  1. Great giveaway!

    I try to keep to a housework schedule... which sounds really boring and silly, but it means I can do little bits of housework most days and avoid the place becoming a dump site. (And stops me having to do housework for hours at a time, which just depresses me!)

  2. I could just say "clean it!" but maybe you want something more specific LOL. At the moment my hubby and have marked Wednesday as cleaning day and we tackle jobs together, but I also clean through out the week too. I mean the washing pile breeds at night I am sure! And I work too, so doing the Wednesday thing really helps!

  4. I always do my housework on a Friday. The house is then nice for the weekend in case anyone drops in! I like to burn a nice smelling melt to give the house a fresh smell.

  5. I like to put a couple drops of lavender oil in the vacumn cleaner bag to keep the house smelling great.

  6. A bit of vanilla extract when wiping out the fridge makes it smell like melting moments every time you open the door..

    I also like to start with the easy things that 'appear' to make the most difference because it makes me feel like I've achieved something right away.. then I get to bog myself down with the million little things that no one can tell you've done that take forever. I used to do it the other way, but it was so depressing never being able to "see" my progress!

  7. I like leaving all my windows open and then I get the sea breeze.

    Also I am entering on behalf of my sister in Aussie

  8. I use a couple of drops of lemon or lime oil on a rag tied over my cobweb brush and run that around the corners of the ceilings. Smells so fresh and lovely, but not too overpowering!

  10. To be able to open the windows to let lots of fresh air in is a great idea but if its too cold to do that I then like to burn incense :) Thanks for the chance to win one of these great prizes. I of course follow your blog and also follow you on FB :) Hugs Vicki x

  11. I try to open doors and windows whenever the weather permits. I even have one door under the alfresco now that I can open when it's raining!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Open the windows unless it is stinking hot.
    Use vinegar in everything - the dishwasher, the washing machine and on any glass.
    Leave an open container of bi-carb in the fridge and laundry.

  13. I'm with Mhairi - open the windows & doors as much as possible. I also try to do little bits of cleaning often so it doesn't get to be too much at once. Sometimes I not that successful at that! Tracee xx

  14. I hate housework but love the way carpet feels after being cleaned, particularly since I got a Dyson vacuum cleaner they are really nice to walk on.
    I do have sort of a plan, washing big things like towels and sheets opposite weeks,making sure that the floor gets swept most days if I am home and mopped every week

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am a big fan of vinegar and bicarb for cleaning, opening all the windows and doors (if it isn't too hot outside), scented candles or oilburners sometimes, and I have an Air Wick freshmatic in most of my main rooms. The Vanilla and Soft Cashmere is lovely. :)

  17. I open windows and doors whenever I can. I also do a bit of housework every day. This means that it doesn't get out of hand and it doesn't feel like I'm spending my entire life cleaning.

  18. Mainly trying to pee the dog on a regular basis. He's old and can't hold it. Lame, right?

    ReplyDelete
  19. A clean kitchen sink makes me feel so much better. Even with a d/washer I love to scrub the sink.

  20. don't have kids. no just joking (not really). I like to have the windows open even if it's a little fresh, because Ironically it helps keep the house fresh.

    ReplyDelete
  21. My husband thinks I am too clean. nothing is better than looking around at night when the house is clean.

    I love a nice smelling house. I love it on a nice sunny day to open the blinds and the windows.

    ReplyDelete
  22. My Mum used to say that I'd she didn't get around to cleaning the house, she used to just spray Mr Sheen around and that way, people just presumed it's clean! I like to burn candles...something fresh like vanilla, lime, or lemon....it makes the house smell refreshing. Bx

  23. The freshness for me comes with opening up my home to the world! I can clean to my hearts content, but only fresh air breezing through my home keeps it feeling snappy and luscious to live in

    ReplyDelete
  24. Getting the dishes done and make sure surfaces are clean - benches, floors... because by the time you get to making sure they are wiped down you have cleaned all the mess that was on top of them lol.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Do a little bit at a time. If I wait until a have a few hours to do everything, it would never happen!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Windows open, if I can bear the flys. I have a laundry tip, white vinegar diluted to spray on arm pits of stinky shirts. I do think it helps get rid of the smell.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Open windows, let the fresh air in as often as possible, in summer fans on and keep house clean, no clothes on floors. jessica@ wrappersay.com.au and I just liked your FB site and subscribed to your blog. Looking forward to reading your posts.

