Clorox Spring Cleaning Giveaway

  • 140 comments

As of last Sunday, it’s officially spring. It’s also spring break here in Oregon. The wife and kids are gone for the week. While they are out of town, I’m using the time to get some spring cleaning done. The main tasks are cleaning the garage and the kids’ rooms. When the kids are around, it’s hard to clean their rooms because they won’t let you recycle or throw anything away. Do they really need every scrape of crumbled paper in their rooms? Or the plastic packaging material from their toys? Or a calendar from 2005? I don’t think so, but try telling my kids that.

Some parents do a big spring cleaning this time of the year. Other than cleaning the kids rooms and garage, we don’t spend a lot of time on spring cleaning. That’s because we try to keep the house clean throughout the year. With four kids, the house is never really completely clean but we do the best we can. We clean the kitchen daily, vacuum the carpet weekly, dusk from time to time, and clean the bathrooms monthly. I use to hate cleaning the toilets before the Clorox ToiletWand came along. Back then, I had to put on super thick gloves and used a sponge to scrub the toilet. With the Clorox ToiletWand (check out their how-to video), cleaning the toilet is a lot easier and I don’t even need to wear gloves. All I have to do is push the wand handle down onto a cleaning head and then use the Clorox wand to clean and disinfect the toilet bowl (kills 99.9% of germs). When I’m done, I just press a button on the wand to release the disposable cleaning head into the trash can.

  1. I really hate spring cleaning! My best cleaning tip is have a bottle of cleaner and paper towels in the bathroom so you can clean problems immediately, before they create the need for a major cleaning job.

  2. well, my biggest tip is don’t let the piles accumulate as the winter gores on- declutter as you go
    the big tip though is have a hand bucket with all the cleaners together easy to grab and since we change batteries in the spring- toss out your toliet wand and buy a new one

  3. My tip is to make Spring cleaning fun: blast the music and dance while cleaning, get the kids involved and make games out of chores. Then go out for some ice cream when the house is sparkly clean!

  4. Get the kids involved…have them gather all their unused toys & tell them they can have a yard sale & keep any money they earn. Then donate the unsold toys, clothes, etc to a local charity.

  5. Hang your curtains outside in the sun when you wash the windows – it’ll refresh them and any breeze will blow the dust right off them.

  6. Always do a little cleaning each day so it’s never overwhelming; and keep the house continuously clean, neat, and organized at all times so no Spring cleaning is ever needed.

  7. use the end of a broom and wrap a wet towel around it to reach the nasty high cob webs

  8. When cleaning out your closets and dresser drawers keep a box next to you so you can pack up unused items for a garage sale or charity.

  9. I am terrible at cleaning, I should be getting advice, not receiving it, lol! I take all of my old magazine to the library or doctor’s office when I’m done with them. I end up clearing a few drawers this way!

  10. When cleaning out the closets and dresser drawers keep a box handy to put the unused itmes in it for a garage sale or for charity.

  11. My tip is just do it per “leave a spring cleaning tip in the comments area.” I really need to motive myself to do spring cleaning. I like the Clorox wand.

  12. My tip is to go in sections. If you try to tackle too much at once you will burn out.

  13. My spring cleaning tip is that i decide how much I’m throwing away before hand. Like “I will give away 1 bag of clothes” or “I will get rid of 3 pairs of shoes”. I like setting goals and writing them down.

  14. Always focus on one room at a time, it is the easiest way to finish what you’re starting, also if you are questioning wether to throw out or donate some clothing ask yourself how long it’s been since you wore it, if you can’t remember donate it to a homeless shelter

  15. Following clorox on twitter- cinderella10383
    I am obsessed with clorox I use it every chance I can get hehehe

  16. My biggest tip is to do a little bit of cleaning each day. Saving it all to do on one day is a huge mess and chore!

  17. Email Subscriber:
    Used to do a BIG spring & fall cleaning before I became disabled but now it is very difficult for me to clean like before.

  18. Clean one small area at a time so it wont get too overwhelming and tiring. Listening to an audio book or your favorite music also helps you feel more excited with the cleaning task(s) :)

  19. Put breakables up when shampooing your rugs, you’d be surprised how easy it is to knock them around when shampooing

  20. My best spring cleaning tip is to make a list of what you need to do first and work from there. It helps me when I do the needs to first as if I am tired by the time I am done with those, if it takes me longer to do the rest then I feel as if I have accomplished something.

  21. My Tip: Start from the inside out and you’ll have nothing left unturned…not nagging feeling that you’re not done.

  22. If you do not need it toss it, don’t put in storage or a closet because you might by some chance need it later or you will never get the mess tackled. Also you can feel good about decluttering by donating. eaglesforjack@gmail.com

  23. My tip is to create a clean smell in the home, this will get you in the mood to clean and if not it will smell clean

  24. Thanks for the giveaway…if you run out of bathroom cleaner in the middle of cleaning, you can use shampoo in a pinch !

  25. Gather all the previous month’s magazines when the new issues arrive that way you don’t have a pile of magazines on your hands.

  26. My tip is to enlist the help of all the family members. It not only teaches them to pitch in as a family member, but makes the job less for everyone. And believe it or not, it can be fun sometimes! Thanks.

  27. Before you start cleaning take a good look around the room. You will probably see at least one spot that has an accumulation of papers or other things that don’t belong there. Clean that area thoroughly first. You’ll be surprised at how much better the room looks with just one spot totally clean!
