July Habit: Swish & Swipe

Monthly Habit: July Ė Swish and swipe
Welcome to July! We are at the start of a brand new month and that means itís time for a brand new habit. This month, weíll be working on the Swish and Swipe of the bathroom. With this one simple habit, our bathrooms can stay company ready at any time. Check out the great info below to get started.

The simple habits we establish can help us to never see dirt again.

What does Swish and Swipe Mean?

Now this is not the crisis cleaning because company is coming and you have not touched the bathroom in months. This is a daily maintenance that keeps it company ready all the time! I know many of you donít think that this needs to be done but I assure you that you deserve to clean and fresh smelling bathroom all the time too.

It donít take much time to do this either. This is why I called it a swish and a swipe. Doesnít that sound like a lick and a promise! Quick and easy! Here is how it works and once you establish this habit, your bathroom will never look and smell dirty again.

To accomplish this you need a couple of things to keep in your bathroom. I have my favorite window cleaner in each bathroom just for this purpose along with a roll of paper towels or old wash cloths. You can use what ever you like just so you donít have to leave the room to swish and swipe. You will have no excuse to get sidetracked if you will do this.

Here is the swipe part. I take the window cleaner and a rag and wipe off the mirror and then the counter, faucets and sink. Bam it is just that fast.Then take the toilet bowl brush and swish it around in the toilet. Even if you donít use any soap; you will keep stuff from growing in there. Then wipe off the back of the toilet with the used paper towel or rag, then the seat, the rim and lastly the sides and floor. If you have little boys you know how they miss. Then toss the rag in the laundry or the paper towel in the trash. When you do this once a day you will find that your toilet is always fresh as a daisy.

There you have it Swish and Swipe! This takes all of about 1 minute from start to finish but you have to have everything in the bathroom so you have no excuses to not do this.

Now go gather up some window cleaner for the bathroom and look in the bathroom closet for some shampoo or some cleaner that will work for swishing the toilet. Nothing says I LOVE YOU like a Clean toilet to throw up in when you are sick!
