So, I'm going to condense 2 days into one post. NOTE: Your best friend when cleaning well is a great vacuum with handheld suction. I have a central vac and I LOVE it. Dave hates the long cord, but I love how clean I can get everything.
Organized and wiped down all the shelves in the Pantry
Tossed out stale and outdated food
Mop tile floor
All I used for this is Simple Green concentrate in a bucket of water.
I have a walk in pantry, so I also use it as a butlers pantry to hold my large cooking gadgets. This is a great time to dust the rarely used ones, and clear out the ones I never use. Also, things tend to get put in there that don't belong, so it's a great time to relocate those to their proper place.
Also on day 2 I tackled 1/2 my walk in closet. We don't have dressers, so our clothes are either hung up or folded on shelves. I did Dave's side first. It was gross. Simply completely cluttered and DUSTY. Ick. Starting at the top, I took out all the clothes from the shelves. Then I vacuumed and wiped out all the shelves with Simple Green. After removing the stuff to donate or throw away, I put it all back in a much more orderly way and marveled at how half my closet looked!
Complete the other half of the closet - My side was not nearly as bad as Dave's side since I tend to go through mine more often. Then I vacuumed the floor. SIMPLY BLISS. I love my closet!
