Spring Cleaning with help from Target!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Lysol®, Finish®, Woolite®, and Air Wick®. The opinions and text are all mine. 

I was recently asked by Reckitt Benckiser to create some unique tips for using their products and I want to share them with you! 

With spring FINALLY here, my focus turns to spring cleaning! When I was growing up you knew when spring arrived because like clockwork my Mom would announce that spring cleaning was going to commence. This involved us kids cleaning our rooms, including washing the walls and every nook and crevasse. This was a serious endeavor and you had to do a good job because Mom inspected when you claimed to be done. Floors, woodwork, window washing and curtains.

The mattresses had to be flipped, vacuumed and sprayed. Using Lysol Disinfectant Spray helps by killing 99.9% of viruses and bacteria. I love getting the crisp linen scent - it smells like my sheets dried on the clothes line. I use this spray on my couches and bedding regularly.

I use Lysol's All Purpose Cleaner for so many things - removing soap scum from my showers, cutting grease on my stove and counters, and inside of my garbage can for those nasty germs! From bathroom to kitchen, this is my go-to cleaner.

Lysol's Power Toilet Bowl Cleaner is a constant in my home - I have two teenage boys who have a lot of friends that come over -- no further explanation needed! 

If you buy any three Lysol items at Target between April 9-29 you get 1 free, and when you use the Target Cartwheel offer you will save 5% off any Lysol cleaning item! That will help with your spring cleaning!

One of the most important parts of the process was washing and packing away our winter clothes for the season. It sure would have been easy if I had Woolite High Efficiency Extra Dark Duel Formula with "Color Renew." 

If you look in my closet you will see that over half of my wardrobe is dark - I love how I feel in dark clothes, especially pants, but I sure don't like it when they fade and once they start to fade I don't want to wear them. Woolite Darks helps keep my dark colors vibrant because of active ingredient that acts as a collector of loose dye particles so it prevents color transfer. It also renews my clothes as it smooths rough fibers and removes pilling! I love it!


You can find Woolite Darks at Target and if you buy any two Woolite 100oz products before April 8, you get a $5 Target Gift Card! PLUS you get 5% off any Woolite item using Cartwheel!

Using all of these products help me spring clean my whole house, room by room and step by step. While my house may not be as clean as I would ever like it to be, spring cleaning makes sure that I start off a new season as clean as it will ever be. Target helps me save money too by using all their savings on Cartwheel! When you go to the Target microsite, you will find many great coupons and promotions!

  1. I am always looking for safe, inexpensive cleansers. I'm leaning towards using natural whenever possible.

  2. I have never tried Woolite for dark clothes. It does sound amazing though.
