Daily Quick Cleaning Tips- The Bathroom

Wipe out the sink (30 seconds) If you wipe/rinse out the sink after each time you brush your teeth etc. it will stay looking nicer longer. The toothpaste stains tend to build up quickly if you don't keep it rinsed out.

Clean splatters of the mirror (15 seconds) It's easier also to get these splatters off when they happen rathar than waiting til they dry. It's suggested that you can also use the same rag to wipe off the mirror that you use on the sink.

Wipe the toilet seat and rim (15 seconds)

Swoosh the toilet bowl with a brush (15 seconds) If yo see a ring beginning to form inside the toilet give it a quick scrub with the brush.

Wipe down the shower door if you have one (30 seconds) Wipe down glass doors to prevent spotting.

Spray shower and curtain liner with shower mist (15 seconds) This will reduce mildew and soapscum buildup.

Daily, Quick, & Simple Cleaning Tips has a great quick, daily cleaning checklist. It's very simple stuff, that you can do daily to keep each room of your house looking neat. If we keep each room of the house clean daily it wouldn't be as bad when you do the weekly (or how ever often you may do it) major cleaning. Alot of this stuff you may already do daily but I thought the checklist was to good not to share. Today we'll start with the kitchen. If you do everything on this list for the kitchen it will only take less than 10 min. That's not bad to keep your kitchen looking nice. I'll share the checklist for the other parts of the house over the next several days.


-Clear out and wipe down the sink. (5 minutes)

It doesn't take that long to wash a few dishes, if you wash them every day or to pop the dishes in the dishwasher. If you wipe down the sink every time you get food in it or take the dishes out it wouldn't get that dirty.

-Wipe down countertops and stove. (1 minute)

-Wipe problem spots on the floor. (2 minutes)

If you leave the sticky, dirty spots on the floor, they will attract dirt and become more noticeable.

-Fold or hang dishtowels. (30 seconds) Even if they're clean a pile of dishtowels can still look messy.

2 packs of Huggies for $3.13 including tax!

I went back to CVS today hoping they would still have the clearance huggies. Sunday when I was there they only had 2 packs left. Today I went and bought the last 2 packs of clearance diapers. They were Huggies Pure & Natural Newborn. I got both packs for $3.13 including tax. They were signed 50% but they rang up cheaper than that, I think! Love it when that happens. I used 2 of the $1.50 coupons that were in the paper last sunday. The diapers rang up $2.87 each before the coupons. My receipt says I saved $20.24. Diapers are outrageous if you pay full price for them.
