I am a slacker mom. No, no. Let me clarify that. I am THE Slacker Mom – the Patron Saint of Slacker Moms, if you will. I am beyond lazy. Look I adore my family and I’m grateful to be able to work from home but I am definitely NOT the kind of mom who plans elaborate parties to celebrate half-birthdays or creates a learning center in the corner or my beautifully landscaped yard for the neighborhood kids. Frankly, you’ll be lucky if you come to my house before 5PM and find me with my teeth brushed. So, keeping my house “company clean” at all times is… not gonna happen (I salute those of you who do though!). So, I’ve spent the last few years finding products that can quickly and effectively make my house shine. And with the help of Costco, Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, Dawn Platinum Advanced Power, and Cascade Complete Action Pacs, I’ve perfected what I like to call, “The Slacker Mom’s Guide To Getting Your House Company Clean in 20 Minutes”.
Here’s how I do it:
Step One: Use a spray bottle to mix ½ Cup Dawn Platinum Advanced Power with 1 ½ Cup hot vinegar and shake to mix. Use this mixture on sinks, toilet, and bathtub/shower. Leave the mixture on and walk away. The smell is… special but the combination of vinegar and Dawn is the ultimate one-two cleaning punch.
Step Two: Use the Mr. Clean Magic Erasers to hit any grossness on your furniture (yes, even the upholstered pieces). Then, hit any super gross goo stuck to your appliances and/or floors. The best part is that you can rinse and reuse the Magic Erasers multiple times.
Step Three: Load the dishwasher and use the Cascade Complete Action Pacs to run a load. No need to pre-rinse the dishes because these pacs can clean ANYTHING.
Step Four: Rinse/wipe off the spray mixture from the bathroom and kitchen fixtures. The dirt and grime wipes right off! Use the wet rag to wipe down your counters/appliances as needed.
Step Five: Sweep or vacuum the floors that people can see. FYI, this is a great project for the kids to do.
I have to tell you, as my longtime readers know; I only use a handful of non-homemade cleaning products in my home and the three mentioned in this post? Are, straight-up, the ones I keep on hand. They simply WORK. Fast, easy-to-use, and incredibly effective.
