Spring Cleaning with P&G #Review #Giveaway #PGmom

Sorry the blog has been quiet lately, April has been a busy month. First my birthday, then Easter and then last weekend my Mom, Hannah and I went to Buffalo for a long weekend of girls shopping. Other than neglecting the blog, I've also been neglecting my cleaning which is the perfect lead-in to this post and a great giveaway!

Do you do a big spring clean every year? Today my car's winter tires got put into storage. And so did my winter jacket. I love putting away all things winter, and welcoming my spring and summer items to the front of my closet.

Like undertaking any big project, the big spring clean can be intimidating. I try to break it down by room and job. I do the things I prefer first (organizing what to keep and what to donate) before I do the things I less prefer (the big deep clean).


Some great P&G products that help include:

Tide Liquid Detergent

I use Tide to wash our winter jackets to make sure they are clean to store - and that they smell great, ready for next year.

Swiffer 360 Duster Extender Kit

Our new condo has ceiling fans in both of our bedrooms and our kitchen. I LOVE the Swiffer 360 Duster Extender - it grabs all the dust sitting on top, and nicely wipes the bottom of the fan blades.


Puffs Basic Tissue

Cleaning often includes collecting dust - which is why I need to have Puffs on hand while I clean - and sneeze.

One lucky YYZ Bambina reader will win a Spring Clean Giveaway Bundle (worth approximately $60) including:
