I wish I could say I have a home that is perfectly clean every day but that isn't even close to the truth. Yes, we have a clean home but it is pretty obvious that we have kids when you walk into our house. There are finger prints, food crumbs, toys, and random stuff all over the house thanks to our little ones but thankfully I have found a way keep up with the little munchkins and their messes!
Windex® is my parenting cleaning tool. It is not just for glass either. Windex® is perfect for so many of the surfaces throughout our home including windows, mirrors, sealed granite, glass shower doors, chrome bathroom fixtures, tile, plastic, vinyl, aluminum and so much more. While I certainly use Windex® all over the house I use it almost daily in our bathroom.
Parenting is all about teaching your child how to be a grown up at some point in their life. That means we have to give our kids independence with the chores and life skills we teach them. That is great, especially when they can start to dress themselves, go to the bathroom on their own, and even help with daily chores around the house BUT it also means they sometimes leave more of a mess for you to clean up after completing a task.
Enter our world of Jude brushing his teeth. He is good at it, like really follows those rules of getting every tooth nice and clean and most importantly rinsing his mouth. He loves brushing his teeth, he feels proud when he is done and it really is nice that he can do it on his own now. But like I said - THE MESS that follows can also be really frustrating.
He brushes those teeth....
He rinses his mouth...
And our mirror looks like this! Oh the streaks!! And these aren't just water streaks, no people these are toothpaste, water and spit streaks! Oh lovely! Thanks child. Kids are so gross. Great job on those shiny teeth but could you please not spit on our mirror?
That is where our favorite glass cleaner comes into play. Simply spray the glass cleaner on the mirror of streaks and clean off with dry paper towel. Literally takes me a minute to do every day and it helps our bathroom look guest ready even if the kids have been in and out of it all day.
Goodbye toothpaste, spit, and water streaks!! We will see you tomorrow but watch out - our Windex® is coming for ya!
Once the mirror is all cleaned and streak free, I set the stage for the next teeth brushing session and wait patiently with my favorite Windex® Original Glass Cleaner. Thank you parenthood for never letting us be bored or without a story about Jude or Teagan.
Find Windex® Original Glass Cleaner, America’s #1 glass cleaner*, is easily found in the Home Cleaning section at Walmart. A must have for every home but especially those with little messes.
