My husband made it to Bonnoroo after 13 hours and driving straight through the night. Now him and buddies are waiting in a tremendously long line just to get into the fest. I'm instead listening to music at home and attempting to clean up some around here.
I found one generic magic eraser in the cupboard this morning and decided to tackle the walls. Haha... it only lasted for one small wall. I love Mr. Clean. He's awesome and his magic erasers are amazing. After quickly using the generic one I'd found stashed away I was seriously considering running to the store to buy more. Of course this genius move would blow my budget and I've always hated buying one use cleaning items. I tried the multi purpose cleaner but there's just something about wall smudges... they're so stubborn and magic erasers are the only thing I've ever been able to get all the gunk off with. Ok, our walls haven't been painted in a long time. The paint on them is flat (which collects smudges like a magnet). I don't even really understand where all the marks come from but they sure do accumulate.
So I'm contemplating spending a load on magic erasers and then it dawns on me: baking soda. "I betcha backing soda will work." I am by no means a cleaning expert. I was raised by a single mom who NEVER cleaned, let alone did she pass down her cleaning skills to her daughters (maybe she passed down her lack of cleaning skills to us). Actually I grew up in a house that looked alot like those homes on that show hoarders. I actually can't watch that show cause I get flash backs and it makes me sick to my stomach. I've never tried baking soda on my walls before but let me tell you it works, like magic! All I did was wet a cloth, sprinkle on some baking soda, rub it in, wring, and wipe down the walls. Love the quick elbow grease free results and just thought I'd share. Also, really glad I didn't run out and pick up more magic erasers.
