A little time taken to care for the small things and details around the house should be done in slow motion because going about taking care of the little details around the home makes all the difference in the world. As it makes things look so much more appealing and sparkly.
A small caddy that contains a container of Clorox wipes, a small spray bottle of all purpose cleaner, 5 or 6 toothbrushes (labeled,) a fine tooth comb (labeled,) a roll of paper towels, plastic gloves and a small plastic garbage bag.
So with a small caddy in hand and toothbrushes………
*Clean around the faucet crevices, light fixtures and toilet paper holder in the bathrooms.
*In the kitchen clean around the faucet crevices and any other little detailing that needs to be done like the crevices of stove top covers.
*Clean all TV remotes and computer keyboards and crevices.
*Then clean the crevices of the lamps, lamp shades and the on and off switch plates in every room.
*As for the cute little baby dolls in the home, clean and dust off and around the eyes, faces and hair as they get dusty sitting out in the open around the house.
*Put a fine tooth comb to the stiff plastic fibers of the brooms, removing all lint, hair and gunk that can accumulate in a broom. I am very impressed with how well a fine tooth comb helps clean brooms and to let the bristles soak in a bucket of hot soapy water and bleach or some disinfectant and wallah!!! they look almost brand new again.
Saving all the free toothbrushes from the dentist and labeling them for instance… “for bath only” is ideal so no one uses them by mistake, nor are they used for other jobs mistakenly as one is used only for the bathrooms, another for only the kitchen and so on and so forth and they get cleaned and soaked in disinfectant or a bleach solution then rinsed after each use. Also label the comb as well “for cleaning brooms only” too.
Yes, going about detailing makes house keeping so much easier, less time consuming and makes for a home that appears so much more cared for then it really is. The home appears a little bit more cleaner and appealing to the eyes. It’s all in the maintenance baby!
