Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘Spring Cleaning

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

I have a basket full of old brushes and combs that I hate to throw away because as a child of the 60’s, we were taught to recycle and reuse everything.  Today I was doing a little Spring Cleaning and my worse chore is vacuuming the stairs. Although we remove our shoes in the laundry room the stairs are always dusty and quite noticeable to me everyday.

Lugging the Electrolux canister vacuum up and down and positioning it on the steps, hoping it doesn’t fall keeps me from using it every week. Today I used an old brush to sweep the stairs, eliminating the need to plug, lug and move the vacuum up and down and as an added benefit it was great exercise!
