HEY THERE! Yeah you. Did you know that your house is still a mess? Did you forget that it’s spring and with that comes …. cleaning? If you just jumped out of your chair and ran to grab your dish gloves and apron, then you’re probably not reading this anymore and have all the products you need to get moving on Spring Cleaning. But, if you are still here cringing at that dreaded C-word, it’s really okay. I must tell you that I am a cleaning freak. My in-laws (yeah Claire, I’m talking about you) are always telling me to stop cleaning. But, I have yet to accomplish this springy task. I just haven’t been ready to pull out all my old, nasty, worn down, almost-empty cleaning supplies to do it. I open my cupboard and think “Yuck. I can not use this stuff.” So knowing that spring is almost gone, I needed some inspiration. That’s where our good old friend Etsy comes in. There I came across a hodge-podge of amazing handmade items to really get me -and hopefully you- in the scrubbing, sorting, wiping and storing mood.
First I found this and I must admit…. I am IN LOVE! I mean who wouldn’t want to look fabulous while scrubbing something nasty? I have made some of these myself here, but these designer dish gloves just take the cake. I especially love the fabulous broach that adds a Wham! of glamour.
Oh and if you ever thought that apron couldn’t be sexy…. uhhem…. think again. This little Lacy Apron will definitely keep you feeling like an irresistible french maid. I know my hubby wouldn’t mind coming home to me cleaning the floors in this.
I have seen a ton of these little crouched cleaning scrubbers all over Etsy, but never come across any with a strap which I feel makes it much easier to clean. Love, love, love it!
If I can only say “Love it!” one more time, then I’d use it for this vintage. I don’t know if I need to say anymore. Other than, cleaning supply and wall art? I’ve died and gone to heaven. (Though the price hurts my eyes but the art soothes them back.)
Now this Do-It-All Cleaner is what it says it is. It cleans “it all” while keeping your home smelling fresh and your kids free from toxins. I (and Bonnie) are always looking for great all-natural house cleaners: I for my dogs who will lick and get into anything and her for her boys who pretty much do the same…..
Now these Fabric Storage Bins are so simple it’s not even funny. But they will help you organize anything, anywhere. Plus they are made of 100% cotton so they are soft and safe for children to grab and you can wash them to keep that clean house looking that way all the time. If I were you, I’d grab some different colors and use all one color in one room and another color in a different room. They’d even make for great collecting bins. Just grab a bin and Clean Around the Rosy like our lovely Bonnie!
Here are! Oh I know they don’t look like your average disgusting, afraid-of-where-they’ve-been cleaning rags; that’s because they’re not. I have been so tired of pulling out rags and using them for things like cleaning the toilet or wiping the windows an then washing them only to feel like they might not be as clean as one would hope and not remembering which one I used with the bleach or in a place where no bare hand has gone before. So, I labeled them for you! Plus they are color-coded so it will be easy to spot in the rag stack. Enjoy!
And when you are all done, hang this sign. With kids or dogs or just a slobbish mate you will want to people to at least know that you attempted a clean home.
