Swishing and Swiping Every Day – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In Your Home and Homeschool

Dear Friends,
The FlyLady Habit of the Month is Swish and Swipe. Last week, I talked about this in a video, and you would be surprised at the questions I was asked about Swish and Swipe.
First off, do you Swish and Swipe your bathroom daily?
If you do not, I want you to do it the next time you go to the bathroom. Go ahead and drink that water sitting next to you, I will wait.
OK, swish and swipe is so easy, even a child can do it. I keep a plastic vase of water with a squirt of shampoo in it next to each toilet in my house. The Rubba Swisha sits in it all the time. I change the water out once a month. Just flush, refill with water and shampoo, and drop the brush back in.
I keep FlyLady purple cloths folded and stacked on the back of my toilet. I use one a day to wipe my shower walls, tub, sinks, and counter. Then I swish the toilet, and wipe with rim with a piece of toilet paper.
I take the FlyLady purple cloth to the boys’ bathroom, and one of them does swish and swipe in their bathroom.
Last week, I talked to someone who found herself doing swish and swipe while traveling.
This is a habit that I do not think about it. I just do it every day after my shower. It takes less than 2 minutes including wiping the shower walls and tub.
One of my friends has incorporated swish and swipe into her evening routine after her bath. That makes the most sense for her.
Another friend has three bathrooms and drinks water all day, so she does swish and swipe in a different bathroom each time she goes.
Do you have any questions about Swish and Swipe? I am happy to answer them.

Have you seen my YouTube Channel? I am posting encouraging videos there.
