I’ve never really paid that much attention to the tools I was using to clean. (Christine is probably embarrassed to be called my friend right now!) I’m apt to stick with a few washcloths or old burp rags, a toilet brush, and some manpower. I don’t wear gloves. And I don’t use a lot of different cleaners. Some olive oil and lemon juice for dusting. A lot of vinegar everywhere else.
But I’ll admit I have a weak spot for Mrs. Meyers’ cleaners. They just smell SO GOOD. I never knew why until I was reading up for this post: Mrs. Meyers’ products use real essential oils instead of artificial scents. Plus there’s no bleach or chemicals to block the nice scents.
Armed with a couple new Mrs. Meyers products, I decided I needed to tackle one of my most hated cleaning areas: the shower. I can’t show you a before picture of the grout on my shower because it’s too embarrassing. But it was icky. And a washcloth with my normal homemade cleaner wasn’t cutting it.
Enter: Mrs. Meyers’ all-purpose cleaner and a tile-and-grout double-sided brush.
I used 1 tablespoon of cleaner in 4 cups of hot water and attacked the shower in our “master” bathroom. (It’s only master in the sense that it’s attached to our bedroom. At least I don’t have as much to clean!)
Baby, that grout is the cleanest it’s been in a year! Not to mention I feel like I am getting aromatherapy at the same time. (And also a workout – all that scrubbing above head level is hard work.) I love the lemon verbena scent, and despite my husband’s disdain for essential oils (he’s a nut) he didn’t say anything about the scent.
I feel like there must be some hidden world of specialized brushes and cleaning tools that I don’t even know about. I had no idea what a pan scraper was until Christine brought me one and now I don’t think I could wash dishes without one! What other wonders am I missing out on?
