I’ve been sick…

I’m back! I was sick last week! Not COVID either, just a regular seasonal cold. Those are still happening believe it or not. I thought for sure we weren’t going to get a cold this year with all this hand washing and mask wearing!

This week I want to tell you my cleaning tips! I HATE cleaning. I try to make cleaning as quick and simple. With having gotten sick last week it made me realize that I need to focus on disinfecting better.

Tip number one: wipe all your door knobs DAILY! I know it sounds silly, but many people if you were to ask them probably don’t do this as often as the should. I have started making it part of my routine. I give my kids (who are 9 & 7) a wipe as well and they have their doors to do as well! I wipe down faucet handles, too!

Tip number two: have bins with your kids name on them. Anything that is on the floor at the end of the day, goes in that bin and into their room. They know it is their responsibility to put those things away. I know a lot of my friends have younger kids then I, but it’s never too early to teach them the importance of picking up after themselves.

If you have hard floors I suggest buying a steam mop! It does WONDERS! We use this a few times a week for sure. With kids and two dogs, it’s a must!

Lastly, Mr. Clean Magic Erasers are your best frien when you have kids or pets! Crayon on the wall? Scrub it off with the Magic Eraser! Food cooked into the stove top? Magic Eraser! We buy the big pack because I know they’ll be used!

Now that your house is clean, sit down and enjoy it for the next 15 minutes before it’s dirty again from the dogs or kids!

Stay safe out there. COVID is on the rise in our area, and it’s scary! Also, feel free to leave your cleaning tips below!

    These are great tips!! I love the bin idea particularly if you have 2 or more children. definitely encourages them to pick up their toys which is an excellent skill to learn early in life.
    I also love the door knob idea. I try to clean the doorknobs but don’t do it as often as I would like

    I am IN LOVE with our steam mop! We don’t have kids, but I do have 2 dogs and 2 cats, plus I am a proud Auntie with my nieces and nephews coming to visit. That thing cleans EVERYTHING! I have yet to find a mess that it isn’t prepared to tackle.

      It is THE best thing I’ve ever purchased! I’ve even steamed my walls and doors 🙈😂

    Sorry to hear you’ve been poorly. I was only saying the other day that I have not had my seasonal cold this year or my summer one! I am so pleased!

    I am so good at door handles at work (In a school!) but I never think about it at home, only when I am blitzing the house. I like the basket idea, We put stuff on the stairs currently but they get stepped over by all of us x

      I hear that often! Get some baskets that you can put the stuff in to take it up! ❤️ thank you for reading & stay safe!

    What on earth is a magic eraser and where do it get one?!

    We’ve got colds here too. Both the boys are just disgusting snoring factories, bit better today though thank goodness. Take care of yourself xx
