I had a great opportunity to attend the #LysolMaxiMom event at La Creperie last Thursday. I learned a lot of practical tips and tricks from the celebrity moms behind Whole Mom: Rica Peralejo, Chesca Kramer and Marilen Montenegro.
I also learned more about the new Lysol Maxcover mist spray, which is designed to cover and disinfect larger areas keeping them healthy and fresh. With 2x wider coverage and unbeatable protection, it can reach crooks and crannies with no over-wetting.
It comes in 2 new variants; Garden After Rain and Lavender Field. Oh, and I really love the scents especially the Garden After Rain. A 15 oz. can costs Php411.00 and it's available in all leading supermarkets, club stores, groceries and drug chains.
Below, some of the most helpful, interesting things I've learned from these beautiful moms;
Marilen shared the importance of a clean and organized home. It is important because it creates a better work flow at home. That being said, she shared some easy steps to an organized living room.
HOW TO USE TRAYS TO ORGANIZE YOUR LIVING ROOM
• Organize little objects live TV remote controls, small décor and other living room essentials
• Tell a visual story.
• Invest in decorative baskets for your living room to hide messy things like toys
• Organize with baskets and keep essentials like living room blankets.
CLEAN AND ORGANIZE IMMEDIATELY
• Clean as you go.
• Put things away as soon as you are done using them,
• Teach family members to be tidy.
The beautiful mom of three, Chesca Kramer, shared some tips on how to acquire the habit of cleanliness. She said that when you see a clean organized home almost always you can picture the type of individuals who lives in that home. You can imagine that their thoughts too are well put together. Nothing is more enjoyable than coming home to a clean organized home that exudes peace and tranquility. Happiness is Cleanliness -- a happy home is a clean home.
“Cleanliness and order are not matters of instinct; they are matters of education, and like most great
things, you must cultivate a taste for them.” – Benjamin Disraeli
CLEANLINESS is an acquired habit. How does one acquire the habit of cleanliness? Habit in simple definition is something that a person does in a regular repeated way. When you do this activity or action regularly, one develops or acquires what we call a habit.
Form Habits by the 3–Step Process:
Step 1: Set a Reminder
Ex. Place reminders behind sink/lavatory cabinet doors in every toilets & bathrooms of the house with cleaning instructions.
Step 2: Start with something easy to start
Ex. For an easy start, provide cleaning materials needed for cleaning and disinfecting the T/B under the sink & lavatory cabinets
Step 3: Reward yourself or family member/s
Ex. Commend family members for keeping up with the good habit
BEGIN BY ORGANIZING YOUR CLEANING MATERIALS
• Organize your cleaning materials in a pail
• Place each pail in their designated T/B, maybe under the sink
• Post a reminder on an inconspicuous spot in the T/B to clean the room everyday
ORGANIZE THE CONTENT OF YOUR PAIL
• Medium-sized pail or bucket to contain disinfectants
• Disinfectant spray for the lavatory and mirror
• Toilet Bowl Cleaner
• Rag, Utility Sponge, Tile Brush
KEEP A TASK CHART TO KEEP AN EYE ON DAILY ACCOMPLISHMENTS
• Check DAILY if the task is accomplished diligently.
SANITIZING THE KITCHEN EVERY AFTER DAILY USE
• It is good practice that we keep a mop in a pail of water filled with disinfectant in a safe corner of the kitchen.
KEEPING THE LIVING ROOM CLEAN
• Mopping the whole house 3 x a day should be a habit that every household should acquire because nothing can compensate with a compromised health.
The last part of the workshop was a heart-to-heart talk from Rica Peralejo. Her one piece of life advice to Lysol moms is this:
“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.”
WHAT WE PUT IN OUR HEARTS
“The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his
evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45, ESV
WHAT WE RELEASE FROM OUR HEARTS
The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped. (Proverbs
11:25, The Message Bible)
"When you open doors for others, God will open doors for you." (Lisa Bevere)
Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that
you can live together whole and healed. (James 5:15, The Message Bible)
“You will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let
them go, let go of them. I tie no weights to my ankles.” (C.Joybell.C)
“Never forget the nine most important words of any family: I love you; You are beautiful; Please
forgive me.” (H.Jackson Brown Jr.)
WHAT WE KEEP IN OUR HEARTS
Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense. (Proverbs 19:11,
“Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win.” (Jonathan Kozol)
“But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart.” (Luke 2:19)
I also had a great time sharing and learning from other moms from different walks of life. I learned a lot from them and I will definitely remember everything by heart. Now, I can embrace motherhood with the beauty, style and grace of a #LysolMaxiMom. Thank you Lysol for having me and sharing a day of bliss by making a keepsake that I will be able to take with me as my journey into motherhood continues.
