Thanks to Lysol for sparking this conversation!
As we move into the Spring (and hopefully warmer!) months, I find myself getting the urge to spring clean just about everything in sight. Since I’m generally lazy when it comes to housework, I thought I’d share some of my favorite tips and tricks for staying motivated throughout the spring cleaning season (and generally all year long!)
1. Slow & Steady wins the race
Rather than tackling a massive project all at once and leaving my house in shambles while I put it back together, I make a list of things to do inside and try to tackle them one at a time. I’ve started with the closets in our house and have really tried to thin out the things we own versus what we keep and organizational tubs and containers are my best friend! As I slowly put these things back together, I feel more accomplished and it’s much more likely that things will stay put together.
2. Ask for help!
Whether your husband helps with organization or you get a friend to watch the kids for a while, ask someone to help out with your efforts. Every helping hand can definitely make the job easier and in many ways – so much more fun!
3. MUSIC or Netflix!
I always need entertainment to accompany my organization efforts, so I usually turn on some tunes (LOVE me some Glee!) or find something new on Netflix. As an added incentive, I try to tell myself that I’m ONLY allowed to watch if I’m actually working on something else while I catch up on my favorite new show. Spring cleaning anyone?
4. Use products that simplify
As each counter or space gets cleared, I love wiping them down using Lysol Power & Free TapTop Multi-Purpose Cleaner! It sits right on my counter and I simply use a paper towel or rag to wipe down the space when I’m ready for it! We wipe the counter countless times a day, however germs might still be there. New Lysol TapTop- a product that Powers Your Swipe with its hydrogen peroxide formula. Now your every touch up clean kills 99.9% of germs.
Additionally, the hydrogen peroxide formula cleans better than bleach without leaving harsh chemical residue – which is HUGE for this mom of two littles! It’s SO easy to use and I definitely feel like my space is CLEAN after I’ve gotten done using it. It’s the perfect addition to my Spring Cleaning routine!
