Maybe it'd be helpful to know DH grilled most of our dinner outside... winky.gif I had two pans to clean, plus their lids, a sharp knife, and glass cutting board. DD had four plates, three forks, one butter knife, serving utensils, grilling tongs, and a glass. DH had a dozen or less small items to put away.

I spent the five minutes my coffeemaker was working putting away the clean dishes, filling the water jug, and replacing the bag in the kitchen garbage. :D

 

4 minutes!

Sweetjasmine, it's always been one of my most hated jobs too, and I couldn't work out how to get the mould off....but I have now found a way of getting the mould off the tiles, I use washing up detergent!  And I use a scrubbing brush. Then I get the shower hose and rinse it all off.  It actually works really well.

 


Thanks ladies! Yes, that makes sense. I have to figure, too, that if I give everything a good cleaning now and then, in between times will go faster and I won't need to spend alot of time cleaning. I should have checked in last night because I think I got the kitchen cleaned after supper in record time!

 

Do you mean dishwasher detergent? It's not too

harsh on the tiles? If it works that well it would be much to cheaper to use.

I want to know too! "Washing up detergent" that could be like body wash? SLS is a strong surfactant, I don't doubt it! The castile soap I use can be worked into a great lather, but I dono how well it would work on tiles, I think it'd be more about the brush. Bronner's makes a cleaner, tho, called sal's suds, that is basically just the main ingredient in a lot of conventional body washes. ....anyway, I could see how it'd be dishwashing or like what you'd use to clean the countertop as well...... must be part of a regional dialect. Anyone use bon ami or bartender's friend (like comet but without bleach)? Anyway I guess I thought I was in the bathroom cleaning thread for a minute there : P what are we on, seven minutes? Ok I will limit myself to seven minutes on this front closet. It's just coats, laundry stuff, and a bag of stuff to donate so shouldn't take long to whip into shape!!

 

ETA: there was almost nothing to be done in that closet, so I got the play area just outside of it tidied as well!!

 

Six minutes

post #32 of 51

I'm going to sweep for six minutes. D:

 

3 minutes!

post #33 of 51

I moved clean wet laundry from the washer to the dryer. Surprisingly, that took 1.5 minutes, so I also dried and put away two trays I had hand-washed earlier.

 

7 minutes

post #34 of 51

folded & put away a load of laundry. (it was small.)

 

4 minutes

post #35 of 51

YES! Four minutes miiiight be enough time to put the dishes away so I can go to sleep with a totally clean and tidy kitchen (in a few hours, lol), WOOHOO!!!

 

six minutes. 360 seconds!

 

Is anyone else getting sick of these numbers, lmao?

I mean just normal detergent for washing up dishes, not the stuff that you put inside a dishwasher.  We use a liquid detergent when washing up at the sink, that is the one I use in the shower and it is definitely mild enough for the shower.   For the dishwasher we use those Finish powerball tablets so I don't think you could clean the shower with those! ;)

Six minutes--

 

Put laundry away (except for DD1's stack.  She can get that in the morning).  Wiped up the water the younger two kids splashed during their bath and threw the towel into the dirty clothes to wash tomorrow.

 

4 minutes.
