Spring Cleaning

Spring break coincides with my need to spring clean.  I am hosting a bridal shower in a few weeks, which is the perfect motivation I need to deep clean the house.  While Joey takes care of the outside, I’m handling the inside.  My current favorite is this microfiber duster .  Dusting is my least favorite household chore, but it is sure is more fun with a duster that reminds me of a Muppet.  Or three. How can you NOT have fun with this?

Our house is wall-to-wall laminate floors.  This means no carpets to clean, but it also means that ANY debris on the floor shows up.  And with a kid in the house, it’s amazing how much stuff accumulates under the furniture.  Clumps of modeling clay.  Parts from board games.  Cereal.  Change.  Shells (?!?)  All that stuff gets beautifully illuminated every day when that late afternoon sun streams in from our sliding glass doors.  Every few months, I end up moving all the furniture around and vacuuming up the crud. Now, I can use the swivel feature on this broom to sweep underneath the couches and cabinets.  What’s even better, Tyler loves helping.  He loves using the mini brush and dustpan to collect the garbage.

Any time I get the broom out, he’s right there with me.  He even empties the dustpan into the garbage can.  What a great helper!  On occasion, I have caught him dusting on his own.  Of course, he would love the duster even more if it were pink!
