Spring Clean with your Family!

Simple Strategies To Focus On Your Home, Your Kids, And YOU*

Spring has sprung and it is time to clean up our lives! I love to think about spring cleaning as a second chance at the New Year’s resolutions we all set back in January. What better time to focus on our family and get them really organized than springtime? Let’s GET IT TOGETHER before summertime fun hits.

First, The Kids’ Bedrooms!

Who hates tidying their kids’ bedroom? Me! But it has to be done. In my coaching practice, I advise parents that in order to accomplish this with the least amount of complaining, they need to prepare their kids in advance. For example, a week before, Mom and Dad need to say to their child over and over “Don’t forget, on Saturday we are going to clean your bedroom. It will take at least an hour. But, when we are finished we will all go out to the movies.” The child knows what to expect, has a goal to work toward, and Mom and Dad aren’t doing all of the work. The bonus is that you are also teaching your child responsibility.

One of my favorite mom hacks for spring cleaning is PURELL® Multi Surface Disinfectant. PURELL Multi Surface Disinfecting Spray helps me disinfect and clean surfaces quickly and easily, plus I can use around kids and pets as there are no harsh chemicals to worry about! Kids love to emulate us, so to make it fun, buy a mini spray bottle and fill it with water so they can join you on your disinfecting frenzy!

What Lurks In The Closet?

It’s so easy to push this mind-blowing activity off, so set a time on your calendar to do it, and get it done. My favorite GIT Tip is to do it immediately after a weekend breakfast when everyone is awake and refreshed. Then, divide and conquer! Each family member chooses a shelf, takes everything off the shelf and creates piles – a keep pile, a hand-me down pile, and a donate pile. Before you reorganize the closet don’t forget to spray off those shelves from all of the winter dirt and allergens with PURELL Multi Surface Disinfectant.

Disinfect The Bathrooms!

It can be a scary dark place underneath the sink. Especially after an especially rough cold and flu season. Take inventory of all the pain relievers, their sticky used cups and spoons, and expired medications and introduce them to the garbage pronto. Then disinfect and wipe up their goopy wet mess in the cabinet. New PURELL Multi Surface Disinfecting Spray kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses in just 30 seconds, so it’s a great product to use for that post-winter house cleanse.

The Science Behind Why PURELL Multi Surface Spray Is Awesome:

PURELL Multi Surface Disinfectant is a one-stop wonder saving you time and money because it multi-tasks and can be used around your entire home. It’s revolutionary alcohol-based formula kills germs like bleach, but without harsh chemicals and irritating fumes. It works on food-contact surfaces, which gives you the peace of mind to use it just about anywhere. Also, no water is required! This means you don’t have to rinse the surface or object after spraying because there are no harmful chemicals.
