Snow cleaning

I know moves are difficult and I know inclement weather is a part of life, but severe winter weather with a bunch of Southerners who do not know how to drive in snow is nothing short of a disaster. My patience has really been tried with this move, but B and I have hung in there and we are now treating ourselves to a totally gross dinner of mac n cheese and corn dogs (and by gross, I mean delicious). B and I woke up at 6 am only to get his car stuck in driveway, hmph. I spent the latter part of the day cleaning the old place and found a couple of new favorite cleaning products. These might make your spring cleaning a bit easier.
I am a huge fan of the Method line and was thrilled when I ran across this scrub cleaner. It helped get some nasty stuff out of my refrigerator and it smells lovely.

Regular mopping is a necessity for hardwood floors and tile. I love the smell of Murphy's Oil and this spray helps reduce the amount of water needed which means less drying time.

Whatever you do, throw on some protective gloves. I did not take my own advise and am paying for it with chapped, dry skin.

And if you decide you're too good for gloves, make sure you have plenty of hand salve to repair damaged skin.

Happy cleaning!

May I also suggested Simple Green - you can find it just about anywhere. Dillute with some water and go to town - it is biodegradable, smells like pines, and will leave whatever it touches sparkling, beautiful and smelling of green.
Can you tell I loooove cleaning! And just two months ago I had to clean a house that previously had 3 (let me say that again THREE) pets inside and the people did not clean before they moved out.
You are awesome for doing such a good job of cleaning before you leave, it will be appreciated by the next renters.
