Yesterday morning I was making waffles for breakfast and when I went into the pantry to get the syrup. I must have not had a good grip on the bottle because I dropped it, the bottom cracked and busted, (fortunately it was a plastic bottle and not glass), and syrup went everywhere.
Man was I dreading having to clean that up! Fortunately we still had more syrup so I finished breakfast and then went back to clean up the mess. I had washed my hands after, (well before to, ha), eating and had dried them with a paper towel which was now damp so I swiped it across the syrup and of course it just smeared it more which was what I expected.
So I went and got a purple rag, got it wet with hot water and went at it with a little elbow grease. Probably 3 or 4 rinses of the rag and all the syrup was easily cleared away. And I had only used hot water on purpose just to see if the floor would still feel sticky. I went back an hour later, bare footed on purpose again, and you couldn’t tell anything had been there!
I love our rags! I keep one in the car, in my bathroom, under my chair at work and in my purse to clean my glasses!
We put together a new package for February’s Habit of the Month: The Decluttering Package.
