A positive attitude is everything, this we know. So, no longer will we look at cleaning tools as pure drudgery! FlyLady's tools are INSPIRATIONAL! Yes, you heard me: INSPIRATIONAL because they motivate us to get moving and do something to bless ourselves and our families.
We've put together this wonderful PACK OF INSPIRATION just for you! Each item in this discounted pack will help you to get motivated. We can ALL do something, anything, every day...just a little bit at a time as many times a day as we can. That's our BabySteps method, and it works! These tools will help you to BabyStep your way out of CHAOS and into FLYing!
The Ultimate Timer allows you to have the traditional "beeping" sound OR a "vibrating" alert to let you know when the time set has finished counting. The vibrate option allows for use in situations where the traditional beep option would be distracting to others. When set on "vibrate," it does make a slight buzzing noise in a low tone.
The Ultimate Timer will count up like a stopwatch OR it can be set for a certain amount of time (like 15 minutes) and will count down to zero. To choose your notification setting, there is a switch located on the back of the Ultimate Timer, just below the battery compartment. Slide the switch all the way to the left for the "beep" option, and all the way to the right for the "vibrate" option.
The Ultimate Timer has a special reminder message in purple from FlyLady printed on it: "You can do anything for 15 minutes." This handy, little timer fits right in the palm of your hand. It comes with a built-in clip,and magnet, and stand. Its simple, sturdy design is just what you need for those 15 minute blessings and missions. The Ultimate Timer can be set for up to 99 minutes and 59 seconds. One AAA battery is included.
Rubba Sweepa Broom Head: This tool is just the best at sweeping up pet hair, crumbs, dirt, dust bunnies and more. You can even use it on carpets! You can get all along the base boards of your floor where vacuums just have a hard time getting. This is not like your typical broom where you are moving things all over the place. For sweeping, you pull it toward you, you do not push it away from you. You also do not need to pull on it very hard, just as you have found with the Rubba Scrubba - you don't have to use a lot of elbow grease to get it to work. It works by pulling the rubber brush across what you are using it on. The FlyLady Handle will attach to the Rubba Sweepa Broom Head, and it can be shortened to allow your little ones to help, too!
Big Mop Head: It measures 5.75 inches x 15.75 inches and comes with one Big Mop Cloth (8.66 inches x 15.75 inches) attached to it, which can be removed. There are 2 spring loaded clamps on either side of the mop head (4 in total) that keep the Big Mop Cloth securely attached to the Big Mop Head. These clamps are easy to open and close, as well. The Big Mop Cloth that comes to you already attached to the Big Mop Head is nice and thick, which means you can wring it to the desired wetness and not have to run back and forth to keep rewetting it. This cloth (8.66 inches x 15.75 inches) fits securely on the Big Mop Head via 4 easy to open and close clamps. The cloths can be used, washed and used again. No repeated expense of purchasing disposable mop cloths, and no additional waste.
Laundering Instructions for Big Mop Cloth: Machine wash, warm or cold water - absolutely no fabric softener - or you can hand wash in warm or cold water. Hang or lay flat to air dry.
You attach the FlyLady Handle to the Big Mop Head using the compression collar, and you can use the Big Mop Cloth that came on the Big Mop Head to dry dust mop, damp mop, or wet mop. You can always order additional Big Mop Cloths separately (click here), as well, so you'll always have a clean one! When you're finished mopping, you take the Big Mop Cloth off of the Big Mop Head, and wash it in the washing machine, no fabric softeners, and then lay flat or line dry.
The Big Mop works great on sealed hardwood floors, linoleum, ceramic and marble tile, and is WONDERFUL on shower walls, bathtub surrounds, vinyl siding, etc. (we're still discovering places to use it, lol!).
FlyLady's Multi-Wand: With the tried-and-true excellence of microfiber material, this versatile tool can be used handheld OR attached to the FlyLady Handle (the extendable handle that fits the Mop Head, the Big Mop Head, the previously offered XL Mop Head, the Multi Wand and the Broom Head). The handheld portion measures approximately 23 inches in length (18 inches microfiber, 5 inches built in handle).
