A rather mundane post on cleaning

my cleaning things

Today is my main cleaning day, I think its nice to have the house looking fresh for the weekend, so I get stuck in and clean the bathrooms, toilets, dust, vacuum, mop the floors and anything else I feel needs a clean. I use quite simple things for my cleaning routine:
  • microfibre cloths and old pieces of towel,
  • a scrubbing brush and an old toothbrush,
  • baking soda, (bicarbonate soda),
  • some water soluble essential oils (tea tree, lavender and eucalyptus)
  • and very hot water

My microfibre cloths are colour coded, the bright pink ones are used exclusively for the toilet. The green and blue ones can be used for wiping or drying. I follow the four steps of fresh green cleaning:

  1. wipe it,
  2. soak it,
  3. add it,
  4. dry it

as recommended by Bridget Gardner of Fresh Green Clean here

I found this website really changed my ideas on cleaning.
