So these 15 Cleaning Tips are for me!

I can imagine my house saying to my guests things like…

Dear Guest, thank you because my owner scrubbed behind the toilet for the very first time in months.

Thank you, because every bed smells fresh and clean.

Thank you, because the floor has been mopped,

the mirrors are sparkling, and the bathtub doesn’t have any laundry inside.

Thank YOU.
