What is a Swish?

What exactly is swish and swipe?

I think I get the swipe part, but what is the swish? It stops me from even trying because I cannot picture the task.

Please advise! Kathy

Dear Kathy,

Now for the most dreaded job in your home. No one likes to do this but when you do it every day you can keep stuff from growing in the toilet: Swish. Everyone deserves to have a clean toilet.

You don’t even need to use a harsh cleaner. I have used the brush and nothing else. I keep my toilet bowl brush (Rubba Swisha) sitting in a crock. This is similar to the kitchen utensils holders we have gotten rid of in our kitchens. You can also use an old vase you have hiding under your kitchen sink. Now you can’t do this if you have children or pets. I fill my crock with old shampoo (I didn’t like) or slivers of old soap bars and water.

Soap is soap in my book and anything will clean a toilet if you do it every day. All you have to do is pick up your toilet bowl brush (I have one in every bathroom in our home) and scrub the inside of your toilet. After you do this put it back into its holder and wipe down the back, seat, and sides of the toilet with that paper towel or a piece of toilet paper you are holding.

This all takes a grand total of 30 seconds to do this; from the mirror to the floor with a Swish and a Swipe and you are done! Do you see how simple this really is? In a minute you have cleaned your bathroom.

If you have more than one bathroom, then each time you need to potty use a different bathroom. Always keep a Rubba Swisha, bottle of Windex and a Purple rag or paper towels in each bathroom this keeps you from procrastinating.

Here is a short list to post on your mirror to remind you!

1. Wipe Mirror
2. Put away Stuff
3. Wipe Counter
4. Swish Toilet
5. Wipe Seat
6. Wipe Floor
