I am so lucky to have one major extravagance that allows me to keep my working mom sanity: a cleaning crew that comes and cleans my home once in a while. They are brilliant and turn my dust bunny covered world into squeaky clean and shiny floors – led by my saving grace: Grace. I think of myself as a clean-house person by nature, but Grace has really molded my cleaning technique, mostly by steering me towards always having on hand the proper cleaning arsenal. Perhaps it’s not brain surgery for you, but for me – well, let’s just say I needed the proper cleaning product nudge.
So, as to share this list and to collect it here, this is the list of necessities, as molded by Grace:
- A good vacuum for the rugs
- An abundance of rags cut from old and tired towels, sheets, cloth.
- Paper Towels
- Swiffer Dusters (for those pesky blinds and ceiling fans)
- Soft Scrub
- Toilet Bowl Cleaner
- Mr. Clean for Floor
- White Vinegar
And lots of hot water with love.
