Happy New Year Clean My Space Nation!

Rather than talking about New Years Resolutions I figured I would talk about some bad cleaning habits (myself included) and I’ll show you how to break them!

– Using too much cleaning product
– Moldy bathmats and shower curtains
– Using dirty cleaning tools (https://youtu.be/RjEes3PosPU)
– Disinfecting wipes
– Piling up damp towels & cloths
– Using bleach as a cleaner
– Leaving dirty dishes in the sink
– Holding on to old stuff
– Cluttered surfaces
– Using too much paper towel

Comment Question: What bad habit do you need to break?






  1. I am curious as to what kind of cleaner you were using in the spray bottles in your video. Was it a homemade solution and if so, do you share the recipe?

  2. I clean with bleach all the time and clean my dishes with bleach as well. But after this video im not uaing bleach anymore. Sometimes i just feel like all purpose cleaners dont clean ! If that makes sense at all. Great video im guilty 🤔

  3. I use bleach! I hate germs, and I know that bleach is one of the only things that kills viruses that cause stomach illness. I usually spray it on my toilet and kitchen sink a few times per week to disinfect, and then clean them separately as well.

  4. Hi, great video! 👍🏼 so my guess is you do not use bleach because of the toxic chemicals? What about the candles you are burning on the mantle? Those a very toxic, please read up on that. Just concerned for your breathing environment too!

  5. I’d like an answer to a question that my husband and I discuss all the time. If a manufacturer of laundry product says to use a full cup of whatever, is a whole cup really necessary or are they just selling more product? We are reminded of the old “rinse and repeat” printed on shampoo bottles when it was found that your hair was clean the first time and the second was just to make you buy more shampoo faster. Your comment about piling excessive detergents on top of dirty laundry, is a common debate between us.

    • Cup and scoop are sort of the same thing in the laundry detergent world. Using the cap is a good place holder for an actual measuring cup. You probably don’t need so much detergent. I’d suggest experimenting a little to see how much works best for your washing machine since that can play a huge role in how much you need for each load. Thanks for your comment!
