Household Spring Cleaning is Underway #PGMom #Giveaway

As the season changes from winter to spring, the transition usually results in additional dust, sand, grit and grime all over the house. Well, at least in my house it does!

Think about all of that ON TOP of your regular household tasks! Such fun right? It just means a really good spring cleaning is in order. 

Not only are we cleaning, but we are purging items as well. Sometimes as you remove those extra couches and tables to give away those little dust bunny families become exposed!

PGMom Badge

As a #PGMom, I am so fortunate to be able to have a good supply of a variety of products to assist me with cleaning my house.  The majority of the cleaning items and tools I have used for years happen to be P&G brand name items, long before I became a PGMom. Yay P&G!

Part of my cleaning repertoire now includes a Swiffer Wetjet! I’ve always owned Swiffer dry mops so I was very excited to use the WetJet for the first time. I had a ton of fun unboxing it along with all of the other great P&G  spring cleaning products. Check out my lil hyperlapse video!

I used the regular floor cleaner that came with the Wetjet but as you can see I have hardwood floors and I found that that after cleaning the floor I was expecting some shine. I think it makes sense for us to get the wood cleaning solution next time.

As shown in my many Instagram photos, my kitchen is in a constant state of “messy”. Nope, I’m not proud, but hey folks, I live in a house with 3 children haha!

Dawn and Cascade are my go-to products for the dishes, and Bounty is right there to dry it all up!

GIVEAWAY TIME!

Who needs a little help with their spring cleaning? You? Alrighty then, I have the perfect giveaway for ya!

    Unfortunately, I don’t have a ritual. It is more like frantic cleaning before company comes over.

    Come home after 4 months away, see mice, leave them where they are for 7 years. Throw some toxins down the toilet sweep up 4,562 flies and wipe a damp cloth across the counter. And, we’re good for another year.

    There isn’t much of one, but the dusting and cleaning does get done.

    I clean one room at a time! Usually on a nice, warm, sunny day, so the windows can be opened and the comforters, curtains, blinds and such can be put out on the clothesline to dry!

    I do windows first then the walls and baseboards.

    I start a room and don’t move on until it is completely cleaned from top to bottom.

    We don’t have a routine to it, but we empty out all the dressers/closets & donate what no longer fits. Wash drapes & blinds, vacuum the mattresses, discard clutter & papers. We basically clean all the stuff that is rarely dusted or washed.

    Every spring we turn off the furnace, change the filter and start by cleaning all the windows.

    i don’t have one – i should! I need to make a list, and do a little bit each day –

    I like to start by cleaning the smallest rooms first, one room at a time. I know people say to do the biggest room first but i like the smaller ones so I feel some accomplishment along the way encouraging me to tackle more. I also get all the windows opened up and cleaned and air out the house and do the blinds etc.

    We start with the big jobs…just in case we don’t get to the little jobs and often clean the windows first to let the sunshine in while the rest of the cleaning gets done.

    Buying a new mop every spring…it helps keep me cleaning!

    We start by going through closets and donating what we don’t need.

    I love Spring cleaning! I tackle one room at a time! Mattress get turned, curtains and walls get washed and a donation pile gets started. Sometimes it feels overwhelming but the end result is worth it! Amazing giveaway!

    I wait until it’s a lovely warm day and I open all the windows and get everyone scrubbing.

    I tackle one room at a time so the job doesn’t appear so daunting

    We don’t really have a ritual. We do try to do a more thorough clean in the spring like cleaning the windows.

    I don’t have a set routine, I just do small tasks day by day and hope it all gets done 🙂

    One day at a time. I only do small “bites” of chores, ie) only the bathroom, then only the hall closet etc. Because i get burned out and overwhelmed. But I like to chart it on a list, then I feel like I have achieved something big!

  29. lori3kids
    April 14, 2015 / 2:55 pm

    I can only handle one area at a time… like one bank of drawers is one day. The hall closet is one day. Washing down the bathroom one day… you get the idea!

  30. Theresa Black

    I start with all the vents and fans in the house and wash the walls and curtains as well all the light fixtures with the doors open getting some much needed fresh air flowing though out the house.

  31. April 14, 2015 / 10:20 am

    starting in one room, doing top to bottom including closets and circling the whole house that way

  32. Carol M

    Basically one room at a time.

  33. Judy Cowan
    April 14, 2015 / 8:54 am

    I do one room at a time, starting at the ceiling and working down. I usually start early so I can have it done before the nice weather arrives.

    Make a to do list, open windows to freshen up the house and tackle on item/room at a time. We are slowly getting there.

    Its chaos! Mass moving of furniture and appliances to clean underneath, dust in hard to reach spots, disinfect everything…ahhh!!

  36. April 13, 2015 / 11:17 pm

    On the first nice warm day, I open all the windows and take down all the curtains and wash them. That is the beginning of my spring cleaning week.

  37. Belinda McNabb
    April 13, 2015 / 10:29 pm

    My ritual is to just work on one room at a time and not to overdo it

  38. Doris H
    April 13, 2015 / 10:13 pm

    I tackle one room at a time and I start it when the weather’s warm enough to open the windows for fresh air.

    I just try to get through one room at a time, mostly because it feels like I never finish all the rooms before I have to restart the process… lol

    I’m choosing Sunshine’s method this year!! We usually tackle a couple of larger items each weekend day, so it takes us about 3 weeks to complete. Really need to get our windows done first.

  47. Elaine G
    April 13, 2015 / 12:01 pm

    I open up all the windows and let the fresh air in. Clean from the top of the house down. Bathroom,Bedrooms then Living Room,Kitchen and the other Bathroom.

    Slow and steady is usually the case with me when it comes to spring cleaning. I write down the jobs to be done and cross them off as I accomplish each task.

  49. Juliee Fitze
    April 13, 2015 / 10:44 am

    I do one room at a time and the windows on nice days.

    we always start with the windows

  52. Florence C
    April 13, 2015 / 8:17 am

    I wait for a nice day. Open the windows. Take a room and take all the bedding and curtains wash and hang outside. It is also a good time to turn the mattress and get it aired out also. Clean each room top to bottom.

  53. April 13, 2015 / 7:14 am

    It has begun…open all the windows and get some fresh air in…all the curtains and blinds come down, windows washed then dusting the corners and ceiling fans…uughh what a job!

    Spring cleaning involves opening windows and dusting, I just clean and tidy when we feel like it

  55. Brenda Penton
    April 13, 2015 / 4:42 am

    I wait until it is warm enough to open the windows. Then I make up a schedule and check list and tackle each room at a time and put everything I plan to toss or donate in the basement. I then tackle the basement last.

  56. Jonnie
    April 13, 2015 / 12:04 am

    I start on the top floor and do each room from top to bottom and then work my way down to the basement. Declutter, clean, then organize.

    Spring cleaning process: 1) discuss with husband whether house is clean enough. 2) Hire teenager from the neighbourhood to come in 3) Pay in cash, go out for the day and revel in clean house!
