I'm on the Flylady list and today there was an email from Kelly about doing a "bathroom makeover" by cleaning your bathroom as opposed to spending tons of money (that we don't have) re-doing the tile, painting, buying a new toilet that isn't salmon colored (wish I was making that up
I read through the entire thing and realized . . . . there's practically nothing on her list I have to do! I do have to get a new toilet seat since it cracked but other than that - nothing! I've been on Flylady for over a month now and have my cleaning schedule pretty down pat. The house is not yet completely done, but there's been progress all over and small areas (like the bathroom) are in great shape.
My bathroom counters are cleared (for the first time since the birth of my son I'm sure
: ) and cleaned, the floor is swept, the shower stall is scrubbed, the toilet tank has no clutter on it, the toilet bowl is recently cleaned. Heck, even her suggestion to scrub the outside of the toilet including the bolts that hold it to the floor - DONE! Less than a week ago.
And no marathon, back breaking cleaning sessions. All of it was done little bit by little bit. I use non toxic cleaners so I do some cleaning while my son is in the tub (he's old enough I don't have to have a hand on him but young enough I still stay in the room with him). The shower stall I quickly wipe down with regular soap and my exfoliating gloves every time I take a shower (a variation on Flylady's tip to do it with a washcloth and shampoo). Because of those non-toxic cleaners (mostly baking soda) the kids help me scrub tubs and wipe down cabinet doors (we usually just use water for that!).
I was just so excited this morning when I read that email and realized that I was past that
Which would NOT have been the case if I'd gotten it just two months ago!
