Springtime is here, and you know what that means right…..Spring Cleaning and Get Body Ready for the SUMMER!
I’m a mom with kids at home and getting to the gym doesn’t always work with my schedule. I need to workout at home but also need to clean my house so why not combine them to get both done at the SAME TIME!
First, let’s start out by SWEEPING- Inside and Outside! Sweep it off! One hour of floor sweeping can burn a total of 156 calories. *
Black + Decker 24” Indoor/Outdoor Push Broom is perfect for cleaning indoor rooms along with porches and walkways. A steel support brace provides control by minimizing the pitch of the broom head. The soft grip handle provides a comfortable and secure grip, and the Clic ‘N Loc™ ratchet system keeps handle from loosening. This brush is excellent- I can sweep our backyard so quickly, and it gives my ARMS a workout.
The Neat Sweep is a patented stand-up dustpan and pivoting broom from Butler, ideal for quick cleanups. The distinctive broom storage pocket keeps dust and dirt inside the dustpan while the handles fit together for easy storage. I have hardwood floors so I sweep 3 x a day (morning, afternoon, and before bed) and the Neat Sweep is my best friend and is so helpful. More arm muscles getting worked out 3x a day.
Time to Wash it off! One hour of washing dishes can burn almost 100 calories if done while standing. *
The new Dawn Luxe Premium Dishwashing Gloves are made from a proprietary, latex-free blend. The gloves’ soft, plush lining is infused with a moisturizer that softens hands while being worn, without feeling greasy. Additionally, an embossed palm grip provides consumers with a safe and secure hold and are an excellent alternative for consumers who are allergic to natural rubber latex.
Cleaning windows, walls, cupboard doors and stovetops or even washing down patio furniture is made accessible using 100% biodegradable Twist Loofah Sponge. They’re all natural, unbleached, undyed and entirely plant based and compostable. Perfect for garden lovers too.
Three times a week I clean my kitchen from top to bottom. My kids have kitchen duty every night, but they just don’t get it clean, well like how I want it. I stay about an hour in the kitchen, wiping down cupboards, fridge, stove, microwave and all counters. Of course before cleaning I put my Dawn Gloves on and get my handy dandy Loofah Twist Sponge then I’m ready to go!
Launder it off! One hour of doing laundry can burn up to 65 calories. *
I have four people in my house, so I’m always doing laundry! I know I’m getting my workout on with laundry because there is a lot of bending (squats) picking up my kids and husband dirty clothes. Love my pop up hamper because I put by the bathroom, and my kids actually will put their clothes in there then I carry to my bedroom where the laundry room is located. My washer and dryer are stackable, and I’m short so to get my clothes into the dryer I need stand on my tippy toes- so I do extra stretching while getting the clothes done. I do a lot of walking by getting the laundry and returning the folded clothes to everyone’s room.
Head off to the laundry room! Gain’s Round Pop-Up Hamper makes organization a breeze! Designed with a double lining to keep odor in check, the portable design easily adjusts to accommodate all loads of laundry, big or small. Transporting clothes is done with little hassle. Consumers can then fold the hamper down and easily store it away until next use.
Add a stylish twist to a tedious chore with the new Gain Ironing Board Cover. Made from durable material, the butterfly-patterned cover will protect ironing boards from damage and everyday use, perfectly combining fashion and functionality.
Just Clean it off! One hour of light cleaning, dusting, ironing and straightening up can burn over 100 calories. *
Now pets can help with your workout too, think of all the brushing and arm movements you are doing by all that brushing. My favorite get fit home exercise is WINDOW CLEANING. I work out my arms, legs, and waist. Check out the tools I use to get these jobs done!
The Evercare Fur Erase roller solves the problem pet-owners have been dealing with for decades. Using patented, rubber agitators to remove fur two times faster than a standard lint roller alone, this product can handle even the most stubborn clumps of dog or cat hair on fabric and furniture. Unlike other rollers on the market, the Fur Erase features a unique approach—first it loosens any fur with the agitators, then only picks it up with the lint roller, making the job effortless.
Black + Decker’s 10” Window Squeegee works ideal for any window job, specifically due to its distinct dual reinforced brace, high-quality European rubber blades and soft grip handle for a comfortable and secure grip.
