Tackle it Tuesday: Behind Door #1...

Behind doors #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8 was nothing but some grime. My inside doors needed a good scrub, and so I tackled em to the ground tonight! I have 8 doors between bedrooms, bathrooms, basement and the laundry room. And from start to finish, it took me just about an hour. Not bad and totally worth it. They don't look brand spanking new, but they definitely look a ton better! We have 3 panel doors, and as much as Carl would like to replace them all with 6 panel, that's just not a top priority in the budget. So our 3 panel, freshly scrubbed doors it is!

If you want to be a greener cleaner, make a solution with 1 cup white distilled vinegar, 1 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup ammonia and 1 gallon warm water. Wipe on with a sponge or damp,not wet, towel. And click here for a ton of green cleaning solutions!

Otherwise, a mix of water and Pine Sol does the trick as well, and if you are a fan of the smell like me, you'll enjoy the lingering scent!

That was it for me tonight, but I did want to post one thing Carl tackled this past weekend. The bulbs under our microwave were burnt out, but the bottom grate also needed a serious cleaning. I wish I had taken a before picture, but I didn't realize how much better it was going to look! I'm pretty sure this was yet another thing that was never cleaned before we moved here. We had never even taken the time to put bulbs in before! (yes...a year later, we finally did.) It looks great now! And I love my new found light :)

Did you just go look at the bottom of your microwave? Was your reaction "EW!" or something along those lines? If you answered yes, I highly suggest investing in this product- we got it at Home Depot. Worth every penny- and that's coming from Carl. He's a tough customer.

So I know you tackled something tonight, right?? Yeah. You did. :)
