I’m starting a new tradition here at Milkandcuddles. I’m calling it “You cleaned what?!? Wednesday.”
I was inspired by a little spring cleaning I was doing yesterday. I was on the floor wiping down our baseboards. Molly is getting more, and more mobile. And she likes to touch, and then eat- every speck of dirt she can find! I was starting to wipe down the air vent- but my rag kept getting grime on it no matter how much I wiped. So I finally unscrewed the whole vent, soaped it up, and washed it in the sink! But then… I saw all the dirt, and hair and dust balls that were behind the vent! So I had to get out the vacuum attachment to suck it all up.
And I realized that 45 minutes worth of cleaning was totally invisible!! No one that walks in the house will ever notice how clean my air vent is, or appreciate how there are no dust bunnies floating around behind it! But still, sometimes that kind of “hidden” cleaning does need to be done in a house- no matter how thankless a task it may be.
So as extra cleaning motivation, I’m challenging myself each and every Wednesday to find some unexpected or hidden part of the house to clean! I will then post a picture. I’m also inviting all of you to get in on the action!
Do you have suggestions on forgotten about places to clean? Do you disinfect door knobs, or computer keyboards? Tell me! Or, you can grab my button and post about your own Wednesday cleaning adventure! Anything cleaning related will do! We can all get our houses a little cleaner- one Wednesday at a time!!
