    One of my favorite dusters is a paintbrush! It's great for lampshades and getting into cracks and crevices. Make sure the bristles are soft

Saturday—

  • Family Fun Day—Work or Play Together as a Family and Make It Fun!

Daily in Your Bathroom–under 2 minutes

  • Wipe out the sink (30 seconds) I keep a stack of white washcloths under the sink and use them to wipe out the sink and wipe down the counters at least once a day. Develop the habit of wiping out the sink after every use and it will stay clean.
  • Wipe off the toilet seat and rim (20 seconds)
  • Swish the toilet bowl with a toilet brush (20 seconds)
  • Polish the mirror and faucet (20 seconds)
  • Keep a squeegee in the shower and squeegee the surfaces immediately after your shower or use a shower spray (20 seconds)
  • I went to a Norwex  Party last night.  I enjoyed the demonstration of the microfiber cloths. I now plan to wipe down my tub/shower each day with the microfiber cloth. No cleaning chemicals are needed with the microfiber cloths. The mirror/window cloth works well on the window and mirror. While the cloths are pricey, eliminating the need for paper towels and a variety of cleaning products will more than offset the cost over time as well as removing potentially harmful chemicals from your home.
