Oh boy, cleaning tips...keep it natural (store bought or homemade cleaners) and I love baking soda and vinegar! They have so many uses. Oh, and I like to put half lemons in the garbage disposer to freshen up about once a week :-)

Wow! this is just the encouragement I needed today! Trying to plan for a strong fall schedule. My tip is to make a cleaning check list for my non-readers. I took pictures of the things that needed cleaning and then used the pictures to make a check list for the room they were responsible for.

I really love Barkeeper's Friend for stubborn countertop stains and for cleaning the sink and stove.

As far as a cleaning tip, one thing I found is that while you are waiting for something, talking on the phone, watching the kids in the tub, do cleaning the in room you are in. If you are on the phone, cleaning goes by fast and it is amazing how nice it looks and you got a visit with a friend. While the kids are in the tub, shine the sink, wash the toilet (crack the window if you are worried about fumes) and sweep the floor, wiping around the toilet too. Give the kids a wash rag and some baking soda and have them clean the tub. The baking soda won't hurt them and it will get the tub cleaner!

This ebook looks great, and I did enjoy 31 days so much I had to print it out! Thank you so much!

Mrs. Pear said...

I think one of my best cleaning tips is getting the children involved! When they help so much more can be done! And with things like Norwex microfiber cloths being available they can do so much more to help!

Comment: Great giveaway - perfect follow-up to her other book
Tip: Train your young ones to help, and when they get older, they can take over most of the cleaning/laundry/yardwork
Blog visit: visited Jennifer's blog and checked it out!

Shelbi said...

Love your blog, Shari! Would love to win :) Bambi

Bambi said...

Hmm, a cleaning tip from me is one I've often gone back to that I learned from Fly Lady: Do something everyday. Start with the kitchen sink. Even when it seems overwhelming, just keeping ONE thing sparkly (the kitchen sink) and it will spur you on.

(Sorry, the above comment was from me, not my daughter Shelbi ;)

Bambi said...

Visited Jennifer's blog--lovely :)

I could sure USE this! Thanks for hosting a give away!

honeyfromflintyrocks said...

My one cleaning tip: wipe something up or off EVERY time you are in the bathroom. If you are drinking enough water you will be in there lots. This really does KEEP the bathroom clean!!

April said...

I'm excited about this give away.

I just visited her site and I'm very excited about it. I have been feeling overwhelmed lately at keeping the kiddos going in the right direction while keeping our home clean and uncluttered.

Tip: I clean the bathroom while my girls are in the tub. I can be right there and keep an eye on them, but get some cleaning done. I use Trader Joe's multi-purpose cleaner so no worries about fumes.

I also have my 3 & 4 year olds help with the laundry. They fold the towels and their clothes and are getting really good at it. They also sort the laundry for me. We make a game of it and they LOVE laundry time. You would think I was giving them a huge reward.

OxiClean is wonderful for getting stains out of the carpet and I put a half of scoop in with each load of laundry (placed in the tub with the clothes) and it keeps the whites so white and pretty and they come out so fresh and clean smelling.

What great looking books.

Charree said...

Cleaning tip: Using a couple of drops of liquid dishwasher soap and a scotchbrite pad makes stainless steel sinks sparkle and removes stains. Just be sure to rinse it well.

Charree said...

I really liked her then and now post.

Janet said...

Hi from Canada, Shari! Thanks for telling us about Jennifer's book... and her husband's book as well!

Deb said...

I'd love to be entered for the books!

Deb said...

I just visited Jennifer's blog. Thanks for introducing her to all of us.

Deb said...

I'm not sure this is the best cleaning tip...but we like clean kitchen floors. When we have company coming, of course we scrub and clean. After everyone leaves (usually it's a large family) I feel the floor is dirtier than it was before they came! So my option is to just spot clean any major dirt quickly before the company visit and do a good scrub after they leave! Like I said...maybe not the best cleaning tip, but it works for us. :)

Sharri said...

Sounds great--enter me!

Sharri said...

•White Vinegar and Baking Soda make a wonderful cleaning paste!
We even washed our clear vinyl shower curtain in this - came out looking like new!

Really thought provoking article about fb....

I would LOVE this book. As I get older, I find myself falling into the OCD mode more and more. I strive to be clean being the mother of 4 boys.

My cleaning tip is: to make a chart and list things to do daily in blue and then have one or two weekly chores added as well in red.

This works REALLY well for me!

Kimberlys Notebook said...

Love Jennifer's page. Pretty background!

Whitney said...

I have just started the 31 Days to Clean book and am so excited about it. I'd be interested to combine the two books to add to the regular cleaning routine.

Whitney said...

I'm a follower of Renewing Housewives blog. Such an encouragement.

Whitney said...

My cleaning tip would be to establish a schedule to maintain cleanliness and prevent you from having to pull out the super harsh chemical products.

Jenna said...

Those books sound fantastic. Thanks for the giveaway! homemakingpilgrim(at)gmail(dot)com

Jenna said...

One of my favourite cleaning tips is to spread the cleaning tasks and laundry over the week instead of doing a whole house clean or all the laundry once a week. I prefer this to the giant clean-a-thons. homemakingpilgrim(at)gmail(dot)com

Jenna said...

I popped over to Jennifer's website to have a look. I especially liked her Then and Now post. homemakingpilgrim(at)gmail(dot)com

Cleaning tip: we are in the process of selling and relocating and so in order to put our house on the market and keep it clean, I had to declutter, declutter and declutter some more. :-) Now that I've gone through things to prepare for my move, I realized how much stuff I didn't really need. I think setting aside time to declutter (even if your not moving) can really motivate you and encourage you to do the next thing on your list.

I visited Jennifer's blog and liked what she had to say in her "Guess what?" blog comment. It is so easy to forget that not everyone you are close to is on Facebook or something similar and to encourage us not to forget to pick up the phone and call someone or write them a real note, etc. Let's not lose touch with those close to us that might not be on the computer. Hats off to Jennifer for recognizing and speaking out on that.
