Clean Houses
Old 10-26-2020, 07:41 AM

If anything positive ever comes out of this pandemic we're in, it is clean houses.

I swear since March I've only been able to buy 3 bottles of bathroom cleaner. People must really be keeping a clean house.

I ventured into Walmart last week and the shelves were empty. But I really need some bathroom cleaner. I won't go from store to store though; I'm too chicken for that even with a mask on.

I also need some kitchen cleaner. I'll probably venture out today or tomorrow and maybe go to Dollar Tree or Dollar General.

I have been using my old fashioned recipes to clean. Solutions of vinegar, baking soda,ammonia, bleach and dish soap (not all together, different recipes for different cleaning of course! No deadly chloromine gas here! ) To do all the cleaning.

I do miss the extra “smell good” of the store bought cleaners.

I do wonder what people are cleaning that they didn't clean before.

I do sanitize the high touch areas and wash my hands whenever we've been out, but other than that my cleaning practices are about the same as they've always been.

People are probably panick-buying because the covid numbers are rising in some areas.

I have started using Simple Green. I get it at Lowe's and use it in every room. Kills germs, better for environment, and I can find it!!!

Thatís funny! I have friends and colleagues posting pictures of their cleaning stash. No one needs 20 bottles of anti bacterial cleaner, 50 containers of wipes, 20 bottles of large hand sanitizer or 15 bottles of Lysol spray. I still canít get Lysol spray.

Um, that's not happening in my house! The cleaning protocol isn't any different (and it might be a little worse- immune to the mess? )

I had ambitious goals at the beginning of this. But, not much has been accomplished. Why clean? No one will know if you clean now or in six months when we can start visiting again (hopefully).

Yes, Dollar Tree has tons of cleaning supplies, at least the one closest to me.

I wonder if people are actually cleaning more or if production is down. I hope it's more cleaning. I usually use general purpose products so I can usually find something in stock. I'm picky about the scent, though.

I love dr. Bronners soap to clean just about everything. I just put a little in a spray bottle with water and it cleans just about everything (it makes tile floors a little too slippery though). Plus it comes in great scents and is non-toxic. AND it is totally in stock.
