Hi Friends! It’s another week, and another Wednesday, so you know what that means! Although, today, I decided to give this #WhatUpWednesday a Spring Cleaning twist!
Basically, I’m sharing all my favorite cleaning products with you 🙂 So let’s get to it!
What I’m Cleaning My Surfaces With
I like to clean with Mrs. Meyer’s brand products! I love them because they are gentle cleaners that don’t have harsh chemicals, so I feel good about wiping my entire house down with them! (And I literally mean my entire house. More on that later!) The only thing I don’t love about these products is their scents. (I think I’m the only person who doesn’t love how most of the products smell!) I typically like my cleaning products to smell citrusy, which none of these do! However, I really love the Honeysuckle scent!
What I’m Disinfecting With
Because cleaning and disinfecting are not the same thing, I’ve using multiple products on my main surfaces to get them extra clean! We used to use Clorox Scentiva Multi Surface Spray and we loved it. It smells good (like a trip to the Caribbean!) and I loved knowing it’s killing all the virus germs that I may have brought home with me from work. But, we haven’t been able to find it again since last March! A year later and our stores are at least not completely sold out of disinfecting prodcuts, but they have all been the basic scents. So normal Clorox and Lysol cleaning sprays have been what we’ve been using lately! We also used to wipe down our surfaces with Clorox wipes. But we had such a hard time getting them last year that we used them very very sparingly. We are still in the habit of buying a small container of them every time we see them and then only using them to disinfect main touch points with so we don’t run out. HA I miss the days where I wiped everything with a Clorox wipe. I love how the lemon ones smell 🙂
What I’m Cleaning My Floors With
We are SOOOO in love with our Dyson! We got it for Christmas a few years ago and it is honestly a game changer. We clean our entire main floor in minutes thanks to how light and easy to use our stick vacuum is. I know that any Dyson product is an investment, but I have to say, this vacuum is worth every single cent. We like to vacuum our floor a few times a week, and then on the weekends we run a Swifter Wet Jet over it too! I also shared what we use to deep clean our carpets with in yesterday’s post.

What I’m Cleaning My Appliances With
I discovered LemiShine on accident last year and love their products for my Dishwasher and my Garbage Disposal! They really get rid of the nasty smells and leave everything really clean. Plus they are easy to use and do all the hard work for you! For my washer I really love the Oxyclean Washing Machine Cleaner. I was too afraid to try the Lemishine brand because I have sensitive skin when it comes to my laundry products. Oxyclean has been a tried and true stain remover for me, so I stuck to a brand I knew to clean my washer. It worked great!
What I’m Dusting With
I have two products that I switch back and forth between when I dust! I really love my E-Cloth High Performance Dusting Glove! It’s super simple to use because I just slide in on and wipe away. It’s perfect for light dusting days. But when I have something that’s really, really, really dusty, I reach for my Clorox Dust Wipes. These are weird because they are sticky, but literally all the dust sticks right to them so they defiantly do their job!
What I’m Spraying on my Furniture
I love love love love LOVE Febreze Unstopables! I’ve been using the Shimmer scent (the pink one) ever since it first came out, and it makes my furniture smell so good! People always comment on how nice my couches and chairs smell, and I’ve always just said THANKS! But because I love all of you, I figured I’d let you in on my little secret 🙂
What I’m Cleaning My Windows With
When we moved into our house my brother and sister in law gave us a cute little goody basket and it included their favorite glass cleaner. And we are HOOKED on it too. Sprayway Glass Cleaner has quickly replaced any other glass cleaner in our home. It’s really good and I actually really like the way it smells to. It cleans glass and mirrors so beautifully with no streaks! We buy ours at Home Depot.
What I’m Cleaning My Bathroom With
The bathroom is my least favorite room in the house to clean. I think because it’s always the grossest. For the counters/sinks I really like this Scrubbing Bubbles cleaner. It doesn’t smell awful like so many bathroom cleaners do. (You know, so chemically that you choke just trying to clean out the shower.) We clean our toilets with Clorox Toilet Wands and I always wipe everything down in the bathroom with a Clorox wipe. I bought this Clorox Shower Cleaning Wand a few months ago and love it. Our tile goes up really high and I wouldn’t be able to reach the top of the shower without it!
What I’m Doing To REALLY Clean My Linens
Stripping them! I fell for the Tiktok trend like everyone else did during quarantine and couldn’t believe the results. This year, I’m stripping our curtains, decorative towels, bath mats and throw rugs. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!! (If you’re not sure what stripping is, check out Tiktok!)
So my friends, What’s Up with your cleaning routines?! How are you Spring Cleaning this year?! What are your favorite products to use?!
Alright, I’m signing off for the night. I’m ready to meditate and head to bed. No post tomorrow… March Madness starts and Trev and I will be watching the games! We like to fill out brackets at home and see who is better at it. It’s me. Always. 🙂
Have a wonderful rest of your week and a great weekend. I’ll be cleaning my butt off. And we’re working on some projects around the house! I’ll talk to you all on Monday!
PS… HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY! Hope you got at least one Guinness today 🙂 Cheers!
