Keep a Cleaner Home While the Kids are Home for the Summer

It’s that time of year: school is out and the kids are taking over the house. Your children welcome this long-awaited hiatus with open arms, while you’re still trying to figure out how to keep them entertained for two months. It may seem as though your spotless standards for cleaning are dwindling, but with a little help from Soft Scrub, your home will continue to sparkle as per usual!

With the kids (and their friends) home for summer, your commonly used surfaces are likely to see more action than normal. Help keep your home cleaner with these tips:

Kitchen – Since your kitchen is now a full-blown cafeteria, cleaning it up may require a little more effort than usual. After cleaning up the clutter and wiping down the countertops, use Soft Scrub Multi-Surface Gel to make them really shine. It’s designed to gently polish your stone surfaces, such as granite or marble. This same gel can also be used to wipe off your glass-cooktop and stainless steel sink. Once you’re done, you won’t even be able to tell that you just fed a house full of kids.

Bathroom(s) – While the kids have fun at pool parties and playing outside, you find yourself hustling to get the house back in order. Although bathrooms can typically be cesspools of germs, you’re determined to beat the odds with yours. No matter how many sticky hands and muddy feet make their way through the bathroom, Soft Scrub with Bleach Cleanser can be used to tackle all of those bathroom germs! Don’t forget about Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care to help keep your toilet glistening clean with each and every flush.

Flooring – Whether it’s your turn to host a movie night sleepover or family game night, your home (and cleaning skills!) are put to the test. With kids trekking and trampling all over your floors, they can be a challenge to keep clean. Don’t worry, this is a challenge that you’re up to! If you have plastic laminate flooring throughout your home, use Soft Scrub with Bleach Cleanser to keep your floors looking good. If tile is your floor of choice, don’t neglect the grout that comes along with it. Soft Scrub Total All Purpose Cleaner with Bleach Spray can fight grime on both your tile and grout, as well as throughout your home.
