In a great attempt to keep a tidy and well run home, I find that I always tend to purge, organise and disinfect before the new coming seasons. I like knowing that school clothes are ready to go for the new school year and that when winter comes all the snow gear has been washed and hung and ready to go. But there is just something so refreshing about a good spring clean! I love the feeling of opening the windows and letting in the spring breeze when everything has been wiped down disinfected and put away.
This year for my spring clean, I happily teamed up with Clorox for their #cloroxmeansclean campaign. It seemed fitting to me, as we already used many of their products in our home. Below I have broken down some of our favourites.
GLAD Compostable Scented Bags. Before I discovered these, we were using hard paper (plastic lined) bags. We stopped composting for a while specifically because of them. They were hard to bend, didn’t hold a lot of waste and always became soggy at the bottom of the bin. Not to mention they were pricey. I then discovered GLAD’S 100% biodegradable / compostable plastic bags and they were a complete game changer. I LOVE these bags!! They are super thin but strong and allow us to fully utilise the space in the compost bin. They have a light Febreze scent and the odour shield really does allow you to use them for up to five days. Best part; when the bin is full, there is never any mushy mess at the bottom!!
Then there are the kitchen bags. Our garbage bins are awkward sizes. I always found a regular black garbage bag to be too large, but the regular kitchen white garbage bags were all too small. Then came the GLAD’S Tall kitchen bags. These bags not only fit perfectly, but are also extremely heavy duty. Similar concept to the compost bags; they are a thin sturdy plastic with a slight elastic stretch and the Febreze scent helps to eliminate any odours.
I am almost embarrassed to talk about the state of our sink on the best of days. We’ve started teaching the girls to bring their empty dinner plates and cups to the sink when they are done. They often forget to scrape and all the food particles tend to fall to the bottom of the drain. (Yuck) I like using a small amount of Clorox Clean-Up to really get the dirt out. I just spray let sit for a few minutes then wipe away! A minimal amount is all you really need to fully disinfect.
And so I saved the best for last. I seriously love Clorox Disinfecting Wipes I use these to wipe everything from our counters, clean around windows, wipe up floors and spills and they are even great for wiping down dirty sneakers. The wipes themselves don’t actually contain any bleach, which makes for a soft fresh sent when cleaning.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
