We moved into our new home last August, and I’ll admit that staying on top of keeping it clean and organized has been a struggle since we had a second child.
When I went back to work after my maternity leave, we decided that we would hire a cleaning lady twice a month and we would maintain our home in between her visits. With both of us working full-time and wanting to spend as much time as possible with our children, it’s a luxury we’re glad we invest in.
Though we have help, there’s absolutely no way we could go two weeks without cleaning our home, so in between our professional cleanings, we spend time wiping down counters, cleaning the bathrooms, etc. We also got a Roomba that has been a Godsend in keeping our dark hardwoods clean since they show every.little.speck. The time we can (or want to) devote to cleaning on evenings and weekends is very little, so I try to find ways to get a lot of our home maintenance tasks done quickly.
Recently I got to test out new Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Micro-Scrubbers. I’ve been using Clorox wipes for years in our home and at work, but the reason I especially love this new version is because one side of the wipe has a micro-scrubber texture that works on more stubborn messes and grime. It still has the same germ-killing power of their regular wipes (they kill 99.9% of germs*, including E. coli, Salmonella as well as the cold and flu virus) but the textured side really helps you get those harder-to-clean messes: perfect if you’re in the mood to get your deep spring cleaning on! I love that they’re safe for granite (as well as many other surfaces) because we get build-up around our bathroom faucets and these wipes remove it so easily. I also love using them in the kitchen and even keep a pack on my desk at work. You’d be surprised at how grimy your desk can get especially if you eat your lunch there which I do almost daily (and don’t forget to get some compressed air to clean your keyboard too!) It’s so easy and convenient to just grab a wipe and toss it when you’re finished. We keep a package on every floor of our house and like I mentioned earlier, at work. Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Micro-Scrubbers come in a citrus scent which is my preference because it’s not too strong (I’m sensitive to smells).
