Cleaning tips...

My cleaning tips...
Comet is only $1.00 a can and is awesome for toilets and sinks...the white porcelain kind.
Always have a few Magic Erasers on hand.
Baby wipes can get out almost anything.
If you can't get a pan clean, put a little water in it and put it oven for awhile.
Don't get a least not an old chocolate lab that can't stand to be outside for more than 5 minutes. Love you Blue!
Don't buy new furniture, new carpet, paint your walls, nothing until your kids are potty trained and done with their need to eat anywhere besides the kitchen table!
It helps to marry someone who is a little bit of a neat, clean freak like I did. However, it can be annoying at times.
Don't be a pack rat. Throw it out!
Wood floors with rugs are much easier to clean or replace when needed than carpeting.
I still love the Arm and Hammer stuff that you put on your carpets and vaccum up even though they say that you never really get it all up.
Clean your makeup brushes at least once a week and replace your loofah every 3 weeks. I know, I saw it on Rachael Ray today don't blame me.
Vaccum your matress and wash your pillows. Again, Oprah...sometimes its just better to not know.
Don't assume that when Grandma sends paints in the mail, that you have safely hidden them away from your kids until you are ready to let them paint...on paper.


  1. I clicked over here from Kelly's blog and LAUGHED OUT LOUD at your Rachel Ray "tips". My 11-year-old daughter was watching RR today too, and came and found me to tell me that I needed to be cleaning my makeup brushes once a week and needed to throw out a loofah after three weeks. (I sorta thought she misunderstood that until I read it here!) Wow, who knew!

    Oh, and btw, your children are beautiful. That picture on your blog header is so sweet!
