Spring Cleaning Inside the Home

The other day I shared my to do list for the outside of our home.  The to do list doesn’t stop there.  Inside the home we have a lot to do to jump start our summer too.

It’s easiest to start planning all you have to do by making a list to stay organized. Our list is:
Declutter  - Out with the old.  It’s time to box up, donate, and get rid of all the extra things that have stored up over the past year.  Each room will be attacked, including the attic and garage.
Deep Clean – I want to do a
thorough clean of our house to get rid of all the winter germs, and start the summer off fresh. 
Organize – Once everything is clean, it’s time to organize and find a spot for everything.  It’s easier to stay organized and clutter-free when everything has a spot to go.
Check the details – It’s a good reminder as the season changes to be sure your home is up to date on safety and health features.  Change your air filters, check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and check your fire extinguisher.  You can also find a local company that can do a check on your water heater, and HVAC system or air conditioner to make sure it’ll work properly during the hot summer months.  Another good idea is to check your exterior water lines for any damage that may have occurred over t
he winter.

I was recently asked to try out SC Johnson’s latest innovative product that makes cleaning a breeze, the Smart Twist™ cleaning system.  When I saw that it was one unit that combined three awesome cleaning products I knew it was going to save me time, and money so I was all about it.
Smart Twist Cleaning

Curious what this awesome gadget is?   With the Smart Twist™ Cleaning System, you have three amazing cleaners in one convenient and easy to use sprayer and you are ready for any room. Twist, Spray, and Wipe and you are ready for the next surface. You are in, out and back to what you really want to do.  And that’s exactly why it saves you so much time!

The Smart Twist™ Cleaning System is currently available online only and they are offering Free Shipping on orders over $24.99 (saving money again!)
They offer the system in ready to go bundles that make it easy to target certain areas of your home:
Kitchen/Bath $24.99:  The Sprayer plus one each of Windex® Glass Cleaner, Scrubbing Bubbles® Bathroom Cleaner and fantastik® Kitchen Cleaner concentrate cartridges.
Living Space $24.99: The Sprayer plus one each of Windex® Glass Cleaner, Pledge® Furniture Cleaner and Shout® Carpet Cleaner concentrate cartridges to fill the system.
A “Cover Every Base” Pack $34.99: You’ll get the Sprayer, two Windex® Glass Cleaner concentrate cartridges, and one each of Scrubbing Bubbles® Bathroom Cleaner, fantastik® Kitchen Cleaner, Pledge® Furniture Cleaner and Shout® Carpet Cleaner concentrate cartridges.
In addition you can buy 2 replacement bottles for $7.99, or 3 for $11.99.
I was excited to receive the “Living Space” bundle, which is perfect for so many areas in my home.  It was the perfect reason to give my office space a thorough cleaning which has been needed for a while.  My son has been dying of excitement to try this out since I opened the box (which is always a plus to have him helping out!).  What I loved most is how convenient it is to have three of my most loved cleaners in one handy unit.  My office space is upstairs so instead of hauling a tub full of cleaners I can just grab the sprayer and some paper towels and I have no excuses not to clean.

Furniture Smart Twist
Shout Smart Twist

Windows, desk, and carpet all cleaned in under five minutes.

Not only does the Smart Twist™ save you time and money, but SC Johnson is making your cleaning ways more earth friendly.  Each bottle is 25% post-consumer plastic and uses 64% less plastic than a standard trigger bottle.  By using the concentrate version of your favorite cleaner you add your own tap water and is equivalent to the standard trigger size bottle.

This post is sponsored by SC Johnson and I received the mentioned product to review. As always, all opinions are mine and I only share products and companies I truly love!


  1. This looks pretty interesting - I love the combo of cleaning products - less clutter in my cleaning cupboard.

    1. I know I was able to clean out so much space thanks to this now!

  2. That is like the coolest thing ever! I could sure use it for carpet issues and I think my son might even be inclined to help because it looks so futuristic!

  3. This is a really cool concept! Might have to try it out.

  4. What a great idea this is - especially lugging multiple cleaners up and down stairs! Thanks for sharing!

  5. How neat is this? I think I could even get my kids in on the action with this one!


Love hearing back from my readers, you make my day! Thanks, Pamela of PBJstories
