pattyClink Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House (1682* d) RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House 30 Jul 18

Greetings from the road, where one learns to be grateful not to be in the path of the forest fires, yikes what people are going through.

For cleaning products my best discovery has been "Fabuloso", it's a concentrated mild cleaner sold in the dollar stores, comes in a couple scents including apple. No sudsing, rinsing, no residue, excellent for wiping down walls, appliances, counters, glass, etc., even easy on the hands, learned about it from some pro cleaners.   They also like to use the trick of folding a cloth into 4ths, using each side til grubby, fling in a 'used' pile, get a fresh one. Then launder them all. Faster and better than wringing things out in an increasingly filthy bucket. I like to use microfiber cloths, but I wish they didn't need separate laundering from regular fabrics to stay effective.

And yes, washing out the bathroom sink with a detergent or shampoo, and a scrubby sponge, works as well and no nasty chemicals or sprays or 'etching' of surface. And the towel/shower kept my shower stall pristine til trade-in time, which was great.   

As far as the clutter, well, it's embarrassing how much crap I am carrying around, which i discovered when I had to move into the new RV coach. Took 5 hours in the blazing sun to move stuff over, and many things still not 're-homed'. Will be scratching my head and culling some things in the next few days.
