Keeping your home clean with a toddler is like chasing around a tornado. I feel like I clean up the same blocks 3 times a day!  But today I've got 3 easy tips to help you keep on top of the mess and avoid giant Saturdays full of cleaning.

I went to my favorite store (of course), Target, and grabbed some cleaning supplies by Clorox to make it even easier to keep up on the messes.

Here's what I grabbed using a coupon from the Target Cartwheel App, (June 7-July 4, receive 10% selected Clorox products): Clorox ScrubSingles Bathroom Pads (for bathroom cleaning), Clorox Pump 'N Clean Kitchen & Dish Cleaner (for kitchen cleaning), and Clorox Triple Action Dust Wipes (for rest-of-house cleaning)
 Tip #1: Clean as you go.  Leaving a mess for later means more time cleaning & scrubbing.  When we finish breakfast, I use the Clorox kitchen pump cleaner to quickly wipe up the mess on the table.
Pump, wipe, clean & you're done! On to the next activity!

Tip #2: Get kids in on the cleaning.  My son loves to help, but I'm not about to hand him a bottle full of cleaner...yikes! The Clorox Dust Wipes are an awesome way to not only clean, but teach your children the importance of it.  These wipes seriously grab and hang on to every single piece of dust or hair or crumb.  No dust spray or dirty rags to wash afterwards! 

They even work on the floor (think bathroom cleaning!), and make cleaning go by even faster with a helper by your side.

 Tip #3: Combine activities & cleaning at once. One of my favorite tricks to keeping the bathroom clean during the week is doing some quick "wipe downs" during bath time. I'm in the bathroom supervising, so why not make it productive?

Using the Clorox Bathroom Scrub Singles, it makes it easy to clean without once again, pulling out a spray bottle and dirty sponge or rag. Just wet, scrub and done! 
(Be sure you're still checking in on your little one, and if you're stashing cleaning supplies under your sink, be sure to take the proper safety precautions like baby locks.)

These new Clorox cleaning products make staying on top of messes super easy to maintain a clean home, and using my tips you'll wonder why you ever hated cleaning in the first place! Okay...maybe not totally but it'll definitely keep you from a whole day of cleaning when you're quickly cleaning as you go.


  1. Great post! I'm all about trying to keep the house clean as we go...once it gets out of control, it's so hard to get everything clean again. Thanks for sharing! #client
