5 Chic Cleaning Supplies for the Modern Mom

 5 Chic Cleaning Supplies for the Modern Mom | featured on @thismessisours
Whether you love it or loathe it, cleaning is one of those things that just has to get done..  all the time. My time spent at home these days is spent either making a mess or cleaning one up. Instead of dreading this constant chore, I’ve learned to enjoy cleaning my house. Honestly!
 
I look at it like a collection of little victories. The feeling I get when I look at the floor after breakfast, not good. But then I do a super quick sweep and aah, what a difference. There’s a win! I try to wash all the dishes before bed because waking up to an empty sink… Although short-lived, is a total win.  Maybe it’s the instant gratification, but staying on top of the daily chores makes me feel good, dare I say productive even, and I’d say that’s another win. 
 
Obviously, cleaning tools are essential, so why not take the opportunity to let your personality shine. I mean if you’re going to be dancing around your kitchen with the same broom every night, it might as well be nice to look at. 
Check out this list of cleaning essentials that’ll make you love staying on top of the little everyday messes too!

5 Chic Cleaning Supplies for the Modern Home | Williams-Sonoma Pop-up sponges $17/6 || Sponges are an essential cleaning tool. So essential, in fact, they are usually left in the sink for everyone to see. So why not make them worth looking at? These pop-up sponges are brilliant (hello under sink storage solution) and come in fun, bright, cheery colors (or natural, if that's your thing). I don't know about you but a fun sponge makes that stack of dirty dishes at least slightly less menacing. | featured on @thismessisours
