In a perfect world any mess or spill that occurs in our home magically cleans itself back up. Hey it doesn't hurt to dream right? The next best thing might be a family cleaning center. Instead of keeping cleaners under cabinets and towels in drawers, check out how this family has enabled their children to better clean up after themselves.
Nicole, aka The Sleepy Time Gal, set up a great station loaded with kid-friendly (eco-friendly/homemade) cleaners that are perfect for cleaning up quick spill and messes and she made a set of pretty cleaning rags and the kids are able to help themselves and take some responsibility for helping keep things tidy.
Check out The Sleepy Time Gal for a tutorial on making your own cleaning rags and setting up a station just like hers. Liberate your family from under the counter cleaners and see if you can make cleaning up after yourself a trend in your home.
