Is your family one of the millions of families planning to enjoy a summer at home, a "staycation", rather then spending money to travel someplace exotic? Or, do you have family coming to visit, sort of forcing you to take a staycation whether you want to or not, like us? Well, if you're like us, you'll want to get the house all spiffied up before that lovely family of yours arrives don't ya think?
I got off to an early start with the family visits, my step daughter flew into town on business yesterday and spent the night with us. So, after getting off work yesterday, I organized my cleaning into sections, paying special attention to the bathrooms, making sure they were super nice and clean. She was only here for one night and, in fact, just headed off back to the airport for her return flight home. I would actually have loved for her to stay longer, it's the next round of family that troubles me, they're on their way in a month or so.
I did such a good job straightening up and cleaning, that the next round shouldn't be too much trouble, as long as I stay on top of it now. I can even get all my favorite Clorox cleaning products at Dollar General, just down the street. Since I put most of my focus on disinfecting the kitchen and bathrooms, I really like to use the Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes and Clorox® Liquid-Bleach, and the one product I could not do without, the Clorox® Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Bleach.
Dollar General also carries other cleaning products, including Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface cleaners.
