Look Ma, I cleaned!

There are two rooms in my house that if I clean them during Homespun Heart’s Spring Clean 2007, I’ll be a very happy person.

The first room is the laundry room. I still have some things to do in there to feel like new owners could want it (no house sold yet, I just like to pretend I’m optimistic), but those are bigger “projects” than can be done.

Here is the “Before” picture:That “pile” on the floor is two old towels that have been my soak-it-up mat for our over flowing drain. I always forget to call Roto-Rooter.

2 hrs later I have this for a laundry room:

Here’s what I did:

-Washed the curtains
-Washed the windows, inside and out
-Threw away the gross towels, all that stuff on the top shelf and a couple other things
-Mopped liked crazy
-Cleaned the window sill and the window runner
-Wiped down the washer and dryer
-Found a new home for my irons (in the cupboard)
-Wiped down the freezer
-Called Roto-Rooter to clean the drain

Projects I’m going to still get done in there (well, someone will do):

-Fill in the cracked cement
-Paint a new layer on the floor
-Fix a leaky pipe
-Clean out the freezer (definitely really old food in there)
-Next to the freezer there are carpet scraps, I’m going to get rid of those as well

Like I said, if I don’t get any other room cleaned, I’m going to be happy anyway because I cringed every time I walked past that room. Consider this my entry Monica!

Anyone else out there spring cleaning?

    When you look at the Before picture it looks like the window is that white fuzzy supposed to be not clear type. But then the After photo shows a clear detailed view of the stairs outside. Man that window was dirty. i can’t believe you can lived with such a dirt window the horror!
