It begins!

Spring cleaning, that is…and I take it very seriously!

Today, fifteen paintings received a Murphy's Oil Soap washdown...as it's important to keep painted surfaces clean, and the Murphy's does not harm the acrylics and oils at all!

Yesterday, I used the Murphy’s to wash the outside of my kitchen cabinets.  Though I dust and wipe them down regularly, whatever ingredient is in the natural gas for cooking leaves a yellowy-tan film on everything!  See how they gleam?

I also have forty-four photographs hanging, all of which need to be taken apart (to also clean the underside of the glass--I do that only in Spring) and the frames are washed with the Murphy's.

You can go ahead and say, “She’s a real clean freak!”, but I guarantee all this work pays off.  I remove everything from closets and cabinets, washing down the interiors with the Murphy’s, which I also use to wash all the woodwork, furniture, computer equipment and hardwood floors; I even wipe down the outsides of all my books, CDs and DVDs!

It’s a job, a really long and difficult  job, especially if you’re an ‘old gal’ like me!

So, if I haven’t posted for a day here and there over the next few weeks, you’ll know I’m pretty tired and have no energy left to click out the post.

But…to my way of thinking, a ‘clean home’ is a ‘happy home’,

which also makes for a ‘healthy home’!
