Today was my final cleaning task in my two week series of thoroughly cleaning my kitchen. Is it spotless? No. Keeping my kitchen clean is a never-ending task. However, I do feel better now that everything has been deep cleaned. Now, it will just be about maintaining a respectable level of cleanliness. 🙂
This evening I swept and mopped my kitchen floor. This isn’t anything out of the ordinary, but I did want to share how I mop my floor. I use my homemade all-purpose cleaner and a cloth my mom made for me.
I get the cloth wet and put it on my mop. Then I spritz the floor with my cleaner and mop it up. Much easier than a bucket and wet mop. Plus, I don’t have the harmful chemicals that are used in the commercial cleaning cloths.
I usually mop once a week, but probably could every single day due to the mess 5 kids make. How often do you mop your kitchen floor?
One other thing I did that I hadn’t remembered to put on my master cleaning list was to clean all of the light fixtures in my kitchen. I just used a wet rag to clean them.
If you would like to make your own all-purpose natural cleaner here is how. Fill a spray bottle half full of white vinegar and then add water to fill. Add 10-20 drops of an essential oil of your choice, replace the nozzle, and give the bottle a shake. You can use this cleaner for just about any cleaning job you might have from washing your counters to mopping your floor.
Thanks for hanging out with me while I have cleaned my kitchen the past two weeks. If you aren’t repulsed by what you saw then I consider you my true friends. 🙂 Have a great night!
