How do you do a Deep Cleaning when you 1) Don’t have time to clean and/or 2) Hate to clean?
If you want some simple answers and tips on how to speed clean your cleaning like a boss, then this is the blog post for you. Our friends at Mean Green have provided Dallas Single Mom with a few complimentary cleaning products and have made us an ambassador (aka cleaning BOSS lady) for their products. Like most single or busy moms springtime means baseball or soccer games, spring food festivals, BBQs, spring brunches, and a multitude of activities that lure you away from the tasks of spring cleaning.
How many of you have not Deep cleaned your house in years? I hate to admit it but I am one of those people. A deep spring cleaning is essential to ensure that you air the house out, attend to things that are broken or need to be replaced and also a way to circulate the good juju or energy in your house. Yes this is also a time to declutter your space to either get rid of those things that no longer serve a purpose in your home, repurpose things or rekindle the romance with your stuff. If you have just divorced or had a major change in your life a good spring cleaning can really change the way you look at your living space and how you see life. Whenever I go through the stress of a major life change I have found being active, getting organized and cleaning was a healthy way to get rid of my home alone blues when the kids were at dad’s house for the weekend.
What is Mean Green?
Mean Green is actually the #1 Heavy Duty Cleaner in America. There’s a huge difference between a heavy duty cleaner and an all purpose cleaner. All purpose cleaners are the some of the store brands you may already be familiar with. What separates Mean Green from some of those other brands is that the other brands may not deliver heavy duty cleaning. Some of those other brands require pretreating for heavy stains and grease. If you live a life where the family is “All in” then you want a cleaner that can get the job done the first time. This is why Mean Green is great for busy moms that don’t have a lot of time to sit and wait for the cleaner to work for the second or third try. I’d prefer not to use up an entire bottle of cleaner to clean my stove top. Mean Green has also been a trusted brand for over 20 years and in independent lab tests Mean Green has beat out other brands for cleaning kitchen grease and grime, garage grease and grime, outdoor soils, used motor oil on clothes, and used motor oil on driveways.
Just say NO! to Pre-treating because as busy moms know “Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That!”
I don’t need to tell you, let me show you
Sometimes the best way to explain whether something works is to show you that it works. Here are a few pictures that show you how well Mean Green gets the job done.

What should you be deep cleaning this spring?
For a quick cleaning, preparation is essential. I say spring clean over the course of 30 days. Choose the month of April as a great month to start spring deep cleaning by doing a little every day until the month is over. I would suggest creating a plan to tackle rooms one week at a time over the course of four weeks. You can start with the bathrooms on the first week. For the first week focus on a thorough cleaning of toilets, sinks, showers, and tubs. Then tackle the bathroom cupboards, doors and drawers. Lastly tackle all the bath mats, rugs, window treatments and shower curtains. Follow this cleaning checklist from Clean Mama to organize your cleaning. You should tackle the entire house up to an including your outside windows, decks, patios and the garage. Here’s a great tip on tackling your grill.
