Spring Cleaning Tips + BISSELL Upright Carpet Cleaner Giveaway!


Spring is finally here which means it's time to put on my spring cleaning gear. Here are some of my favorite spring cleaning tips!

#1. Always start from top to bottom!

Blame it on gravity because dusts always fall from top to bottom so start cleaning and dusting from the top of your shelves and furniture so you don't have to clean the same spot twice.

#2. Make a cleaning checklist to stay organized.

When our lives get too busy, cleaning can sometimes take a backseat. Having a list prevents us from getting overwhelmed and help us stay motivated during the entire cleaning routine. Check out this incredibly helpful 30-Day Spring Cleaning with BISSELL checklist. Print out this wonderful list if you must! It will serve as a great reminder in case you miss anything.

#3. Stay focused and clean one room/ area at a time.

I don't know about others but I like to clean one room at a time. Put all your focus on cleaning that one room you had in mind rather than cleaning a little bit of everything in every room. Having a clean room can make you feel more accomplished at the end of the day and it will motivate you to move on to another room. 

#4. It's all in the details.

When you clean a room, don't forget to clean the nooks and crannies. Ceilings, moldings, walls, doors and baseboards are some of the most overlooked areas when it comes to cleaning. Pay close attention to these areas because they are almost always the first thing guests noticed!

Also, don't forget to clean your carpets and area rugs. Vacuuming alone is not enough so I love using my BISSELL deep cleaner and BISSELL with Scotchgard™ Protector to achieve a professional carpet cleaning results. 




My BISSELL ProHeat 2X® Premier 47A23 Upright Deep Cleaner! 

Their new formula, BISSELL Professional Carpet Deep Cleaning with Febreze™ is a 3-in-1 solution that removes deep-down dirt and odors, freshens with Febreze®, and contains Scotchgard™ protection to keep my rugs protected from future stains.

  3. If you can, move any light furniture and be sure to deep clean the carpeting there! I just moved my sofa away from the wall this morning and deep cleaned the carpet there. The sofa moves surprisingly well across the carpeting!

  5. I like to go slow and work in one room at a time. That way I don't get overwhelmed and quit.

  7. My favorite Spring Cleaning tip is to listen to an audiobook or podcast while cleaning. Even the most mundane chore can become more interesting when you are engaged in a good story! :)
    Thank you!

  9. I LOVE your tips and checklist. My favourite tips are to keep vinegar on-hand for an all-purpose cleaner and to designate one day a week for each room (for example, Monday is for the bathroom). If you keep on top of a room it will never get too bad that you can't handle it. - floyddg@hotmail.com

  10. My tip is make everyone help. I find if the kids help they will keep try to keep it clean longer. I also like to put on some upbeat music and start with something I can notice to keep me motivated. I like Bissell's tip on how to remove static from your carpets, thanks!

  11. I've been trying to adopt the minimalistic style so recently I've been getting rid of all the clutter. That is the first thing I do I get big plastic bags and boxes to store things that are still useable but I don't need anymore so I'll donate them. Also winter stuff are stored in my storage house outside. They with a dust remover I dust off all the tables and furniture. I then disinfect and last but not least, I freshen up my house with some fabric refreshens or lit up some scented candles.

  12. Spring cleaning can be overwhelming to me, so my tip is to focus on one room, conquer it, then move on. This works best for me. I need to see the progress to keep me going. This product would be great to help me get thing cleaned up this Spring. Thanks! hoss311@aol.com

  13. My spring cleaning tips is to take an entire day to do as much as you can. I like to take a beautiful day-open the windows- and put loud music on, and just clean. I feel so much better after it's done! stevie(at)jewelsforhope(dot)net

  14. My favorite spring cleaning tip really cleans mini blinds! You need white vinegar, warm water, and a cheap pair of white gardening gloves from the dollar store, or an old white tube sock. Mix the vinegar and water, dip your gloved hand in the mixture, splay your fingers, and swipe them across several slats at once. Dirt will stick and no need to rinse. Don't forget the underside! So much easier than taking down the blinds and scrubbing them in the tub. Prepare to be amazed! stef(dot)reed(at)gmail(dot)com

  15. Don't clean your windows with bright light coming through. That makes a lot of sense. I also like the reminder about rotating my mattresses. I always forget to do this. Smith.jennifer400@gmail.com

  16. Shampooing carpets is a must! Especially since I have four dogs and a toddler. I move furniture slightly and place the legs of furniture on wax paper so it protects the carpet and the furniture. I also open the windows to quicken the drying process. I remove dust from ceiling fans by using the vacuum nozzle. It's smarter to do this first and then do the floors last. I also shake my welcome mats really good and clean them so people don't track pollen and other allergens inside. I always use my dry swiffer first to pick up dust bunnies.. it's amazing how dirty the house can get!

  17. When we do our spring cleaning we do it over several weekends with particular rooms slated for particular days. Otherwise the task of cleaning the whole house seems overwhelming. It is similar to your one room at a time approach, except maybe more prolonged!!! asotv@aol.com

  18. I do one room at a time and not rush into things right away. That makes me feel less overwhelmed when spring cleaning comes! docvel23@gmail.com
