4 Weeks to a More Organized Home…Simplified {Day 13}

Are you following along with this series? I am really happy with the progress that is being made in how clean my house looks. I hope you are seeing improvement too. Today assignment from Crystal was to

First get dressed in something you love. Since today was a little chilly I opted for some long pants and a t-shirt but I also put on my sweater too.

Second make a to do list of 5-7 items. I have to admit I failed to do this today. I was able to remember what cleaning I had to do but I just forgot to take the time to write down my list. 🙁

Third item was to clean the top of the refrigerator. I needed to clear and organized the items up on top of the refrigerator. I had a spray bottle of top the fridge to remove and just clean up the rest. But to my surprise the top of the refrigerator was cover in a fine gray dust with grease mixed in.

I used my steam cleaner to steam off the grease. I have found my steam cleaner works better than any chemical cleaners I have tried. After the cleaning the top of the fridge was all nice and shiny.

I decided since I had my steam cleaner out, I just steam cleaned the cupboard doors. I don’t think you can tell much from the before and after pictures but there was a little food stuck to the cupboards and that same kitchen grease film on them that was on the top of the refrigerator. Now they are all nice and clean.

Lastly, I also steam cleaned the bathroom too.

Do you have any tools you use to help make cleaning your home more easy?

  1. It’s good to see somebody else keeps there picnic basket on top of the fridge. I moved ours to the storage area yesterday since I’m not anticipating any picnics until late next spring and summer again.

    1. I keep my picnic basket up there year round to store the kids cold packs for when we go out in the car so they can take along a snack. That way we don’t have to stop for food while we are out. I just wish they fit all the way down inside the basket.

  2. I love the idea of steam cleaning the cabinets. We have a gas stove and it seems to leave a layer of grime of everything near it. I bet that would really work well.

  3. I recently bought a steam mop for cleaning the floors and I like it pretty well. Sometimes it leaves streaks on my laminate floor, but I like the fact that I don’t have to use any chemicals to get the floors clean.

    I didn’t have time to do the top of my refrigerator yesterday, but I did clean it this afternoon…it was just a bit dusty. We have an electric stove, so we don’t get the grease. I grew up with a gas stove and it sure did make everything greasy.

    1. We have an electric stove so I just can’t figure out where all the grease comes from. I don’t deep fry at all and I use very little oil when I am cooking but it sure does build up.

      I really like that a steam cleaner doesn’t use any chemicals but still cleans things well.
