I am participating in this....

Week 3's Challenge(which was last week, but my break was this week so I'm late) was to pick 3 things you have avoided cleaning and clean them.
My 3 were
1. Tupperware cabinet
3. Kitchen Floor
I did do the Tupperware cabinet last week(read about it HERE), but saved the bathtub and kitchen floor for this week, while I was off work. I am warning you now, the before pictures may be a little disturbing. Just like(you know what's coming...)..... Criminal Minds episodes!!!! LOL
First up, bathtub!
Okay, most of this was due to the fact that it was not draining properly. After a bottle of Lquid Plummer I was able to wash away some of that nastiness with water. But this still remained..
I got the rust stain off with Shaklee DeGreaser
And the rest came off with the Scour Off paste
(that seemingly black smudge is a shadow)
I used the paste and degreaser on the rest of the tub and it looks nice. The best part was I did not have to wear gloves(although you should with the paste), there were no toxic fumes(it smelled like cherries) and I could sit in the bathtub while I cleaned.
The next day I went for the floors. Bathroom and Kitchen. The Kitchen was the big one.
I honestly have no idea how I let it get this way
TJ swept, then I used a new toy.
The Cedar Pro Mist. I learned about it from Toni at A Bowl Full of Lemons here I like this because you use your own cleaner and you can use their cleaning pads or any other kinds!! This is good as I still have Swiffer dry cloths. For the cleaner I used Basic H and water.
Now it's clean(er). And I bought a new mat as a reward ($5 at Walmart).
I did the bathroom floors as well(but did not take pictures)
Week 4 Challenge(this week's) was "choose one (or more) traditional spring cleaning tasks and find a spot in your home where you can add a touch of spring with some decorating". After discovering Ask Anna and her posts on Cleaning Your Dishwasher and Cleaning Your Washing Machine I chose those 2 tasks. No pictures, but they look great!! I also decorated my hutch
It is not anyone's birthday, the candle just went good with the blue melamine cups!!
