Aromatherapy While You Clean Sunday, Aug 22 2010 

I’ve just started using Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Lemon Verbena All Purpose Cleaner. I have to tell you not only is Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day biodegradable and it has a nice scent, but it also cleans really well. I have cleaned hardwood floors, slate floors and ceramic tile floors with it. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day All Purpose Cleaner consistently leaves the floors gleaming. I put about a 1/4 of a cup in a gallon of warm water and I don’t even need to rinse. I also use it in a spray bottle to clean counter tops, walls and cupboards. I put about four tablespoons in a large spray bottle then fill the bottle with water and it’s ready to go.

For Those That Hate To Dust… Sunday, Jul 18 2010 

Try the Swiffer Duster: it’s small and fluffy and grabs all of those annoying dust particles so they don’t spread through the room as you clean. It makes dusting almost fun. The draw back to the Swiffer Duster is that it uses disposable dust cloths. However, for all of you crafty people I found a site that shows you how to make reusable dust cloths for the Swiffer – If only someone would mass-produce them: http://sewmuchado.blogspot.com/2010/02/tutorial-reusable-swiffer-duster-cloths.html

Get Your Gleam On Monday, Jul 5 2010 

There is nothing like having stainless kitchen appliances with fingerprints and grime marks on them.  What everyone needs, besides the house cleaner, is Bar keepers Friend. It’s a relatively inexpensive product that really works and is safe for food preparation and food storage areas. I found it at Target for less than two dollars for a 12oz can. Bar Keepers Friend was popular in Saloons back in the late 1800s to keep brass fixtures gleaming. It’s also great for cleaning stainless, chrome, tile, grout and porcelain. Use as directed.

Erase Away The Grime Friday, Jun 25 2010 

A friend gave me a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser a while ago and I never got around to trying it, until now. They are great! I have been looking at this black scuffmark on my white washing machine for several weeks. I had tried several cleaners and none worked. Today I tried the Magic Eraser and in just a few strokes the mark was gone.  It is great for walls, baseboards, switch plates and much, much more. I highly recommend Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Please use as directed.
