410 northfield

What can I say?

I like to clean.
I do.

I love the satisfaction that results from removing dust, dirt, grim, sticky residue, and smudges.

Over the years I have developed a few special techniques. Like, using pumice stones to remove rust stains on toilets and Q-tips and rubbing alcohol on sticky surfaces and little in-between spaces.

Our friend Amanda was going to be out of her house ALL day yesterday and I knew it was my opportunity to make my move.

I recruited Paige.
I took some notes and drew up a game plan.
I gathered all my rags, vacuums, and cleaning supplies.

The 410

This was going to be a big surprise for Amanda!!! We were so excited!

We worked so hard the whole day and were totally exhausted by the end. It was so worth it though because I couldn't think of a more deserving friend than Amanda.

To be honest their house was not that dirty -- but having an almost two year old, priorities shift and Amanda has been wanting to deep clean but just hasn't had the time. Paige and I had the time, so we knew it was time to clean!
