If you’re like me January is the time of year you get motivated and start cleaning and organizing everything in your house that doesn’t move! If this sounds like you then you are in the perfect place with 24 posts filled with ideas from some of my favorite blogging friends who will be sharing printables, tips, tricks, recipes,and projects as part of the Ultimate Cleaning & Organization Resource blog hop. Scroll all the way to the bottom of this post for all of the links and more inspiration.
Today, I wanted to share the very basics with you, the Ultimate Cleaning Kit. This kit contains just a few items that are perfect to start with when it comes to cleaning. If they don’t work, then by all means move on to the big guns (the more potent cleaners) but my philosophy is to start with the small stuff and only move on if necessary.
Ultimate Cleaning Kit (contents):
*An all purpose cleaner or a mild dish washing liquid – I use Ivory and mix this in a good quality spray bottle
2 tablespoons of Ivory liquid to 2 cups of warm water – shake well to mix
*A mildly abrasive cleanser or baking soda
*DIY glass cleaner and degreaser
1 part of white vinegar and 1 part of water in a spray bottle
*Microfiber clothes – these are great for scrubbing and I use them daily
Cleaning caddy or bucket to transport supplies
With the 3 ingredients in this Ultimate Cleaning Kit I cleaned ALL of the items below and made the scrubs I used – click the links to find out the specifics as to how I cleaned each of them.
