Cleaning & Organizing Cleaning & Organizing

Dirty, gritty floors... they drive me nuts. And you?

Seriously, I'm pretty crazy on a good day.  But there is one thing that puts me right over the edge.  Dirty, gritty floors.  I cannot walk on dirty floors, I cannot stand feeling grit (crumbs, sand, etc) under my feet.  In fact, I wear slippers or socks all of the time to avoid it!  However, if I am forced to walk on floors in my bare feet, I walk on my tiptoes partly due to foot problems but mostly due to the fact that it limits the area of my foot that is exposed to that dirt and grit!  

Last week my DH built our DS2 a sandbox and this obsession with my floors is now in overdrive!  It seems not matter what I do to keep the sand outside where it belongs, it manages to sneak inside and make itself comfortable on my floors (and my couches and even my bed).  UGGGHHHH!!!

How about you?  What, if it isn't cleaned, drives you absolutely nuts?

Note to self: no sandbox for the kids. 

SO's new boots leave black scuff marks on the kitchen floor. The mop alone won't cut it so it's sos pad and on my knees. If he didn't have a bad back and we had a bigger foyer I would make him take his boots off. With my luck though he'd just sit at the door and ask me to get whatever it is he needs from the kitchen. LOL

The children's room. Enough said. :)

 The floors bother me too, however vacuuming them normally does the trick.

I just hate clutter.

I hate it too. In the summer I like bare feet in the house, but everytime I step on a piece of grit or dirt I have to clean it off my foot.

I like my stovetop to be clean.

We had our driveway paved 3 years ago, and this made a big difference.  Before that we had gravel and I was always stepping on little bits.
