Pin #19: Clean Your Whole House in an Hour? What??

IMG_0641 I really dislike cleaning!  My poor family will back me up on this statement!

The only way I can survive a few hours of cleaning is by listening to my Otis Redding playlist.  Thank you daughter dear! She’s a real problem solver!

I have cleaning rules:  I will not clean on the weekends or on sunny days.  I want to get it over with quickly without losing my cool!

So, when I saw this Pinterest pin, I was up for the challenge.  I am, after all, homebound, due to a Southern ice storm.

I followed the pinner’s advice starting with the bedrooms and had a good sweat going by the time I finished them!

Next, I tackled the bathrooms. They are now sparkling clean!  Whew, I’m going to need the shower when I’m finished. Now I’m really sweating!

Moving downstairs, I quickly finished the dusting and cleanup of the living room and dining room.  Luckily, they were not too cluttered!

My kitchen is small so it is usually easy to clean.  I didn’t have many dishes, so I just washed them instead of loading the dishwasher.  I didn’t dry them.  This is another one of my many rules about cleaning!  I’m a stacker!

Finally, I madly raced around the house vacuuming or mopping all of the floors!  I even had time to throw in a load of towels before looking at my timer!

I did go 3 minutes over the hour limit but I’m blaming the towels!
