OK...After "panic cleaning" for Easter Brunch this weekend, and experiencing some really inconvenient m/s, I love cleaning gadgets and shortcuts. What are your favorite gadgets and shortcuts that you do around the house to make things easier... let us all know what works and what doesn't

Here are two of my favorites...

I love WALL ERASERS! With all the fingerprints on my white walls, I am so glad they made these. If you haven't tried them, try them immediately!

Tide Sticks - OK what's not to love? They take out red wine (not a concern for me right now, but, assorted other stains are...) I just know as my bump grows, I'll start spilling, dripping, and dropping things on it. The Tide Stick is going to be my laundry friend.

I figure if I get ideas from everyone, once the little one gets here, I'll know what works and what doesn't. For example, has anyone used that window washing thing for cars and home? It looks too good to be true. With three boys, 2 cats, a dog and a baby on the way...I need shortcuts!

LOL!! I love my Tide stick too!!

As far as the wall erasers, I like them and they work really, really well, but they seem to leave a film on the wall--not real thrilled about that!

I love Magic Erasers...just have to be careful what you use them on because they will remove paint...

I think my fave is my Swiffer Wet-Jet...my house is all ceramic tile (except for bedrooms) so I can do spot mopping at night before bed and that makes the real mop on the weekends not half as bad as it could be...

okay, so this may not be quite what you mean, but a little while ago I went into the laundry section at walmart and bought one of those things you stick bras in for them to keep their shape....for baby socks. I was so sick of losing one and being left with several onesie socks.


Mine has 2 sides so I put Erin's in one side, Patrick's in the other.

Are you talking about Magic Erasers??? I love them. Even though my girls are 6 and 8...Who can resist writing on walls or anything else. Magic Erasers are AWESOME!!!
