I Love a Clean House!

A Clean House is a Happy House

On a recent weekend morning I had to clean my house.  After a long, tiring and stressful week at work it seemed a daunting task.  I gathered all my cleaning supplies together so I could do a thorough job.  I looked around and saw dust, clutter and fingerprints everywhere and my heart sank a little.

This task needed some organization so I grabbed a large basket and walked through the whole house.  I put any item that was not where it belonged, in the basket and put it away when I got to its proper place.  I took a deep breath and walked into the bedroom. The After changing the bed, straightening everything up and putting things away, I got down to the actual cleaning.  I made smudgy marks disappear with a microfiber cloth.  My furniture always shines without polish due to the fabulous job that microfiber does.  I removed cobwebs (even on ceiling fan blades).  I dusted all my collections and I vacuumed the carpet.

After scrubbing the shower and sanitizing the toiletChesapeake VA, Chesapeake Virginia, Norfolk VA, Norfolk Virginia, Viurginia Beach VA, Virginia Beach Virginia I cleaned the floor on my hands and knees.  Luckily, my bathroom floor is not too big! When I clean house, I always take the extra time to shine up all the fixtures until they gleamed.  It’s not any cleaner, but the sparkle is very impressive.

I saved the kitchen for last.

Every night after dinner, I clean the kitchen counter tops, quickly wipe down the cabinets and thoroughly mop the kitchen floor to finish the job.

The Best Part of a Clean House

Then I got to the really great part of why I LOVE a clean house.  I got to stand in the doorway and look around my now perfect home.  Everything sparkled!  The carpet showed  the lovely parallel tracks I made with the vacuum.  I was tired, but gratified.

I slept soundly that night (in my fresh clean sheets) and awoke to my beautiful, clean house.  Of course, the drawback is that as soon as I finished the task, the house began to collect more dirt and dust.  It’s a good thing I enjoy cleaning so much since it is, after all, a weekly job!
