Don't they say that the first step on the road to recovery is to admit you have a problem. I have a cleaning supply addiction. I can't help myself. I love the way they smell, the way they make my house look, and each one does something completely different...which is why I have to buy one of EVERYTHING!
I started to make a list of my favorite cleaning supplies for each task. Maybe this way I can just stick with my list, and not have to buy the "new" hot products. =)
floors - The old stand by Pine Sol. I have used Fabuloso (I think that is what it is called...comes in a variety of colors...and is fairly inexpensive), but I think I'm always going to be in love with Pine Sol.
cabinets - Murphy's Oil. It has a great smell, and puts that great shine on dusty cabinets.
tubs and bathroom sinks - I've used a lot of different products, but I always come back to Comet Bathroom Spray. I also use a magic eraser in my bath tubs. It makes all the ding go quickly away!
counter tops - I LOVE 409! The end.
stainless steel - They sell these handy wipe thingy's...just like a Clorox wipe, but for stainless steel of course. Very helpful for all of Savannah's little finger prints. I am pretty sure they are made by Pledge.
toilets - I use the Lysol toilet bowl cleaner w/bleach. Some of these have odd smells, but I like Lysol products in general. The only downside to this one is that if you don't get back to the bowl that day (Okay, sometimes I forget...don't judge me!) the blue stuff doesn't come off very easily. =(
all surfaces - I have already admitted to my love for Clorox wipes, but honestly I should say that I like the Mr Clean wipes better. I bought some new wipes this week, and I like them for my desk at work...They are the Lysol Dual Action wipes. They have a scrubby material on one side, and soft on the other. Great for gross germs that men have left at my desk before I get there! =)
dishwasher - I really like the Electrosol Gel packets. I tried the Dawn gel packets, and wasn't impressed. This is Savannah's job, and her little hands sometimes are a little wet when she gets the packet out. The Dawn packets stuck all together with a little water on them, and made for A HUGE mess! The Electrosol packets do not. Savannah can still help out. Yeah for Mommy!
dishes - I really, really, like the smell of the blue Dawn. I sometimes will just wash my hands with this. Weird huh!? But it does clean my dishes well too!
Of course I could ramble about this stuff for hours. I haven't tried the Green Works stuff...does it work? I want the inside scoop! Fill me in on good cleaning supplies...and they have to smell semi-descent (my nose is SUPER sensitive). Hopefully by getting this out I will just stick with what I know works instead of always needing to try something new! (A girl can always hope.)
