PostHeaderIcon Tips on Tackling Bathroom Mold

If there is one room in my home that I have become crazy with cleaning, it is the bathroom. I have two boys and if you are the Mom of little boys too, that statement should qualify as “nuff said”. Amazing how they can play a video game and get a bowling ball down a hole in the floor the size of a pea but they can’t manage to keep their stuff in the toilet. I’d like to hope that as they get older this will stop. Tell me it does!

You probably don’t want to admit it, or chances are you don’t even know it but, the ugly truth is 100% of homes have mold. This isn’t to say that you are an unclean person or that you don’t clean well enough. The simple fact is that while most cleaners can remove visible dirt, it doesn’t kill the Mold. This kind of grossed me out and made me evaluate the types of cleaners that I have been using. Want to know which one does do the job? The deep-cleaning Tilex® lineup is formulated to attack mold and mildew and cancel the mold show in your bathroom.

PostHeaderIcon Philosophy of Housecleaning

My mother-in-law sent me this today and I would like to dedicate this to my good friend Dawn. I love you for having the same views on cleaning as me!

I don’t do windows because …
I love birds and don’t want one to run into a clean window and get hurt.

I don’t wax floors because …
I am terrified a guest will slip and get hurt then I’ll feel terrible ( plus they may sue me.)

I don’t mind the dust bunnies because …
They are very good company,I have named most of them,and they agree with everything I say.

I don’t disturb cobwebs because…
I want every creature to have a home of their own.

I don’t Spring Clean because…
I love all the seasons and don’t want the others to get jealous

I don’t pull weeds in the garden because ..
I don’t want to get in God’s way, HE is an excellent designer!

I don’t put things away because…
My husband will never be able to find them again.

I don’t do gourmet meals when I entertain because…
I don’t want my guests to stress out over what to make when they invite me over for dinner.

I don’t iron because …
I choose to believe them when they say “Permanent Press”.

I don’t stress much on anything because …
“A Type” personalities die young and I want to stick around and become a wrinkled up crusty ol’ woman!!!

PostHeaderIcon Rubbermaid Reveal Mop (Giveaway)

Save more and waste less with the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop. The microfiber pad is reusable so you no longer have to buy disposable pads. Plus Reveal picks up 50% more dirt and dust per swipe than traditional mops. The Refillable Spray bottle allows you to stop buying expensive solutions and create your own using your favorite household cleaner or use plain hot water.

• Safe to use on all hard floors including vinyl, hardwood, laminate and tile

• The Refillable Spray Bottle allows you to customize your clean. Just mix your favorite solution with water or use plain hot water

• The Microfiber cleaning pad picks up 50% more dirt and dust per swipe than traditional mops

• The Microfiber pads are reusable – simply hand wash or machine wash after using

• Non-battery operated spray trigger allows you to dispense as much or as little solution needed to clean your floor

• Constructed with durable yet lightweight material

I really don’t know where to start with this product! I loved so many things about it! I have owned just about all of the other “types” of this mop from other brands. What sets the Rubbermaid Reveal apart from the “leading” Mops of this type?

  1. Washable Microfiber cleaning pad
  2. Use your own solution! (Great for our eco friendly folks!)
  3. Much wider cleaning path
  4. No Batteries! I love the manual trigger. Easier to control the cleaner.
There are only 2 suggestions I would have for this product. #1 I would love to see some way to lock the handle for storage. It kept falling over on me. #2 I don’t use the same pad in the kitchen and bathroom for obvious reasons. I would like to see maybe pads in different colors or someway to tell the difference when I use them.
