Do you ever just wish you could close your eyes and wish your house cleaner? It’s no secret that dust-bunnies and fur-balls are an ever challenging state of normalcy over here.
But last night, we had to have my son’s Boy Scout Merit Badge Counsellor over at the sort-of last minute and, although I try to tame things here on a daily basis, sometimes the applesauce helicopter tops and the thirty pairs of tennis shoes pile up! (not to mention the accumulating pile of glasses that are, apparently, one-time-use only and promptly abandoned on the counter).
In the past, these last minute visitors used to mildly freak me out. But no more! Not with Courtenay Hartford’s 8 Minute Ninja Cleaning Method.
It’s a super quick way to get your home presentable for those welcome, albeit, surprise visits.
My absolute favorite tip? Throw the dirty dishes in a soapy sink to make it look like you’re working on them. BRILLZ, baby!
The Cleaning Ninja is a new book from my friend, Courtenay Hartford of The Creek Line House! She is a whiz at quick and easy cleaning and has a massive collection of easy-peasy tips in her book. I’ve followed Courtenay for years and am always inspired, entertained and thoroughly delighted by her sage (and witty) advice and easy-going, and “smarter, not harder” attitude towards home-making.
I’m going through the book a little bit every day and, as I said earlier, I’m a big fan of her 8 Minute Method. It absolutely works and takes the OMG out of last minute visitors!
In the book she covers everything from setting up an efficient cleaning panty to lightening-fast laundry to daily and monthly checklists to make sure you keep that Ninja Cleaning a recurring habit.
I hope you’ll check out her new book and share it with your friends.
