Sweet or Not Great Tips


Not such a sweet topic today. . . House Cleaning.  Yuck!

I was planning a post about doing a little house cleaning here on the blog.  And while I was thinking I thought I would see what I could find on Pinterest about House cleaning.   Not too sweet but . . .
Easy to fill bucket that doesn't fit in the sink.
This is brilliant! Perfect for the bathroom. I have this problem in my classroom. Now I can fill water play bins fast!

Today I am planning on working on the blog. Cleaning up a little adding something new. Visiting. And as always laundry is going and house work never stops. Before the work lets get some help!

I am going to try this one today!

Here's another tip I need to try . . .

I did something similar.  I used my vented brush.  I work but I bet this works better!

And here's another one I need to remember.   I have thrown away good knifes for this reason . . .
diy home sweet home: 21 Spring Cleaning Tips & Tricks....Most of these are compatible with natural cleaning....I don't use ammonia, however.
Here's the link to the bloggers post.  And there are other tips too.

And then I found the coolest blog from a Pin.  Took awhile to find the actual post but it was worth it to scan the other posts!

There are some really cool tips.  I love this blogger.  She mentioned in this post that a lot of her organizing tips came from Emalie Barnes.  Have you read her books?  I read them years ago when I was a younger mom.  They are great.  I still have a couple of devotionals that I read over and over. 

Well now that I have been reminded of all these great ideas and tips I am inspired.  Maybe I'll be so inspired I'll even do a house tour!

And using all these tips I know my little house will be all ready for Christmas guests!
