It’s the Little Things #78
Happy Friday! It’s been a bit since I’ve shared my ‘little things’ with you and I’m excited to be back with my favorites from the week. My hope is that these posts spark a little something with you, give you an idea or solve a problem for you too. It might be a quote, a print, what I’m reading, a favorite podcast, a playlist, a recipe, a helpful tip, a cleaning product, or something I added to our home. Basically if it’s something little that I feel is shareable or if it’s something I’d bring up to a friend over coffee or on the phone, I’m probably going to share it with you here. Here’s a link to all of the posts in this series.
I love this sentiment and free download from Lily & Val – I love what she says, “despite our differences and distances we’re in this together”. So sweet and an important reminder right now.
One of my kids’ favorite summer ‘rainy day’ activities is putting Art for Kids Hub on the tv via YouTube. I reminded them of this show during this quarantine and they’ve been really getting into drawing along with the family that puts on the show. The premise is that in each show, the dad draws something alongside one of the four kids – my boys have been into the cars and Star Wars characters. It’s fun, creative, and requires listening and following along – great skills to learn. I grabbed these colored pencils for them and these markers. We’ve been home for three weeks and they’ve done at least a lesson a day.

I’m determined to master my Instant Pot and this quarantine with the combination of this post from Pinch of Yum might just do it. The post is titled 16 Magical Ways to Use Your Instant Pot and it’s well, magical. Yogurt, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, soups, popcorn, hard boiled eggs…
Did you see the Spring Edition of Clean Mama Quarterly? Little habits, small acts, things that seemingly have no impact on anyone outside of our homes but they mean so much. I wanted to bring you something NEW, different and a little pause in your season. That’s how the Clean Mama Quarterly began. I find that this helps me slow down so I have time to do some of the things that are really important. You know the things that make life fun and memorable? Let’s do more of those.
Grab the Spring Quarterly in the shop here!
The Kindle/ebook version of Clean Mama’s Guide to a Healthy Home is $1.99 on Amazon – this is the lowest price I have seen it. If you don’t have it yet, grab your copy here – it’s the book I wish I had 10 years ago!
What have you been enjoying this week? Any little things to share?

Thanks for sharing about the Art Hub.. my youngest loves to draw and color.
My husband and and I live in a 6 br, 6 bath home and our grown children and grandchildren come and visit. I want to transition over to clean products and your method of cleaning. Love it!
I have purchased a few products from you already, the4 pre printed spray bottles, duster, essential oils, mop. I want to purchase more. I would like to know what cloths you use for which cleaning projects?
I.e. All purpose microfiber towels?
Polishing microfiber Towels?
Reversible Terry towel?
Flour sack Towels?
Bar mop towels?
Petite bar mop towels?
I also would like to purchase some blue buckets but would like to know the dimensions so I can plan where to store them
I also want to know how you sanitize the upholstered furniture. I have a different steamer.
You quick response would be appreciated as I am in the mist of cleaning and reorganizing every day during shut down.
Stay well, thank you,

All purpose microfiber towels – bathrooms and dusting
Polishing microfiber Towels – mirrors, window, stainless
Reversible Terry towel – kitchen hand towel
Flour sack Towels – drying dishes, some cleaning
Bar mop towels – wiping down kitchen counters and some cleaning
Petite bar mop towels – wiping down kitchen counters
The blue buckets are from IKEA, I am not sure on the exact dimensions. I use the steamer over furniture to sanitize – I have an upholstery attachment and I use that.
I hope that helps!
