FREE clutterfree30 Printable

This past month I did the #clutterfree30 Instagram challenge (follow me here on IG) with Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage and Angie from The Country Chic Cottage.  It was a great success!  I’ve had a lot of requests to continue with the challenge or to start over again.  I’ll definitely be doing more challenges, but for anyone that wants to participate in the challenge off-line or wants to start at any time and complete at their own pace, I put the text on paper for your reference.  I hope you continue to de-clutter your homes and enjoy the peace and calm that a clutter-free (or less cluttered) home can bring.  And for those of you that completed the #clutterfree30 challenge – WAY TO GO!

How to Clean a Shower and Keep It That Way + DIY Recipes

How to Clean a Shower and Keep It that Way + Bonus DIY Cleaning Recipes via Clean Mama

One of the top questions I receive has something to do with cleaning a shower, cleaning soap scum, how to keep a shower clean, etc.  Showers are tough.  If it's a shower that's used regularly, it's damp and has a fair amount of moisture that needs to fully dry on a daily basis.  If it isn't used on a daily or weekly basis it still needs a quick wipe down to keep it clean and dust-free. I have a pretty simple process that helps me maintain … [Continue reading...]
