We are leaving tomorrow for a much needed – and, might I say, much deserved! – vacation. Ever since my husband quit his corporate job 2 1/2 years ago to build his own businesses we’ve been working non-stop. We’re lucky if we have one day a week to spend as a family.
Whenever we leave town – be it for a weekend or a week – I like to make sure the house is clean so we can come home to a relaxing environment. In the days leading up to our departure, I normally stress myself out trying to tidy up. The to-do list never ends, especially with kids in tow. Inevitably, while I’m cleaning one room they’re destroying another room. Sigh.
So, this time around I was so delighted to have a professional house cleaner from Kelly Green Healthy Clean stop by to take care of the housework. The kids and I left for three hours, and when we returned home the place was fresh and spotless. I can’t express how much of a luxury this was for me. I feel so much more relaxed about leaving tomorrow than I would had I done all the work myself.
The Kelly Green housekeeper showed up on time with all the supplies. She used all-natural cleaners (like vinegar, castile soap and lemon juice) to get the job done. My home was cleaned exactly how I do it – no harsh chemicals with icky artificial fragrances. And, because she used a check-list I know the work was done just as promised. Every little corner was tidied – even the top of the refrigerator was wiped (and, I am embarrassed to imagine how much dust was probably pulled up – yikes!). Instead of a chocolate on the pillow, Kelly Green leaves behind a fresh lemon – how cute is that?!
But, the coolest part about Kelly Green Healthy Clean is that the business is run by an eco-minded woman just like me. She quit life in the corporate world to start a company centered around her values. I love supporting motivated female entrepreneurs because I believe that supporting each other is a great way to support ourselves.
