My 8-year-old scrubbed the toilet… with enthusiasm!  It was awesome.  I still can’t quite believe it.  The Tea Tree Toilet Cleaner helped.

Miss Angry Chicken, one of my favourite bloggers, mentioned this book a few months back.

Of course, I do just about whatever the Chicken tells me to do, so I ordered a copy.  Over the holidays, me and my little ones made some cleaning supplies.

For you local readers, I would recommend the Voyager Soap and Candle Company for the basic ingredients.  Their prices are reasonable and they delivered to my door within 24 hours.  They even have little spritzer bottles and jars (if you don’t have those kinds of containers lying around).

W scrubbed the sink with “Sink Volcano! Sink Cleaner”, singing “rub-a-dub-dub” the entire time.

S washed the bathroom sink with some “Peppermint All-Purpose Scrub”.  This was not homemade by us, but purchased at a craft sale last year.  Here is the recipe:

Stir together:


  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar

Now we have a handy box of cleaning supply supplies!  AND three keen cleaning kidlets.

I’d like to get this book next:

    Awesome! Maybe I’ll change my vote for our next group project.
