Well. I finally caught up on camp/being out of town for a week laundry last night around 10:00. I made some homemade laundry detergent, combining two different recipes, and so far, so good. I tried liquid homemade laundry detergent about 4 years ago, but I never cared for it. This time I made a powder, and I really like it. I'll give an update after another week (I have to see if our smelly running clothes will get clean and fresh enough).
After reading your comments on the blog and also on my Facebook page, I decided to buy this mop from Amazon. It was cheaper than some of the brands recommended to me. I did not want to invest a lot in a mop, so I felt like this one had really good reviews and was not too expensive either. I did not want a spray mop, nor did I want to buy any special mop spray. I am mixing up my own floor cleaner which is basically water, vinegar, and a few drops of very low cost (bought on Amazon for about $2/bottle) essential oil. So this is the mop I bought.
I love this mop! The handle is all one piece and is made of stainless steel. It also can get longer or shorter, depending on your needs.
The microfiber cloths are just wonderful! I also bought a 3 pack of additional cloths, because I knew the two that the mop came with would not be enough for me to use at one time. The mop head swivels, and just glides across the floor.
I mix up my cleaning solution in a mop bucket and put the 5 microfiber cloths in the bucket. I squeeze out and use one at a time, and then I put the dirty mop cloth away and get out another clean one.
Mopping can be fun!
The shower door. No luck yet on any of my reader suggestions (via in person, this blog, or my Facebook page). I have yet to try one more thing....a paste of Bar Keeper's Friend. I am about to clean the bathrooms, so I will try this.
I have scrubbed all the filmy stuff off my glass shower door. What is left is like hard water droplets stains. So the door is clean and shiny with whitish spots all over it.
I am determined to get that shower door crystal clear!
