Clean, clean, clean
it's a way of life. my grandparents were all about that old school life, where the women do the cleaning
so from a young age, I was the only one doing the house work for the entire house ninja
Yeah I go for the cheapest gloves possible. I use them daily, so I have to replace them every few week, but they're only a couple dollars a pair
For the heavy duty gloves, I just rinse them and dry them, never actually cleaned them lol
we need them for regular clothes and sheets here, because it's sooo dry
otherwise, we'd be getting shocked, by everything. but towels just get a regular dry, no sheets
and another thing, to save on bills and time in the dryer/washer, I always put everything in on gentle cycles
then dry them halfway, and use some hanging dry things for clothes and let them dry over the rest of the day
we get nasty shower mold still, but that stuff destroyed the mildew that was on it xD
I was so happy, I could see through the shower door!!
basic tips are still good though, I'm pretty forgetful so every little bit helps!
last time I tried washing a pillow, it got ruined emo so I'll try again, but might go google the best way to
I LOVE MAGIC ERASERS!!!
they get rid of scruff marks on the floor instantly, I have one handy in the kitchen for all kinds of things
mr. clean is bae
sink mold/mildew strikes again!! argh! I'll keep trying to find a solution, maybe that bar keepers friends might work. idk
also, never buy dusters or swiffer dusters again. (if you do)
I bought a cloth + rewashable duster with an extendable handle almost three years ago and it's still in perfect shape
just toss it in with the next load of laundry and bam, you done
no more wasting money on refills for a duster >biggrin
I am a clean freak, though sometimes I let things get just a bit messy before I go wild and clean the entire house
I will say that wearing gloves is a must at all times. I used to not care but it's clear that it dries your hand out like CRAZY
if you've ever seen dextor's laboratory, I have his mom's gloves basically and I just pretend I'm her, voice and everything (that badonkadonk exclaim )
same for clothes, wearing old things you dgaf about helps.
And never dry towels with dryer sheets, even if they get hella staticy.
my grandparents did that for some reason and after I stopped, I realized they could adsorb so much more water if you don't use dryer sheets
Also, Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser and Polish
it's a god send, but a pain to use. it literally washed away years of gross mildew mess our former tenants left on the shower's sliding doors.
