Thank you to Procter & Gamble for sponsoring this post and providing a prize to giveaway to one of my fabulous readers; as always all opinions are my own.
I don’t know about y’all but for me it seems like winter lasted forever, spring was only a few minutes long and all of a sudden ~BAM~ we’re already into the summer! While I did my share of Spring Cleaning inside the house, the outside hasn’t done so well yet. We already had one pool party I shared with you last week and this past weekend we hosted another for my middle son’s 5th birthday (details and pics coming tomorrow!) I knew that before we had guests again I wanted to get the outside areas cleaned up and I was lucky enough to receive some cleaning goodies from Procter & Gamble. (Did you know that you can pick up all of this good stuff at Lowe’s? That’s awesome for me since I’m there three times a week anyways!)
Procter & Gamble is also giving one of YOU the chance to win your own pack of cleaning supplies AND a $100 Lowe’s Gift Card!! Boo-yah! But more on that later, first, the cleanup!
The front porch definitely needed some TLC, the columns on the front of the porch were coated with grime, as was the flashing between the siding and stonework. And then for some reason about a gagillion tiny centipedes keep crawling up to my house and dying, leaving their nasty little corpses as a reminder that I need to get my clean on!
I busted out the Mr. Clean Pro outdoor spray and Bounty Paper Towels and wiped down the flashing. On the columns I broke out the Mr. Clean Outdoor Pro Magic Erasers and they worked like a charm. While I was doing all that my handsome hubby was kind enough to remove the centipede carnage for me!
The porch looked so great when we were finished that I started walking around looking for more things to clean with those Magic Erasers. Do you do that? If you follow me on Facebook you may have heard before that I have a bit of a problem with Magic Erasers…they clean so well I end up walking around just looking for more things to clean! So I moved on to the backyard!
In addition to cleaning the back patio, I tackled the baby’s little push toy (which I bought second hand and it was in dire need of a good cleaning!) I also used it on the boy’s playset. The playset is seven years old and we recently bought it used off of Craigslist and moved it to our house and it was just a wee bit in need of a cleaning! I’m telling y’all-I was a cleaning machine!
Now back to that giveaway, you can win your own “Summer Done Bright Prize Pack” courtesy of Procter & Gamble that includes a $100 Lowe’s gift card (score!), Mr. Clean Outdoor Pro Spray, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Outdoor Pro, Bounty Paper Towels, Tide Pods, and Duracell Batteries!
