Spring Cleaning with Mr. Clean
A big thanks to Mr. Clean Magic Erasers for sponsoring this fun Spring Cleaning post. Spring is here, the sun is shining and it’s time to do some deep cleaning. We’ve been having beautiful weather. I just want to open all the windows and work my way around the home cleaning every room. One of my favorite cleaning products that you can use in every room is Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. I used them throughout the year – for all sorts of stuff – they really are magical.
I have white tiles for my kitchen counters (hopefully disappearing soon). If you have white tiles in your kitchen you know the struggle is real to keep that grout clean… it’s a job! I love that I can get the magic eraser damp and with a little rubbing the grout is clean.
I painted our maple kitchen cabinets a couple years ago. I painted them white – which I love – but if you have white cabinets you know the drill.
Here’s how dirty one of my cabinets was…
Fingerprints… dirt and grime!
And quick wipe down and it looks freshly painted.
Another great example was our kitchen sink. It’s been neglected the past weeks (we’ve had the stomach flu / sinus infection fun going on) – plus I let it sit to let it get really dirty so you can see how great it works.
Nasty right! Once again Mr. Clean brings the muscle so with a little wiping it’s sparkling clean.
Magic Erasers have water-activated micro-scrubbers that penetrate surface grooves anywhere that dirt and grime like to get trapped… making cleanups around your home so much easier.

Here’s a super cute video where Jillian Harris shares her dirty little secret when it comes to cleaning. I got to take part in a google video hangout with her a few weeks ago. She’s SUPER sweet and funny. Myself and a few other bloggers got to ask her some questions. One of my favorite was question was how she’d clean if she only had 10 minutes until company was coming over. Here’s her great answer: ” I always focus on the kitchen because that’s naturally where everyone hangs out. I shove a lot of stuff in the junk drawer and I use the Magic Eraser – it’s so funny how much of a difference it makes just getting rid of those little scuffs and those little nicks around the base boards. I also like to spot wash the walls and make sure the island and counter tops are totally cleaned off. I’ll grab some fresh flowers from outside if its that time of year, light a candle and sometimes open up the windows just to allow a little bit of fresh air in. And if you have wine out, nobody notices how messy your house is!” I love using Magic Erasers in my kitchen!
