Spring Cleaning Time!

Spring has finally arrived, and the weather seems to be cooperating! The nicer weather makes me excited to get outside to prepare my patio for summer sips and socials, and to tackle the inside of my home with some spring cleaning!

This spring, here are my top tips to get your patio and house in “tip” top shape!


Spring Clean - Each spring I step outside and find my patio furniture in disarray from the harsh winter months. This year, I rolled up my sleeves and put OxiClean to the test on my weather worn patio furniture and cushions. I was surprised to learn that OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover isn't just for the laundry room; it has over 100 uses and works on tough stains throughout your home - both inside and out. OxiClean stain remover really helped me work my magic on the toughest stains on my cushions and furniture. And now that my furniture is spic and span, it's onto the refresh.

Dopamine Décor – I find the easiest way to refresh tired décor and furniture is a fresh coat of paint. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced painter, BEHR® is the ultimate DIY coach. This season, I am having fun infusing new life into a few of my patio essentials. I love that BEHR PREMIUM™ Interior/Exterior Spray Paint adheres to multiple surfaces. For my spring DIY projects, I tested out Khaki Shade on my wicker chairs and it worked perfectly to bring my tired chairs back to life. I then tried BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® Exterior Semi-Gloss Enamel Paint & Primer on my patio sign. I used Pink Quartz for a pop of colour and the results were stunning. Finally, I added a fresh coat of paint to my privacy fence to finalize my space and freshen it up for spring. Visit BEHR.ca for approachable how-to's and to view the 2022 Colour Trends Palette."

The 10 Minute Clean Up - Experts say that your house will stay cleaner by devoting just 10 minutes a day to short cleanups rather than marathon whole-home cleaning sessions. I am SO on board with this! I love products that help cut down on cleaning task times and also have a beautiful design. I fell in love with the Tineco iFloor 3 hybrid mop/vac. It combines two tasks into one – cutting the cleaning down by half by mopping and vacuuming hard surfaces all at the same time. With two dogs, three young girls and a contractor husband – let me say, this system is a huge spring-cleaning time-saver. Available at Best Buy Canada.
