With less sunlight, colder temperatures, and shorter days ahead, it’s a good time to cross those last-minute maintenance items off your homeowner to-do list.
The phone rings. It’s your relatives.
They are in the area and they thought they would drop by to say hello.
Is it OK if they come to visit in about 15 minutes?
You say that is fine and hang up the phone, and then look around in horror at the state of your house. How will you ever make it presentable for guests at such short notice?
The dust bunnies in the corners are starting to stare back at you, and you need to take a running jump onto your bed to make it over the mountain of dirty clothes. You forget what color the floor in the kitchen was originally under all of the dirt, and you have gotten into the habit of eating dinner straight out of the pan because all of the plates have caked on grime. You know that you need to clean the house, but you never get to the task because cleaning is so boring!
The weekend is finally here and you are exhausted from a busy week. You are looking forward to sleeping late and lounging around the house, enjoying your day off. However, the sink-full of dirty dishes is staring you in the face, the shower is in desperate need of a scrub, and the dust creatures under the couch are starting to growl at you. Oh well, looks like another Sunday will be spent cleaning the house again!
Using baking soda to clean will also save you a lot of money, because it is much less expensive than brand name cleaning products especially when purchased in bulk. It is also non-toxic and so is a lot healthier for your family and your environment.
