Let’s get real, I try to keep my home neat and tidy but Spring always gives me that extra boost to get down to business with a deep spring cleaning.  This month, hubby hooked us up with one last session with our cleaning lady while I was in the hospital giving birth to Finn (by the way, it was amazing coming home to a clean house, I highly recommend it!)

But, now that I am off on maternity leave, keeping the house clean is all up to me.  So, you can say it was great timing to be partnering with Pine-Sol to celebrate their fresh new Spring Blossom scent available now in Canada.  For those of you who don’t know me, I am not biggest homemaker around. So, thankfully, they are hooking us up with the “How To’s” on keeping any kitchen sparkling with powerful clean of Pine-Sol.

Kitchen Cabinets

  1. Dilute ¼ cup of Pine-Sol® in one gallon of warm water.
  2. Dampen a sponge in the mixture, wring out so it’s just damp to wipe away grease, grime and dirt. Optional: Scrub stubborn messes or stains with full strength Pine-Sol®, using a sponge or soft cloth.
  3. Finish by rinsing with water and wipe kitchen cabinets dry.

Refrigerator

  1. Clear your fridge of all food items, moving items that need to be kept refrigerated to a cooler or a sink full of ice.
  2. You may want to tackle the refrigerator right before a grocery store trip so you have less to move.
  3. Turn down the cooling power so it’s not as chilly for your scrubbing session.Dilute ¼ cup of Pine-Sol® in a gallon of warm water.
  4. Sponge down the inside fridge walls with the solution.
  5. You may need a full-strength dose to handle those hard-to-clean areas.
  6. Follow up by thoroughly rinsing any surface that might come into contact with food or food containers.

Tile Floors

  1. Add ¼ cup of Pine-Sol® to a gallon of warm water.
  2. Wet a mop, sponge or cloth with the mixture.
  3. Wipe down the tile, taking care around slippery floors.
  4. Apply Pine-Sol® full-strength to tough spots, using an old toothbrush to clean grout stains. Follow up immediately with a water rinse.

Countertops & Backsplash

  1. Dilute ¼ cup of Pine-Sol® in one gallon of warm water.
  2. Dip a sponge in the mixture to wipe grease and grime away.
  3. Or for everyday mess control, keep the Pine-Sol® mixture in a spray bottle for quick cleaning spritzes.Scrub crevices in counters with grout with an old toothbrush.
  4. Scrub stubborn messes or stains with full strength Pine-Sol®, using plastic scrubbing pad or cloth. Finish by rinsing with water.

Garbage Bin

  1. Pour a little Pine-Sol® onto a cloth or paper towel.
  2. Wipe down your trash receptacle inside and out. Rinse with water, and you’re done!
  3. Better, right? Remember to throw on some gloves — sometimes it’s better to be safe than pretty!

Walls

  1.  Add about ¼ cup of your favorite Pine-Sol® scent to a gallon of water.
  2. Dip a sponge, rag or cloth in the mixture and wring out until it’s lightly damp.
  3. Then, start wiping down the walls from top to bottom, using Pine-Sol® at its full strength on stubborn marks.
  4. Wipe down the walls with water.Finish up with a dry wipe to prevent streaking.
