Spring Cleaning Tips and Tricks

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Walmart.

It's that time of year when we thinking about refreshing our homes and that starts with cleaning. I don't love cleaning, but I do love how everything looks and the sense of accomplishment when the tasks are completed. I take the time when I am spring cleaning, to go around and do the tasks that don't normally fit into my regular cleaning schedule. These are things that maybe you don't think about, but they can make your house look nicer and more welcoming.


1. Clean Your Driveway. YES! My husband pressure washed our driveway and I didn't think it would make very much difference, but now our whole driveway looks brighter. And if you have pesky oil stains on your driveway, you can use Dawn Original to help you remove them.

2. Clean Your Washing Machine. You might think cleaning a washing machine seems redundant. I mean that's what it's for, right? To clean things. But grime and bacteria can build up over time and leave your clothes smelling horrible. That's what happened to us. It's super easy to clean and doesn't take very long at all.

3. Re-Arrange Your Furniture. If you can, it's good to re-arrange your furniture a little bit, but if you can't at least move your couch, TV stand, etc. to dust or vacuum where they were. It is AMAZING all of the stuff that falls into the nooks and crannies.

4. Wash Your Walls. What? You don't do it already? I have a 2 and 5 year old, so this is part of my cleaning routine already. But it's one of those things that you may not think about if you don't have a two year old running around and smearing peanut butter everywhere.

5. Re-Fresh the Scent. After all that cleaning, you're house may smell a little too much like cleaning products. I love Febreze Air Effects Linen & Sky. Just a few sprits and you are good to go. I also like putting dryer sheets in all of my closets and even our clothes drawers. I like to surround myself with nice smells and with a toddler still in Pampers, Febreze is a must have!

Spring Cleaning Tips and Tricks
And stocking up on all your spring cleaning supplies is easy thanks to Walmart. They have everything you need to Stock Up and Save. Buying in bulk is one of my favorite ways to save money because the bigger size is usually the better bargain plus you don't have to run the store as often, so you are saving time and money. Plus starting April 11, you can save even more when you submit receipts using the ibotta app.

- Simply head to your local Walmart to get everyday essentials for less in April. You can also head to to order everyday essentials as well.

  1. These are all fantastic tips! As a SAHM of 3 under 6, I clean often. But I look forward to Spring Cleaning every year as we always tackle the whole house and it makes the home feel incredible! :) I also try to rearrange my kids rooms, not only for cleanliness but it's always nice to switch things up a little! I am with you on the surrounding myself with good smells, P&G products are the best!

  2. These are some great tips! I really need to do a deep cleaning of my whole house!

  3. My spring cleaning tip is to do window blinds and baseboards first. They are always the worst in the spring after a long winter. I do stock up on some things when they go on sale like toilet paper and laundry soap.

  4. Great tips!! There is so much that we forget about doing, these are great ideas! Thank you for sharing with us at the #HomeMattersParty

  5. These are such useful tips! It's going to help a lot :)

  6. I love these tips! I had to laugh about moving the furniture because it's so true... I'm pretty sure I have cheerios under my couch that are close to a year old. :)

  7. Wow awesome tips. Mine would be do not forget to wash those blinds and curtains you would be surprised what a difference this makes!

  8. Gather supplies together in a tote to take room to room so you always have what you need to clean.

  9. I am so energized to do spring cleaning, and have been chipping away at it every day. I can only do so much as I'm very sensitive to dust and wear a mask, but it gets in your eyes, too. I love spritzing freshener, too!

  10. Have all the supplies you need and do one thing at a time. Finishing one room or even corner gives you a sense of accomplishment.

  11. LOVE shopping walmart to save money!! My spring cleaning tip is paying a maid lol ;)
