How to Get a Sparkling Clean Home

This week I had a little more time to myself and I’ve spent a good amount of time getting the dirt and grime out, getting closer to a sparkling clean home!  

Not so much fun in theory, but in reality, I love a clean space and it motivates me to be more productive generally.

Over the last few years, I’ve found some true gems that have made cleaning so much less of a chore.  

Today, I’m doing a run down of my favorites products so that you can have a fabulously sparkling clean home too!

But first, know that the first step in getting your home clean is to declutter.

Cleaning takes 40% longer in a cluttered space.

No one likes to clean longer or more than they need to, so don’t skip this step!

Play the Timer Game each day to stay on top of loose items, taking the time to put everything away.

Scotch-Brite 3-in-1 Microfiber Kitchen Cloth

I have at least a half dozen of these wonder Scotch microfiber cloths.  

They work well to snag dust dry, but even better wet!  

What I like about these cloths is that they feel different from other microfiber cloths, and feel much nicer in my hand.  

I don’t know exactly how to describe it- some microfiber cloths feels sticky and yucky.  

It’s a funky tactile thing, I guess.

And I know why!  

This little guy is awesome.  

And I really like that there is a 4 pack available because this is the sort of thing that you’ll want to have on hand at all times.  

The one I got about four months ago is just about ready to be replaced and I’ve been super pleased with how long my Scrub Daddy has performed!

This handy grabbing tool is fantastic for getting items out of hard to reach places.

I really do consider this to be an essential for homes with kids because kids, or maybe it’s just my kids, seems to get stuff stuck in the weirdest places.  

And this grabber has saved me on multiple occasions from having to move furniture to retrieve a toy or something else!  

Clutter in corners does not equal a clean home!
