New Year’s Resolution?

How are your resolutions going?  If you’ve already “fallen off the wagon,” don’t beat yourself up.  Maybe your resolutions were unrealistic.   Besides, each new sunrise brings a fresh chance…

(Speaking of, there’s still a chance to nab one of the 2018 Joana Miranda Studio Cartoon Calendars.  Pick yours up here.)

My Favorite Things – A Clean House (and the Products That Make Cleaning Easy!)

I’m one of those people who (usually) can’t do my work until the house is clean.  Unfortunately, these days I’ve been so busy that even cleaning our 840 square foot apartment has to be done in little increments over several days.  And sometimes I resort to “speed cleaning.”  I figure I’m killing two birds with one stone – tidying up AND getting a workout at the same time.

These days, the three miracle cleaning products in my “cleaning bucket” are as follows:

E-cloth Glass and Polishing Cloth – This cloth cleans glass, mirrors and other shiny surfaces with just water.  I keep a small spray bottle of water handy and run around spritzing anything I think needs sprucing up.  Voila!  Gleaming mirrors and shiny surfaces in seconds!  (I got mine at the Vermont Country Store, but you can read more about this product and order yours online here.)

Wenol All Purpose Metal Polish – Though we don’t own much silver, I do like to keep our His and Hers sterling silver napkin rings looking spiffy.  Wenol works wonders on tarnished household silver objects and actually helps keep the objects tarnish-free for longer.  Pick up a tube for yourself here.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Sponge – Even though we’re pretty careful, our white walls end up with the occasional scuff mark (yours would too if you lived in as small a space as we do!)  These sponges do the best job of removing scuff marks and other seemingly impossible to remove dirt off of the walls.  I found that they also did wonders for brightening up the old tile on our bathroom floor.  Make sure you read the directions carefully and do a small patch test.  The sponges can dull the finish of paint or other surfaces.  I bought mine at our local hardware store; you can also order yours online here.

How about you?  Do you have miracle cleaning products I should know about?  I’d love to hear…

Happy Cleaning!
