Getting the house in shape for the holidays with ProMist® Spray Mop #CleanForTheHolidays #Cbias #shop

Cleaning isn’t my favorite chore in the world – if I were to pick a household chore other than it, it would definitely be cooking! Nonetheless, its still something that needs to be done, no matter how much I dislike it. This is also the time of year when I stress myself out the most trying to get everything looking perfect too, because we have plenty of holiday visitors coming over. #CleanForTheHolidays

I noticed the ProMist® cleaning mop at Walmart and decided to give it a try and see how well it worked after hearing good things about it. It’s definitely lived up to the expectation!!

With a messy 5 year old, the kitchen floor really takes a beating because we eat and play in there. Between crushed cheerios on the floor and broken crayons in the corner, I have to make sure it gets a daily sweep. I’m so thankful that I chose a dark colored tile when we replaced the kitchen floor when we first moved in – simply because it doesn’t show up all the little blemishes that are easy to miss!

Of course nobody really wants those blemishes there in the first place, dark tiles or not! Which is why the ProMist® Microfiber Spray Mop is the best mop choice for my kitchen. It comes with a starter pad that attaches by velcro and can be washed in the washing machine. That means you don’t have to purchase expensive disposable pads – only when you want to!

I’ve used a similar brand, but what I don’t like is that you have to buy their special formula cleaning product that fits inside the mop. With ProMist®, it works the same way only you can fill it with whatever cleaner you like! I like how easy the refill bottle pops off and stands up on the counter with a simple push of the button on the front. ALSO – its fully mechanical, meaning it does not require any batteries to operate it!

I tend to do most of my housecleaning on Sundays, so I decided to give my new mop a try. Its so easy to use, I could get JP involved in the fun to help! I’m all about taking advantage of his desire to help me clean, because it won’t be long before he’ll make himself scarce when he sees the cleaning tools come out. #CollectiveBias

Between filling up the bottle and giving the floor a mop, it saves sooo much more time than getting out the real mop and bucket, ringing it out and mopping the old fashioned way. Now I can mop the floor moments before guests arrive and still have the floor looking perfect!

Create your own patterned rug with Vecco DIY Rug Decor

This post is sponsored by Vecco DIY rugs. All opinions are 100% my own.

Ever wish you could make your own rug? I’ve flirted with the idea many times – especially when I wanted to create a rug made entirely from colorful felt balls. Then I found out how much wool roving costs and exactly how much time and patience goes into each ball and changed my mind.

Although it seems like it may be a tall order, I’ve considered different ways on how it can be done. Painting, weaving, sewing or putting felt balls together – its all possible. However, with the new Vecco DIY Rug Decor products exclusively available from Micheals, you can create a one of a kind rug just the way you want it.

Vecco DIY Home Decor

Just as you see pictured above using a stencil and special rug paint, you can create a pattern in the colors that you desire. Don’t be mistaken – the rug paint isn’t actual spray paint, but rather its a powder. Should you make a mistake while ‘painting’ it, you can simply vacuum it up and start over. Once you have your design perfected, you spray the clear sealant over the entire rug to finish it. Once that final spray dries, you can begin using it!

Vecco is safe to use around your kids and pets, so get them involved if they want to help!

These products are exclusively available from Michaels craft stores, where you can find a wide variety of spray colors and stencils to choose from. Check out this video below to see it in action!!

I may never clean with anything other than Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day® products

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® cleaning products gave me the opportunity to share my thoughts about their products. All opinions are 100% my own.

Keeping it clean and (smelling good) with Mrs Meyer's Clean Day products #HomeGrownInspiration #ad

Let’s just say that cleaning isn’t my favorite thing to do. What’s more is that when I actually DO clean, most all cleaning products leave behind a floral bleachy stink depending on the brand you use. Nothing against it – but gross smells just add to the whole unpleasantness of cleaning. You know from what I’m talking about – like when you visit a public bathroom that has just been cleaned… I don’t know what smells worse, the bleachy stink or the public bathroom stink! That’s why I was so excited to try Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® products simply because they smell as awesome as they clean, with no stinky chemical after smells.

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day products were designed to smell pleasant, not like your average cleaner. I was really impressed with it after cleaning my craft mess when I made a thanksgiving wreath! It even has an after smell that lingers, so it doubles as an air freshener too!

Making it was fun – I wrapped a styrofoam wreath with burlap and decorated it with handmade felt flowers and colorful silk leaves.

 It was as easy as it was fun to make! JP also had some school crafting homework to do, and I had yet *another* mess to clean. Both the spray and the hand soap worked nicely together to clean everything up.

I love how the smell lingers on your hands for a good while after you’ve washed them!

Basil is one of my favorite kitchen scents for so many reasons. Not only does it act as a flavoring for my italian dishes, but it adds a smell to my kitchen that reminds me of my grandmother’s kitchen. She always had basil growing in the windowsills.

Now that I’ve learned about what Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day® products are all about, I may never clean with anything else again!
