If you’re like most moms, your busy schedule means that certain areas of your life get a little short-changed. For me, that’s usually the cooking and cleaning! I long ago accepted the reality that I’m not going to have the super-clean house that my mom had. (And she and my dad managed to accomplish this while both working full-time jobs outside the home!) Instead, I’ve instituted some shortcuts to make my life a little easier. For instance, I rarely iron. I hate it! Instead, I don’t purchase clothes that will need a lot of ironing, and I hang up items right out of the dryer to minimize wrinkles. I also confess to keeping extra placemats on hand to avoid washing the table! I just throw dirty placemats into the laundry and replace them with clean ones.
So, what are your cleaning confessions? Now’s your chance to ‘fess up, and maybe even win a new Kenmore washer/dryer or dishwasher in the process! Yes, Kenmore wants to know the off-beat things you do to tackle the housecleaning. Do you let your dog lick your dishes clean? Do you just throw a rug over carpet stains? We want to know! Here’s more information from Kenmore on their exciting contest:
