I'm finding that some days I can't stop cleaning and organizing once my fifteen minutes is up. If the baby is content with something else or sleeping on my back in the Mei Tai, I can and often do keep going. But, I usually move on to other areas of the house that need attention. I can only stay in the utility room for so long before I get depressed.
Today, while the baby happily ate a couple of frozen peach slices, I cleaned my blender. I use my blender a lot for smoothies so it was looking pretty rough.
I was elbow deep in this project before I thought about blogging, so I don't have a before picture. Just know that it was gross. Here is the after picture.
It took less than five minutes. I really wish I had the before picture.
On a similar note, I read about this neat blender trick a couple of years ago. I didn't have any canning jars to try at the time. The only jars I have now that fit the blender attachment are jam jars. Still, it worked great. I think it will be handy when I have to use the blender for garlic or other small things.
