spring

I must admit I am NOT a fan of spring cleaning.  I remember my mom  and grandmother doing extensive cleaning every spring, and even a young age I recognized how much work that had to be.  I have yet to live more than 6 years in the same house, but I can imagine after 15 or 20 years in a house spring cleaning inevitably becomes a necessity.  However, there are some products out there in today’s world that would have helped make my mom’s dreaded cleaning week much easier.

1) Swiffer Dusters

These dusters come in two lengths.  There is a shorter one made for your average dusting jobs, then there is a long one made for high and hard to reach places.  The material that the dusters are made of grabs the dust instead of just spreading it all over the place.  Use the long handled one to get in the corners and disperse spider webs, or dust off that ceiling fan that has been gathering dust all winter.

2) Norwex Polishing Cloths

These cloths may seem a bit spendy at first, but they really are amazing.  They clean glass with nothing but water!  Get a spray bottle of water and mist the surface you want to clean, or wet your polish cloth under the tap and prepare to be amazed!  I keep one of these in each bathroom for easy mirror cleaning.  When I get out of the shower, I wipe my dry cloth over the steamed mirror and it is shiny and flawless.  No streaks, no residue- just clean!  Time to clean windows?  All you need is a damp polishing cloth!  Forget about wrestling with a spray bottle and rolls of paper towels, only to see streaks on your second story windows after you’re already done!

This is a great product to eliminate paper waste and use of chemicals in your home without sacrificing quality.  The cloths are washable.

There may be other brands of polishing cloths out there, but I have Norwex brand ones and I love them.  Use other brands at your own risk!

3) Microfiber mops

There are hundreds of microfiber mops out there, and I’m sure some are much better than others.  The benefits of having one of these when spring cleaning is that you can use these to wipe down ceilings and walls.  I’m sure hand scrubbing your walls and ceiling would probably result in a greater depth of clean, but if you can live with a quick wipe down, why not save yourself the time and energy?

For a quick way to get the corners of your hardwood or laminate floors, let the microfiber pad overlap on one side, and use that to really get in the corners and edges of the floor.  After that, use the mop to go along your baseboards instead of getting down on your hands and knees.

4) Norwex Scrub Mitt

I know I already have listed Norwex product, but this one is also equally amazing.  When I clean my shower with this mitt (with nothing but the mitt and water) the plastic in my tub surround is literally squeaky clean.  I rub my finger over the plastic, and it squeaks.  This mitt has a microfiber side and a scrubby side.  It was designed for the bathroom, but really could clean anything. Cleaning out your fridge?  Just wet it and go!

5) Anti-allergen Spray for Mattresses and Furniture

I don’t have a lot of experience with sprays like this, but I am looking into including on in my spring cleaning regime.  Eliminating dust mites and other allergens in mattress and furniture sounds like a good idea, and would likely help the quality of air in your home.

6) Norwex Grill Cleaner

Believe it or not, this grill cleaner does wonders in an oven!  Use half the muscle, half the time, with no fumes!  I’m not affiliated with or selling Norwex products, but they really are a great product!  This grill cleaner makes cleaning a dirty oven easy.  One great thing about it is that there are no fumes to deal with, so you don’t have to be afraid of using it around the kids or even yourself!
