She sat for a minute in my kitchen and I offered her a cold cloth. Then she headed for the bathroom. I was so glad I had done my swish and swipe for the…

Swish and Swipe in Every Room

Dear FlyLady, I was so impressed with how well the swish & swipe worked in the bathroom that I found a way to use it in every room. Now, as I go into each room in the morning or afternoon, I think S&S. While I’m waiting for my breakfast to be ready I wipe down the microwave, toaster oven, and the fridge, dust mop the kitchen floor (I have 2 cats & a dog). By this time my breakfast is ready and the cats have finished theirs. I…

Swish and Swipe Snapped me out of my Blues

Dear FlyLady, Thank you for making swish and swipe this month’s habit, when I started at the beginning of the month I thought of it only as a way to keep the icky ring that seemed to be a semi-permanent addition to my toilet at bay. Little did I know that it would be so much more. I have always struggled with stress management/anxiety and when you combine my already high stress work environment that leaves me over loaded and stressed on…

July Habit #21 My Number One Concern

…habit of swishing and swiping. My number one concern was that I didn’t really dare to brush my teeth or go to the bathroom. Both the toilet and the sink were so dirty I couldn’t really look at them. So I began to swish and swipe. The first day, it took me half an hour, a lot of soap, a couple of rags and the odd gag, but I have kept at it and since a couple of days, the toilet looks new again. Who knew it could be nice and sparkling…

July Habit #9 I Like This Habit The Best

…e tiles on the floor, and every little grain of dirt or stray hair SHOWS! I kept telling my DH we needed to redo that bath (Powder blue sink and toilet, circa 1969…yuk!) but I wanted a new floor too. Well, I started to swish and swipe, and first I had to admit that even the hard water marks on the powder blue are MUCH less visible after a daily swish and swipe. But, since our bathroom is tiny, with less than 5 ft by 5 ft. of floor, I…
