Cleaning is overrated. It dries out my hands, makes my house stink like chemicals, takes valuable time away from my family, and never lasts more than 5 minutes. However, I suffer an emotional breakdown when surrounded by clutter, dirty dishes, mountains of laundry, and general toddler debris. Seriously, ask my hubby. I had one Saturday night. On Sunday, we attacked the house while the kids napped. Praise the Lord they napped at the same time. It is refreshing to know a few areas are clean and re-organized. We'll see how long it lasts.
Recently, I have discovered new cleaning products. I love them. It's called Mrs Meyers Clean Day. They are good for the environment (nice plus) and smell awesome. I want to buy more cleaning products because they smell so amazing; I need multiple scents. My current fave is lemon verbena. Seriously, you should try them. While I'm not really a hippie/Mother Earth freak, I do like the idea of not cleaning with harsh chemicals. The products aren't antibacterial, which means I'm not contributing to resistant bacteria strains. So while I still despise cleaning, at least I found a product that makes it a bit more enjoyable for me and keeps my family safe. Check them out.
