Do you know what Sunday is, besides my birthday? It’s the first day of Spring! The birds have been chirping and tonight I noticed that my daffodils have opened up. (They hadn’t this morning when I left the house!) I LOVE this time of year! One of my favorite parts is that it’s time to Spring Clean! It’s time to open the windows and get the fresh air in again after a long winter of having the house closed up. It’s time to freshen up the house with your favorite cleaning products. We use natural cleaning products in our house paired up with Viva®, Scott®, and Cottonelle®.
I got this real fun kit of products from Viva®, Scott®, and Cottonelle® to help kick off the Spring Cleaning in our house this year. The kids have been really excited about making up a cleaning kit and cleaning the house. See, they actually like to clean the windows and cabinets, but trying to get them to pick up their rooms is like pulling teeth! The past few weeks has been extremely busy around our house and all of my goodies have been sitting in the middle of my dining room table, taunting me to clean! Well, after Sunday we will be getting this house back in order. We will be heading over to Walmart to round out our cleaning kit and make a plan Monday on how to tackle the house over the week. Part of being homeschooled means the kids get home-economics and they have to help clean!
There’s a cute little list to make sure you have everything you need to clean your house this Spring. I suggest also picking up some baking soda and vinegar. You can get almost anything you need cleaned with Viva® Vantage® paper towels, baking soda, and vinegar! Viva® Vantage® is great for getting stainless steel appliances and glassware to shine and scrubbing stovetops, patio furniture and other grimy surfaces. When it’s time to clean out the microwave, I just place a bowl of vinegar in the microwave and turn it on for 5 minutes. Once it’s done I wipe it out with some paper towels. It’s super quick and easy. No scrubbing needed! On top of baking soda and vinegar, we use essential oils to help sanitize and make the house smell amazing.
There’s 10 Spring Cleaning tips to help you get started on what you should do in your house. We will be starting with the living and dining room with vacuuming curtains, cleaning windows, dusting furniture, and I’d like to do a thorough cleaning of the carpets. With that being the main part of the house, I’d like that to be done first. Then we will move on to the kitchen where we will clean out cabinets, wipe down cabinet doors, and finish cleaning out the pantry.I started the pantry at the beginning of Lent as part of my 40 bags in 40 days challenge. After that we will move on to the family room, bedrooms, and then hit the basement where I have to do the laundry room and school room while the kids do the play room. It’s a lot to get done, but with a plan I think we can get the house in really good shape over 1-2 weeks and be ready to just enjoy the Spring after that. I’m looking forward to kids playing outside and walks, hikes, and playtime at the park.
