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.
My home is improving by the day and even my 3 children, who have inherited the CHAOS gene from my husband and me, are improving. I just wanted to tell you what motivates me to clean the bathroom each morning – I consider it my selfish act of the day.
I was one of those people that dreaded the bathroom and I would put it off. The bathrooms would not get cleaned for two weeks on average. I know, I know…the longer it goes the worse it will get. So when I got myself in gear I started cleaning a toilet a day before my shower.
Even my kids will do it, when asked. They understand that it is a quick way to keep the bathroom clean, and they don’t mind doing it at all!
I have to be upfront that I haven’t always taken up the challenge of the monthly habit. For one reason, it took about 3 months just to regain the habit of shining my kitchen sink.
When I am upstairs for a reason, I just use that bathroom and give it a Swish and Swipe. Right before company comes, I check it and usually it only takes a Swish and Swipe to get it company ready.
I never walk into my bathrooms that I don’t notice the shining sinks and fixtures. The toilet and rim are clean and the floor is clean. I needn’t be concerned when a guest wants to use the restroom…it is CLEAN, yea!!!
I’m glad that July is here, because Swish and Swipe is something that I really need to re-integrate into my evening routine after my shower.
Okay…I used to think that going through ALL those testimonial e-mails was a WOT (waste of time (; ). I usually breeze/scan through them because I’m a good little flybaby, so I do what I’m told; however, I’m also a wife/mom/teacher/adhd woman, so scanning was as good as it got .
Today, July 5th, the fifth day of the swish and swipe habit, we had tradesmen coming in to pull off some roofing to fix the wiring in the ceiling.
