Ahh, Spring is finally here. The warmer weather causes us to jump up and run outdoors especially for our children. They can’t wait to get out there to ride their bikes and play, don’t you agree? I can’t blame them. Spring is the perfect time to release all of that energy from staying indoors during winter.
I will admit, I love the fact my kids become more active during the Spring but as parents, we all know what comes trailing in once they walk back in the house. Yup, you guessed it. Dirt. I often wonder if they’re actually playing outside or rolling around in it. -And of course, they have to touch everything in sight. Leaving fingerprints and trail marks all around your home. Sounds familiar?
Of course as moms, we all can relate. Been there, done that, for the most part in all of us.
When it comes to Spring cleaning, not only do I tackle each room but the walls, floors, and bathrooms are first on my list.
Let’s face it, cleaning is a chore that most of us procrastinate on although with the right cleaning supplies and products like Windex®, We can and will conquer it all!
Here are my favorite fives on ways to Tackle Spring cleaning.
- Save time and money when shopping for cleaning supplies at Walmart.
Finding cleaning products like Windex® in the home cleaning aisle allows me to make my selections so much easier. I can locate my favorite 26oz spray bottle size of Windex® and be on my way.
Unlike other glass cleaner brands, Windex® provides a streak-free result and is a trusted cleaner that’s perfect for any surface. Many consumers might believe that Windex® can only clean glass. Well, that’s absolutely not true. I use Windex® on my home windows, my shower glass door, chrome bath fixtures, tile, plastic and even some electronics. Honestly, the list is pretty long but I will say, having a few bottles on hand helps to clean my five bedrooms, four bath home a breeze.
- Clean your home when there is less traffic.
You guys, it’s a must for me to tackle Spring cleaning without the kids and hubby around. I’ll say, it makes cleaning more peaceful. But not to mention, re-cleaning areas or going around them as they sit and watch is never helpful. Oh yes!!! Hello? I feel like saying, Don’t you guys see me cleaning over here? Haha. I laugh now but it’s a true story.
But if they must be home, I always ask them to gather in one room to make it easier. There are always those days when you have your dog following you around and watching every move you make. Just like my dog, Chloe.
She wants to be where I am at all times (Just like a kid). Which also means even scratching and licking the sliding glass door. As you can see, pets can be just as messy as a child. So keeping up with the paws markings is best when they’re resting.
- Tackle your Bathroom.
My household is full of boys and only one girl so I bet you’re thinking oh yes, boys can be very messy. It’s quite the opposite in my home. Even though my daughter is only 7, she has her own bathroom and boy, it’s always full of clutter. Now, don’t get me wrong, the boys have their own bathrooms too, so there are some equal amounts of dust or dirt around the sinks and the shower glass door, but needless to say it’s a room that must be tackled.
Using Windex® in our bathrooms to clean these areas, gives it the cleanliness that I hoped for.
Check out the before and after pictures below. Can you see why Windex® is a must to use?
- Springtime Wipe Down.
I ask this to myself all the time, how do our walls get so dirty? Oh, I bet you already know the answer to that one. Our children.
Sticky fingerprints, crayon drawings, dried up drink squirts you name it, I’ve found it on my walls and vinyl doors. You know what’s amazing? I spray Windex® on a cloth or paper towel then wipe off all the messes. -And, you know what’s even better? My walls look spectacular in the end.
Wiping down surfaces such as sealed granite and marble would be ideal when using Windex®. Also, mirrors, vinyl, and aluminum.
- Celebrate Spring.
It’s time to celebrate! Let us enjoy our clean home for the Spring because those rainy Summer and Fall days will soon be upon us then we’ll be back at it again.
So tell me, How do you tackle your Spring cleaning?
