Today is “dump and clean” day…I choose not to dump, and let McGyver do that…I also choose NOT to clean, however there is no one to delegate that duty to, soooooooo…I succumb to the job of housekeeper/cleaning lady.. Definitely NOT my favorite, but hey, this is a small RV right?? Get on with it, I say! And because I was at a loss for a blog topic (we have been housebound in the rain for 2 days), I decided to share with you a few of my favorite cleaning tools and tricks to get this over with fast..Yes, I will do anything for a blog!
My Swiffer 360 degree Duster..I can clean faster than a speeding bullet with this thing…and without a cape! And then there is my favorite shower cleaner, Scrubbing Bubbles Mega Shower FOAMER… With a name like this, you would think the darn thing would do it all without me…Well, almost..All I do is spray it all over our shower walls, let it sit for a minute (time to refill the coffee cup and grab a donut), then spray the walls with hot water from the shower. This ONLY works if you have a removable head (shower, that is)..Ya gotta be able to take that little hose and aim it at the walls….This is where I think McGyver should be doing my job..A Hose Captain of the Sandwich Fire Dept. is better qualified to get this done…right??.OK…wrong.
See that little hanger with the clips on it?…INVALUABLE!! After scrubbing off the shower mat, you rinse it with the removable shower head and hang it up to dry..This allows your shower floor to dry out, so black slimy things can’t grow..It ‘s also helpful to turn on your overhead shower fan and open the vent…Those shower walls and mat dry out great, and here’s a bonus… you might catch a few bugs in the fan and watch them go around and around…Cleaning and extermination all in one job!! I know, I know..GENIOUS!
What we have here is Clorox spray Clean-Up Cleanser with Bleach…Yes, I did say bleach..Now, before you go and using this stuff, please read the rules for cleaning your RV sinks…You can use this on ours…but, I don’t want a thousand nasty comments saying I ruined your sinks…(that was my disclaimer)..The reason I love this stuff is that it really helps get any coffee or tea stains out of the sink and drainer…I also spray my tupper ware dishpan and the drainer , then use a toothbrush to really get the gunk out…(I DO try to keep all coffee water in the dishpan and toss it outside..but that’s exactly what got my feet into trouble with our big step at the bottom of the RV..)
Ya know, sometimes I crack myself up at just how desperate I am to find a subject to make fun of…I apologize for the first half of this blog…HMMMM…No I don’t…You know me well enough by now to know how pathetic I can get.
I actually did get out for a little bike ride in the park today…(I refrain from walking with Dennis, as my feet are still in the healing process and he walks too damn fast!)..Guess who I spotted again this morning??
At first, Mr. Spoonbill was ignoring me, but I think he actually recognized me by the bicycle, the jumping up and down, and the frantic waving…So, he posed…I also got myself a few other neat bird photos this morning…Bear with me, bird photo cringers, I just cannot help myself..
Not really sure what the guy on the left is…Maybe the tri-colored Heron?? (OK, I’m clueless!). I’m getting pretty good at my covert stealth approach , gliding quietly through the grass on my old lady bike, hobbling off of it and sneaking through the dense underbrush with my camera poised for the good shot…James Audubon ..eat your bird loving little heart out!!
Yea, I know..this was a senseless effort. Another example of Donna, flying by the seat of her “happy pants”….I just refused to let a blog slip by due to boredom…and YOU, my dear bloggers friends, are the ones who suffer!!
“Who was the first person to say, "See that chicken over there ... I'm gonna eat the first thing that comes out if its butt"?” ~haven’t a clue who said it, but I laughed MY butt off!!
