I absolutely DO NOT LIKE cleaning our bathroom. Typically, this is how it gets cleaned: I will go in and pick clothes/toys/whatever the children drag in there off the floor. I will also clear off the bathroom counter, as I fully admit that 90% of the mess there is mine.
And then I have Tim go in to do the cleaning. This division of labor started when I was first pregnant with Darah 4 years ago. The reason we started it was because the cleaning products we used were unsafe for pregnant women to inhale.
Which of course, got me thinking: if they were unsafe for pregnant women, weren’t they really unsafe for everyone???
That’s when we made the switch over to more eco-friendly cleaning products. I have been using CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner for a few years now, and have been extremely impressed with it. I gave it a try because I read that it had been given the “Design for the Environment” designation by the Environmental Protection Agency. It is most definitely safe for everyone in the house, including small children and pets.
When I use CLR in the kitchen, I have found it to work just as fast as my old products, only minus the strong smells. While I typically spray my cleaners on the counters and let them sit for a few minutes before wiping, I have found that to not be necessary with CLR. I really appreciate how quickly and effectively it takes care of the dirt and crud on our counters. Tim likes using it in the bathroom because it knocks out the soap scum in the tub. While I don’t have experience with lim deposits and hard water stains, CLR is also said to make short work of those, as well.
Once we eliminated the nasty chemicals from our home and replaced them with products like CLR, I lost my excused for not doing the tougher parts of cleaning the bathrooms. Thankfully, Tim has been a sweetheart and never mentioned that fact, and so our little arrangement continues! 🙂
We have been really happy customers of CLR and I definitely recommend you give it a try. Also be sure to follow them on Twitter (@clrcleaners) as they tweet some good cleaning tips and the occasional giveaway!
