You work hard all week. Monday to Friday, you’re in a routine almost — dropping the kids off at school, sticking around in traffic for an hour before getting to work, picking up groceries after you clock out, and then getting home to feed the family and then spend some time with your partner. There’s no time for much else other than the necessities during the weekdays.
So, when the weekend arrives, you’re relieved but also dreading a hefty to-do list that piles up over the week. It can be running errands for a friend’s party, finally getting around to all that laundry, and not to mention, cleaning the house — that’s a big one!
Keeping a house clean can be one heck of a challenge, and to be honest, include me in the group of people who are not very good at it. I mean, it’s not that I can’t clean, it’s just that I’m lazy about it. So if you show up at my house unannounced, there’s a very high possibility that it will be very dirty and untidy. You’ll find clothes all over the floor, dust on pretty much everything, and the washroom? Ugh… washrooms are the worst!
I’m definitely not the only one that absolutely hates cleaning the washroom. Ironically, with all of the gross germs that it harbors, the washroom may very well be the place that needs the most cleaning. Also, it involves the harshest chemicals! So when I finally do force myself to clean my washrooms, what’s the best, most environmentally-friendly and most efficient way to do it?
