Yup, this is one of those posts about cleaning.. and just like the job itself, this post could be never ending. My main focus for this blog post is to simply share some of my favorite cleaning items. Of course, you do not have to be a mom to relate but as a mom, we know, these items tend to get used twice as much (unfortunately).
I am serious when I say cleaning is NEVER ending (URGH!). I swear I clean and the moment I feel good about a clean house, it is a mess again. I only have ONE child. And she’s ONE. All you moms of several children, God bless you. It gives me anxiety even thinking about the cleaning.
Any good house maids around the Knoxville, TN area: drop them my way! HA.
First on the list, (HA I sound like a professional cleaner).. wait, wait, wait.
Before I start, let me make this disclaimer.
I am NOT a professional cleaner. Nor is my house spotless for more than 2 hours. Seriously, ask my friends, family, and babysitters. I can make it look good but being REAL and RAW here (#lifewithlyd), I suck. I can clean, don’t get me wrong. My mama taught me to CLEAN when I do. But I still have not mastered the traits of having a CONSTANTLY clean home ( sorry, Cohl. I love you!)
Back to the list:
#1 SHARK VACCUM
I am obsessed with this vacuum. It is very light weight and does a fantastic job (trust me, I know. My kid is constantly running around eating crackers & gold fish).
I mainly have hard wood but I do have a shaggy area rug & it still does great. There is a ‘hard wood’ option and ‘carpet’ option. With the ‘carpet’ option, spinners kick on. FIVE STAR FROM THIS HOUSE.
This sucker here is the best. When Kaylor is eating and decides she would rather have it on the floor instead of her in her mouth, bam, wet jet it is.
Although it does not vacuum, I still can get my floor damp and mop it into one pile and sweep it all up with my broom. Very light weight and gets the job done efficiently. SCORE!
#3 Multi-Surface Cleaner
I used to use more of a bleach related cleaner. But if you do your fair share of research on that, it is terrible for the body (OPINION).
Have you ever cleaned and you just felt awful afterwards? Like your hands smelled like straight up bleach, headache & just over all exhausted? Yeah, you should check the cleaners you are using, ingredients.
This is more of a natural based cleaner. The smell is not near as harsh but still cleans tough stains and surfaces well. All while giving you the fresh scent.
I purchased mine at Target. That is where I get several of my less harsh cleaning supplies. They seem to keep a good stock at my near by Target.
Your body may thank me later! 🙂
#4 Eufy RoboVac
Okay, this thing is cool. I mean are you ever sitting at work & you think, I need to vacuum when I get home or I would love to just be able to vacuum? (yeah, probably not) but BAM, now you can! All from the works of your phone.
I am serious when I say, I could follow Kaylor around with a vacuum all day long and still not get it all ( My husband would say, well then stop giving her snacks without being in her high chair. But what fun is that?)
I literally, just push start and this sucker goes around my whole house and vacuums. Best invention ever. GET ONE. YOU WONT REGRET IT.
PS: It even cleans under my bed. Yeah.. scary.
Okay, I think that’s enough. Those are the four main products I use DAILY. They are like my best friends- no joke.
Also, please comment or send me a message of your favorite cleaning items. I am always up for new things & items to make my life easier.
I hope this helps you & if not, at least you can laugh, right?
Talk very soon!
Your cleaning professional ( NOT REALLY haha)
