Happy Thursday once again ladies! And since it's Thursday you know what that means right...???
It's time for another
I have to say I am loving this series! I am having so much fun snuffing out the dirt from my house. At the same time I am surprised that for as clean as I am there is still so much that accumulates. I suppose if I made the boys wear bubbles and never let them out then I could get it under series control, but LIKE THAT IS EVER GONNA HAPPEN! We are to active of a family to live that way, so until the time comes that it's just me and the hubs I am rejoicing in the dirt because it means we are doing something right raising our kids. Not meaning that they are slobs who force their mom to clean their messes, but that they are BOYS very dirty busy boys and as a family we are having fun with it.
I warned you that this trip wasn't just about cleaning obsessively but also about reflection as we use these things to also dig into our own lives and examine. So yes call me crazy call me what you want, as I was cleaning the fans yesterday I was doing it with a happy heart because of the family and life my husband and I have created.
This is what my fans looked like after a sad 1 month!
Gross I know!
Because we live in Texas we usually keep our fans spinning year round to circulate the air when the AC is not running and to move the heat when the heater is running. So it's not often I get a look at them, but in the event they are off I like them to be clean! I can always tell when the living room fan is dirty even when it's going on high, it looks dingy spinning around up there. So once a month I make it a point to clean them, and by them I mean all 5 fans. We have 4 ceiling fans and 1 white floor fan in our bedroom (for white noise not that we really need it). I timed myself yesterday and it took me all of 15 minutes to clean the fans. Not long right!
I get a damp rag, a ladder
My dog would not cooperate!
or step stool, or desk chair or I just stand on the bed, whatever gets me there.
Then I go to town.
When it comes to the floor fan, that is the easiest! I take it all apart and clean it in the bathtub.
15 minutes to clean fans. I feel like the air in my house is cleaner after I have cleaned my fans.
So how often do you clean your fans? Once and month? Once a year? Never because who cares really?
Do you have any special tricks?
