Thank you to Lemi Shine for partnering with Everyday Eyecandy on this post! All opinions are my own.
FINALLY, it's time for the kids to go back to school! I don't know about you, but my house never seems to be completely clean in the summertime. Between my son taking root in the Den, us going out of town frequently, friends over, barbecues… when was I supposed to have the time to deep clean? But now, school is back in and I finally am alone in my house, it is the perfect time to clean. But if you are like me, you are busy, or you work, or you just don't want to! I'm here for you! Today I have a few back to school cleaning tips for busy moms like you.
BACK TO SCHOOL CLEANING TIPS FOR BUSY MOMS
Before you do ANYTHING, just take a trash bag and go room to room decluttering. This might mean going through and throwing away old mail, magazine, toys that are broken, clothes that will not fit by next summer, old book, notebook, pens that no longer work. Get rid of it all.
2.Use a multipurpose cleaner for all your surfaces
Was your mom like mine and had several cleaners for everything? Girl no! Save yourself time and money and get ONE multi-purpose cleaner like Lemi Shine's Multi-Surface Antibacterial Spray Cleaner. I love this stuff. Lemi Shine has created safe and reliable cleaning products that help make our lives easier. What I really love about Lemi Shine Products is that they are a better-for-you, non-toxic household cleaning brand powered by citric extracts. While I'm not a Green mom per se, I do like the products I use in my house to be safe. Lemi Shine is affordable and just as effective as traditional cleaners. Which is why I use it everywhere in my house to get the job done. ESPECIALLY now that school is in and I don't want Pookah bringing all those germs home!
3. Divide up your Days
ime to clean my entire house in one day, or even want to give up an entire Saturday to clean. So, I started having designated days for cleaning. Mine goes like this:
Wednesday: Living Room
This doesn’t mean that there aren't some everyday tasks that have to be done. Like load the dishwasher (I love having Pookah do this using the Lemi Shine Dishwasher pods here)
And other things like make beds, pick up toys, shoes, etc.
4. Put the other people in your house to work
Listen. The house didn't get this way with just you! Hand out chores, have family cleaning time, etc. Part of Pookah's chores is to make up his bed and to keep his room clean.
I'm adding bathrooms this month. My husband is responsible for his office and he will always wash a load.
5. Have a dedicated spot for everything school-related.
With school comes clutter: bookbags, lunch bags, books, supplies. Have a dedicated spot for them all so that you don't end up searching your house for a compass (ask me how I know).
So that's it. Those are my cleaning tips for busy moms during this Back to School season.
Only Lemi Shine gives you an effective clean that will meet your high standards while keeping you and your family safe from toxins and harsh chemicals. And at an affordable price.
