30-Day Cleaning Challenge day 4

Hello again. Welcome to day 4 of our 30-day cleaning challenge. The object of this challenge, is to eliminate the weekend clean-a-thon by cleaning a section of your home for just 20 minutes a day – every day. If you want to start the challenge from day 1, click here.

Today we’ll be:

Surface clean “extra” rooms – basement, office, entry way

In my case, “extra” rooms mean my office and hubby’s “man cave.”

I started with my office. Gave my desk a good dusting

And a quick clean with a sponge and water

Next, the chair and foot stool.

There are two reasons why I put this chair in my office. One, because I love it. I rescued it from a dumpster (no, I didn’t actually go dumpster diving – it was sitting next to a dumpster looking sad and dejected) and I took it home and “upcycled” it. You can read about how we did that here. The other reason is that, when I get tired of sitting on my office chair, I can sit in this nice comfortable one and continue working. Wrong! My cats thought that this chair was placed there just for them! My dark-haired cats. As a result, it’s covered in cat fur – as you can see.

Fortunately, the pet fur attachment on my Dyson cleans this in seconds

And that’s my office – done!

Next – hubby’s “man cave.” This room is a little trickier due to the fact that he has a lot of books and small ornaments.

That’s why I like the Swiffer duster so much. It’s really good for dusting these little ornaments, and the books and bookshelves. It gets into all the small spaces also.

I resist the urge to move things around to make it more pleasing to the eye – to “girly-fy” it. Instead, I just dust, straighten and vacuum

This room is tiny, so I’m done in about 5 minutes.

Gosh – I’m all finished. It’s too early for wine, so I think I’ll wash my hair. 🙂

See you tomorrow!
