Keeping your house clean is a full time job….ESPECIALLY if you have toddlers! The toy explosion can seem like a never ending, daunting task to keep under control. With a few quick changes and a little added fun, cleaning can become a fun activity for you and your busy toddler!

Let’s be honest, my house is hardly ever 100% tidy..unless my little monsters are asleep, of course! But, I try my hardest to keep it CLEAN. Your home, even if you clean daily is a germ fest! It is so important to keep your home as clean and sanitary as possible. Keeping your home clean and sanitary is extremely important when you have little ones around. Your bathroom and kitchen are the germiest places in your house! But, with all those toddler and kid germs going around, your play room and kid’s rooms can be quite the germ gathering as well.  With babies mouthing toys and toddlers basically being germ factories, keeping your house clean is the easiest way to keep your family healthy and illness free.
