As I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve been listening to Mrs Hinch’s book Hinch Yourself Happy over the last week or so and it’s given me the kick I need to start a more regular house clean. I decided to try out the Zoflora disinfectant fragrances that she keeps talking about. I also ordered two plastic spray bottles to make diluted solutions out of a couple of them (more bottles on order).
My youngest daughter helped me dilute them – we put linen fresh in the blue bottle and midnight blooms in the green one and we cleaned a sink in each bathroom to see which one we liked best.
They both smelt good and the fresh and pleasant smell lingers as they eliminate bad odours. I also used midnight bloom for the kitchen surfaces and then diluted a capful in hot water to do the kitchen floor. It’s looking and smelling good.
I’ve now ordered Zoflora Springtime which is Mrs Hinch’s favourite along with two more plastic bottles. It’s definitely making the kitchen smell more pleasant but that might also have something to do with the fact that I’m keeping on top of things in there as well.
Other progress today
BINS: It’s Monday so after work I sorted out the rubbish and dragged the bin round the back. I was pleased that I’ve managed to fill two large black sacks from more decluttering (and that’s not recycling either as that all goes in the green bins). I went around and topped up the black sacks by emptying the bins in all rooms. I even managed to fill a bag with unwanted polystyrene that I found in the garage.
KITCHEN: My eldest daughter helped me clean the kitchen this evening and was fascinated by the dishmatic washing up brush that I bought. She made some patterns while she scrubbed.
As long as she helps clean, I don’t mind how she does it. I’m just very grateful for the help. Her words were ‘it’s not fair that you have to do it all’. Ahhh 😌 how sweet.
UTILITY ROOM FLOOR: I started to tidy the floor in the utility room but I only did some of it. Firstly because I didn’t know where to put it all and secondly because we wanted to sit down as a family and watch something together.
That’s it for today. Hope you’ve all had a good Monday.
