Day 13 Non-traditional Dusting

Since we have the windows nice and clean, we need to dust the rooms we will be using on Thanksgiving. Today we are going to dust the dining room. But we aren't going to dust it with polish. Instead I want you to use two microfiber cloths and some warm water in a bucket. Yep, that's it. If you have my Green Clean Starter Pack - we are going to use both the blue cloth and the green cloth. The way professionals dust a room is to pick a point and go around the room just once. Put both your cloths in the warm water (you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil for fun) and pick a spot to start. You are going to work - top to bottom - back to front - in a circle around the outside of the room. Use the green cloth to wipe down things like radiators, wood trim and really heavy dust. You want to use the blue cloth on your glass and furniture. Make sure you wring it out really well so it won't leave any water on the furniture. I use my blue cloth to dust my cherry furniture because it only uses a small amount of water and drys very quickly. Save the table in the middle for last and make sure you wipe down the legs of all the chairs and the table. We will have to dust the room once more before Thanksgiving, but it will be a light dusting that will only take 5 minutes. We "dusted" the entire room without spraying one chemical into your air! Breathe easy today!
