I love spring cleaning – there is something about opening the windows to let in the fresh air while you clean up your house and get rid of all of those winter germs. Today, I am sharing my favorite spring cleaning tips as part of a sponsored post as part of the Mom It Forward Influencer Network. I wanted to create a spring cleaning checklist for you and share a few of my favorite cleaning tips. I hope that you find it to be helpful!
The five main spring cleaning things that I work on are:
2- Cleaning the floors really well
3- Cleaning the cabinets (inside and out)
4- Cleaning the windows
5- Scrubbing the blinds/shutters
- My tip for cleaning the floor is to really scrub it with a good mop.
I see so many people making the mistake of going over the floor without using a good mop. A mop that works well, plus some elbow grease will do the trick to get all of those stubborn marks off of the ground. The O-Cedar’s EasyWringTM Spin Mop & Bucket System eliminates is a great choice for this. It provides a sort of effortless deep cleaning experience, so you feel like you are really cleaning but without so much work. (Plus, you don’t have to bend down to wring the water out… that saves my back!
You just put the mop into the hands-free wringer and press the foot pedal. It controls the amount of water you use so your floors dry faster. My kids LOVE to push the foot pedal for me!) It has a Splash Guard to keep the water spray inside the bucket when wringing, so the water won’t splash onto the floors or wall.
Here is what it looks like:
- I also clean the cabinets every spring. I take a magic eraser and scrub them… I then follow up with a good wood oil to put back in anything that I’ve removed. I would follow what works for your cabinets.
- For our windows, I take the screens out and wash them. I then was the window sills and each of the windows (inside and out). I find that a squeegee works very well for our windows. I use it every time that I clean them. I always clean the window sills because it makes such a big difference. I clean the corners with a cotton swab. I clean the shutters of every window after I am finished with the window and have replaced the screen.
- Spring is a great time for deep cleaning. The EasyWringTM Spin Mop & Bucket System is a great purchase to get you started this spring. It is $39.99 at retailers nationwide. Plus, it is good for the environment & has reusable and washable, deep-cleaning microfiber mop. The mop head is nice because it gets those hard-to-reach areas thanks to the head’s triangular design.You are welcome to download my spring cleaning checklist.
