Hello friends and reinventors!
I have a question for you: Do you “spring clean”?
Who invented spring cleaning anyway? #ithinkitwasmygrandmother
I’m usually so busy cleaning up after kids, dogs, and my own DIY messes that thorough cleaning happens in mad spurts rather than planned seasonal sessions.
You know, house gets dirty, mom gets mad, mom uses angry energy to deep clean something.
Mom paints/rearranges/redecorates something and that process creates dirt so mom cleans it.
My most recent cleaning frenzy was a product of both of those phenomena.
Over the weekend, we finally finished the HUGE foyer/stairwell/many hallways painting project. Wow, that was a tough one. It took FOREVER.
There’s nothing more satisfying than a clean slate, though, am I right?
(a poor photo of a clean slate leaves a little to be desired. sorry for the poor light and Iphone quality)
I spent a LOT of time sitting on those stairs painting. And standing on those stairs painting. And cleaning the baseboards so that the dust and dog hair didn’t gum up my paint brush. And noticing how dirty the carpet was.
After the painting was done, I had a cleaning spurt. With my new friend, Bissell Deep Clean Formula with Febreeze (click on links for more information). And My Bissell upright carpet cleaner, pretty much my favorite cleaning purchase EVER.
I am seriously in LOVE with this Febreze Formula. The carpet is clean, and it smells clean.
The dog hair, the dog smell, months of tracked in winter dirt, and even a couple of tiny paint mishaps are gone. And with Scotchguard protection, the carpet will stay cleaner, leaving me more time for decorating! And more paint mishaps!
This cleaning spurt was so successful, I may do more spring cleaning with Bissell.
It’s a good thing they have this handy dandy checklist cuz I’m new at this.
And now I have bright and beautiful and BLANK walls to re-decorate!
Okay, okay, back to the cleaning for a minute. Would you like to win a Bissell Deep Clean Lift Off Carpet Cleaner and a bottle of Bissell Professional Deep Cleaning with Febreze formula and wash out winter and DIY messes at YOUR house?
