It’s spring! And that means one big thing everyone’s on the same page about – spring cleaning. Yes, it means cleaning out your closet and tossing things you no longer (or maybe never) use. But it also is a reminder to do some actual cleaning in your home! Below, I’ve included some great cleaning products for you to use for the kitchen, bathroom, and floors. Please excuse some of the horrible “before” pictures included – that’s what cleaning’s for!
CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner & Stain Magnet
My biggest cleaning challenge comes in the bathroom and kitchen, especially when I’m faced with standard upkeep and stains! Two of the products from CLR’s suite of cleaning supplies have become my “go to” for these things. The Bath & Kitchen Cleaner ($4) is great for cleaning countertops, sinks, and bathtubs/showers, to name a few. Their Stain Magnet product ($5.50) is also great if you or anyone in your home is prone to staining things such as crayons, red wine, lipstick, and nail polish.
Again, please excuse the gross look of the “before” pictures below, but see how fab the bathtub is looking after using these CLR products! Keep in mind that the cleanliness has held a lot longer than other products I’ve tried (which only seem to hold for a week or so) – it’s almost like a brand new place!
Windex Touch-Up Cleaner
I was introduced to the Windex Touch-Up Cleaner ($4) last summer and have been obsessed with it ever since. A lot of times, I need a solution to clean up a certain area on the counter or am in a rush to wipe down the whole kitchen. Rather than searching under the sink for cleaning products, these sit conveniently on my kitchen and bathroom counters, for quick access. Simply grab a paper towel, press down on the top of the bottle a couple times to pick up cleaner, and wipe down the counter. BOOM, done.
Although the blue seems to be marketed for bathrooms and the yellow for kitchens, there’s no rhyme or reason to it. You can use one color throughout your house or swap the kitchen yellow and bathroom blue. Regardless of what you do, these are essential for your home – I use them at least once a day!
Floors and counters are major cleaning areas, especially with dog hair flying around my home! Bambooee ($10+) fits perfectly in your standard Swiffer, acting as a replacement to the disposable sheets we often breeze through, and also absorbs spills on the counter, replacing paper towels! You know those paper towel commercials you see on TV all the time that claim “my paper towel is stronger than yours”? Well, in this case, it’s really true.
If you’re a fan of the ABC show, Shark Tank, you might’ve seen Bambooee pitched and picked up a few months ago. It’s so cool to see one of the products pitched in hand (literally)! I’m no hardcore environmentalist by any means, but I do try to do my due diligence with eco-friendly products, recycling, etc. when possible. I love that rather than using once and tossing or going through an entire roll of paper towels, you can reuse Bamboee over and over again. More specifically, you can toss the sheet in the washer after using, up to 100 times! This product’s a big game changer for me with spring cleaning this year!
