Spring Cleaning Tips And Savings With Cartwheel
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Lysol®, Finish®, Woolite®, and AirWick®. The opinions and text are all mine.
Oh my, this year has seemingly flown by already. We were just packing up Christmas stuff and now, here it is, SPRING! With Spring seems to come more sniffles and sneezes from allergies. I see sick posts all over social media and alot of our family and friends have been sick lately -all the more reason to get in a good scrub down.
Being a stay at home mom to 5 means I do alot of cleaning, alot of wiping down the same surfaces over and over, and of course, alot of laundry. Spring cleaning and staying on top of things is made a little easier using Lysol, Woolite, and Finish cleaning products then ending with the scents from AirWick through out the house.
I am going to share a few tips on getting started, staying motivated, and a few good deals floating around on the Target Cartwheel app....because everyone needs another reason to shop Target.
So how do you get started and take advantage of these deals?
With the Target Cartwheel App. If you don't have it yet simply go find it in the Google Play Store or iTunes, install, and sign up/in. Then you can choose from all the great Target deals. Once you find what you are looking for you click it and add it to My List. You can print out your list or use the app in stores at checkout - just open the app and the barcode associated with the products you are buying. It really is very simple.
A good way for me to get motivated to clean is to wander the cleaning aisles, finding the most productive products that will allow me and my family to tackle the mess, this week and for weeks ahead. I was able to find everything I needed - from Finish for the dishes to Woolite for the laundry and Lysol wipes for everyday cleaning and up keep. And I love a good smelling product, AirWick offers a great selection for everyone. I grabbed a set of the new AirWick Fresh Waters Oil refills.

Now that we made it home and are stocked up on all the goodies it is time to get started. I want to share a few places that are normally neglected or forgotten about that could use a little cleaning. Like the mattresses and other large soft surfaces. Disinfect with the fine mist spray of Lysol Disinfectant Max to help kill germs. Be sure to sanitize couches, pet beds, and window treatments as well.
Air vents are also an easily overlooked area. Take a few minutes and dust around the outside of all the vents. Take a Lysol Disinfecting Wipe and wipe the vents down. Those of you with allergies will appreciate a good clean vent.
And finally, before I actually go finish up some of this weeks cleaning, a few tips.
-Take it room by room. Don't let yourself feel overwhelmed. Choose products that help you clean and revitalize your home, room by room.
-Decide how you want to tackle each thing. Some like to challenge themselves by doing 40 bags in 40 days, others make a checklist so everything is taken care of, and some just go kinda go with the flow of it starting in one room and making their way around.
-Clean and disinfect all in one with Lysol brand products. Save a little extra time by using multi purpose cleaners. Keep Lysol Wipes on hand and in each room to make things easier to clean on a day to day.
-Let the kids help out. Let them go through each room and collect their stuff. Let them help decide what to keep and what to get rid of. Maybe let them pick out something to add to their room once they are done -new posters, desk, shelves, new bedding, etc.
