I have this really funny memory of me as a kid at my best friend's house cleaning up her room. Not because her mom made us either! I just wanted to clean it. I thought it was fun! Most likely because it was someone else's room. You know how doing dishes isn't so bad at your friend's dinner parties, but you hate doing your own? Kind of like that. I never had a clean room as a kid. It's just something about cleaning other people's houses that isn't as bad as cleaning your own. So it's no surprise that as an adult I make extra money on the side with a few cleaning jobs!
I've always kept my own house pretty tidy, but it wasn't until I picked up these side jobs that I actually developed a technique and aquired favorite supplies.

one// Pledge Multi Surface
Pledge Multi Surface is number one on my list for a reason. It is my favorite cleaner and it does so much. Obviously it works on multi surfaces, but it works well on everything I've tried. I swear by this stuff! It works well on furniture, mirrors, my stainless steel and I am even allowed to use it on Blake's electronics. Well he would disagree with that statement, but he hasn't complained about it at least.
two// Lysol Disinfecting Wipes
These are good for quick clean ups and legit cleaning. I have to have them when I'm cleaning other peoples bathrooms especially. They are really good for around toilets and cleaning up after Delly's accidents.
three// Magic Erasers
Magic, yes! These are crucial for bathtubs and sinks. This week I had an extra cleaning job for a house that is about to go on the market. Without Magic Erasers, I don't know what I would have done! This house was quite a challenge. The tubs were disgusting to say the least. They had, I'd say, years of soap scum build up. I spent half an hour scrubbing them with Magic Erasers (several) and they turned out amazing. These things are also really good for getting rid of scuffs on the floors and walls.
Classic clorox should be on everyone's have to have list! It's awesome and works great! Living in Florida we will always have to deal with mold/mildew issues inside and out. I spray clorox on anything and everything that can be bleached.
five// JR Watkins Dish Soap
I've talked about this dish soap before in one of my currently loving posts. We don't have a dishwasher, so we hand wash every night. If I have to hand wash, I'm going to use nice soap! Plain blue soap is boring and I need all of the happiness and joy I can get when I'm washing dishes! I love the lemon and grapefruit scents. They are fresh and crisp and clean-what more could you want from dish soap?
