July Habit #23 I Want to Swish and Swipe

Dear FlyLady,

I have finally found a way to trick myself into enjoying the Swish and Swipe!

Because of the well water we use, I have hard water stains build up easily in tub, sink, and toilet. It is a real challenge to get rid of the ones in the toilet no matter what cleaner I use. So, I went to the store, bought a pumice stick and used elbow grease to wipe out those ugly stains in the toilet. It took a lot of scrubbing. Then, I cleaned the toilet with the regular cleaner I use.

What was different?

Now, I realize with that sparkling toilet, I WANT to Swish and Swipe! Before, I was just swishing and swiping and not seeing very much for doing so. Of course, the old way, I knew the toilet was clean, but now it sparkles. I know this might hinge on the “perfection” thing, but I really did need to results.

Thank you for your encouragement and tips!
