Not-So-Bad Spring Cleaning



As most of you know, I recently moved.  The opportunity to do my BzzAgent duties by trying out SC Johnson cleaning and spring freshening supplies couldn't have come at a better time!  This year, it's not just a matter of spring cleaning.  I had to clean the house we were moving in to and the house we were leaving behind!!

I received my BzzAgent kit, which included some products I'm familiar with: the Lemon Pledge and the Foaming Scrubbing Bubbles.  It also included products I would have been reticent to use or try: the Glade Plugin Scented Oil and the Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel.  As a bonus (to me), it included one of their Glade candles in a limited edition Spring scent, and coupons for me to utilize and pass out to some of my friends and family members.  I was happy to find coupons for floor care products to try on my wood flooring in the new house, not to mention the ceramic and linoleum flooring, too!

The biggest items for me, though, were trying the new products.  Using the Toilet Cleaning Gel was very different than the way we used to clean toilets!  One application of the disk and it's still cleaning my toilet two weeks later!  How do I know?  I still smell it every time I walk into the bathroom!!

The Glade Plugin Scented Oil was cause for trepidation.  I have a very sensitive nose, especially after quitting smoking.  I don't want my home to have any overpowering smells.  Too much of a good thing with home scents can be bad.  When I got home from work on the first day of the Glade Plugin experiment, I was overwhelmed by the scent.  I had it set to the medium setting in the kitchen, which is my primary door of use.  So I turned it down to low and moved it.  It's now by the front door, which is a more neutral location for the first floor of the house.  It's just about perfect on the low setting.  I can tell it's there, but it's not overwhelming me.  And I like it so much that I bought more scents to try! 

What a great way to welcome Spring!  Now if we could just get the weather back on track... ;-)
