"Cleaning TIPS and TRICKS"

no need to dust higher than your tallest friend
Stay Focused
set a timer for 30 minutes and get down to business!
Washing the Tub
clean your shower while you're IN the shower!
Cleaning for Guests
if guests are coming in 5 minutes and you only have time
to clean one room, pick the bathroom!
Repurpose Old Clothes
use mis-matched socks to dust with, they fit like a glove!
Wiping Up
baby wipes are perfect for quick cleaning
Removing Food Odors
use 2 tablespoons of baking soda and hot soapy water
 to get out smells from your Tupperware
Turn up the Music
time seems to go faster when you have tunes!
Dusting Lamp Shades
use a lint roller
Removing Stickers
use rubbing alcohol
Be Clutter Free
the less you have, the less you have to dust!
Cleaning Glass
use newspaper instead of paper towels
Get Motivated
setting a deadline is helpful to get you going
don't forget what's most important

I really needed this info! My blog post today was all about the many chores I haven't been able to get to because I haven't felt well in a long time. :( This info helps! Thanks, MaV!
