Okay, just a couple more things. If you're anything like me when you clean, I like to protect myself from the chemical; from breathing that in. I like to wear a mask that just covers your nose to your chin. It's just a little paper mask that you can get anywhere. They're disposable. You can buy them at Home Depot or WalMart. Few dollars for a pack of ten or so. Some painters use them when they are painting. It's that type of thing. They're paper. They're very light weight. They just help you from breathing in all those chemicals. And especially, I'm pregnant, these are things we as women have to consider when we're pregnant. But we want to make sure that we protection ourselves from any, it's not necessary to breath that in. Also, knee pads are a great option. If you're going to be on your floor kneeling to clean out your tub, you want to make sure that you're not causing any kind of damage to your knees or your back. It does help. It does help a little bit to have knee pads or either a pad that you can get from Targets or WalMarts again for just a couple of dollars. I do have a friend that's had quite bad, caused bad injuries to her knees because she's been housekeeping and cleaning for years and years and years. You and I, we clean up every week so we want to make sure we take care of our knees.
