It´s wonderful when its done.. one funny thing always after spring cleaning.. it´s so cold inside ( like dust had some warming capabilities lol ) and the relief that its done is the best

I am the cook of the house, so I make the biggest messes......... plus............ I'm a dirt magnet. Yes, it's true.

I do the gross removal, and my Darlin' does the fine tuning to her standard. I don't dust, and I think dusting is a waste of time; I'd rather remove the dust, than re-air-entrain it.

I see a certain level of uncleanliness, and mitigate it. My darlin' likes a further standard, and thus I step aside and encourage her to do her thang. It works.

I like to man-mop (spot cleaning). I will mop the whole floor maybe once a month. Otherwise, I clean where it looks dirty.

This has now become the routine since December.
I could really use another hour in the day.
I know,it's shocking.

I'll never go again there.

Well, you can change the locks at the house,while they are not at home,at least for few days,it will be a start.

Yes, the hard part would be getting them to leave though. Really miss the good ole days where all I had to do was put on one of my daughter's dress up crowns, grab the toy scepter and start dispensing commands. No great surprise my tools of power were sold by my daughter at the annual summer garage sale soon after.


Why does spring cleaning have to land so close to summer?

I start in my kitchen,dishes first,wipe counters,sweep floor....hand scrub floor...
onto dining room..

Clean table off, wipe it. Sweep floor, take out garbage...hand scrub floor...

On to the living room!

Pick up trash, cloths, beer cans, empty ash trays, dust off tv stand, computer stand...wash windows,tv..vacuum carpet....

Onto hallway...rearrange boots and shoes...vacuum carpet.
On to bathroom....

Scrub shower tiles,scrub bathtub,scrub toilet, scrub sink and med cabinet...hand scrub floor..

On to
Daughters bedroom....

Now here it gets tricky....
Ask daughter to clean room...
Ask daughter again 10 minutes later...

Send daughter into room with garbage bag asking again for her to clean room...
Watch cloths pile up in hallway from her room....

Remind her to fill garbage bag with garbage....
Remind her again 10 minutes later to fill bag with garbage...

Explain that toys need to be off the floor....
Explain 10 minutes later that toys need to be off the floor...

Threaten to burn toys 20 minutes later because they are still on the floor....
Give in to the fact that I will not burn the toys, but that I WANT THEM OFF THE FLOOR.....

Repeat for around 5 days...

5 days later, pull out small vacuum and ask daughter to vacuum room...

watch cloths pile up in hallway....

Unclog vacuum....

Smile at daughter and give her a couple of bucks for getting her room clean...

On to bedroom....

Pick up cloths, make bed, vacuum....

Done!

There is a solution to the problem.

You can give them these type of pillows to sleep on,
