One thing I pride myself on is keeping a clean home. Honestly, if my home is not clean I can’t focus. It just drives me absolutely crazy!
HOW I KEEP MY HOUSE CLEAN DAILY
While I don’t deep clean everything in my house each day, I to take steps to keep it neat and tidy. Each morning, we all make our beds and pick up our rooms. I will toss a load of laundry into the machine once the kids are off to school.
Everyone is responsible for putting their breakfast dishes in the dishwasher for me. You eat? You can help me clean up!! Then, I take time to sweep the kitchen floor and if needed, will run a quick vacuum over the carpet too. Nothing can make a home look clean like freshly vacuumed carpets! 😉
In the evening, I ask my family members to all help pick up their own messes before we head off to bed. A quick clean up before we turn in helps us wake to a clean house in the morning. That always starts the day off on the right foot.
My routine is pretty simple for the most part and I don’t deviate much from it. Well, that is, unless we are in the midst of cold and flu season!! During this time of year, I add a disinfecting routine to help prevent household germs from spreading.
MY DISINFECTING ROUTINE
Once I get the initial housework done, I grab my disinfectant spray and go to town. Being that I am sensitive to most products, I have to stick with those that use natural ingredients (or I end up with a migraine). The ones that work best for me are Seventh Generation.
I started out using just their detergent years ago, but keep adding more products – because they are awesome!! I recently tried the Seventh Generation Disinfecting Spray and am in LOVE! It. Is. Awesome.
Seventh Generation Disinfecting Sprays not only eliminate odors but kill cold and flu viruses* on hard, non-porous surfaces (such as doorknobs and light switches, for example). Best of all, their formula requires zero rinsing – just spray and allow it to work!
And, the scent?! Ahhh-mazing! I love how fresh and clean it leaves my home smelling. My favorite is the Fresh Citrus & Thyme. It just screams clean to me when I use it!
Right now, my daily routine is a bit longer. I disinfect the areas of my home that we all touch frequently. This includes doorknobs, light switches, and even the remote control.
*Kills over 99.99% of household germs, specifically: Influenza A virus, H1N1, Rhinovirus type 37, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enterica, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli on hard, non-porous surfaces.
