    Move.

    Relocate to a clean house.

    Start over.

    Repeat as needed.

    it's getting close to pressure wash the outside of my house.

    Then windows, screens need to be cleaned however it's still pretty wet here so that all must wait for a few weeks.

    The inside beside doing what you mentioned I also get a bucket of water, simple green, and I wipe all the walls and doors down. Pull out the stove, washer/dryer and refrig to clean underneath. All that good stuff. I've done those so far and I shampoo'ed the carpets.

    I really want to start work on the outside!

    People with dirty minds often feel the need to clean things around them in a futile effort to repress the smut. :lol:

    Igo one step further and clean out all drawers, closets, and cupboards.

    Putting down shelf liner is just a waste of time, tho. :)

    LOL no it's from it being instilled in me as a child. If you were raised by a strict German Woman (100%) you would understand.
