I try to maintain a clean house, and it is not always easy to do. Sports equipment, baking sessions, school projects that take over the dining room if not the entire first floor plot against my semblance of order. Luckily I am more about keeping germs at bay (my family thinks I wrote the ad copy for the Purell campaign, the “U Can’t Touch This”) and my husband is the anti-clutter police. We work well together unless he moves some special in process project…which has been known to happen. Here I will explore the lengths to which I go (and sometimes do not go) to keep my house happy, clean and pretty.
I do prefer the most natural products available and I have certain favorites and sometimes I am swayed by pretty packaging (look, something shiny!) but ultimately if it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work.
