It’s hard to believe that our 5 year wedding anniversary is just around the corner (in Feb!). Being married is awesome and I guess we are not newlyweds anymore. But I do have some advice for those of you who are. We really have taken our time in learning about each other’s quirks and how to co-exist. This is a huge part of making a relationship work and the foundation of a solid marriage. I am so happy with how we have taken our time to truly know and deeply love each other before bringing more tiny people into the fold. So maybe we will also catch baby fever in the coming year?!
So – One of the biggest differences between my husband and I… actually our level of neatness! I am a kind of messy and I live by the cycle of 1 clean day then 6 messy days, then 1 clean day and 6 messy days. So basically my house, car, closet, life is predominately messy and clean barely. It is clean the day I clean it and then goes back to the chaos that it is. But this is something I am working on and improving upon vastly! I can safely say that it is getting more to the 3 days clean/3 days messy cycle!
I started by tackling the kitchen. Putting things away, cleaning, not buying too much, closing jars lids, keeping the fridge at bay are all improvements that I have made since living together (7 years ago). I actually never washed a dish in my life until I lived on my own and my mom did everything for me. Very spoiled yes, but now that I am a grown woman, I am more aware of how to clean and what to do it with.
Mean Green recently sent me a box of product to try and I didn’t know about this brand before. I tried the products and I love it. The All Purpose Cleaner is my favorite and the Wipes are also very handy. Did you know that you can also use Mean Green to kill bugs?
HEAVY-DUTY CLEANING POWER
MEETS ALL-PURPOSE CLEANING
Mean Green works better because it contains more cleaning ingredients than other brands. The unique combination of powerful, yet safe, cleaners and degreasers can tackle just about any mess.
The chemistry proves it! The surfactant/detergent in Mean Green is cutting edge technology in the field of nonionic surfactants from one of the world’s leading developers of specialty chemicals. The competitors use less effective formulations that just don’t add up to the power of Mean Green.
Inside and Outside…Mean Green’s one of a kind formulation makes it unbeatable
on the toughest messes!
So my hack? Just one – Get Mean Green and toss out everything else 🙂
