The front door. I rarely come in mine. I use the back door almost all of the time. In fact, I don’t even have a key for my front door. But it is the first thing my friends and guests see when they come over. So it’s a place that I would like to be warm, welcoming and clean.
Not filled with cob webs and bug droppings like it was before I cleaned it up today. That’s disgusting.
My front porch still needs some design and style work but for now it’s clean which is better than unclean. Here is what I did:
1. I took a wet rag with some soap on it and wiped off the columns around my door along with the screen door casing and the ceiling (apparently bugs crawl around up there).
2. I took the magic eraser to the screen door because it had something undefinable on it that the soapy water wasn’t touching.
3. I swept the cobwebs from the ceiling and around the door. Then I swept the floor and corners really well.
The job took 20 minutes today. Now I need some friends to come over so I can experience relief instead of anxiety as I open the door, knowing they will not be standing on bird poop, at least for now.
Good luck, my friend!
Thanks for sharing your progress with me. One of my favorite comments so far was from a woman who’s father handed out soapy rags every Saturday to the kids so they could wash their fingerprints off the walls. Hmmmm, not a bad idea…
