Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘clorox

I know there is still snow on the ground and the temps are in the teens but if you are anything like me you don’t wait for March or April to begin Spring Cleaning.  Unfortunately cleaning is constant…dust doesn’t take a break AND you never own a house, the house owns you!

I don’t have a baby but because I was my grandmother’s caregiver I have several packs of baby wipes left after she transitioned.  I keep a tub of them in each bathroom to use as quick cleaning wipes they are thick and just the right size to use on the countertops and faucets, if used on the toilet seat I’ll add a little Pinesol.  They are are less costly than the leading cleaning wipes and they don’t contain harsh chemicals so there’s no need to use gloves

Tomorrow hubby and I will be celebrating our 22nd Wedding Anniversary at our favorite restaurant in Newark. I will be wearing the blue dress that I purchased from Boscov’s and for the life of me I couldn’t remember if I had shoes to wear with it. Driving home I contemplated stopping at the mall but I didn’t want to spend a lot on a pair of shoes that most likely will be worn only a few times.
I drive by a Goodwill so I decided to stop and found 2 pairs of shoes for $4.00 each! In the past I would never have purchased second hand shoes but thanks to the recession that is no longer unthinkable.

Most times the shoes are gently worn or haven’t been worn at all and I make sure to thoroughly disinfectant them prior to wearing. I donate shoes to Goodwill all the time and there are times when women have tried on shoes in the department store prior to my purchasing them so it’s no big deal.

I spray and wipe out the shoes and straps while wearing plastic or rubber gloves, and for non-fabric shoes I use bleach and water.
