  1. Cleanliness is next to Godliness. I really love reading this post, I have to follow these steps to organize my home cleang activities most especially handling various furnace filter sizes. It's really necessary to maintain the fresh air within our home through using furnace filter.

  2. I'm curious about the switching towels nightly? As in ALL towels or just the super soaked hand towel.

  3. Jason and Michelle: she runs a daycare and changes the towel daily due to the amount of use.
