I was not always a clean nut. Today my husband and I are both clean people. We both like modern touches and hate clutter. I will apologize for ‘the mess’ if you drop by and I did not have notice to prefect my home. My mess may consist of today’s mail on the counter and the dog’s toys. I am proud of my home and proud of how we keep it. I can’t sit down and work in clutter or dust and my weekend does not start until I do my Friday deep clean. Fridays is when I bring out the rags and Scott’s Liquid Gold!
We have been raising 3 boys who are ages 12, 23 and 28. Funny story, as clean as we are it does not mean our boys are naturally neat but perhaps a bit of organization and feeling content in cleanliness does rub off as we found in our oldest recently. As he ended a relationship recently we were talking and he realizes that he wants someone with goals and wants someone who takes care of themselves and their space. He said I found myself becoming lazier and someone I’m not. It’s more motivating to be around “someone who is tidy, takes care of their things like I do and as that’s a sign that they will also put that care into a marriage and house and life problems. I just now know who my person is.”
This is exactly why I put care into all things and I see that we have a 20-something young man who see that cleanliness and care, before starting the family and life really starts, says a lot about character and realizes that’s his ‘person’. That is why cleaning is more than picking up toys but it is love for all that share this space in our home or walk into it. I keep my home clean for my own sanity but also for my family and because I just love to put care into all things.
When the Holidays arrive I do my deep clean a bit more often and always add some smelly candles for that ambiance. Fun scents really help my feel like my space is clean and finished. For the deep clean it is easy with Scott’s Liquid Gold One Clean Home. I can use 1 cleaner on multiple surfaces.
This One Clean Home foams in place which I love so there are no streaks no matter what I am wiping down. It has that clean scent I love also. I can start in one room (even my kitchen) and catch dirt spots on walls, doors, tables and counters, appliances, wood cabinets or furniture, glass and more. With 2 stories I keep a bin of cleaners on each level and not having multiple cleaners for each task gives me more room and makes wiping my surfaces quicker.
I still own Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Care because sometimes my wood gets thirsty rather than just dirty. The original can is great to use about once each month or so for wood care. I have several wood pieces of furniture I love and understanding that cleaning wood and caring for wood are 2 different things will keep your pieces looking great for a long time.
It’s been a rough year, so let’s tackle the inside messes and show our family that care we have by helping everyone feel organized and clean again. A good deep clean that is ready for the Holidays even if we can’t fill our home with guests will help us end the year feeling better and organized as we get rid of 2020!
