cleaning

You might think I’m talking about your actual bathroom. But today, it’s about you… keeping YOU clean and fresh in the bathroom! I just posted about how Cottonelle was the title sponsor for the big fun party I host SocialLuxe Lounge. It was so much fun to work with them. See some of the silliness that […]

Drip Dry “D-I-Y”

by Sabrena on April 18, 2013

A few years ago, our dryer broke. And because our dryer broke twenty-plus of my sons “nappies” suddenly needed to find a home before they were useable again. It was also early Spring. Since it snows well into May in Utah, I set up make shift clotheslines in our sun room and let nature do […]

It’s that time of year… time for Spring Cleaning! As soon as the warmer weather hits, I have the sudden urge to unclutter my entire house. Does anyone else feel that way? I always start with the closets first and move my way around through each room. Today I’m going to show you some quick […]

A Greener Cleaner

by Sabrena on March 15, 2012

“We are an awesome team,” Holden my three year exclaimed. “Like ninjas!” He told me proudly. I had just thanked him for his help with mopping our hard wood floors. And yes, he really does help. He squirts the Method wood floor cleaner, and I wipe it down. It’s a really great system. And I […]

We’ve collected a lot of toys over the last 8 years of having children and our playroom was at it’s limit with clutter. We decided it was time to make some big decisions and clean it out, I mean really clean it out. After deciding what toys the kids haven’t played with in a long […]

Every year for Christmas, my Mom gives each child a gift bag full of little odds and ends. And there’s usually our annual steel wool scrubber. It must be something from her generation, because I don’t know too many people who use these. But they are a great cleaning tool, perfect for scrubbing off those […]

As I’ve been reading up Simple Mom’s posts about spring cleaning,  I couldn’t be more inspired to do some cleaning of my own. I’m a little late to her Spring Clean Party, but better late than never, right? Especially after I tried to cram another box of cereal into this closet and then opened it […]

Carina is a fun friend of mine who writes a hilarious blog at The Jet Set and a lovely architectural design blog at Mid-Century Modern Utah. Today she’s sharing a magic trick with us, well that’s what I think it is. It’s an amazing microwave cleaning tip, making all that yucky stuck on grim disappear! […]

Cleaning Your Toothbrush

by Marie on June 17, 2008

For something that goes in my mouth everyday, you’d think I’d be more eager to have it super clean and sanitary. I tend to put my toothbrush back in it’s little white basket when I am done, not really thinking about germs. But thanks to my Bro-in-Law Brian, I’ve learned how easy it can be […]

Not So Pearly White Sink

by Marie on November 2, 2007

I have a white porcelain kitchen sink. That should be all I have to tell you in realizing my cleaning dilemma. It gets so gross looking, but I promise it’s clean. There are food stains and metal dish marks that won’t come off. I tried everything to clean it, bleach, comet, scruffy scrubbers, and nothing. […]

Mops are Popping my Top

by Marie on October 19, 2007

I have gone through every mop there is. I need some help in choosing a new one. I like to “deep clean” mop every so often, but then I like to “clean up” mop a couple times a week. I have tile and the grout kills me, so at times I have to put my […]

The Cleaning Lady Came Today

by Marie on October 5, 2007

That’s me. But if I had a cleaning lady, she too would tell you to go out and buy the Magic Eraser. I got to cleaning the walls in my house, it looks as if I have wallpaper when I don’t. The Magic Eraser takes it all off, back to looking like it should. It’s […]
