Hi , How are you? hope all is well in your world x
I got a little letter from the real estate today, yep as we are only renting this awesome shabby old cottage, the real estate do have to come and do an inspection.
wow I started panicking as we haven't rented for such a long long time, I was a little daunted by the fact that someone is going to come in and inspect my cleaning/living habits, mmmmm well I am not a cottage cleaning goddess but I do love a clean tidy sparkly old cottage.... I have worked with chemical cleaners and to tell the truth am not a big fan of those smelly sudsy nose hair burning products..
So today just a quick one , but I thought I would share with you what I use to keep this shabby old cottage bright, sparkly and smelling fresh :) you have probably heard or used it all before but it doesn't hurt to have a reminder of what this stuff can do.
I will start in the laundry...
I love soft "white" sheets, table cloths and towels
HERE if you would like to try it.
OK now inside, I am hooked on Bicarb, yep good old baking soda.. Sprinkled on carpet 15 Min's before vacuuming will get rid of any unwanted odors, with little Pip living inside this tip has made my life so much sweeter smelling...
A paste of bicarb and a little water will help scrub away grime on stove tops, ovens and in bathrooms and also a great grubby wall cleaner..pretty much where ever you need a cleaner one of these two things or even both mixed together and a little elbow grease will do the job, without burning your nose hairs and giving you a head ache.
in the kitchen I use sunlight soap as a dish washer and rinse with a little white vinegar splashed in the water..
The fridge gets a little bowl full of bicarb put in it and it stays fresh smelling, vanilla is a nice touch added to the cleaning water when wiping the inside of the fridge.
Oh and grease fires can be put out by throwing bicarb on it!
Well that's it from me in this shabby old cottage, I got some sparkling and de-cob webbing, not to mention the weeding and window washing I gotta get done
Until next adventure
