Spring Cleaning Tips

Ok so they say cleanliness is next to godliness, well if that is the case then I’m gonna be stuck in purgatory for a long time! I used to have what I call a Domestic Goddess come in every 2 weeks but that is not in the budget right now so I am on my own. I do mean on my own literally because I am the only female in a house with 2 slobs and a 3 year old who does hold some promise. I’m determined to figure out how to be a June Cleaver in a Rosanne Barr world (yea I know keep dreamin right) So I’ve scoured the internet to find some great spring cleaning tips to help us both out.
 Tips to get you motivated to clean!
Our home is what I call a 5, 4 and a door, 5 windows on top, 4 on the bottom and a door stuck in there somewhere. It is a traditional southern home and our townis filled with this style home.

 
My husband works from home so we thought when we bought this house we would need more room. Well more room means more work cleaning and I have a hard time keeping up. I swear as soon as I get the first floor done and move to the top it looks like I didn’t clean at all.  It’s just hard to keep up, it’s exhausting really and sometimes I just want to give up!

    I think breaking up the cleaning daily helps tremendously! Otherwise if the whole house needs cleaning I dread it! I also find a "family cleanup" helps knock a lot out in a shorter time.

    I just went thru the post that “how to clean your ceiling fan”. It is simply a cool idea. If we use a pillowcase then we can wipe off the dust into the cover. Great tip.
