Well, it's official. Over the past six weeks, we have done a thorough heavy cleaning of our entire house. Floors, ceilings, walls, windows. Dusting and scrubbing. Curtains and rugs. Everything. Our home is well on its way to becoming a haven.
Yesterday we cleaned our last two really bad rooms - the bedroom and the master bath. We each still have one thing to do - I need to scrub the outside of the shower door, and hubby needs to scrub the walls (I ran out of energy, and he ran out of Magic Erasers). Those should each take about 10 minutes, though, so that's a piece of cake.
From here on out, it's just maintenance. I'm thinking if we work at it, we can probably each tackle two rooms each week, and keep things looking even nicer. This week we'll have to do that, because my whole family is coming over on Sunday so we'll need to do the kitchen, dining area, living room and hall bath before they get here. So we'll use this as a test case and see how it goes. The more often we do it, the less scrubbing there will be, that's for sure!
