I am sure that I am not the only one that’s wanting to make her space cleaner, prettier and well kept, especially right now when all we see are these 4 walls 24/7! I am working on the cleaning thing. Juggling the homeschooling, a growing business, cooking all the meals (no takeout here!) I am open to trying new methods of staying on top of things, while trying to not lose my mind!
I actually found this tip on one of my favorite You Tubers Instagram account, Laura Vitale. I just adore her and she shares so many amazing cooking recipes! She (unlike me) loves cleaning and such, so as I embrace this more, I figured why the heck not?! Watch me turn into an OCD cleaning freak after quarantine!
You will need just a few items to clean your micro-fiber (suede) fabric:
Dish Soap (tiny bit!)
Fabric softener (Again, tiny bit but this time for the scent!)
Fill a bowl of water with a little dish soap, dip the scrub brush and go at it!
Fill a second bowl with water and a little bit of fabric softener. Then, take a cloth and make those gorgeous swipes and lines! *see bottom photo
I just love the scent of this kind. (I’m sure you could do essential oils too, whatever floats your boat.)
I’ve tried keeping towels on the chairs, but I gave up on one in particular. Yes, more spills and drips may have happened on someone’s chair in particular and his chair was a TAD worse than most. (Do I love showing you this photo? NOPE. But if I can help another desperate mama who feels like everything is out of her control right now, then my ego can take a hike. Real life people–sticky little fingers, food, drinks, dogs–oh my!)
As you can see, the far left chair still needs another rub down (no names mentioned, but the one with the littlest hands seems to be the messiest!) I set them outside in the sun to get that extra Vitamin D and dry a tad faster.
Verdict? Totally impressed.
