Martha Project: Day 10: Monthly & Seasonal Cleaning

Posted by Caroline on 9:00 AM in , , ,
Today, I looked through the monthly and seasonal cleaning lists that Martha recommends. I decided to spread out the tasks over the four weeks in each month and when the seasons change. To speed this along a little, I'll just let you know about when I'll be completing the monthly and seasonal cleaning instead of going through a whole month, like I did with the weekly cleaning. This will allow me to start getting into the nitty gritty.

Here is the cleaning break down.

NuGrout is a powerful and affordable system designed to easily change the color of grout the professional way. NuGrout gives old tile areas a fresh new appearance making them look new again. It is ideally suited for remodeling jobs, preparing a home for sale or an investment property. NuGrout can also be used to correct color on newly installed grout. http://os-homebasedbusiness.com/

Okay, I'm worn out just skimming the list! I love this concept of working through the book!
