  1. Wow, what a huge list! I’ll definitely be trying some of these this year. Especially the glass door in the oven, that’s one I’ve been struggling with for a while.

    1. Thanks! I’m a huge fan of making life a little easier, so I’m always looking for good cleaning tips! Good luck!

  2. I really liked your tip to keep a weekly cleaning schedule. I’m a very scheduled person, so it’s difficult for me to just take the time to clean any of the rooms in my house without setting a specific time to clean it. That must be why there are some rooms in my house that are cleaner than other. Keeping a weekly cleaning schedule for each room in my house seems like an excellent way for me to take the time to clean.
