So Many Chores... Let's Go To The Beach #HealthyFamilies

It may be the lazy days of Summer, but chores don't disappear.  If anything, chores increase. Even though we've packed away the bulky clothes that fill the washing machine to capacity, I now have piles of  swim towels and beach blankets that will need to go to the laundromat.  The floors are mopped nearly daily because of the sandy, grassy footprints left from Princess Destructo's trips through the sprinkler.  I guess the longer sunshiney days just help dose us with Vitamin D so we're happier while doing our Summer chores.

One of my favourite childhood Summer memories is fresh laundry snapping on the clothes line.  When I was a kid I remember looking forward to the crisp fresh sheets laid on the bed at the end of the day.  So it's no wonder that my favourite LYSOL product is their new Fabric Mist.  I have been using it almost daily to freshen up our carpets, couches, and mattresses during sheet changes.

I do like to have a clean home, and it's important to stock up on quality products that don't break the bank. Here is a round up of the new LYSOL products I was sent to try in the Spring:
LYSOL® No–TouchTM Kitchen System (New 2012 product) - Lysol has created a revolutionary automatic, hands-free dispenser with a multi purpose formula that:
Powers through grease on dishes
Cleans tough messes on surfaces
Kills bacteria on hands as it gently cleanses them
All these great benefits in a no-touch design! Learn more about this great product at Check it out and see how it fits your kitchen needs.

LYSOL® Fabric Mist (New 2012 product) - offers complete freshness. Try it in place of other air & fabric fresheners and see how it addresses the odours in your home, especially if you’re a pet owner or a hockey mom, so your fabrics don't just smell fresh, but they are fresh.

LYSOL® Healthy Touch® No-Touch Hand Soap System helps eliminate the millions of germs that your hands can pick up each day! It automatically senses hands and dispenses just the right amount of soap. The system's antibacterial hand soap kills 99.9% of bacteria on hands — so it's ideal for use in the kitchen or bathroom.

LYSOL Healthy Families gives practical tips on maintaining healthy lifestyle.  Taking time out of your day to exercise or give yourself quiet time might be considered a healthy habit.  Recently I was asked about my favourite thing to do for ME time.  I work full-time, am a student, and have a young family.  Most days there is no me time, apart from the moments I lock myself in the bathroom.   So the better question is: How do I make time for cleaning and still have time to enjoy the Summer sun with my family?  I set aside smaller blocks of time to get my chores done and delegate chores to my family.  Sometimes just ignoring the chores and going to the beach is a good idea too. Out of sight, out of mind.

I'd love to know about your favourite Summer memories or a tip for getting your cleaning done efficiently to enjoy the Summer fun?

My tip is to hire a cleaning person! Lol. It's true though. You work full time, you're a student and a mom?? Kudos to you for making it all work! :)

LOL, yes a cleaning service would be a dream. Thanks for stopping by
