It’s another sponsored post! With a giveaway!
I seriously don’t know how it happens every year at the same time, but Spring Cleaning Fever is a real thing. For me, some years are better than others, depending on how well I’ve been keeping up with the everyday stuff. There is something about nice weather that makes me want to clean a little deeper and stop ignoring things that were once easy to ignore.
This post contains TWO exciting things:
- A reminder about the BIG contest Zep Commercial is hosting that’s a total fit for this blog’s audience.
- A (waaayyyy smaller, but awesome) cleaning supplies giveaway here on A Slob Comes Clean that’s super-easy to enter!
Now for details on #1:
This is a reminder that Zep Commercial is hosting an awesome contest to find America’s Biggest Hot Mess. I hope HOPE HOPE one of you wins! (Though I have nothing to do with choosing a winner!)
Here are the contest details:
Zep Commercial is searching for America’s Biggest Hot Mess—that person who is undeniably and hopelessly challenged when it comes to keeping their home clean.
Zep Commercial will accept photo and video submissions for America’s Biggest Hot Mess at www.zepcommercial.com/americasbiggesthotmess.aspx between Feb. 6 to March 6, 2014.
Users can nominate themselves and are also encouraged to submit evidence of their friends’, family members’ and coworkers’ messy ways. If a person you nominate is declared one of the three overall winners, then you (the nominator) will receive $5,000.
Nominations and submissions should include a photo or video of the mess and story behind why that persons deserves professional cleaning help. Videos must be between 30 seconds and 2 minutes in length, and photos should not exceed 100MB. Acceptable formats for submissions include .jpeg, .jpg, .gif, .png, .mov, .mpeg, .mwv or .mp4.
Starting March 7, a team of cleaning experts at Zep Commercial will judge all eligible entries based on:
- The Story Behind the Mess (40%)
- Creativity (the funnier, the better!) (35%) and;
- Unbelievability Index (just how disgusting is the mess?) (25%)
From all eligible entries, the 10 entries with the highest scores will be named finalists.
The public will then vote on their favorites, and the three submissions with the most votes will be declared winners and will receive a complete house cleaning from Zep Commercial and $5,000 to help keep their home clean for one year. If the winners were nominated by someone else, the nominator will also receive $5,000!
Winners will be announced on or about April 7, 2014.
How cool is that? Start snapping pictures and taking videos!

And details on #2:
I’m so excited to host this giveaway of a gift pack of awesome cleaning products from Zep Commercial. New cleaning products arriving in the mail is great motivation to tackle those extra icky spots. One commenter on this post will win!
Anyone can enter. Just leave a comment on this post and I’ll use the “And the Winner Is . . . ” WordPress plugin to randomly choose one winner.
If you want more chances to win, link to your entry (or entries) into Zep Commercial’s America’s Biggest Hot Mess Contest. You can enter that BIG contest (like, with a professional cleaning AND $5,000 as its prize) once each day, so for each entry you’ve made there, you can get one more entry to win this (comparatively) little ol’ giveaway here. Just leave an additional comment for each additional entry on this post with the URL to your entry in the America’s Biggest Hot Mess Contest. (Once someone has entered the contest, and their entry has been approved and posted on the contest page, there’s a “share” button they can click that will give them a URL to their post!)
I’m excited to see your entries there!
The prize pack offered here will be a $55 value and will look similar to the one above (though it may have a few different things in it). Giveaway will close Thursday, March 6, 2014 at 9 p.m. Central.
Leave your comment(s) here on this post on the blog. If you’re reading via email, just click on the title of the post to get to the blog to enter. Replies to email subscriptions won’t count as entries.
I will use the And the Winner Is . . . WordPress plugin to randomly choose a winner and that winner will have 48 hours to respond to my email and provide a shipping address. If the winner does not respond in 48 hours, he/she will forfeit the prize and another winner will be chosen. Zep Commercial will provide the prize and ship the prize directly to the winner. This is a sponsored post which means I was compensated for writing it and for coordinating the giveaway of the gift pack of cleaning products. I am in no way involved in the America’s Biggest Hot Mess contest and you must read and follow all rules on that contest’s website. See all my giveaway policies here.
