Today I have two different types of cleaning tips for you – one for the not-so-urgent and another for the urgent.

I am a contributor at A Bowl Full of Lemons – last week I showed how to clean a stand mixer. Have a couple minutes? Get the holiday baking leftovers off your mixer in a couple minutes with my step-by-step directions.

When the flu or illness strikes your house – what’s your first reaction? Of course I take care of the sickies first, but there are a couple quick things you can do to help fight the spread of illness. I am also a contributor on Life…Your Way,  my post about 7 Things to Clean When Illness Strikes has some great tips.

Anything you’d like me to give you step-by-step directions on how to clean? I’m taking requests for a new series and I’d love to hear your questions in the comments!
