I thought it would be fun to share some cleaning tips with you. It won’t be regular, but I have some pretty good tips, I think.
So, tip #1.
Do your dishcloths smell? For years, I have been putting baking soda in my washer. 1 cup per load. And that has worked, for the most part. But it was starting to not work. I would get them out of the drawer and as soon as I got them wet, they would stink again. And then your hands stink. Ewww.
But since I discovered my newest tip, my dishcloths have never smelt so good. I pull them out and get them wet and smell them and I have a big smile on my face! They smell so fresh and, well, clean! I love to smell them!
So what’s the tip?
I put a bucket under my kitchen sink full of water, with 1 cup of vinegar in it. And every night, after the dishes are done and the kitchen is cleaned up, my dishcloth (and my scrubber) go into the bucket, and new ones are pulled out for the next day.
And then on laundry day, when I wash the rags and towels, I take the bucket and dump everything, including the water/vinegar, into the washer along with the detergent. I then rinse out the bucket and fill it with fresh water and vinegar and put it back under the sink.
I have never been so happy! I know it’s a silly thing to be so happy about, but it’s the little things that make me happy.
