Let The Spring Cleaning Begin

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Lysol®, Finish®, Woolite®, and Air Wick®. The opinions and text are all mine.

Ahhhh.... spring cleaning... I have to say that I enjoy it every year. We heat our house with a coal/wood stove, and the dust, dirt and grim are unspeakable. Of course, I clean all year long, but to me spring cleaning breathes new life into my house.

I usually start my spring cleaning by dusting everything. I admit, dusting is my least favorite cleaning chore. I don't know why I loathe it so much, but for some reason I do. Once dusting is completed, I move on to the other chores such as vacuuming and mopping as I normally do during a traditional clean. But with spring cleaning, I like to clean a little deeper.

To help me in this cleaning process I use Lysol, Air Wick, Woolite and Finish products. Lysol is my go-to product for all of my disinfecting needs. Seriously, I may run out of paper towels from time to time, but my household never runs out of Lysol! And when I come across great deals, such as this Cartwheel coupon, I can't pass it up.
FYI - in addition to Lysol, there are also great Cartwheel offers for Finish, Airwick and Woolite. 

Once I've completed my traditional cleaning, then the spring cleaning can begin. I usually like to tackle my spring cleaning room-by-room. I basically start with one area, and once it's clean, I move on to the next room. 

We have three dogs, and two of those dogs get on our furniture. I sanitize our soft surfaces with Lysol Disinfectant Spray. I like the crisp linen scent. Did you know that Lysol (when used as directed) can kill up to 99.9% of viruses and bacteria? Speaking of bacteria, I keep a canister of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes near the toilet.

I have a husband, and a six-year-old son. Let's just say, those wipes are super handy to clean up misses and messes if you know what I mean! I also use the disinfecting wipes to wipe down counters and door knobs along with any other frequently touched surfaces. The Lysol Disinfecting wipes also work great to clean my bathroom faucets. 

For spring cleaning (in addition to regular cleaning) in my kitchen, Lysol Lemon Breeze All Purpose Cleaner Spray is my go-to. I find that it is great at cleaning counter-tops, cabinets and appliances. Oh, and don't forget the garbage can! I usually start by putting all of the dishes into the dishwasher. I also use Jet DryFinish Rinse Aid to help keep my glasses spotless.

Once the dishwasher is loaded, I begin wiping down my appliances, counter-tops and cabinets. I usually take the lid off of my garbage can, spray it with the Lysol Lemon Breeze All Purpose Cleaner and let it sit in the kitchen sink while I clean up the rest of the kitchen. Then I wipe it down and return it back to the garbage can. Sometimes I will also spray the garbage can with Lysol Disinfectant Spray!

When I say that I trust Lysol for my cleaning needs, I mean it! I literally go room-by-room wiping down and cleaning all of the surfaces. It's such a great feeling to get rid of the dirt, grime and germs. I enjoy spring cleaning, and honestly, Lysol makes it easy. However, if spring cleaning seems overwhelming to you, I suggest you start with supplies. Once you have what you need, take cleaning one step at a time. Find what works best for you! 

On a side note, if some of your clothes seem dusty after being stored all winter, check out Woolite High Efficiency Extra Dark Dual Formula. It cleans yet helps keep your dark colors vibrant. 

You can find all of these great products at Target, and don't forget to use your Cartwheel coupon!

Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream. If you like this blog or this post, please take a moment to share it with friends.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
