Cleaning the house is not on my top 5 list of favorite things to do this week (or month for that matter).

About a year and a half ago (when I was pregnant w/ Efraim) I finally realized that no matter how many times I cleaned my house in a day, it was still going to get dirty again, and I was just going to have to get over it and figure out a way to enjoy it.

That’s when I discovered Method.

I initially bought it because I was sick of the chemical smell and liked the idea of non-toxic cleaners- especially being pregnant at the time.

I picked up the wood cleaner and all-purpose cleaner, and oh my.

It smelled SO good!

I didn’t realize it would actually make cleaning enjoyable.  It was like I was looking for a reason to wipe off the table just for a whiff of that almond smell.  I soon changed all of my cleaners throughout my house- bathrooms, windows, etc., and while I still don’t jump up and down at the thought of cleaning, at least the experience is better.

The secret- find ways to enjoy the seemingly mundane parts of life…like cleaning counters and toilets.
