Prepare Your Home For Thanksgiving With Mr. Clean (And Win!)

Now that fall is here, we've settled back into a regular routine without missing a beat. Sometimes the morning rush can be pretty hectic, but overall, the transition from summer to fall was smooth and we're loving everything about the season has to offer, from apple picking to wagon rides at the pumpkin patch.

This Thanksgiving long weekend, we'll be celebrating with family and friends, and eating more than we should. But that's what the holidays are all about, right?


I'm thankful for so much—especially spending time with my family and friends. We are of course planning a big feast, as we do for Thanksgiving; we're even celebrating twice, because we've got a big Greek family and we love food.

Before we sit down to eat (and eat and eat!) I'll be cleaning, as I always do—but since we're entertaining in our home this long weekend, ALL the cleaning supplies come out. Greeks have a thing for good food and they also have a thing for very clean homes. I don't think my mom or grandmother believe in resting; whenever I'm in their homes, they are always doing some sort of chore. It's just who they are, I guess. Along the way, they've taught me the importance of keeping a clean and tidy home.

Mr. Clean is a product I always use because it gets the job done.


Here are some of my #15MinReno tips to get your home sparkling clean:

Use Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to clean up your walls. My entrance is the one area in my home I'm always cleaning—over and over again. A few days ago, I took the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and I cleaned up the walls. NO more fingerprints or marker! Magically, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser even works to get rid of Sharpie stains. I know because I've used it to get rid of some writing on the wall of my son's room. It's truly a miracle cleaning product.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is also perfect to use to clean the outside of your kitchen cabinet doors. In minutes, your kitchen will look almost new again. This tip is especially useful if you've done a lot of cooking and baking in your kitchen. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is also great to get rid of stains and scuffs on the oven, backsplash, and countertops, too. Voila—brand new looking kitchen!

I also love using Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to clean the baseboards in my home, and in hard to reach places like in between my banister spindles.

To tackle the bathroom (everyone's favourite room to clean!) I use Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle on the counter, in the sink, on the walls, and even on the floors. I love the smell, and I love how it makes my bathroom perfectly clean.

Use Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle to clean the bath tub to get rid of any soap scum. Stains are instantly gone.



To help your family get ready for the holidays, I've got a sweet giveaway for you!
