Inexpensive, stiff-bristled paint brushes--in a variety of widths--are a great addition to the cleaning tote. Use them to dust the tops of books, whisk dirt from baseboards and corners, clean dust from blinds, and remove crumbs from upholstery.
It's a new week in the Cleaning Grand Plan Challenge: we're diving into dining areas with Dining Room Week.
The dining room table is a busy center of family life. It's where the family eats--and does a whole lot more. This week, we'll declutter, deep-clean and organize the dining room or dining area, and tackle any associated activity centers.
Ready? Time to bring order to the dining room in the Cleaning Grand Plan Challenge!
The dining room table: it's a busy hub of family life! It's where we eat our meals and discuss the day with family members--but for most of us, this space does a whole lot more. Crafts projects. Homework. Bill-paying and paperwork. How to reconcile all the different activities?
This week, we'll declutter, deep-clean and organize the dining room, then consider whether our dining space houses any additional activity centers.
As the week progresses, we'll share tips to organize multiple use areas. Using an "activity center" approach, we'll bring order to crafting and desk areas, and consider ways to share space efficiently in close quarters.
Finally, we'll make a tabletop check, to be sure we can set a pretty table for upcoming Spring holidays.
Ready? Let's dive into Dining Room Week--and get organized!
