Cleaning for Baby: A Job That Never Ends

Here’s the understatement of the year; having a baby changes everything. I knew prior to having my son that my whole world was going to change, and it has. My priorities, my interests, even my career has changed since becoming a mom.

But by far, the biggest difference that being a mom has made in me; I’m a better housekeeper. It’s funny because I have no time for housework with an ornery little baby chasing me around.

From knocking over plants, to dragging things in from outside, to tracking in mud, our mischievous pets could single handedly keep the vacuum industry afloat. But one of the biggest problems caused by our lovable little friends is something they have no control over; they shed!

Unless you are a proud owner of one of the few breeds of dogs who don’t shed, or you have one of those hairless cats, you have undoubtedly battled pet hair issues. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how many times you vacuum your carpet and furniture, those fine little hairs just won’t come up.

To Vacuum First, or to Dust First ? That is the Question!

Dust vs Vacuum

Cleaning… It’s a dirty job, but somebody has to do it. After cleaning our homes over and over we develop a routine that we could complete in our sleep. It probably goes a little something like this: pick up, dust, vacuum… or is it vacuum and then dust?It’s an age-old debate, to dust first, or to vacuum first. There is no middle of the road here folks, you’re either on one side or the other. It’s a debate that divides households, pits mother against daughter, tears apart friendships…

Ok so it’s not that big of a deal, but seriously who is right?
