Spring Cleaning Tips:
I love Spring time! It means amazing weather, new flowers and spring cleaning ideas. I love spring cleaning because it is when I tackle some of the cleaning projects that I do not do on a regular basis.
In the kitchen during spring cleaning I recommend wiping down all the cabinets. To do this remove everything from each cabinet so you can wipe down the interior of the cabinets. During this time, I always like to check the dates on all my food. And ask myself is this a product I have used in the last year. If not, I put it in a giveaway pile.
In addition to wiping down the interior of the kitchen cabinets I always recommend wiping down the exterior of the cabinets and the pulls. I was shocked just how dirty the exterior of our cabinets where.
We bought our house during a crazy time in the housing market. We looked for a home for 2 years. During those 2 years we lost houses to all cash offers and by not going to see it the first day it hit the market. So, every day I checked for new listings online. When our house came on the market we were the first family to see it. Over that weekend they had over 25 families come to see it. Kurt was sold on it, but I was really worried about the kitchen.
I love a light and bright kitchen. And this kitchen was anything, but!!! Kurt assured me that if we got the house we could make updates to the kitchen. While I really wanted to tear out the entire kitchen we settled on knocking down a wall, removing cabinets, adding lighting, remover the header, painting the cabinets and changing the hardware.
Painting the kitchen cabinets made the biggest change of our kitchen remodel. But, we have lived here for 5 years and the cabinets are starting to show the wear and tear of being used every day.
When I heard about N-Hance I immediately thought where was this when we did our remodel? The refinishing durability “Test Kit” from N-Hance in my BabbleBoxx had me trying to convince Kurt that it is time for a major refresh again. I am still working on him, stay tuned! I hope I will have a cabinet refinishing story to share.
The N-Hance Wood Refinishing products are designed for cabinets. They have a rock-hard finish that is very durable. They are made with an acrylic-polyurethane blend that is cured with ultra-violet light. Have a certain color in mind? Don't worry they can match any color. Check out the durability test in the video below.
- Refresh your faucet - Cut a lemon in half and rub it on the faucet to remove any stuck-on water marks. Then put the lemon down the disposable to freshen the disposal.
- Clean your microwave - Use the other half of the lemon and squeeze the water into a ½ cup of water. Add in the rinds of the lemon to the cup. Microwave the mixture for 2-4 minutes depending on your microwave. Wait 5 minutes and then wipe down the inside of your microwave.
- Replace sponges - Spring cleaning is a great time to replace your sponges including your dish wand. This spring we replaced our dish wand with the Scrub Daisy® from Scrub Daddy. My favorite part of this dish wand is that it is scratch free, resists odors This system is so cool because it has interchangeable cleaning heads uniquely shaped to clean items like thin vases and baking pans! All the heads are made of FlexTexture® to scrub, ResoFoam® for suds and their latest innovation, ArmorTec®, to scour. And how cute are these smiley faces?

The other big part for our remodel was hardwood floors. I always wanted them. When we adopted Addy, we were so excited to have a dog that does not shed. Turns out she does!!! And her light fur stands out on our dark hardwood floors.
Spring cleaning time is a great time to determine if it is time to upgrade your vacuum. We recently did and now my robot vacuum is my new favorite household device. Thanks to Babbleboxx we have the best robot vacuum, ECOVACS DEEBOT 600. Did you know that you could have a vacuum that allows for automated cleaning, integrating seamlessly into busy lives and smart homes? The vacuum comes with obstacle detection technology, and smart motion to clean hardwood floors and carpets.
Did you know that you could have a vacuum with an app and syncs with Google Home and Amazon smart home systems? Which means if spills happen you simply need to say DEEBOT, start cleaning. As a mom of a girl who loves to craft especially with glitter this is a dream.
During spring cleaning, you should also use a fabric softener wipe to clean off all your baseboards.
