Here are the February jobs and how I did.
kitchen windows (done)
cabinet fronts (done)
vac curtains (not done)
wipe trash can (done)
clean under disposal cover (done)
dust vents (done)
dust doors (done)
dust baseboards (done)
dust entry light (done)
turn mattress (not done)
dust baseboards (not done) I'll do this when I dust in there next
I don't feel so bad about not getting to all of the above jobs because of some of the extras I did get to. Like this one...
The vent above my microwave has never been cleaned. It's a job I never thought of. Actually, in all of my researching about cleaning I don't ever remember someone else suggesting it, either. I would wipe the outside but never be able to reach the dust inside. Here's what it looked like:
Look at the greasy dust on the edge. It looks like fur.
I unscrewed the cover and put it in the sink. I sprayed it with Shaklee H2 degreaser and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, I wiped it off. It really didn't take much scrubbing.
Here's what I ended up with:
I also cleaned above my stove (I guess I didn't take a picture.) I have wiped that area before but it is tough to get off all that grease. I used Shaklee H2 degreaser again. It looks much better. I had previously cleaned the fan covers (see here) but this time I also cleaned the light fixture cover (another area that had never been cleaned) and it is so much brighter.
With those HUGE jobs being finished, I don't fee so bad about not getting to the kitchen curtains or office baseboards.