  28. I love to do this handy trick- I put a bowl of water in the microwave with half a lemon in it. Turning on the microwave for 1 minute makes the whole house smell so nice! The other half I put in the fridge with a few drops of vanilla essence, so my fridge smells awesome, regardless of what my small kids leave in there!

  29. Teaching your kids to put away their things from a young age keeps the house fresh, tidy and also teaches them good life skills. We all work together to get things done in our house so even though my kids are 11,5 & 16months they all help, yes even our 16month old helps! We make it fun to put things away. I also love flowers from my garden to freshen up a room and my front door open as the 'bubble gum tree' makes our house smell delicious.

  30. I use windex on everything, I love the smell. Or try vinegar and baking soda

  31. I always struggle to keep on top of the cleaning. I tell myself that I don't reminder whether our house was sparkling clean when I was young, I only remembered whether my mum had time for us. I hope my children will remember the same! The tidying up has become much easier since we created a playroom, all the toys stay in there so I can easily mop, wipe, dust and clean the rest of the house without having to pick up bits and pieces everywhere.

  32. I can honestly say I have never had a (fully) clean house for 18tmhs. I don't get three to four hours to myself to clean it all at once (My 15mth old follows me with the vacuum and tries to eat the cord) by myself. So I do a little each day when the little ones are asleep. Sometimes I get tied up cleaning and don't get my cuppa in and then I get totally frustrated. Sometimes a clean shower is just not worth it if I don't have my cuppa!!!

  33. I have air wick automatic sprayers. They are awesome. I come home to a great smelling place!

  34. My favourite tip for keeping the house looking fresh, clean and tidy is to stay on top of the clutter! Remove items from benches, tables, any fat surface where 'stuff' tends to congregate and breed. THEN, spray those flat surfaces with vanilla spray for a beautiful, fresh, calming scent throughout the house ....... or use some Air Wick Aqua Mist ;)

  35. I like to use natural cleaners like vinegar, bi-carb and eucalyptus/lavender oil. I enjoy burning "flavoured" candles too.

  36. Always try and cleaned as i go or do a little bit each day. And open windows and doors to let the fresh air in.

  38. I would say... not having pets! Unfortunately, mine are too cute to be put outside all day, so my new best friend is the broom.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I open up all the windows and air out the house as much as possible. I think besides keeping on top of clutter and regular cleaning of the house, this makes the biggest difference.

  40. I love opening the house up as much as possible. Even when its not all that warm it just helps to freshen everything up.

  41. Living in the bush the easiest way to freshen the house is to open the doors and windows. On days the weather won't allow this some essential lavender or eucalyptus oil, mixed with a tablespoon of methylated spirits and 500ml of water makes a great air freshener spray that doesn't send my hayfever through the roof.
    Cheers,

  42. The stench of sweat obliterates my nose;
    As I succumb to washing their clothes;
    My number 1 tip that works for me;
    Is 'take the smells out to the laundry'
    Then out to the garden- pick some lavender;
    Combine with rose water and send smells running far!

  43. I've found the key is to keep the kitchen bench and sink clean. If they are clean and tidy then the rest of the house seems to look better, even if it isn't really. ;)

  44. I just try and keep surfaces clear. Floors and benches. Clutter makes me feel oppressed and dirty. I can shove it all in the corner and that's okay though, I just don't look there.

  46. My home is so small I have a DH to do most of the house work and I use candles for the cooking smells gets rid of them

  47. I think fresh air is key so I always try to open my doors/windows or get the a/c on. Another thing I do is pick up clutter or misplaced items and put it away when I see it and not wait until later.
