The Rhythm and Blues of House Cleaning~
In the mood for fall, changing ambience home I clean
I dust and I sneeze, polish the woods to sparkling look
Mop the floor and fly slide while I rock and roll
To the rhythm and blues of house cleaning blues
I’m no hoarder yet there is a silent boarder
The scooper exploded, alas, the vacuum doesn’t suck!
Open the windows, let some fresh air in
House is contaminated with flatulence afloat
The soup is boiling spilling bubbles on the range
Next up is the kitchen, pile of dishes and broken glass
What a clutter in the sink, Oh woman thou art loosed
My heartfelt gratitude to the dishwasher genius.
Ball of anxiety, is it a sign of OCD, germ-a-phobic maybe
Whisking stress, rid of some pest, where’s the broomstick?
A breath of fresh air is all I need, so to the laundry room I proceed
Sniff the fresh cotton scent of that breezy fabric sheets
While I try to solve the mystery of the missing socks.
Fold the clothes forget the crease; it’ll be the same after a week.
The bathroom is waiting, toilet rim is grimy
Like an old flowerpot that is grungy, where are the gloves?
Scrub the tub; rub a dub dab, Jacuzzi's now ready for some sudsy
The counter top is overflowing, perfume bottles everywhere
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s that woman behind the wall?
Showing some beauty of her age, in her natural way except for the hair.
Oh, the bed I have to do so the house would look divine
Then I could kneel and pray with a grateful heart
For the Lord has blessed me with a comfy roof on my head
This humble abode, many would envy though room is not so many
For neither its size nor the look that matters but whom I share it with
A loving family and friends even the gnomes at the garden.
Welcome to my humble abode!
Quick green tips on cleaning the house:
1. Use an old unmatched sock, slip it in your hand and dust as you go.
2. Vinegar is an inexpensive easy cleaner that can be used on windows and mirrors.
3. Soak the dishes and while soaking, clear out trash from the floor and counter top.
4. Lemon is one of the strongest food acids that is effective against most household bacteria.
5. Commercial air fresheners only mask the smell in your house. Having houseplants helps diminish the odor in the home.
