Wow, that's a pretty presumptuous title up there, the "How to make your life easier". This series of posts was inspired by an email exchange I had today with one of my college best friends, a working mom herself, exhausted, overworked, and overwhelmed. I absolutely do not have the answers for her, and there are certainly many times when I am exhausted, overworked, and overwhelmed myself, but I strongly believe that we shouldn't ever feel that way.
I'd like to start sharing some tips I've picked along the way that make my life easier, and hopefully will make your life easier as well.
Enter Tip 1 - the baby wipe.
Lest you think that this tip is just for parents of small children, let me tell you straight on that this tip is for everyone. It's perfectly ok to be a single guy purchasing baby wipes.
Baby wipes can clean anything.
That's it! Baby wipes can be used to clean floors, kitchen counters, tabletops, bathroom counters, marks off the wall, hands, grime, precious objects, dust - anything you can think of, a baby wipe can most likely clean it. I'm not talking about a deep clean here; I mean the "every day" clean where you just need things to be clean.
Think about it: they are gentle enough for a baby so you know there's nothing harsh in there, they don't scratch surfaces, you can get unscented, and they can be eco-friendly (the ones I buy from Costco are made from a renewable material).
How will this make your life easier? You don't have to worry about fancy cleaning products; just a quick wipe and you're done.
Apparently I'm not the only genius with this idea.
