yep. blogger really annoys me. it's really unreliable...buuut i suppose that since it's free i shouldnt complain. (i should move to typepad already).
today i am going to clean the house. it's been awhile since i had time to clean more than area in a day, so i think today is the day. i have to head out to restock my cleaning supplies- vinegar, lemons, and a scrub brush. i already have the baking soda, so that's good. i have been cleaning only with natural products for a few months now, although i still want some dish soap and laundry detergent and fabric softeners from method. really great design from people who care. i cant wait till i can finally order from them- i think i will order a bunch of stuff in the spring.
anyway, i plan on cleaning the refrigerator, the bathroom, and the floors. here are some of the recipes i use when i clean:
to clean exterior and interior walls, dissolve 2 tbsp. baking soda in 1 qt warm water and wipe all surfaces. for stubborn spots, rub with baking soda paste. rinse with a clean wet cloth.
use this drain cleaner once a week to keep drains fresh and clog-free.
1/2 cup baking soda
1 cup white vinegar
1 gallon boiling water
1/2 a used lemon
pour baking soda down drain or disposal, followed by vinegar. allow it to foam for a while before flushing the drain with boiling water.
*baking soda on a damp sponge. baking soda cleans and deodorizes kitchen and bathroom surfaces.
*mix a few drops of essential oil with cornstarch and sprinkle on carpet. let sit for 20 minutes, and then vacuum. ONLY do this if your vacuum is really good at sucking stuff up, unlike mine, otherwise you have to sweep your carpet which is no fun!
okay, that is it for now. i need to get cleaning already. i cant believe its NOON! yikes, gotta go.
oh yeah- i made this journal last night:
blogger! stop spacing my paragraphs out like that! and start spacing them when i WANT spaces! uuuuugh.
