I love teaching my kids the bit-by-bit lessons about how to look after themselves, their relationships, their things and their space. Cleaning, however, is a big lesson. We have taught our kids to clean up after themselves, after meals and such. Most of the time they need reminding in order to do so, but there are moments of brilliance. For example, at a recent birthday party my 2.5 year-old daughter was putting away her borrowed costume item and I caught her picking up every single costume that was on the ground and putting them in the bin, too. Sweet!! I feel like, maybe, all my nagging has paid off!
I went to a Norwex party a few months ago, picked up a few things (the laundry detergent and the kitchen scrub cloth) and tried them out at home. I liked them so much that I signed up. Chemical-free cleaning? I felt good about not exposing my kids to any gross chemicals and getting a great clean on my scrub-needing surfaces. Then, I got an antibac enviro cloth and tried it out on a few surfaces. I was in love, it was great! It had just the right amount of abrasiveness to really feel like I could give a good scrub and yet it wiped so well when I just gave a light swipe. I cleaned the counters, the tables, the sink, the backsplash, the stove, the fridge, the floor… then, I gave it to my kids with a spray bottle. I loved that even more! Even better, the kids loved it, too. And, because it was just a cloth and water, I felt no qualms about showing them how to use the products and letting them fly at ‘er! If they pulled out the ever-classic “I want to do it myself!” All right? Go ahead! Seriously, my windows and mirrors had never been cleaner!
I give the kids a spray bottle of water and an enviro cloth or a window cloth and they will scrub, clean, polish and shine every surface… window, mirror, floor, table, counter… you name it. The best part is that it has become a game, somewhat. One of them gets the spray bottle, the other gets the cloth and they have to go around together and find the dirty spots and scrub the dirt out.
