I have a confession to make. I don’t wash my floors very often. And by not very often, I mean hardly ever. I just can’t find the time. We moved to a new house in May and have been busy almost every weekend since. There have been beach trips and family picnics and vacations. There have been amusement parks and mini golf adventures. Now that the weather is getting cooler, there are farms to visit and apples to eat and fairs to have fun at.
I work all day, then after school/work just can’t shoo away my kids so I can vacuum or scrub toilets. I do keep up on laundry and keeping things generally uncluttered, but I just can’t find the time to wipe fingerprints off the refrigerator door. On the weekends I need to let loose and have fun with my kids just as much as they do with me so I just cannot bring myself to sacrifice family trips and bike rides for mops and buckets.
I know the easy answer…outsource. But hiring someone to do our cleaning isn’t in the cards for us right now. I do have a neat house, but would like to have something a bit more company ready at a moment’s notice. Does anyone have any quick and easy tips for cleaning as you go versus taking a whole day to do it?
