King of Maids Review and Giveaway

With a baby coming in 11 days, the last thing I want to think about is dusting the ceiling, ceiling fans, wiping down the cabinets in the kitchen, scrubbing the tub, etc. Of course I WANT my house clean, but bending, kneeling, squatting…. none of that sounds like something I could handle at this point! […]
