Tenner Week Spring Clean Feb / Mar 2018: Friday
Aaaaannnnd we’ve nearly made it to the weekend, in spite of the storms and the snow. Another day, another spring cleaning activity – and it’s a quick one because it’s Friday and we all have other things we’d rather be doing. Today we’re going to do a super quick clean of our door handles.
It’s still cold and flu season, unfortunately, so let’s do a quick blitz where those germs might be hanging out.
All you have to do is this:
- Wipe those door handles down with antibacterial cleanser and a clean cloth, or some anti-bac wipes.
- If you don’t have any anti-bac, just use everyday cleanser because it’s still useful.
- Scrub up the handles on the front door, room doors, fridge door, kitchen and bathroom cabinets.
- Wipe other spots on the doors that might get fingerprints on them.
- If you have extra time, clean around the kitchen and bathroom taps, and phone handsets too.
That shouldn’t take too long, so you should be able to speed through it in just a few minutes. As always, if you’re too busy to do a daily activity during the week, the tasks are designed to fit together so you can catch up with them at a convenient time over the weekend.
What’s happening here
It was another day of disrupted trains here yesterday, so our freebie evening out was cancelled. We stayed in, made a Spanish tortilla and salad, and caught up on the box set of Save Me instead, which was better than getting stranded somewhere in the cold. I also gave the junk drawer some elbow grease and it’s all tidied up now. The worst bit was going out in the snow to put the ‘throw away / recycle’ pile in the bins at the end – but you don’t get that sense of completion until it’s all out of the house.
Keeping warm was more interesting than going out to the shops, and I’ve deliberately avoided reading those special offer emails from my favourite stores and deleted a bunch of eBay alerts so there’s been less temptation to ‘pick up a bargain’ (read… ‘ruin my budget’ …if we’re being more honest). The grocery stocks and menu are just about holding up too, which is encouraging.
I’m planning on doing today’s clean in a lightning strike this morning after I’ve cleared away the breakfast things. Already have the antibacterial spray and a clean cloth at the ready so it won’t take long at all.
Total spent so far: £0.00
