Porcelain Friday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Today’s mission is going to be interesting for you. This is one time I will tell you to pull out the bleach wipes or use some other germ killer. We are going to wipe around the outside of the toilet, so you might want to wear rubber gloves, too. This is probably one of the least favorite of all house cleaning tasks, but it is a necessary task. I live in a house with 4 boys and 1 husband. That’s a lot of males in one house. The toilet in the boys’ bathroom needs to be wiped around the outside at least once a week. The toilet in my bathroom can be wiped around once a month and be fine. Since we put in new toilets that are higher off the floor, I have noticed less mess around the toilet in the boys’ bathroom. Now that you know more about our toilets than my mother, let’s glove up and get the wipes out. You can set your timer or not for this task. I know you are not going to make it last longer than it needs to last.
Have a great week-end!
If you have any questions or tips, please email me. I enjoy hearing from my readers.
