Spring Cleaning Tips

Springtime is finally here! One of my favorite things about spring is opening my windows, letting the light in, and sprucing everything up! You know what I’m talking about, Spring Cleaning time! I know I know, most people don’t like cleaning, but something about spring cleaning makes your house feel new and fresh, and really brings the sunshine in! I always do an annual deep house cleaning during this time of the year, so I wanted to share with you a few spring cleaning tips that I have picked up along the way!

Spring Cleaning Tips

Viva®, Scott® and Cottonelle® at Walmart

Get your cleaning supplies ready! Aside from cleaning appliances and cleaners before I begin my spring cleaning I make sure to head over to Walmart to restock on my cleaning and organization essentials. On the top of my list are Viva®, Scott® and Cottonelle® products. Having high-quality paper towels, toilet paper and bathroom tissue can make cleaning easier and less messy. That’s why I was so happy when I was informed that I will receive #SpringClean16 box from Viva®, Scott® and Cottonelle®. Of course, I said yes because these are must-haves on my shopping list, and you can never have enough of it.

Spring Cleaning Supplies

Make it a family affair! Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be (and shouldn’t be!) a one person job. Make sure you ask for help when you need it. In our house, we train our kids to clean. I give them spray bottles with water and some Viva® Vantage® and Viva® Towels towels that they can use to wipe table tops, counters, small decors and other stuff that they can easily reach. What I love most about Viva® towels is that they work like cloth and are durable to stand up to any cleaning job. Viva® Vantage® features a scrubby texture which is just like a terrycloth. My eldest used it to wipe the dust off our blinds and it’s so effective. While the Viva® Towels have a signature soft and smooth texture that are just like an undershirt cloth, so you can let kids use it to wipe without being afraid that they will scratch some furniture.

I never run out of Viva® Vantage® because there’s just so many uses for it. I love using it to polish my stainless steel refrigerator, shine glassware and even to scrub off grime on stovetops.

Another thing that you can let kids help you with is to ask them to organize stuff. I already started spring cleaning our bathrooms this week and I asked my kids to help me. I assigned them to restock our bathroom tissue, and they were so happy and proud to help. My girl arranged the Cottonelle® Clean Care and my youngest the Scott® 1000 bathroom tissue.

Our family trusts Cottonelle® to make our bums clean because it has CleanRipple Texture, which is designed to clean better than the leading national value brand. If you want quality, performance and long-lasting value in 1,000 sheets then Scott® 1000 bathroom tissue is for you.

Break it up! Trying to spring clean your entire house in 1 day will stress you out, and details will get missed. Make sure you give yourself enough time to get it all done without pulling your hair out!

Make a schedule! We do this every year. I personally spread my spring cleaning throughout a week and focus on 1 area per day. Making a schedule allows you to keep track of what has been done, and what needs to be!

Go Natural! Using natural and homemade cleaners will save you some money and help the environment! This is very important especially if your kids are helping you clean, you don’t want to expose them to chemicals from harmful cleaning products. Just give them a simple water bottle spray plus Viva® Towels.

Relax! Don’t freak out if things don’t get done as fast as you want them too, it’s just a little dust, it’s going to be ok!

Stock-up on Viva®, Scott® and Cottonelle® products, check out Kimberly-Clark Family Care Walmart site to shop.

    I love Viva paper towels! I also think that it’s awesome that you get your kids involved with spring cleaning, it’s important!

  2. lisa says

    Spring cleaning is a chore. I usually take my blinds down and was then hose them off outdoors. Pr, in the shower depending on the weather.

  3. Jennifer Heintz says

    Thank You for providing the check list. That should be helpful, especially if I find a helper or two. I agree that it should be tackled on room at a time.

  4. Angie says

    Thank you for the printables! They will come in handy while coming up with chores for the kiddos during spring break ????

  5. Ruth O says

    I love the tips! My girls love to help but NEVER when I ask. It’s way more fun to put out sparkling new cleaning supplies, then all of a sudden the interest is high.
    (For at LEAST 5 minutes, anyway!)

  6. Vickie says

    I actually love spring cleaning!
    But, I started about a month ago.
    Our spring was like a day or two this year.
    Very short lived. Today it was 91…summer is here. ????????

  7. says

    That’s right make everyone be involved and it will go much faster and easier. I’m a big fan of these Paper towles they are very absorbent.

  8. Beth Minyard says

    Really great tips! I always dread AND look forward to Spring cleaning, it’s a double edged sword! Thanks for the post

  9. Jennifer Heintz says

    The list will be be used! I want to get my helpers motivated, and this would be helpful. One room at a time!

  10. erin dear says

    Thanks for the checklist! I am planning on starting spring cleaning next weekend when the kids go on spring break and te lists will be very helpful.

  11. Tamra Gibson says

    Wow YOU got it together. I do wish I would have given my kids chores like this. I wanted to b a super a Mom and do it all by myself. Lol

  12. Jennifer Heintz says

    A checklist to get us going might be just what we need. Organizing and having the right supplies is also important. Be prepared for the clutter to go to the curb.

  13. lisa says

    One room at a time is a must. It’s overwhelming to do it all at once. Plus, you get each room cleaner that way.

  14. Beth Minyard says

    Definitely a great idea to get the kids helping! WAY too much work for one person to take on on their own

  15. Vickie says

    I am with you, there is nothing better than throwing open the windows and turning off heater! Let the sun shine in,

  16. lisa says

    You have some good cleaning tips. On the bathing suit post, there’s no place to comment, so I’ll do it here in order to claim the entry. There is nothing worse than seeing anybody in an ill fitting bathing suit. Nobody wants to see it!

  17. Diana C says

    I’ve tried the Viva Vantage towels before, they are great. I totally like the tips you have, esepcially for the kids. They look “excited” to help, lol, but its important for them to learn.

  18. lisa says

    I find that it’s easiest to just stay on top of things daily. That doesn’t happen here, but it would be easier.

  19. lisa says

    I like the idea of making home made cleansers. I am very sensitive to chemicals and try to use natural products whenever possible.

  20. Adrien Beatty says

    Getting the kids involved is a great idea! I know while I am always trying to clean my kiddos are making messes. Maybe busy hands will help clean up. Thanks for the tips.

  21. lisa says

    That’s what I say, relax. The house didn’t become a mess overnight. You can’t clean it all in one day.

  22. Peggy Johnson says

    I really like having a spring cleaning checklist…It feels good to check off as things are done and feels great when a page is all checked off

  23. Lisa Brown says

    The check list is a good idea: keeps one one schedule to get the cleaning done and a good reminder of what needs to be done.

  24. Lauryn R says

    I am definitely a huge fan of Spring Cleaning!! I love the way my home feels after. I also get my kids involved, even though they are still very young.

  25. Rebecca b says

    The printables are great. Trying to just dive in without any direction is so overwhelming, so it just sometimes doesn’t get done. So much easier to just take the kids to the park!

  26. Jammie says

    We got a brand new home about 6 months ago, it’s time for a deep cleaning to make sure the dust and webs are gone.

  27. Margot C says

    Great tips. I made a spray this week with essential oils of lemon, grapefruit and tea tree and did both bathrooms with it. Marvelous!

  28. Carrie says

    Maybe these tips and ideas will help motivate me to get started on my spring cleaning before it becomes summer cleaaning! Thanks!

  29. Terri S. says

    Thanks for the great tips! I spread my spring cleaning over several weeks. The spring weather is finally here so now I can clean all my windows on the outside. I already did the insides of them. I get my cleaning supplies at Wakmart.
