  • Project: day 120: organizational chaos/ spring cleaning/ deep clean your dishwasher!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1 (just a bit time consuming, but not as long as the washing machine was to deep clean!)
  • Would I do it again? yes, it was really pretty simple, and probably should be done more often than I have, but hey, that’s the way it goes!
  • What I would do differently: nada 😉
  • Items used: “Place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with plain white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Using the hottest water available, run the dishwasher through a cycle. The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty odor. Next, sprinkle a cupful of baking soda around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short cycle. The baking soda will help freshen and removing stains.”

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

  • Project: day 113: organizational chaos/ super easy and simple way to do a boring old spring cleaning chore! Use dryer sheets for your baseboards!

  • Would I do it again? well we’ll see if it really “repels” the dust and dirt away like it said, but it seems like it should work well! I’ll let you know in a week or so!
  • What I would do differently: nothing 😉
  • Items used: I used 2 fabric softener dryer sheets on my Swiffer. For more details on why dryer sheets do this magic, read about this awesome idea from: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/quick-cleaning-tip-keep-baseboards-cleaner-with-fabric-softner-165957

Project: day 96: organizational chaos/simple craft/ribbon organization!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1

• What I would do differently:Well, since I really just started crafting, I am starting to accumulate supplies rather quickly, so I definitely need to organize, and pronto!
• Items used: one of our old pant hangers that we don’t use anymore, and a bunch of ribbon that was stuck in a bag!! 😉

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

  • Project: day 84: organizational chaos/ 40 bags in 40 days challenge/ spring cleaning/lent, part 1
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2, hard to part with a few things, but you can always get another one if you need to!
  • Would I do it again? yes, and hope to do this every year, if not every 6 months!
  • What I would do differently: nothing! This is a perfect activity/tradition for out with the old, in with the new. Spring is around the corner, we’re moving into a new house n a few weeks, and we really need to weed through some things. I’ll post a part 2 at the end of the 40 days (when we’re in out new house with less clutter!).
  • Items used: black Glad trash bags (easier to hide what you’re getting rid of, and less questioning 😉
