Cleaning the house

1/15/2018





If you are like me, you may WISH for a clean house a whole lot more than you actually clean it:) I find it really stressful to look around and see clutter and mess, but I've yet to figure out a solution to keeping things as clean as I would like. I'll make little deals with myself like, ok - if you clean for 20 minutes you can have a chocolate chip cookie, or maybe a glass of wine.

Clutter is starting to bother me less than actual dirt, especially as Blake is getting more mobile and rolls around on the floor. It's one thing to leave a bunch of books out... another to have to pluck dog hairs off of her when I pick her up:( Anyways, suffice to say that I would LIKE to have a clean and spotless house, yet typically it does not happen.

That's why I was THRILLED when a new company contacted me about a cleaning service they were offering. Mopify is a modern cleaning service that you can schedule entirely online, without consultations or having to commit to weekly or monthly cleanings. I have had two house cleaners in the past, but found that the cost was prohibitive when I'm on maternity leave. I had to commit to bi-weekly cleanings, and while that's great, it was a little expensive. I also had one cleaner where I had to have the dog out of the house... another little step that adds up to inconvenience.

I loved my cleaning with mopify - especially that I could do it all online. I picked a day and time, entered my house size, chose a few options and that was it. On the day of the cleaning I had planned to be at home, but nap times and school drop-offs intervened. I texted them asking if I could leave a key in the mailbox, and that was it. We came home a couple hours later to a very clean house, and a very friendly cleaning lady who chatted with the kids and asked if there was anything else I would like her to do.

I'm planning to use mopify again for myself, but I also think it would be a fantastic gift to an overwhelmed family of a new baby, or someone who's struggling to balance it all. It was very reasonable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Mopify is offering $20 off all bookings with the following link - https://mopify.com/r/c2f0bc6.

Also - Mopify is offering two Gift Certificates, each valued at $100. Leave a comment below to be entered to win! I will randomly select 2 winners on Friday, January 19.

I love cleanliness, but hate everything involved in the actual tasks necessary for that result. Ironically, my side gig is creating natural home cleaning products.

Oh, and Dusting baseboards=the worst!

Oh gosh I NEED this! With 4 kids in this house weekly i feel like I’m always behind! My least favourite chore is mopping the floors!

Cleaning house with kids us like an exercise in futility. So I'd live to have someone come clean up! Then maybe my baseboards would actually get cleaned ��

Mopping the floors is the worst - and between a toddler and a dog I feel like it's a never-ending job!

We have had a regular cleaning lady until recently and I SO miss it!

Cleaning is my least favourite job. How great would it be to come home to a clean house!

Ashley said...

I hate dusting, cleaning windows/glass and any of the big jobs like pulling out appliances.

Floors never stay clean with kids!

cleaning administration is that we clean your home in view of a course of action. A technique that goes up against cleaning in a deliberate, sorted out way (while having the adaptability to join your custom wishes).house clearance

It is necessary to keep the home neat and tidy as it helps avoiding the risk of infections and allergies, and makes the home safer to live. Therefore, I hired Cleaning Services Durban, as it provides great discounts on window cleaning.
