I don't clean
Well, not much anyway. My kitchen and bathroom must be presentable, my bed made, most things that aren't being used, are put away. I used to do silly things like sweep down the walls, dust my furniture daily, polish it every week, vacuum the carpets a couple of times a week. (I hate carpet, if this unit belonged to me I'd rip it out faster than you could say rip) My kitchen floor was washed daily. Heck, I even polished it every few weeks. Then the kids grew up, and I grew lazy. Now, I only sweep down the walls if I notice the dust build-up, or if there's an inspection due. I'll dust the furniture if I'm expecting visitors. Polish it? Hah! The carpets are vacuumed rarely. A dustpan and brush takes care of the crumbs that fall around my chair. So why was I excited to see several packets of Kleenex cleaning products in the swag bag from the Bloggers Conference? Who knows? There are glass and mirror wipes; shower wipes, (cuts through soap scum), and stainless steel wipes. I don't have any stainless steel items, but one of my girls does, so I'll give that packet to her. There's also a dusting cloth from Guardsman, I've used that already and I'm pleased to say it doesn't leave an oily film on the hands like many other impregnated cloths. It rinses clean quite quickly and easily. But, it does fray around the edges, so I'm going to have to stitch a hem on it. I'll get around to trying the other products, when I give the bathroom its weekly wipe down. I'm curious to see if the glass and mirror wipes really do a streak free job. Will the shower wipes cut through soap scum as stated on the packet? But I'm not in any hurry to buzz around and clean like I used to.
