In your home and homeschool
Happy Monday! It’s the start of a new week! Are you ready to get started?
Our Zone Missions this week are in the Main Bathroom and the room of your choice. This is the week that you can pick a room that needs decluttering and a quick rescue. Hopefully, your Main Bathroom does not need a lot of detail cleaning.
If you swish and swipe each day, your Main Bathroom will stay maintained. This one habit takes less than two minutes a day to do. It’s so simple that many of you skip over it, and then you realize that your bathroom needs a thorough cleaning.
To swish, you just need to use your bowl brush each morning for a quick swish. If you have boys, you might also need to use a piece of toilet paper to wipe around the rim. (smile) I swish my toilet each morning after my shower. The boys swish their toilet during their morning routine. I keep a Rubba Swisha in all three bathrooms in a plastic vase with water and body wash mixture.
To swipe, you just need a cloth to wipe the bathroom counter and sink. If you keep most of your things put away, it will take less than 60 seconds to wipe this down. I use a FlyLady purple cloth to wipe my sink and tub areas.
I extend my swipe time to also include wiping my shower walls and tub. It only takes a minute to wipe my walls and tub, and it helps me keep the bathroom tidy and clean.
When it is time to do the monthly detail cleaning in my bathroom, it really does not take long. I need to sweep and mop it. I go through my supplies and declutter. I make sure I have what we need on hand, and I am done.
This way, I have more time to spend on decluttering somewhere else in the house, or I have time to declutter in the garage.
When I travel, I automatically wipe down bathroom surfaces. It’s a habit that is ingrained in my morning routine.
Tell me how your main bathroom looks today.
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter the bathroom counter and wipe down.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash sheets.
My menu plan for Monday is ham and fixings.
Have a great day!
