I just wanted a house that didn’t look like a house out of an episode of Hoarders.

These rags come in a mesh bag you can use to wash them in. Since you are reusing these rags, you’re also living “green”! They’re worth every penny, and IÂ recommendÂ them.
I can say from experience that her daily emails helped change my routine and made cleaning so much easier and quicker. She helps to keep you on track, and helps to avoid getting sidetracked, which was one of my biggest problems.
