This week I plan on washing the walls and baseboards in our mud room/laundry room. This room tends to collect the most dirt because it's the entry to our house that we use the majority of the time.
I would like to say that I will be finished painting my bedroom this week, but I doubt I will. It's taking me FOREVER! And it's all HIS fault that it's taking so long.
As promised, I have pics of my cleaning behind the stove excursion.
I have to be honest with you, I feared what had been lurking behind my stove. It had been a while since I cleaned behind there and I imagined shriveled up mouse carcasses, old food particles, splash and splatter stains, and legos. Lots and lots of legos.
Ahhhhhhhhhh! (horrific scream)
So I didn't find any mouse carcasses, or even too much food particles. Except for maybe that brown thingy in the upper left corner. I don't know what that is, and I wasn't about to pick it up and dissect it. Hey, that's where my lip gloss went and my sewing tape measure! I also found lots of dust. Lots and lots of dust. Blech!
The first thing that I did was wipe down the entire stove. Sides and back. Surprisingly, it wasn't too bad. Then I swept the floor and wiped the walls down with a dish rag and good 'ol soapy water. It cleaned it a little, but I noticed even when I scrubbed hard, there was still some grease and grime that was not coming off. Grrrrrr. That meant I had to get the big guns out. I added some ammonia, vinegar, and a little baking soda to the soapy water and scrubbed with my trusty 'ol magic eraser. (sigh) Inner peace.
You be the judge....
This is my dish rag that I used to scrub, with all of my might, the wall behind the stove and the bottom of my microwave. It just wasn't cuttin' it.
After I had scrubbed every inch of the wall, stove, and underneath the microwave, I mopped the floor. I can sleep in peace now.
