October is a month that you will always actively find me cleaning my home. Not Not only is October home to Thanksgiving and Halloween, but it also houses many birthday’s of my family and friends. It’s a month that always tend to get a little bit crazy, hosting get together after get together.

So how do I stay on top of it all when raising 3 young kids? Simple!

My grandmother taught me at a young age that the key to a clean home is to not let it get too dirty. Of course, you are going to live in your home and so you should, but you can manage the day-to-day build up of filth by giving everything a quick wipe down daily. Delegating a chore or two to complete each day of the week works great too. I find this approach has always kept me from feeling overwhelmed when it comes to maintaining the cleanliness of the house, and trust me when I say I am a neat freak. I cannot rest unless the house looks somewhat presentable.


A product I swear by is Mr. Clean! I just love the Mr. Clean line of products. I always have.

Mr. Clean can be great when chasing away dirt, scuffs, stains and spills. Just in time for Thanksgiving and Halloween, Mr. Clean has provided 5 tips to help keep those monster messes at bay over the holidays:

Bubble, Bubble, BOIL and Trouble!

When pots boil over on the stovetop, they can leave an awful mess!  Dirty rings around the boilers and splatter marks on walls are no match for the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.  Cleaning the stains and scuffs off the oven, cupboards, countertops and the backsplash can make your kitchen feel like new.

Slime time!

No one wants their bathroom to look like a house of horrors.  After months of use, makeup counters can look like they’ve been attacked by a slime monster.  Chase away slime with Mr. Clean Concentrated Cleaner on the bathroom counter, floors and walls!

As white as a ghost!

Over time the bath tub can develop scary soap scum, devilish dirt and dreadful discolouration. Turn your bath tub white with fear with Mr. Clean Concentrated Cleaner.  Stains that you never thought would go away disappear in an instant, just like a ghost!

Vintage Vampires

Do you have tired antiques lurking in a basement corner?  Some  vintage pieces that are past their prime can look like they’ve been brought back from the dead.  Try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to make your antiques look like new again.  (Remember to test the magic eraser on a small area at first, before using on the entire antique).

Wailing walls and freaky floors

Have the kids tried to dress up the walls with markers and crayons?  Are there smudges on the fireplace and scuffs on the floors?  With the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, your walls will look like you applied a new coat of paint and the haunted hardwood will look brand new again.

And, also for a tip of my own:

Goodbye ghoulish odour, hello sweet smelling home!

Add a cap full of Mr. Clean Multi Surface with Febreze Liquids to your toilet. It acts as a great toilet cleaning agent, and if you let it sit in the toilet for a short while after scrubbing it, it will also act as an excellent air freshener.
