Thanks to Proctor & Gamble and Walgreens for sponsoring this post!
Spring weather (when it actually arrives) gives me the itch to clean things I’ve successfully ignored over the winter months. Suddenly, messes that were small annoyances become crazy obvious and scream out to be CLEANED!
Walgreens and P&G are partnering to offer some great deals to help you get your messes cleaned up and your home sparkling again. If you spend $20 on participating P&G products at Walgreens, you can get $5 off your next purchase! This promotion will be running from May 6 through June 30 in the Dallas area.
Get the Grime Off Your Much-Touched Surfaces with Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
I’m rather obsessive about washing my hands, and I try to pass that obsession on to my family members.
I do not understand how in the world every surface that hands touch gets grimy. But it totally does. Lightswitches, the area around doorknobs (how in the world do we miss the doorknob so often when reaching to open the door??), kitchen appliance handles, and even remote controls!
Mr. Clean Magic Erasers clean those grimy areas like . . . magic. Really. I just wet it, squeeze it out so there’s no dripping to worry about, and erase the dirt. This works so well, it’s honestly shocking sometimes. (And strangely satisfying.)
Like the grime around the handle on my white cabinet. It’s hard to photograph grime (really . . . ), but do you see the results of a SINGLE SWIPE with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser in that last photo?
Surfaces that I once thought uncleanable when I’d tried to tackle them with wipes or brushes are easily cleaned.
Swiffer Away the Built-Up Dust Bunnies/Chunks
Calling them “dust bunnies” makes them sound cute. More realistically, they’re “dust chunks.”
If your ceiling fan has built-up dust chunks, the Swiffer Duster (which you know is one of my favorite cleaning products) will get it cleaned quickly and easily. I like using it because I can make a big difference with a gentle dusting, and I don’t worry about spraying products onto my ceiling fan or trying to hold it still while wiping and somehow messing up the balance.
The Swiffer Duster trapped the dust, kept it from falling in my face, and was gentle enough that the fan never even moved.
If you walk by your AC intake vent and do a double take because it has suddenly grown fuzzy . . . grab your Swiffer Duster and do a quick swipe over the vent to get it clean. While the building mess doesn’t register in my vision, having the vent look clean and fuzz-free does make me notice how much nicer my hallway looks.
Clean Windowsills and Baseboards with a Combo of Swiffer Dusters and Mr. Clean Magic Erasers.
Opening the windows and letting in the sunshine means seeing the grossness that has built up on my windowsills over winter. I remove the loose dust and dirt first with my Swiffer Duster and then get the grime off with the Magic Eraser.
The same combo works well for baseboards. Sometimes, simply Swiffering them is all I need to do, but if there’s ground in grime left, Mr. Clean takes care of it for me.
Keeping Blankets Fresh when Packing Them Away for Next Year
With the arrival of warmer weather, I like to pack away our winter blankets. Washing them before storing them is important, and I know so many of you LOVE your laundry to smell wonderful.
You know I can’t personally do scented laundry, but for those who can, GAIN and Downy Unstoppables provide lasting scent (up to 12 weeks) that will have your blankets still smelling great when you pull them out next fall.
And if you’re dealing with the mustiness of beach towels and spring linens coming out of the closet, Tide PODs will get them fresh and clean and ready for the coming summer.
Selected Walgreens stores will be hosting sampling events for these products on May 12th and 13th in the Dallas area. Stop by to get your FREE samples of Downy Unstoppables, Tide PODs, Gain Flings, Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, and Swiffer Dusters (while stock lasts). See below for the list of Dallas area stores and the times of their events below so you can get a Healthy Home too!

Ohhhh I’ve finished cluttering at the speed of live and am now listening to how to manage your home without losing your mind… God bless you! Evidently my brain functions are similar to yours. I have had so many Duh moments! There is already notable changes occurring in my home! I’m so happy thank you for the work you do! Your honesty is refreshing! My husband has a whole shop of “might need em’s” and to be honest he puts mine out there as well to help me out. Which weighs on me, I realized how much after reading your books!
The question if I needed it would it even occur to me that I had is is such a wonderful question… and truly helps me make decisions….
Life changing for sure! Understanding my house is a container, and it not me dictates what it can hold is truly amazing!
Understanding clutter threshold truly grasping it amazing. I now understand living beyond my clutter threshold has kept me in paralysis for years! Honey I’m 58 and just understanding! God bless you, your work, and your family.

Dana, (I still want to call you Nony!)
Dusting the ceiling fans is so easy with a product like that! (I use my Norwex wand.)
I do so want to get your new book, but I missed the 1.99 sale for audio. Boo!
Well, I’ll get it soon, hopefully.
Thanks for all the info about the events.
Too bad I don’t live in DAllas!

I’ve asked them to let me know when the events are posted for other areas so I can link. They’re not necessarily the same weekend, though.
