This is the way we wash...

Ewww. So what have I been doing today? (and in the last couple of weeks) - cleaning a few things in the new house (1915 isn't new, but we are newly moved in) and trying to get settled. Homemaking is really not my forte, so it is a bit of a slow and tedious process. Here's an example before and after just as proof of something. Simple ingredients vinegar, baking soda, soap and water and scrubbing, scrubbing scrubbing, not my favourite. Unfortunately it is just the tip of the iceberg.

I must say a big thanks to my sweet husband, using his skills to get the house ship shape - like unpacking the kitchen. He is the reason anything gets done around here and I adore him!

That is amazing! I love cleaning...I'm weird. Your before/after pictures are leaving me strangely satisfied considering I had nothing to do with the mess or the cleaning!!!

I hear ya on the not liking to clean and scrub and see there is more to do. YUCK! Especially when it's someone elses mess. Good for you though at getting in there and getting it done. Good you have a good husband.

When cleaning, simple is better. You just proved it.

Although I gotta say I am not such a big fan of the elbow grease sometimes required. Lazy I am.

Glad you are all settled and 1915? Wow, it must be amazing!
