Making cleaning REALLY fun!


It's officially the last day of school. Are you going to try recruiting your kids for some summertime cleaning? Have any ideas that work for you? I'd love to hear them. Come on - there has to be a way to make cleaning fun. Think like a kid!

Here are some things to help get you started:

We have a Mrs. Meyers Snap Pea Starter Kit to give away!
This can make cleaning really fun. Just go here and follow the directions!

And for something nice and sweet while your cleaning, this recipe is from one of our readers from down South. Thanks Megan.

Southern Sweet Tea

Use 2 large lipton tea bags and two cups of sugar. Put them together in a 2 qt pan. Bring it to a boil and then pour in a 1 gallon jug. Add cold water in jug until full and then stick it in the fridge!

Ta-da! Happy Summertime!

  2. Never tried Mrs. Meyers and I really want to. I love your ideas and am usually so excited to give it a try that I don't comment, thinking that I will come back and let you know. yeah.

    1. Peroxide works like magic on mildew in the shower!

    2. Baking soda!!! I have never been able to get the tub so clean (with 4 kids, three of them teens)
