Seriously I thought when I was a kid that all moms loved cleaning. I thought they liked to wake up before their family and make everything perfect. Chase after the kids in an effortless way and tidy up all day long. I thought moms loved to clean.
Well guess what?
I am a mom and I hate cleaning! I hate the word hate! So this gives you an idea how much I dislike cleaning. For me it takes forever. I am out numbered on a good day. Three dogs, sporty kids, an active kindergartener. How do I keep up?
But somebody has got to do it. After all we need a clean and healthy home, right? There is a certain pride in having a welcoming house when surprise guests come over. It is nice to know the 5 second rule is not to just make you feel good about not wasting food. Your floors are actually clean.
But, do I want to spend the day on my hands and knees scrubbing? Nope! Do I want to have to buy a million different products in hopes to get my house ‘Spring Clean’ ready? Nope!
When I started feeling guilty like us moms do. I turned to my online friends. I asked on my Facebook wall what others thought about cleaning? Here are some of their responses.
Some days I don’t enjoy it, but to be honest, some days I find it relaxing lol
I’m right with you, I clean because how else will it get done?! lol
I hate it. The only time I am into it at all is when I am really angry, then I will whip through the house like a cleaning tornado.
I absolutely love cleaning!!!
Good point about length of time cleaning vs staying clean…I just find it such a wasted effort since it just be dirty again in moments
There were many more reactions to cleaning. It made me feel better knowing I was not alone.
I felt good knowing I was not like the moms on TV when I was a kid. But neither are any of the other moms out there. (well, maybe a few :))
Then a knock at the door came and a great cleaning pack arrived from P&G. I honestly posted on my wall “I think I am excited to clean!”
Yep! I was shocked lol

Since cleaning was now a quick and easy task it wasn’t so bad. I do no think it is my top three faves to do but I enjoyed it more than usual 🙂 The great thing about cleaning being easy is, your kids want to help. Even my teen boys were Swiffering around the house. I wish we had scratch and sniff screens. You could smell how clean my house is. I even had time to get other work done because it was so fast.
Since you can not smell how clean my house is I have the next best thing. A giveaway! One lucky Canadian reader is going to win this pack to get their spring cleaning done. $80 value
