Keeping A Clean House

I have been watching Hoarders on Amazon prime lately. I come from a long line of clutter bugs so I can relate to holding on to things you don’t really need. However I cannot relate to dirtiness being acceptable. In the global health crisis we find ourselves, we must do our part to keep things clean.  

I am by no means an ideal housekeeper. However, there are surfaces in our homes that are cleaned daily and with products safe for our children and our waterways. How do we keep surfaces clean to avoid the spread of germs?

We use five main products in our cleaning routine:

We really love the Thieves Home Cleaning Kit as it comes with a high-quality stainless steel bucket, a recipe book for making a multitude of household cleaning products, five essential oils, thieves household cleaner and spray bottle.  Though if you are brand new to YL, I suggest  the Thieves Starter Kit

For cleaning the toilet of course we spray the outside surfaces with Thieves household cleaner and wipe it.  the inside of the toilet we also spray and we scrub with a brush. Our water does tend to leave stains, so often times the kids prefer to shake baking soda mix with Thieves cleaner over spraying.
