Cleaning has never been the challenge for me.  Keeping things clean and organized however is a different story.  I have tried so many different ways to keep things organized that it is crazy.  I still usually live a very messy lifestyle.

Living with roomies can be tricky in this way if you mess spills over into other shared places and spaces.  Something that I have started to do is to keep everything else except my room very clean.  I wipe down the counters and the stove each time that I use them.  I vacuum the carpet every other weekend (my roomie takes my off weekends), and then there is the bathroom.  I clean the counter and the mirror, I change the towels and the toilet paper.  I make sure there is plenty of soap and room spray but the thing that I forget every time is to get my hair out of the drain and pick the shower mat up out of the tub so that it doesn’t mold!


Speaking of mold nobody likes that, to clean everything I use one product – comet!  Comet cleans the hell out of everything!!  The toilet – comet, the sink – comet, the shower – comet, the metal shower heads and kitchen sink – comet, the floors – comet!  However, I have learned that this is an abrasive product and will scratch certain surfaces like a shower stall and a bathroom sink.  To save money from buying all those crazy expensive cleaning products, if I can’t use comet….I use vinegar!

baking sodaVinegar and baking soda are the most perfect combination to clean with although be careful when mixing the two, there could be some explosions!  I normally just wet the surface pour the baking soda on it then the vinegar and make a paste like substance.  From there I simply rub it in and clean whatever it is that is dirty.

Between the comet costing something like .60 cents and the vinegar and baking soda costing like $1.89 ($1 for the baking soda and .$89 for the vinegar) it really isn’t a huge strain on your wallet.  And you aren’t using so many harsh chemicals!

Let me know how you find new ways to clean effectively!
