I'm so behind on everything this week! I've had something going on every day and night this week and look forward to spending time alone in my bedroom with a paint roller, a chocolaty shade of brown paint, and those lovely paint fumes that will give me a slight buzz.
I've been preparing for our ward's food storage-palooza tonight and am looking forward to seeing everybody's displays! I will for sure, be posting pictures and info!
Last week I managed to clean under my stove. I took some pictures but I'm too lazy to load them right now. Next OCD post, my friends, next post. I actually ended up cleaning under my stove again, yesterday. Yup. I usually don't clean under my stove every week, but Conner somehow learned how to un-twist the twisty thing on the bread and massecured the entire loaf in front of the stove, under the stove and inside of the pot drawer on the stove. Oh how I treasure these moments. (ahem)
Tomorrow I will be cleaning my family room walls and baseboards and on Saturday I will begin to clean out some drawers and cabinets in my kitchen. I will be cleaning out my pantry cabinet and I plan on buying something to control our supply of paper goods, which tends to be thrown in haphazardly. (is that a word?)
A good cleaning solution to cleaning your wood cabinets is a mixture of one part mild, laundry detergent, that especially cuts oil and grease, and two parts warm water. Use a sponge, rag, or non-abrasive scrubber pad to wipe the cabinets.
I usually wipe a lot of my cabinets with soapy water, on a regular basis. I do a "deep clean" every 6 months. A product that I like is a wood cleaning product called Guardsman. It cuts through the grease and grime that builds up on your cabinets! You can purchase it at Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond and at various hardware stores. Another product is Formby's Wood Cleanser. This works very well when there is a lot of grease and ick that has built up. Formby's also has a line of wood care products that will leave your cabinets polished and shiny. Bling! You can purchase this product at your local hardware stores.
*just a little reminder.... you have til midnight, tonight, to charm me with your suggestions on what I should blog about!!!! And let me tell ya, I have been brainstorming on cute ideas of what I will be giving away. It involves something sewn, bought, and cute. Definitely cute! Pass it on!
