John and I just moved to a new place with only days (hours?) to go before our second baby arrives and as I mentioned before, I have been in crazy nesting mode. This flurry of third trimester activity has included but is not limited to: faux wallpapering a huge wall in the shared nursery, getting on my hands and knees and scrubbing the tub into oblivion, washing item after item of baby clothing and linens that I own, sterilizing all the bottles and pacifiers that this child might come in contact with, and wiping down every last surface of our space at least ten times. Needless to say, I want to welcome this baby into a squeaky clean home.
Thankfully, I have partnered with Lemi Shine just in time to get the job done right! That means, no toxic chemicals or harsh ingredients that would be unsafe for me to inhale or for any member of my family to come in contact with.
Briar is in this awesome stage of wanting to help me with almost every task, especially anything that allows her to use the step stool at the kitchen counter. When I’m busy loading the dishwasher or preparing a meal, I keep her occupied by filling the sink with a little bit of water and Lemi Shine concentrated dish soap and let her “wash” her own plastic bowls and cups.
Let me tell you, she takes her job very seriously! I get such a kick out of her enthusiasm plus I don’t have to worry about her tender skin encountering harsh chemicals.
When it comes to the bathroom, I like things to be CLEAN. No toothpaste left in the sink, no hair in the tub, no towels hung haphazardly on the rack, and no spots on the mirrors. Thankfully, Lemi Shine’s Glass + Surface cleaner as well as their Shower + Tile spray gets the job done right.
Life with a toddler (and another baby on the way) is a messy job. Briar’s latest trick involves taking bites out of all the fruit on the table and leaving them scattered throughout the house. I mean, I love this girl to pieces but the sticky spots and the toddler teeth marks on all our produce are not exactly my jam.
Luckily Lemi Shine makes all kinds of household products that keep everything from my countertops to my floors in tip top shape. I’m so thrilled to have found them right before we add another baby to our family and take everyday messes to a whole new level! You can find Lemi Shine products sold at a store near you. (P.S. Don’t forget to bring coupons before you shop!)
