Bounty Paper Towels: The only way to satisfy a mild O.C.D. non-housewife.

You know what you do when you have a house to clean?

You whip out paper towels.  That’s what you do.

I’ve been prepping for the whirlwind Manhattan/New York City tourist visit of “The Sequel” — my cousin (The CFO), his wife (The Southern Bomb), their daughter–my Goddaughter (The Mini Diva) and their son (The Guy) a little later today — Wednesday, April 4.  I knew I had to get things cracking when I realized I was running out of time on the cleaning front.  (I never did put out an A.P.B.–All Points Bulletin–for a maid to rescue me.)

Sure, I sweep, but I wasn’t walking around with a mop and bucket as a follow up (actually, I don’t have a mop).  Althought I have an affinity for the Swifter (yes, I really do love you…) I needed the Mother of All ‘Chasers’ after each sweep routine.  I needed force.  I needed elbow grease.  I needed paper towels — Bounty Paper Towels.

My very handy cleaning tool.

So, I did what I do best.  Go down on my hands and knees (don’t give me that side eye…), and with rolls and rolls of paper towels (which you know I have because I went for my Costco run a few weeks ago — and they sell in BULK), I used really moistened towels to scrub/wipe those floors…every inch of whatever floors I have in my humble abode that isn’t covered by a carpet or a rug.

  • Kitchen…(not only did I sweep and use my handy Bounty paper towels, I followed up with ‘insurance’ with a Swifter pad in my hand — yes, still on my hands and knees. Crazy?  No. Thorough.)
  • Bathroom.  Same as above.  (Kitchens and bathrooms have the most germs.  They must be clean.)
  • Bedroom.
  • Living/Dining area and Foyer/Entry.

Now that I’m finished (well, almost…I still have a few things to get done in a few hours before I pick them up…sigh…where’s Florence when you need her?…Shoot, probably with Weezy and George sassing them as usual), I’m very pleased with the outcome.

Yes, I take Spring Cleaning to a whole ‘nother level.

I’ll say it now, and I’ll say it forever…

P.S. Together with my Pledge Multi-Surface Cleaner, my towels helped to get my furniture, windows and mirrors shiny and sparkling.  🙂
