WHY Can't I Keep a Clean Home?

Sometimes we take quick action steps to remedy frustrations felt with a current state we find ourselves in without stopping to ask the deeper question; Why?

Why am I so frustrated? 
Why am I constantly running into this roadblock?
Why am I not getting traction with this project?

Getting at the underlying, “Why?” will help us to take the next necessary and strategic steps to answer the “What?” and “How?” –questions.  Otherwise, without answering – “Why?” it is as if we are putting a Band-Aid on something that really requires stitches!

If we jump ahead and try to determine How we will change?  Or What steps will we take to overcome the roadblock?  We will invariably run back into the same challenges and frustrations; simply because we did not tackle the “Why?”

If you struggle with maintaining a green, clean, home environment (like many of us do), ask yourself --“Why”?

Why do I struggle in this area?

A personal story
I have recently asked myself some “Why?” questions in the realm of green cleaning challenges I face.  One such personal question was, “Why is it a challenge to clean my bathroom countertops every day?” 

Asking myself, “Why” led to a reflective answer of, “there are too many items displayed on my countertops”.  I realized that in my hurried morning schedule, I did not want to take additional time to clear the counter before cleaning it, and therefore, I did not daily clean it!

The solution:
Take the inspirational plaques and special seashells I have on my bathroom countertop and put them on a shelf on the wall in my bathroom where I can still enjoy them, but free my sink countertop!

The results:
I CAN (and DO),  every morning, quickly wipe down my bathroom countertop with Brightly Green Bathroom Cleaner for a crisp clean bathroom!

Since I reflected on the underlying “Why?”  I was able to quickly come up with a green cleaning solution that REALLY WORKS! 

Busy households often struggle in maintaining green clean homes.
Moms and dads, don't get discouraged! 

Where is YOUR Cleaning Challenge?

Remember:  Ask yourself--“WHY?”

The next questions and steps will unfold easily!

Safe Household Cleaners for Pets and their Homes

My family recently became new pet owners.  I did not think we would have another dog, after making the difficult decision to put down our beloved family dog of 14 years --Arnold.  Pets add much to our lives and so here we are with Charlie our newest family member!  

Charlie and me
rescue dog from
Texas Pan Handle Pet Savers

As I watch our new puppy (all of 50lbs.) romp and play, I am so glad that our home is pet safe cleaned with 100% all natural non-toxic Brightly Green Cleaners.  As dogs are inclined to do; Charlie licks the kitchen floor when a small piece of food drops from the counter.  I don’t have to worry about him ingesting chemicals from floor cleaners that are not 100% all natural.

With that being said, I have begun a weekly puppy cleaning routine to optimize Charlie’s health. 
This routine would be a good addition to any home with pets:

Wipe down crate floor with Brightly Green Multi-Purpose Cleaner.

Clean dog or cat food/water bowls once a week with Brightly Green Dish Wash. 

Wash rubber chew toys with Brightly Green Dish Wash (once a week).

Wash dog or cat bedding/blankets with Brightly Green LaundryWash (also comes unscented).

Green clean homes + healthy pets = healthy, happy families!

I highly recommend families looking for a new pet to begin their search with shelter/rescue facilities.  There are so many precious animals that need a second chance with a good home.  I am very thankful for Charlie's foster mom, Denise, and Texas Pan Handle Pet Savers for all the work you do!

Thank you to all of you who foster animals and volunteer at shelters/rescue centers!

Thank you, Brightly Green Cleaners for making safe, non-toxic household cleaners that help protect our pets homes!!     --Charlie's forever Mom, Brenda
