning go today?
