I mean one of those deep cleans...where you go beyond what you normally do. Not just a quick dust, then a run-through with the vacuum and a swish of the mop.
Seems like lately I just haven't had a lot of time to devote to housekeeping. I try to run the vacuum a few times a week - that is an absolute necessity with three dogs in the house most of the time. And I dust about once a week; mop about the same unless there is a spill. By the end of the week, it's just starting to feel sorta disgusting to me.....my Momma raised me better than that!
This morning, though, I got in a MOOD! I felt the NEED to go into the corners and do some Spring-like cleaning. So, I hit it early - and hard.
I even laundered and pressed my kitchen curtains! They were beyond looking a little dingy....but, they're WHITE again now.
|Ahhh, white again.....no more dinge!|
I cleaned blinds, windowsills, baseboards. Vacuumed lampshades and furniture. Wiped down ceiling fans.
Whew!!! I almost finished, too. All I lack is one room - Eddie's "man cave". But, you know, I don't think he will mind it being "dirty" one more day. I just hope I wake up tomorrow with the same inspiration to tackle it that I had today!
|Enjoying the fruit's of Mommy's labor....or waiting for her to turn back on Animal Planet?|
Of course, the payoff - it feels great! And I fall a little deeper in love with our little cottage each time it sparkles and shines like this!
How about you? Ever get in one of these moods and feel the NEED to CLEAN?!?!? Got a special tip that speeds it up or makes you more efficient in your cleaning? If so, I hope you will take a moment to share.
Enjoy the weekend!
