Deep Spring Cleaning Secret Weapon

Whoa! Two posts in one day!
The world is ending.

clearly







This post is sponsored by Pine-Sol® Clean & Disinfect with Pine-Sol®: The Powerful Scent of Clean." I was compensated for this post as a member of Clever Girls Collective, but the content is all my own.


So.
We all KNOW that the only thing
I hate worse
than waking up early in the morning
to drive an hour each way to work,
is getting up
on any day
with the notion on my mind
that I NEED to clean something.
Now.
Before it gets way too far out of control.

I admit it.
Once,
I had help.
Those were the best 17 weeks of my life.
Not having to worry that things
were getting too far gone
because someone else would clean it up 
no longer than 14 days later.

Don't you judge me.

You know what I missed when my cleaning lady came?
Sure.
The house looked clean.
And it didn't smell like anything.
And that was the problem.

When I was growing up, 
THIS was the best smell ever


Original Scent Pine Sol meant that my mama was cleaning.
At the time,
I didn't appreciate having to get up on Saturday mornings
to clean my room.

But man, when I open a fresh bottle of Pine Sol, 
I flash back to some of the best years of my life.

My mother - she's awesome like that.
She STILL cleans like it is no one's business.
But that is not the reason why I want her to move in with me.
Definitely not to clean up after me.
I'm a grown woman after all.

However, if she cleaned her own bathroom here with Pine Sol 
and the smell wafted up the stairs...

Heaven.

Anyhow.
This weekend,
I got it in me,
that I would clean something.

Those somethings were my downstairs living room
(eeew...puppy)
and my master bathroom 
(ewww...just, ewwww).

So I got dressed


And I grabbed a spray bottle.
My secret cleaning weapon for the bathroom?


I diluted some Pine Sol in my spray bottle
and went to TOWN in the bathtub
yes, the same tub that we had 
washed a certain muddy puppy in
and promptly left the mud to dry on.

I'm far too much of a lady to show you photos of that
(ashamed)
but trust...that Pine Sol not only got my tub
from brown to white
(no doubt on that one)
but I went from Grumpy Dumpy Puppy Mommy pissed that she had to clean
to Super Sentimental Reminiscent Memory Lane Walker
soon as that Original Scent Pine Sol hit my nostrils.

By the time I got downstairs to steam clean the carpet,
I was so ready to clean, but only had managed to cart down 
the Dyson and the spray bottle.

Nothing lifted my mood better than being able to clean
EVERYTHING with that spray bottle.
From the rained on window sills
to the bar counter tops
to the kicked and played on grime on my walls.

I was shocked, awed and happy as a clam
that I had found a new deep spring cleaning secret weapon.

Who knows.
I might just like cleaning after all!
Okay...that's a bit extreme.



Are you a little extreme when it comes to cleaning?
