Gosh, with all this quarantine business because of the Covid-19 virus, we’re all in the house double time and *plenty* of time for spring cleaning this year! So I’ll help you.
I was talking with a friend about vacuum cleaners–the way you’ll do, you know–and she gave me a terrific idea for cleaning that her mother used to use—no vacuum involved at all. Ready? First you dampen some newspapers (make sure all the puzzles are done first) and then you tear the newspapers up into little strips and spread them on your floors. Wait a while until they dry and then sweep them up! There ! done!
I’ll add here that this is the same friend who is always “getting organized” –this is the part I like–she found an old notebook from a year before labeled “Housekeeping” and she looked inside to see what had been accomplished. But___! as Millie would exclaim*—the pages were empty!
Ha, ha, ha
*Millie, as you may recall from blogs gone-by was an old neighbor in Rhode Island who liked to spike her stories with explosions of “But—-!”
Well, that’s my little story and hint for today—my floors are gleaming and I’ll get on to the next project. Let me know your results and I hope no one comes to your door to see the state of your house with strips of newspapers all over! Think of the money you’ll save on electricity . . .
