Parenting Tip #73 – If you write to-do lists on the bathroom mirror for your littles, they find it it 1000% more interesting than if you just ask them to do stuff. At least that’s true in my house . . . maybe because I include little boxes for them to check off?
I can’t help you with the fact that at some point the bathroom mirror will look like a Jackson Pollock painting, though. Mine is often spattered with homemade coconut oil soap and tooth powder, because apparently brushing teeth and washing hands can be contact sports if you try hard enough. (Toothbrush sword fight, anyone?)
Fortunately, this easy, inexpensive homemade window and glass cleaner delivers streak-free results.
