Today I had one of those days where I cleaned things that never get cleaned. I'm not talking about things that you clean weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly. I'm talking about those things you never think of cleaning until you HAVE to clean them.
To give you two examples of things I cleaned today: I cleaned the filter on my vacuum cleaner. YUCK! I knew it needed to be done, but since I couldn't see the actual filter I didn't realize how BAD, how caked, how much stuff was coated on it. I swear it took me more than 5 minutes of just spraying it with water to get it even close to clean. Hmmm wonder if I should go vacuum the floor when it dries to see if it works better and how much I missed vacuuming the floor?
I also cleaned out under the stove. The bottom "drawer" of my stove is an oven so it doesn't come out. I don't used this oven drawer very often as well... I don't need the boys opening the drawer with a hot dish in there or even if it is just heated. Blake was on the floor yesterday and said there was a car under the stove. So today I got out the yardstick to get the car out from under the stove. Well there were 3 cars, a spoon, an apple slice, lots of dust, some pieces of cereal and all kinds of other yuck stuff.
Hmmmm wonder what other things I haven't cleaned in a long time that I should consider plugging away at? What item have you recently cleaned and said "I really should do this more often!"
