Cleaning Up Your Act
Having said that, I do feel quite virtuous after I clean stuff, and in the end it isn't that bad...and doesn't take all that long, especially if you have the right supplies on hand.
We all need a few excellent housekeeping and cleaning supplies and probably a pair of protective cleaning gloves, too. I remember my mother had yellow rubber gloves that she wore to do the dishes every night, and I probably should think about getting some for myself. They can really keep your hands looking smooth (this is crucial, especially when you're in your 40s like me!). And the right cleaning supplies can help you get jobs done in a hurry - like special brushes and scourers for dishwashing, special dust removers and rechargeable vacuum cleaners.
Happily, you can now order all this stuff online - which is not only convenient and quick, but gives you an excuse to get back on the computer. The laundry can wait ten more minutes, after all.And while you're doing some virtual shopping you can also get some fun household supplies, like Scented air fresheners. I love deciding whether I want the atmosphere at home to be like lemons or lavender or perhaps Sweet Orange. A great scent in the air is the perfect finishing touch to a clean house. I might even toss a sponge up in the air to celebrate that!
