Handprints on the windows. A long smear of something (let’s not start guessing) across the wall. Dust flying in the air when the curtain is pulled back. Do you see where I am going with this?
It’s that time of year again! I LOVE spring cleaning. I love making the list. I love making a plan. I love airing things out and the smell of a clean room.
I make my list and give myself a couple months of finish it. Much easier that way.
Two things that I got off my list already are a shiny sink and a shiny bath tub. This was so incredibly easy to do I just HAVE to share my secret.
This is actually no secret. It is amazingly though.
Two words: baking soda.
Yup- that’s it. That’s the big trick. Dump some baking soda in the kitchen sink, let it sit for a minute then wipe it down with a wet rag. The dirt comes off with zero effort and you are left with a beautiful, shiny sink.
I made William come look at it and tell me how pretty it looked. It was really pretty.
Then I did the same thing with the bath tub and it worked just as well. I coated the bottom of the tub with baking soda and took a wet rag to it. I dipped my wet rag in a little baking soda from the tub and wiped the walls of the shower down, too. A shiny white shower and tub in minutes.
That ring that gets left in the tub from the kids’ baths: gone. That discoloration along the shower walls: gone. Those smudges on the handles: gone.
Bring on the hot baths. It feels so good to settle down into such a clean tub.
Go try it and let me know how it worked for you!
