The cleaning kit

Here it is in all its’ glory: spray bottle pink is vinegar, spray bottle green is window cleaner, the bottle on the right is saved for the heavy-duty marks, three microfibre cloths for wiping, windows, dust etc. Mini-scrubber with replaceable heads (it’s a dish mop and this one is saved for bathroom work only!) and in the little jar at the front is bi-carb soda. (I used a sprinkles jar.)

Bi-carb and vinegar work a treat on just about anything (except the most stubborn of stubborn) and I’m happy to say there aren’t too many nasties in my cleaning cupboard anymore.

In preparation for the arrival of the puppy (mystery date at the moment), I moved everything from under the kitchen sink into the cleaning locker. Now this is how it looks:

Cleaning locker top half

Very top shelf has bulk hand towel and toilet paper. Bought as part of school fundraiser, we’re not huge hand towel fans so this bulk pack is taking a while to get through. Second shelf has baskets with dust cloths and floor mops, and all the flammable liquids. Hanging on the top of the inside of the door is the last vacuum bag.

Cleaning locker bottom half

Cleaning kit and some kitchen detergents, floor polish etc. Vacuum cleaner, iron and ironing board, rubbish bags, while the emergency contact paper (in case of consuming poison etc) is above the basket with the carpet cleaner (ie you bash the living daylights out of the carpet) and floor mop head.

Now to print the checklists, shopping lists and put them in the folder 🙂
