Hit me with your best shot

As you know we are in the process of moving, which means for me deep cleaning, the likes of which I rarely do. So I come to you, fair blog readers. What are your best cleaning tips? My qualifications are as follows; inexpensive, fast, easy. I'm asking for a miracle cleaner that cleans everything....anyone got any suggestions?

409 baby! I clean everything with that. If you have hard water build up, just good ole vinegar. I hope you are not doing this all by yourself!!!

There is very little you can't do with lemon, vinegar, and baking soda.

ooh ooh, yes!!! The best cleaner I have ever found is baking soda mixed in with dish soap until it makes a thick paste... it makes everything sparkle. I also just bought the simple mom spring cleaning ebook which has homemade cleaners at the end. I'll go check them out now... call me!

that was shayla. Cory does't get excited about homemade cleaners like I do.

I don't know if you have glass shower walls or not, but if you do, coat them lightly with laundry pre-soak. Let it sit while you cover the whole wall/window. With the scrubber side of a sponge, agitate the cleanser gently and rinse. Takes off all the soap scum and water spots without nasty chemicals and hard scrubbing!
For my money (very little $) regular ammonia is the best cleaner. (Not lemon-scented or foaming.) Pour about an inch in a spray bottle and fill with water. It costs practically nothing and cuts grease instantly. I even like the smell!

Hmmm...do you think I could get a job writing copy for an ad agency???

I LOVE 409 too! But I haven't found anything that Mr. Clean Magic Erasers can't get off - for all those dirty little marks from adorable little fingers! Wish I could be there to help! Love you!
