Even though this is not Cinderella, and I am not the evil stepmother, it is my fairytale and miracles do happen - I have started cleaning for Passover.
My house is in such neglect and Passover is just a great excuse for cleaning it. This is not the miracle thought…wait….here it is: Zoe and Ori both voluntarily (no bribery involved) helped me with the cleaning. They were scrubbing every surface they could reach, stretching on their tiptoes, having a great time.
Then the clock struck 12:00, I think it was the neighbor who knocked on the door… and my sweet princes were gone, off to play…and I was left to clean the rest of the house all by my self.
...cleaning ever after...happily!
For non toxic cleaning solution, I have used, more or less, a ratio of 1 water and 2 vinaigrette in a spray bottle.