The Multi-Wand, when attached to the FlyLady Handle, measures approximately 6 feet in length. The microfiber cloth portion measures approximately 3 inches wide and is purple microfiber chenille. It can be used damp, dry, or wet. It is machine washable and reusable. It is bendable to fit any angle or tight spot! You are certain to find unlimited uses from blessing your home to washing your car.
The FlyCrew has, so far, used it for dusting door frames and can lights, fan blades and corners of ceilings. It works great for washing the tops of cars, vans, and trucks since you can put it on the Handle to extend its reach. We have used it dampened to clean the tops of refrigerators, and under refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers, etc. (unplug the appliance before using it to clean under the appliance).
This is one of the greatest universal, bendable, and extendable tools that we have found to date!
Laundering Instructions for the Multi Wand Cloth: Pull the cloth off the handle. Machine wash, warm or cold water - absolutely NO fabric softener (or you can hand wash). Machine dry, medium, or low heat - absolutely NO fabric softening dryer sheets (or you can hang to air dry).
The FlyLady Handle: The FlyLady Handle when fully extended is 52.5 inches long; when not fully extended, it is 31.5 inches long. Our newest design fits the Multi Wand, regular Mop Head, Big Mop Head, previously sold XL Mop Head and Rubba Sweepa Broom Head. The Handle attaches to the Mop Head(s) via a compression collar; you'll find the compression collar attached to the Mop Head(s) when it arrives to you. The threads at the bottom of the Handle are for attaching it to the Rubba Sweepa Broom Head and the Multi-Wand.
Rubba Swisha and Purple Rags in a Bag (also known as the Swish and Swipe Pack): As you know, FlyLady does a Swish and Swipe every day, and these tools MAKE IT FUN TO GET THE JOB DONE! We know you shouldn't get too excited over a toilet brush, but we just can't help ourselves when it comes to our Rubba Swisha. It has that hook that gets under the rim, and it's all rubber and plastic, so no metal scratches on the porcelain and no rust! And, well, you know how much we love our Rags in a Bag! You can use these for just about anything, especially those times when you would normally reach for a paper towel. The cloths are "two-sided:" one side is flat for sensitive surfaces and the other side has raised fibers for grabbing dirt, dust, and lint. They work great on the mirrors and sink, toilet tanks, seats, etc.
Laundering Instructions for the Purple Rags in a Bag - machine wash in bag with detergent only - absolutely no fabric softeners - let air dry and use again.
PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO THE DYE CONTENT OF THE RAGS, IT IS ADVISED THAT YOU WASH THE RAGS (ALONE IN WARM WATER WITH DETERGENT IN WASHING MACHINE OR A BUCKET) PRIOR TO USE.
Rubba Scrubba: This is the brush that you can use almost anywhere to do almost anything! We asked you to send in some of the many uses you discovered for the Rubba Scrubba. Click here to see all the great ideas.
Chenille Mop Cloth XL: The XL Chenille Mop Cloth is (approximately) 11.5 inches by 15.75 inches and offers a cleaning surface of approximately 6 inches by 15.5 inches (you have approximately 3 inches of cloth on each side that gives you plenty to place on the Velcro and then clamp down). It is reversible (one side has the chenille "fingers" and one side has soft microfibers). It works well to detail dust mop, detail wet mop, or to do a "quick" maintenance dust mop or damp mop. When you're finished, you take the XL Chenille Mop Cloth off of the XL Mop Head and wash it in the washing machine, and dry it in your dryer (no fabric softeners), or hang to dry.
Laundering Instructions: Machine wash, warm or cold water - absolutely NO fabric softener (or you can hand wash). Machine dry, medium or low heat - absolutely NO fabric softening dryer sheets (or you can hang to air dry).
