Murphy's Oil Soap
Murphy's Oil Soap is one of my very good friends.
You've probably all heard of the little trick to make your husband think you've started supper even when you haven't is to saute an onion?
Well, Murphy's Oil Soap is like that, but for housecleaning.
I should tell you that my method of "dusting" is to blow really hard as I stand in front of the shelf or tv cabinet.
If it is particularly dirty, I may even tuck my hand in my sleeve and give it a swipe, but only very occasionally.
This is probably why on my cleaning days, I really like to wash the surfaces instead of just "dust" them. 'Cause, see, I don't really "dust".
An added bonus is that if I leave the house and come back inside, it smells like I've really been cleaning!
It's sort of like the "spic and span" smell in your bathroom smells like you've been cleaning, but this is milder smell--for wood.
If, like Bonnie, you had not previously hear of Murphy's Oil soap, you can find it in any cleaning product section at Target, Wal-Mart, etc.
Too bad I won't get any royalties off of my little advertisement for this...
