Spring cleaning is definitely not my favourite yearly event, but I must admit that I love the feeling of sitting down in a fresh, sweet-smelling house once the cleaning is done. And even the whole spring cleaning process isn’t as arduous as it once was, since I created an arsenal of P&G cleaning products! Everything from scrubbing floors to dusting fans is quicker and easier…and that means more time to enjoy the sunny weather!
This year, P&G sent me an assortment of some of its newest spring cleaning products so that I could get my house ready for a new season. I pulled out the Swiffer and Febreze products, rolled up my sleeves and got ready to tackle the jobs that mean “goodbye winter” to me!
One of the biggest and most time-consuming spring tasks here in Saskatchewan is packing away winter clothing. We have a huge bin of gloves, scarves, toques and more to keep the whole family toasty when snow is on the ground. But come sunny summer weather, the bin is a major space hog. Add in the snow pants and coats in the closet on top of that, and there’s a lot of gear to be cleaned and packed away!
My favourite trick for this job is to wash all the winter items with Downy Unstopables In-Wash Scent Booster before packing it away in a suitcase for next winter. The product leave the clothes with a fresh scent that lasts all summer long so that when I pull the clothes out six months later, they still smell clean and inviting.
With winter clothes packed away, it’s time to get rid of winter dust and let fresh air into the house! I love the Swiffer 360 Duster for getting all the hard-to-reach nooks and crannies. Often forgotten spots like baseboards and the top of window mouldings are easily reached and cleaned with the handle that extends up to three feet! And the device traps dust so that it isn’t just spread around, but is actually removed! That’s a great benefit to me as I suffer from spring allergies.
Finally, after vacuuming carpets and washing hard floors with my beloved Swiffer WetJet, it’s time to relax in a fresh and clean house! And to give my living room the perfect atmosphere, I use Febreze Unstopables Lush Air Freshener and light a Febreze Unstopables Lush candle. The lavender and vanilla scent is my absolute favourite and instantly makes a room feel clean and inviting.
No matter what spring cleaning chores are on your agenda, a few products from P&G can make the job easier. Use the Swiffer Sweeper Dry Cloths to sweep your floors, freshen fabrics with Febreze Unstopables Fabric Refresher and scrub those winter scuff marks away with Mr. Clean Magic Erasers! In no time at all, your house will be ready for the fun of summer.
