The last week of March for the Cleaning Challenge was to tackle the laundry baskets. I have cloth lined, metal framed laundry baskets. I love the look and I also like the idea of taking the liner out to be washed once a month, and it was time for sure.
This happens to be the bin I use for my kids whites, which consist mostly of dirty, smelly, wet, nasty socks. You get the picture right? Teen boys have some smelly feet and their socks get thrown in the bin and stink up the laundry room. So once a month I take the liners out and give them a go in the wash cycle with some bleach.
I am happy to report the liners came out clean and odor free. I didn’t even mind stacking my clean laundry in the bin. I am sticking to my cleaning challenge and getting so many things done. I can’t believe how easy it is to spend an extra 30 minutes and get so much accomplished. With writing it down here it really keeps me accountable and motivated. You should give it a try!
For April I will be tackling our side entry way. It’s what we use for everyday living and it seems to be the catch all spot. It is 9 feet long, has cupboards up top, cupboards on bottom, a bench and coat hooks. I will be back at the end of April to share my clean and organized area.
