|A spotless kitchen|
Since becoming a professional blogger, I have used some version of this to describe myself, "struggling to keep my house clean" because it is true. It is true because I work full time and have two kids. However, it is also true because I generally hate cleaning. (I'd even use an expletive to express my thoughts about cleaning if my mama wasn't my most faithful blog reader!) I've heard Oprah say that she get enormous pleasure from stain removal. In contrast, I get enormous pleasure from reading, writing, and getting pampered. I actually think that some people got the "I love cleaning gene" and others got the "I love hiring people gene".
I think I got the second gene. However, because God has a sense of humor, I don't have the bank account to afford the amount of help that I'd like to employ. Since I am not "of the manor born" and refuse to live in squalor, I am constantly in search of ways to keep my house clean without being stressed about it. For that reason when Ian Hart from The Tidy Maids contacted me about helping me keep my house clean, I was all in. Below are his tips!
