I Have to Clean That Too??

Let’s just say that before we got our apartment, cleaning wasn’t something I knew a lot about.  At home (as in my parent’s house), I kept my room pretty decent (no big piles or anything), I would clean up after myself, help out folding laundry, and empty the dishwasher.  I NEVER dusted.  That was pretty much the extent of cleaning I did though.  Now, I have an entire apartment to keep clean!! Over the past year, I have learned a lot about keeping our home clean…It’s actually pretty funny to think that Kyle knew better than I did!

For example:

Apparently you’re supposed to dust the lightswitches? Bar for the shower curtain? Top of the toilet paper roll?

There’s a lot more that I can’t think of at the moment, but will be added when I do.  I’ll also add more as I learn about them.  It’s never ending!!

And then there’s laundry…I’ve been doing my own laundry for years now, but one thing I never really was sure of how to wash were yellows.  For the first few months (maybe even 6 months) of our marriage, I was keeping the yellows aside waiting until we had enough and then I would just wash the yellows together.  This method was working just fine for me until Kyle brought it up to his mom one day.  I got made fun of big time for my different piles of laundry: Towels, Sheets, Whites, Colors, Jeans, and Yellows.  Now I know how to wash them though, so I guess that’s a plus. :-)
