Simply Clean was brought to my attention when I was browsing my local library’s patron’s reviews. The person that reviewed this book was put off by the 10 minutes a day cleaning method. They decided it was a ridiculous idea to be able clean all your bathrooms in 10 minutes and they decided not to finish reading the book. I was intrigued by their review because when my kids were little I used to do the Fly Lady system. I remember from my Fly Lady days the idea of maintenance is the key on how you keep your house looking company ready and not having to go on big cleaning sprees. It’s just doing a task regularly that makes it so you never have to spend long periods cleaning it.
So, the idea of cleaning bathrooms in 10 minutes didn’t seem totally unrealistic to me as it did to the reviewer I mentioned above. I know the first time you do it it can take longer than 10 minutes to clean but if you keep up with it (maintenance) it can be done fairly quickly. I don’t time myself so I have no clue if it takes 10 minutes or not but it doesn’t feel like a long time because the house never gets out of hand.
I paired reading this book with joining Ms. Rapidchuk’s facebook cleaning group where you get daily motivation along with 29,000+ others doing the same thing as you. I found the cleaning system in this book easy to follow. It’s broken down into daily task which with anything that is repeated daily can become mundane but that’s why I appreciate the facebook group.
Included in the book are recipes for natural cleaners which I haven’t tried yet. Plus detailed cleaning challenges. Basically it’s a book on cleaning and how to go about doing it most efficiently.
