*It’s time for “The Great Wipe Down”! Clean and sanitize all the light switches, knobs, handles, remotes, etc. in the house.
*BONUS Challenge: Wipe down your washer and dryer from top to bottom and sweep behind them
*Approximate time ~ 15 minutes + 15 minutes for BONUS challenge
*Tips: Clorox or Lysol wipes work great for this challenge. Or, you can use some other disinfectant on a paper towel or wash cloth. Wipe down everything that gets handled….from doorknobs to cabinet knobs to switches on lamps, refrigerator and microwave handles, alarm clocks, remote controls…everything! This is super easy and goes really fast, I promise 🙂
Personal Notes: As I was contemplating what should be cleaned next, I thought about all the colds and flus that have been circling this season. In fact, my husband just got over a cold last week. That got me thinking about how many things get touched in our house before we wash our hands and what kind of germs might be hanging out on our door handles….YIKES! (Ok, yes, I am a bit of a germaphobe but I think sometimes we need to think about these things 🙂 So out came the Clorox wipes and I got to cleaning.
As for the washer and dryer, ours sit out in the garage….yep, thought that was a little strange too coming from Colorado but apparently that’s quite normal here in southern California. Anyway, they get mighty dirty out there and lots of little dust bunnies start collecting behind the machines as well. For some reason, this is a task that I always put off to do another day and it’s really not that difficult of a task. Now that it’s done and the machines are clean, I can breathe a sigh of relief….at least for a few months anyway until the dust builds up again 😉
