I hate cleaning bathrooms.

I don't mind cleaning just about anywhere else, but I'll avoid cleaning bathrooms like it's the plague.

It wasn't always this way.  When I lived alone in my first little apartment, my bathroom was always clean.  It was easy!  I'd open all the windows, do a little scrubbing, take out the trash, and voila!

But then I married, and had three kids.

And...I don't think I need to say much more - ha!

There are two main reasons I don't like cleaning them now (besides the accumulative gross factor due to high volume that I didn't experience as a single gal):

1. Overwhelming smell (the chemicals!)


I don't know what it is about bathroom cleaners, but they are SO BAD!  I was always searching for cleaners without ammonia, chlorine, phthalates, sodium hydroxide, and other harmful chemicals and additives that are meant to disinfect and remove mineral buildup.

2. My Kids


Knowing most bathroom cleaners are awful for you (even my dad has reminded me as an adult to be careful not to inhale the fumes while cleaning) so I don't like my kids to help because it just seems unhealthy and a little dangerous for them.  Which means this mama has to do all the bathroom cleaning herself.  Ugh.
