Saturday 9/22/12

Posted: 29 September 2012 - 09:28 AM

We have completed the following tasks:
-Filled at least one bag with clothing and taken to donations;
-Cleaned out the medicine chest;
-Cleaned out the junk drawer;
-Cleaned out the refrigerator;
-Cleaned, vacuumed, organized bedroom closet;
-Cleaned underneath the kitchen sink.

*NOTE* Upon completion of a project, you have to maintain that spot (keep it clean and organized). Maintenance is easier once a project area is completed :)

Tillie -

People are having difficulty following through :(

What is our "task" for this weekend? :)

During Sunday chat we brought up the "Weekly Task".
One poster had just replaced a faucet so he had just cleaned under his sink.
Other posters said that they would do the task.
I told them to post their experiences here.

Oh Well :(

TY Cory!

You addressed my worst fear; too many chemicals inside the home -and they are under the kitchen sink.

There are stations in each of our counties and at the county dump to discard old/not-needed chemicals, paints, batteries, and other things that have progressed to bio-hazard status :)

I keep the underneath part of the sink clean, and once a month (so did it this weekend), take everything out and wipe down under the kitchen sink! I let that air dry for 1/2 a day, wipe down all bottles that will return to the cupboard. When the space if dry and no leaks detected (I keep paper towel under the pipes - easy way to detect a leak), the stuff that belongs in there, goes back, the rest is properly disposed.

Yesterday, I had a bottle of "goo-be-gone" I purchased for my dad (and it did wound up under my sink!) because he has price stickers on stuff & I cannot remove them. The "goo-be-gone" bottle in my carry bag to drop off at his place on Monday evening.

Job is done!

Since I do this "under the sink" task around the first of every month, I will do it this week.

Where the pipes come in I stuffed steel wool to stop the mice from getting in there. Billy the exterminator said that I did a great preventative measure. :D

I have discovered over the years that when I don't take a good look under the sinks on a regular basis, Gremlins move in and cause the pipes to spring slow leaks which ruins any products stored there. ;)

Come on people! We can do this! :D

So last week we stepped it up a notch and attacked our closet. I feel I owe it to you to give you a little break this week. Our new weekly task is...under the kitchen sink. If yours is already clean, then you have a free week but most of you probably have the old sponges from two decades ago, enought mixmatched cleaning solutions to clean an entire hotel, and some strange unknown contraptions that you haven't thrown out because you think they might serve some purpose, somewhere, but you just know what for. Tips for cleaning under the sink, first remember that cool dark places that go undisturbed for long lentghs of time do invite the critters. Safey first, have the spider spray handy. Let's remove everything unneccesary starting with the cleaners. Keep one type of cleaning solution for countertops, one glass cleaner, perhaps a furinture oil and a dish soap. My point is, thin the cleaners way down. Remember many parts of the country have household hazardous waste collection sites, so recycle those cleaning solutions. Next remove all of the bizarre collection of old dish towels, rubber gloves and scouring pads that haven't been used since Ronald Reagan was in office. What else is under there? Lets see who can come up with the most interesting item during their purge today. Keep it fun and this one can go by quickly. Hey, before you throw out the old cleaners, you can always give them the courtesy parting goodbye by using them to clean something else in your home! Good luck all and have a great weekend!!
