Keeping on top of household cleaning
http://savingmoneyinmytennesseemountainhome.blogspot.com/ I have cut my next nylon scrubbie into 2 pieces. As a whole scrubbie, it's really too big, and I do have big hands! Hopefully this will work out better for me.
While the cleaning service was here, I discovered that one bathroom wastebasket and the large recycling bin in the kitchen both needed cleaning inside. I soaked the smaller, bathroom waste basket in some ammonia and hot water and let it sit. I then scrubbed it with a nylon brush. I emptied the cleaning water into the awating recycling bin, and proceeded to use a rag tied around a butter knife to get into all of the nooks and crannies at the bottom of the waste basket. I then dried it out. I followed the same procedures with the recycling bin. I used lemon ammonia as it was originally used for the former rental, to help strip dirty floor wax off of the kitchen floor tiles. Have to use what I have before I move to all homemade cleaners, if not natural based ones.
