As much of a pain moving can be, it has its upsides. Every time we move, we take that time to re-evaluate all our belongings and purge the junk we no longer use. We also love the fact that we can start on a clean slate! We’re not the best with keeping our home clean (I’m the messy one), so every time we move, we get that extra motivation to keep it as clean as possible when we first move in.
Now that our current home is an Airstream, what may have been small messes before are now a bigger deal to us. Because we’re stepping around in every square ft available, we notice every single mess. That’s why we’ve been working even harder to keep the place clean and tidy. Makes me wonder how much we overlooked while living in our 3 bedroom house!
Before living on the road, we used the Swiffer Sweep and Vac + the Swiffer WetJet. Now that we don’t have space for many cleaning supplies, we use only the Swiffer Sweep and Vac, which has 3 different uses. We use a dry Swiffer and vacuum to pick up all the big and small particles and then follow up with a wet Swiffer. We keep it simple, but it gets the job done (and I can be pretty OCD).
So gross how much dirt and dust collects in one day!
Our cats still think vacuums are the enemy. If only they learned how to clean their own messes. :P
They also sent us a Swiffer and Mr. Clean “Clean Slate” Kit to gift to our friends who just recently moved into their new apartment. We were happy to help them get a head start in making it a home!
