I Deserve A Prize!!

My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.
 - Erma Bombeck

Today I cleaned my bathroom. Yes, I deserve a prize!

I hate to clean. I do it because I must. But it's not fun. I'd so rather be doing anything else!

Don't get me wrong - I love a clean house. I just wish someone else would clean it.

Not my actual MasterBath
But today I tackled the master bathroom. I had let it go far too long, and the soap scum on the shower door was claiming ownership of the bathroom. After all, possession is 9/10ths.

It's a beautiful bathroom. We recently remodeled it, and I love it. But I hate cleaning it. Glass shower doors make it look bigger, but they are a bear to clean. White tile with white grout is lovely, but looks gross when the grout starts to look brown. Don't judge me. We all have our issues.

So now it's clean. And the bathroom is pretty once again. Ugh.

I deserve a prize!!

  3. Magic erasers work wonders on glass shower doors. Cuts right through the scum with not a ton of elbow grease. Yay for you!! I need to clean mine too...

  4. Yes! You do deserve a prize... I must confess I clean what's needed... you know? I don't really go above and beyond but I am thankful I have a "cleaning obsessed" hubby who actually "loves cleaning to relax" ... interesting huh! oh what a blessing that is! if he sees one dirty cup in the sink... he washes it and without even realizing it he cleans the whole kitchen! LOL! (have you ever watched Monk?? We often say he's like that! Not entirely, of course but with cleanliness!) Of course I clean more often than he does but my house stays clean most of the time for how he does things like that or how he pays attention to details I overlook.

    1. A cleaning husband! What a great gift! I love my guy, and he does many wonderful things around the house, but cleaning isn't his forte.

  5. does wine count as a prize? I bought a steam mop with a detachable hand held steam cleaner for little areas. it made cleaning those areas so much easier. I loved it.

    1. My prize was time with my feet up and a cup of coffee :-) I did buy a whole new array of cleaning supplies. They are still in the Target bag hoping to get used some day.

  6. I think you deserve a prize. We had our bathroom remodel a few years ago. The custom build shower was a wonderful idea until I have to set in and clean it a few times a week so I am feeling your pain. Congrats on a clean bathroom. Wonderful article. Thank you for sharing.

  8. This one made me smile, and laugh because I can "hear" you :)

    For an "act of service" for J's bday, I actually SCRUBBED our whole bathroom, bleach and all, and also organized all my "girly" things (makeup, flat iron, hair junk, etc) so it wouldn't take over the entire counter top. I think that was his favorite thing he got for his bday :)
