To Clean or Not to Clean

My first real 8 hour shift at work went by, I swear, in about 3 hours. One minute I was steaming more shirts (as we have only been open a week and half) and then the next I was taking a lunch and working in the stock room (getting it organized) with my AWESOMELY COOL manager. I really think we were having more laughs than working, but that is what is so awesome about my job!

But with 2 days off today and tomorrow I am back to the "mommy/housewife" grind of cleaning the house since I never seem to have time to do it anymore. Today, I started with trying to get the dishes in the dishwasher cleaned before they got too crammed into the machine. Well, lately, we have had to rewash dishes because there is still food left on them mainly because "we" don't know how to either wash before we put the dishes in the dishwasher or there is just so many dishes in there, they aren't getting cleaned. For a while, it was all the hard water build up until a friend introduced me to Lemi-Shine.
You can buy it at any grocery store right above the liquid dishwashing soap. This stuff is formulated for dishwashers using hard water. It cleans the dishwasher along with your dishes. All you do is add it to the main soap chamber, then add your favorite dishwashing soap to the prewash chamber, and out comes perfectly clean dishes and most importantly, glasses you can see through!
After the load was done, there was still some dishes with food particles on them so I just washed them by hand and now the dishwasher is going through a cleaning phase where it has to sit with cleaner for 4 hours. Talk about being in "time out" *chuckles*

I have already cleaned the office as well as the upstairs loft. My goal for the rest of the day is to get the dishwasher finished, the kitchen cleaned and dishes RE-loaded in dishwasher for next go 'round and then get my master bathroom cleaned! Then tomorrow I will start on other "cleaning" projects around the house.
