I'm kind of a clean-freak.
I blame my mother.
I grew up in a house that was pretty much always spotless; my mom was obsessed with clean floors, and it seems that she passed that OCD gene onto me. I love vacuuming (I love you Dyson!) and I try to keep our linoleum floors as clean as possible (this is difficult when I'm the only one in the house who cares about such things. I remember before we got married when Jeff was living in NY and being shocked at how dirty their bathroom floor was...)
Though I don't mind regular household cleaning products, when it comes to things that my kids interact with regularly (bathtub, bathroom sink, floors) I have been trying to be conscious of limiting their exposure to toxic chemicals and such. So, here's what I've been trying to use to clean in those areas:
- Baking soda
- Lemon juice
- That's it.
And for those of you who don't care at all about how I clean my house, here's a picture of Jeff's old, before-we-got-married apartment, dug up from the depths of our computer files. (It doesn't really have anything to do with household cleaning products but remember when I mentioned how it wasn't very clean, way back in paragraph 3???) I don't know why Jeff took a picture of me looking like I'm praying. Maybe I'm meditating in the midst of all the mess...
