I absolutely love a clean house and I am a bit neurotic when it comes to cleanliness or rather I used to be until I became a mama. I think it began when I was a child and every weekend was house cleaning with sweeping of the tile everyday. Although it was tedious and a bit overwhelming to be cleaning all the time, my mother has really instilled a good cleaning ethic in me as an adult.
I hate stepping on crumbs (we don't wear shoes in our home) and dirty granite countertops irk me. I have to admit that although I love a clean house, both Hubs and I aren't the best of cleaners or rather we don't have the stamina to get all the grit and grime that somehow appears.
That's why we have a cleaner come once every two weeks - bless her! Since she's not live-in, the house does get dirty during the two week time period so I happen to wipe down the countertops and vaccum the floors (all hardwood) with my lovely Dyson gifted by my brother. Let me tell you, I've tried every type of floor cleaner/machine to get our floors crumb free but nothing works like a Dyson (besides the cleaner of course).
I also wipe down surfaces with wipes and Kenzie's baby wipes. We used to use Pine-sol growing up and I love the smell. (who knew Hubs did too?) Toilets and Showers are Hubs' territory.
I am constantly wiping the floor if there are crumbs/spills and Kenzie gets made at me if I don't hand her a wipe as well. She also wants to take over the vacuum when I bring it out. She'll even take inanimate toys i.e. plastic golf bag and "vacuum" during the week. It's even to the point when I went to visit my mother in FL and we went out to a restaurant, Kenzie took a wipe and wiped down their windows...I can't wait for her to grow up and do chores!
