Is it sad that my favorite part of my home only gets used about 6 months out of the year? We have a double front porch and I love to sit on the upper level. It’s a great place to enjoy a glass of sweet tea, look out over the pond, and watch the cars go by. It’s also pretty messy this time of year. I went out there yesterday and the porch (and everything else on it) was covered with a green film of pollen. My relaxing haven became an allergy-ridden eyesore. I couldn’t sit out on my porch until I got that filth cleaned up. In today’s post I’m going to share a few tips for cleaning a dirty porch and my favorite recipe for Mint Sweet Tea with Lemon.
Do you want to see how messy my porch is? This time I can’t blame the dog. The nasty green film is pollen, and it’s everywhere. How could I relax and enjoy my tea in the middle of that mess? Even Bob refused to get out of the chair–he said it made his feet itch.
I did what every sane person would do, I got out my broom, mop, a bucket, and my Fabuloso®. I swept my porch and I proceeded to mop. I love how the Fabuloso® Multipurpose Cleaner Lavender smells and I love that I can also use it to wipe down my table and chairs. Most of my household suffers from some sort of allergy, so the pollen had to go. I have a table and chairs on the other side of the porch, and we enjoy eating dinner out there on a pretty afternoon. My porch gets a fresh smelling clean and I’m ready to entertain friends and family. Fabuloso® also had a limited edition Spring Bloom scent that I also picked up, and I enjoy its light floral scent.
A little elbow grease is definitely worth the view, don’t you think?
I’ve probably discussed my cleaning habits enough, so I want to share my favorite recipe for Mint Sweet Tea. This fabulous recipe is perfect for sipping, and it is my personal favorite.
- 4 black tea bags
- 7-8 fresh mint leaves
- 3 quarts water
- 1 lemon sliced
- ⅓ cup sugar
- Boil 3 quarts of water and mint leaves
- Dissolve sugar in boiling water
- Steep tea bags until desired strength
- Place lemon slices in pitcher prior to serving
- Serve over ice with additional lemon slices and mint leaves as desired
My favorite traditional Southern beverage was particularly tasty while I relaxed and enjoyed it after my cleaning was finished.
I love having fewer products cluttering my kitchen; that’s another reason I choose multipurpose cleaning products like Fabuloso®. Are you doing any spring cleaning? Make sure to check out Fabuloso® available at Walmart.
