Who’s ready for spring cleaning? I’m going to guess that no one is volunteering for tribute. I get it but I promise when you have the right tools in your belt, spring cleaning can be a breeze. Even if you hate cleaning, everyone loves a nice clean and de-cluttered home especially at the start of the new year.

3 Ways To Jump Start Your Spring Cleaning
I am excited to bring you 3 easy ways you can get a jump start on your spring cleaning and beyond. I actually love to clean but of course, I love products that make my life easier and get the job done quicker.
Tip: Invest In Quality Products
Update Your Cabinets
One way to make cleaning your cabinets easier is to invest in quality paint. A project I’ve been wanting to do since we purchased our home was to update the cabinets. I love a clean, crisp, white kitchen. Unfortunately, my dark cabinets don’t cut it, plus, you may not think they show fingerprints but boy would you be wrong! I haven’t painted them yet because I was afraid the latex paint would chip and scratch almost instantly. Insert N-Hance Wood Refinishing! I’m crazy excited because this product is what my dreams are made of.
N-Hance is made specifically for cabinets (not walls!) to provide a beautiful rock hard finish. I’m telling you, N-Hance could withstand even the stickiest of toddler’s hands. I put N-Hance and latex paint to the test! See the photo above? That is the result of penny scratches, a hammer, and sandpaper! Yes, N-Hance did see some dents and scratches but compared to latex paint.
- The penny practically just slid off the N-Hance when I was attempting to scratch it
- .The sandpaper seems to have taken off the sheen.
- After 15 hits, the hammer only put a few dents.
Latex Paint –
- The penny did some very visible damage.
- The sandpaper took more than just the sheen off in some places. I can see the plain wood under where the paint was.
- After 15 hits, you can see more than half of the dents the hammer created.
I’m so glad I found this product before redoing our cabinets. This is the type of durability and high quality I want in my kitchen especially because they’ll be white. And… well, kids.
The low VOC acrylic-polyurethane blend is cured with ultraviolet light providing little to no odor and gives you the rock-hard finish I mentioned. And yes I want white cabinets but N-Hance WILL color match to your current cabinet color or any color you want. I’m so happy that N-Hance sent me some test cabinet doors because I cringe at the thought of doing the durability test to my own cabinets. I can only imagine how horrible they’d hold up to a penny, hammer, and sandpaper.
Tackle Those Floors
I have a love-hate relationship with vacuuming. I love clean floors (and those vacuum lines!) but I have to bust out my vacuum daily. That takes at least 15 minutes downstairs and 15 minutes upstairs. We have 1 dog and 4 (yes four) cats… I have to vacuum daily. To get ahead of spring cleaning I’m happy to have an ECOVACS DEEBOT 600 robotic vacuum cleaner. This robot vacuum has literally changed my life so let’s talk about it more.
Behind the scenes, doing all the cleaning for me = true love. DEEBOT can easily sync with both Google Home or Amazon Smart Home systems so you can start cleaning with the simple command: “DEEBOT, start cleaning”. There’s even an ECOVACS app that allows you to clean anytime, anywhere with just the click of a button. If you want true hands-free (and voice-free) cleaning, you can also schedule regular cleanings. Imagine how great it would feel to come home from work with clean floors.
I have tile and carpeted areas in my home and DEEBOT glides over each with ease without any issues at all. And with different cleaning modes and DEEBOT’s obstacle detection technology, I never have to worry if DEEBOT will get stuck or lost somewhere. Like I said, LIFE-CHANGING!
If you don’t have the greatest dishwasher in the world like me or you simply like to wash your dishes by hand, then you know how important it is to have a good dishwashing wand. The handy Scrub Daisy from Scrub Daddy is sleek, sophisticated and super cute.
The dishwand system features interchangeable cleaning heads uniquely shaped to clean items like baby bottles and baking pans! If you’ve ever been faced with baking pans with stuck-on sauce you need this baby. Each brush head incorporates some pretty cool materials that make Scrub Daisy unique. FlexTexture® to scrub, ResoFoam® for suds, and ArmorTec® to scour away messes – all without leaving a scratch on your precious pots, pans, and dishware! And if you like saving money (I know you do) grab yourself some Scrub Daisy coupons before heading to the store.
Now that you have the right tools to get the job done right, what’s the first room you’ll be tackling this spring cleaning season?
