Honestly, right after we got married and purchased our first home I was OCD about everything. The closets’ had to be in perfect order with clothes hung from lightest to darkest. The pantry had to have all of the labels facing outward and in some sort of order from shortest to tallest. I could walk in any room in the house and know if a picture or knick knack had been slightly moved. However, my children have slowly pulled the OCD plug out of my body. I still require my house to be clean and neat. I do have the children’s toys organized and sorted in specific bins, but to my defense this is to help them know where to put things away. However, I have given up keeping closets’ as organized as the once were. The days I have hung all the clothes, I feel like bragging about it on Facebook! It’s amazing how I have swapped my “don’t touch that” or “put it away this way” attitude for more of a “let’s just keep things tidy attitude.” I am grateful when I can see the children’s floor and the boy’s bathroom doesn’t smell like urine. One day the boys will be grown and out of the house and I can return the house to the way I prefer to keep it. Until then I will do my best to keep the house tidy and encourage the boys to take responsibility in cleaning up behind themselves.
Like I mentioned earlier I do like a clean home. I appreciate it when my glass top stove is streak free, the countertops are spotless and my floors are clean. I want to share with you my favorite product for acheiving the OCD look in half the time…PLEDGE MULTI SURFACE!
Wow, this stuff is great! I love that I can use it on anything, from the electronics, to the windows, to dusting the shelves, cleaning stainless steel items and more. It truly is a multisurface cleaner. I would recommend it to anyone! Especially, busy mothers who want to clean the house but don’t have the time to switch from product to product while cleaning. I used to pull out a bucket full of multiple products to clean the house. The bucket would contain, 409, Glass Plus, Pledge, Swiffer Dusters and Pine Sol. Now, I simply fill the sink to use the Pine Sol for the floor and clean everything else with a rag and Pledge Multi Surface! Its great because I able to acheive the look of being and OCD housekeeper and save time!
