I have a cleaning question

Don is back to work today. I don't know if I should applaud him or chastise him. He is a strong, determined, loyal, but stubborn man. Sometimes you just have to kick back and stay out of it. At least by this point he is on OTC pain regiment during the day and one prescription pain pill at night. I don't know how he does it.

Poor Kinsley is home from school today. Last night she had one shower, two baths, and lots of puke coming out of both ends. It was so bad I had to trash her underwear and PJ pants. Lets face it, there are some things we are not required to clean. There is a mountain of laundering to do and I have broken out the bleach. Today she is feeling a little better and so far there has been no puke from either end.

Today I am keeping my tasks reasonable. I need to get to the grocery store and will save that for when I pick Fiona up from school. I have more high fiber items to buy for Don and some tummy soothing items for Kinsley. So far Fiona and I are fine and I'd like it to stay that way.

I have been washing my hands so much my knuckles are bleeding. I've got to do something about that. My treadmill has been calling out to me. My numbers are going in the wrong direction. I have tons of reading to do. I am good! I will see this as a challenge and tackle each item one at a time. That includes disinfecting and scrubbing all of my bathrooms, too.

Does anyone have a cleaning formula that will cut through the grime on our shower floor in the master bath?


  1. What I have found to work the best is a mixture of Dawn blue (the blue works the best) dish soap and white vinegar. The ratio is half and half. Heat vinegar for 1 minute in the microwave then pour into a spray bottle. Add soap. Shake and spray area. Let sit about 30 min. to an hour if really bad and scrub away. Hope that helps and hope everyone at your house gets better soon!

  2. Hi Jessie! I went to Super Target yesterday and bought some Dawn Blue, white vinegar, and a spray bottle from the section that holds all the mops and brooms. I am going to give your suggestion a try. Boy do I hope this works because cleaning built up grime on our shower floor is awful. Hopefully, this will do the trick and I can stay on top of it so this grime build-up doesn't happen again. Thank you so much! :]

  3. I would use the Dawn and vinegar and then put it in a little scrubbing tool you use to scrub dishes. The one where you can put soap on the top and the bristles are on the bottom and it fits in your hand. Then as the soap comes out, you can scrub. That worked SUPER on our shower floor.

  4. Oh...that's a good idea. Thanks for the tip Charla!
