What in the world happened? I know!! I must be getting some actual rest! Now that my son is doing a lot more for himself I can remain where I was more often. SO: Today I completely cleaned the bathroom. Tub, surround, sink, potty, you name it got a thorough cleaning, rinsing and drying, and I changed the shower curtain too for good measure. THEN I headed out with son to find some railroad tracks to photograph-- and before I left, I put the parts of the stove to soaking in laundry detergent and hot water. I liberally sprayed the rest of the stove everywhere with 409 and I also took off the knobs so as to get that part of the stove top that is obscured with hardware cleaned thoroughly. When I returned, I started cleaning. AH. I have a gleaming stove now.
The tub and surround- while it looked OK to the casual observer had not been deep cleaned for 2 months! Nor had the stove. So while both items looked OK if you didn't dwell on looking at them, they desperately needed cleaning. NOW all is gleaming. Next, the wooden kitchen cabinets which need polishing. Lots of upping and downing the step ladder but worth it for the gleaming result when I do it. If I didn't have supper to make for us I would do it now.
Guys, I obviously have some time to myself finally...well, sorta, and a bit more rest. I enjoyed the cleaning.
