One of my favorite cleaning supplies is one designed for your teeth. I have found a toothbrush to be a handy little tool for cleaning the house as well as those pearly whites. (Of course, I never use the same one for both. Ewwww!)
I use a toothbrush for cleaning all sorts of hard to reach places such as, window tracks, flooring transitions, corners, where the baseboard meets the floor, etc. I also use them for scrubbing tile grout. I wouldn't be without one when I am trying to do a really detailed cleaning. I try to always have several on hand, but I buy them on the cheap, they don't need to be the same good quality that you would use in your mouth.
Now, onto my progress on the cleaning grand plan . . .
Today, I moved into the living room and accomplished the following:
- Cleaned the light fixture and ceiling fan.
- Washed the window and windowsill.
- Cleaned out the window track (using a handy-dandy toothbrush).
- Cleaned the blinds.
- Washed the curtains.
- Washed the walls.
- Cleaned the mirror.
- Dusted all the art hanging on the walls.
Window tracks can get gross fast and it makes me feel so good to see one looking like this. Is that weird?
