All too often I find my home starts to feel dark and cluttered. It amazes me how quickly this can happen, but what I love is that there are simple ways to bring brightness and make everything look and feel a lot more clean. One simple trick is to go around your house and reline your shelves! I think shelf lining notoriously gets a bad rap for being hard to install, but that’s not the case anymore with Easy Liner® with Clorox®.
It is SO easy to fit onto shelves and even in drawers, and what’s amazing it how much life it breathes into your house! Maybe it sounds silly, but I find it to be so true. The little things like the dark wood in drawers that make them feel messy even when they are just slightly cluttered. It’s also a GREAT excuse to clear the clutter. Pull everything out of your junk drawer to line it with the bright, white Easy Liner®, then toss what you don’t need and only put the essentials back in the drawer! You’ll be getting rid of clutter and brightening up your home at the same time. Instead of seeing various colors or darkening wood on shelves you’ll see bright, easy to clean liner! I’ll admit that usually what happens when I try to declutter is that I end up overwhelming myself and getting nothing done. I’ll walk into my daughter’s room to try to tackle the toy problem and even an hour later it will look as if I’ve accomplished nothing because I’m trying to tackle too big a project at once. Doing things this way allows it to be done in smaller “bite size” pieces. I feel like I’m accomplishing something each day, even if it’s just a single drawer or shelf. Small steps are being made and as I go along, I only have one extra thing to maintain too. The junk drawer is clean, I need to keep it clean, instead of the entire kitchen or my daughter’s whole room full of toys! One drawer at a time, lined, clean and pretty! Soon the whole house will be clutter free because I’m taking realistic steps now! I love that it becomes so simple to wipe things down too. Our snack cabinet always seems to attract crumbs of whatever my kids have been grabbing from inside it, and it’s always been so hard to clean! With these liners, it makes the job quick and easy because they wipe so easily with a wet cloth or sponge. I find the same thing is true in the fridge. Cover the shelves with this paper! Not where your raw food goes, but everywhere else! I don’t know why fridges always have clear shelves, but it always makes things look so dirty and it’s harder to see what you have. Covered with paper, everything is cleaner and brighter!
My goal for the Summer is to get EVERYTHING looking shiny and pretty around our house. That’s starting with our drawers and shelves. You’ll be amazed at what a change it will make in the whole feel of your house. From the kids rooms to the bathrooms to everywhere in the kitchen, this lining makes it all better! You can roll on the clean all throughout your house. To use it, simply clear the space you are wanting to cover, wipe it down to get all the crumbs away, cut the Easy Liner® with Clorox® down to size and apply! It’s really the simple!
I want to get every room done before the kids are done with school for the Summer, that way we just have to maintain during the Summer and will hopefully have new habits formed by the time the school year rolls around this Fall.
