A Clean House Makes a Happy Mom


I’ve been blogging now for almost three years. When I began blogging I had no idea the change it was going to bring to my life or the time it would take away from chores and errands I usually run. One of the best things I ever did after two years of blogging was hire a cleaning service to come in once a week. If the truth be told I could definitely use a cleaning service weekly, however I definitely can not afford such a cost.  So instead I have someone come in once a month to really get my floors and bathrooms while I spend a little less time maintaining it during the rest of the month.

I absolutely LOVE the feeling of a clean house. When my floors are mopped, dishes are done, and everything is in its place. I feel so relaxed and less rushed on the weekends when my home is clean. It is great when the cleaning service comes during the day and I come home to a sparkling clean house. In between those cleanings the family pitches in to keep things straightened and presentable. This means that I do still have to wipe down counters, clean toilets, and dust and vacuum.

One strange thing about our house is we have NO screens in our windows and doors. It isn’t all that strange as much as the landlord just has no desire to add them. This means when I do clean it is best if I don’t use a harsh smelling cleaner because I can’t open the windows to air out the house. Of course if it is summer in South Florida I have no desire to open the house anyway!

Usually when I think of really cleaning I think bleach. I use to purchase Soft Scrub with bleach to clean everything. However I was so afraid of getting it on my clothes or inhaling such harsh chemicals. I was recently given a free bottle of Lysol Power & Free to test and review.

Lysol Power & Free uses the power of hydrogen peroxide to release thousands of microbubbles to penetrate and dissolve tough stains for a powerful clean without the harshness of bleach

Due to the lack of bleach and the hydrogen peroxide I wasn’t sure what to expect. So I sprayed it into my bathroom sink to clean and waited to smell the first scent of cleaner, but nothing came. I bent all the way down into the sink and still only smelled a slight pleasant order. I was surprised I honestly have never used a cleaner with little to no smell.
