Whoo Hoo! Who else is gung-ho for Spring Cleaning? I don’t know about you, but I actually really look forward to this every year. There is just something about the fresh, Spring air, the flowers in the air and the scent of a clean home. Am I right?
I have found several things that help me with my cleaning process, whether it be spring cleaning or just everyday chores. I have also found quite a few products I always keep in my cleaning caddy that helps keep my house in tip-top shape, one of which is, of course, Spot Shot® instant carpet stain remover. I’m sure you have seen my posts in the past about how much Spot Shot has helped me stay on top of carpet stains in my house.
Spring Cleaning Tips
Spot Shot has been approved by the Carpet and Rug Institute for product performance with Anti-Resoiling agents protect the carpet. It is packed with odor eliminators that help to absorb and neutralize odors and is available in both aerosol can and trigger spray bottle forms.
If you want to be fully prepared for your Spring Cleaning project, or you just want to stay on top of your everyday cleaning, here are some spring cleaning tips that helped me and will help you too to get the job done.
Have the right supplies. When you have the right supplies, a cleaning job can be much easier and more successful. That’s why I always keep my Spot Shot on hand for those carpet messes. I also always have vinegar, microfiber clothes and several other favorite products and tools in my cleaning supply cabinet.
Spot Shot instantly eliminates the toughest carpet stains – even the old ones! I have used it on pet stains, grease, and spaghetti sauce, but know it can do more than that! Just spray on Spot Shot and blot the stain away. It’s that simple!
Keep the right tools and products together. It’s important to keep the tools you need on hand for each job. Whenever I am going to clean a spot on the carpet, for example, I make sure to have Spot Shot and two microfiber cloths on hand to do the job. It becomes a pain if you are continually having to go back and forth for the right supplies.
Start in the smaller areas. When you are taking on a big project like Spring cleaning, I have found it easier to start with the smaller rooms and move out from there. This includes bathrooms, closets, entryways, or even kids rooms. Starting small and working your way up makes a huge difference.
Work from top to bottom. I also work from top to bottom in every room when I am cleaning. Don’t go to the bathroom and clean the floors and then clean the countertops. That is counterproductive. Start with the top and work your way down so you catch all of the messes that may fall while you are working. I don’t like the idea of spills and stains getting added to my carpets and floors when I have already cleaned them.
Create a checklist. When starting your Spring cleaning process, it’s good to have a schedule and/or a checklist of chores that you need to do. It will keep you on track, make sure you don’t forget any spaces and help you with peace of mind.
