Okay, before you get mad at me, I don’t mean the kids in the sweat shops. That is a universal evil. I mean putting MY own kids to work!
What’s the best use for your Frugal Friday sponges? Have someone else use them! Ha!
Today’s nugget will have your shower sparkling clean, and your kids thinking you’re the best mom ever!
So here is your part of how this nugget works. Get your new yellow and green sponge, grab the dish soap from the kitchen and put them both in the shower. Now tell your kids to put on their bathing suits and get in the shower too. Now go sit on the couch and put your feet up. You’ve earned it with all that hard work.
Okay. Your kids are standing in the shower in their bathing suits. Enjoy the moment, ’cause they already think it is the best thing ever to be in their suits in the shower.
Hand them the sponge, tell them to put dish soap on the green side and start
washing the walls making bubbles!
I have discovered that using the green scrubby side of the sponge and plain old dish soap is a great way to get soap scum off the shower walls. And the kids have an absolute blast doing it in their bathing suits!
It makes lots of fun bubbles and the ordinary dish soap doesn’t have any harsh chemicals that could hurt your little people. They actually ask me if they can do it!
So your shower gets cleaned while you’re drinking coffee and binge watching Fixer Upper on Netflix. You could thank me now…
But wait! There’s more!
This nugget has stood the test of time. I started this when my people were tykes. Just yesterday, my daughter asked me if she could go clean the shower. SHE’S 11-YEARS-OLD!!!
Okay, now you can thank me. 😉 Go and enjoy your new “cool mom” status.

Could I get Gabe to do this? This is awesome.
I think both your boys should get in together and have a blast! I’d like to come over and see that one in action 😉
