The wood wet wipes is very wet. Can leave a soapy residue. So the helper says must mop after that.


I find the wet wipes very wasteful. After wiping, there is still some wetness on the wipe. Like the face mask :lol:


Reason for using wet wipes is to cut out mopping or ? :?

One of my friends does not wipe her wood flooring. Her maid just use magic clean wipes (dry). But this is ok for them as they don't have kids. In my case, I cannot don't mop the floor as my kids have a tendency to drop their biscuits, etc. on the floor. Even after dinner, you will see some rice droppings on the floor around the dining table, very obvious now that our flooring is white. :frustrated:

Last 3 nights (middle of the night), I even notice a lizard poo at almost the same spot on my floor :sick: . It was just below one of the aircon plemet in the dining room. :stompfeet: Hope it is not acidic. :pokeeye:


Ditto with Busymom with regard to kids messing up the floor.

And its also the lazy way out because when the helpers used the vacuum, there was a lot of banging around while they maneuvered the machine.

But, I always remind her to ensure windows are open and switch on the fan to air the room.

Saw a fresh milk advert in the newspapers this morning.

Not advisable to buy 2 litres milk carton.

Fresh milk, once opened, should be consumed within 3 days.

Dunno how true or just a mktg tactic to cast doubts on other brands that come with 2 litres.

I just bought another 2L bottle of milk.

The milk is usually consumed within the expiry date. If you just bring the bottle out to pour and back into the fridge it goes, should be ok I guess.

So far no problems.

BTW... I bought a steam mop! Having used it once, I wondered why on earth I haven't got it earlier. It made mopping the floor sooooooooo much easier! and nicer! I actually had fun :)

The salty roast pork belly is used, so I did not add light soya sauce or oyster sauce :xedfingers: only added a little dark soya sauce.

The mixture is in the rice cooker now. Very fragrant leh :lol:

Looks good. :drool:

Maid recreated pumpkin rice for the kids. Not sure how it tasted.

I usually add just enough water to cover the rice. Cannot follow the cooking plain rice method, that will be too much water.

:scratchhead: Chief is very much into housekeeping toys these days hor.

Thought most guys with mid-life crisis will go for fast cars and branded watches, etc.
