It happens every March. That overwhelming urge to purge and clean out my house. This year was no different. Despite the below normal temperatures and the snow squalls popping up every few days, the sun seems to be shining brighter and has me in the mood for spring cleaning.
There is something about cleaning that I really enjoy; a sense of accomplishment when I am able to look at an organized linen closet and a sparkling sink or two. A few months ago, I started using the Clorox Green Works® All-Purpose Cleaner and I continue to be so impressed with how well it works.
For me, Spring cleaning means more than just cleaning. It also means paring down. Getting rid of what you no longer want, broken things that have been on the “to fix” list far too long, and donating duplicate items. After sorting through the clothing in our closets and organizing the linens, it was time to roll up my sleeves and start cleaning!
In the master bedroom, I used the Green Works® All-Purpose Cleaner to clean our headboard, nightstands, and dressers. In The Boy’s room, I tackled his dresser, art table, and toy storage unit. Once I knew the bedrooms were sparkling and smelling fresher, the bathroom was on my list. Despite cleaning it weekly, I feared I would have to use elbow grease to really get things looking like new again. A few sprays of the Green Works® and a quick wipe down with my microfiber cloth and the fixtures were sparkling again!
If you’re like me, your baseboards probably don’t get regular attention, especially in the bathroom. I wondered, could I use the cleaner and the microfiber cloth to get my baseboards ready for Spring? Well, the answer friends was YES! I sprayed my microfiber cloth with the Green Works® and gave the baseboards a quick wipe down to remove all of the winter dust.
With a clean bathroom upstairs, I was eager to head down to the kitchen and tackle the cleaning down there! I used the Green Works® to clean my glass stove top, hood vent, and microwave. It cut through the grease and left my kitchen with a pleasant smell. The glass stove top has been a challenge for me as many products streak or leave a residue, that is bad news for a type A gal like me! The Green Works® cuts through the spills and left the stove top sparkling.
It’s been my experience that the Green Works® products work just as well as their chemical counterparts; and I feel good about cleaning my home with them. Using natural cleaners is important to me and I appreciate that the Green Works® line sources ingredients from renewable resources, aren’t tested on animals, biodegradable cleaning ingredients, and leaves behind no residue. When you use a microfiber cloth, you’re doing even more for the environment because you’re not throwing paper towel into the trash.
