Cleaning for the little Happy Slobs Among Us - Cleaning for Kids

I couldn't help myself...look at how cute this little cleaning set is!! Maybe this will motivate all the Junior Slobbos among us to pick up their broom or duster and get cleaning with Mom, Dad or Grandma. I don't have children, but if I did I would buy this in a heartbeat.

What is YOUR best cleaning tip for cleaning with kids?

Have you tried the timer technique with your kids to 'limit the suffering', and remind them that their cleaning tasks can only take a few minutes a day?

Another Natural Stain Remover - Club Soda

Just what is club soda, anyway? A quick bit of research reveals that club soda is a wonderful addition to your cleaning kit, since it's basically carbonated water with a small amount of salt. (Originally, this was apparently added to the bubbly drink to give it a taste that more closely replicated natural mineral waters.)

Add some bubbly OR stale club soda to a cleaning spray bottle, and add a splash of fresh lemon juice to it. I know this sounds like a pretty tempting beverage, but in fact this cleaning cleaning duo will really help bleach away stains - on clothing, and more! Plus, it'll leave a fresh scent wherever you clean.

Have you used club soda to clean with? Do tell....
