Holiday Prep with BIZ

Disclosure: I am a brand ambassador for BIZ and have received compensation for today’s post. The opinions are my own.

Many of us dedicate November and December to holiday preparations. This includes decorating, shopping for groceries and gifts, and holiday baking.  Of all the things on our holiday to-do lists, I believe that cleaning is probably the least exciting, but sometimes you have to take the good with the bad!  As I work to clean my home for company coming over, I try to remind myself that it’s all for a good cause.  I remember just how much I enjoy hosting holiday events and how much everyone seems to enjoy themselves, and that makes things seem a little easier.  Another thing that makes the work easier, is having the proper cleaning products and supplies on hand. For our laundry needs, I am happy to have BIZ® as my little helper!

All year I’ve been partnering with BIZ and telling you, my readers, how much I like having this product as part of my laundry routine, and when it comes to holiday prep, there is no exception.  Today I’m going to give you a few examples and tips on how BIZ can assist you with your holiday cleaning and preparations.

Why You Need Biz and Why Biz Works

Biz

As a wife and mom, I like to send my family out in to the world, not only feeling but also looking great.  For me, looking great starts with clothing.  I know that people often get initial impressions of us based on what we are wearing.  Even people we’ve known for a while will take notice when we get dressed up or wear something new.  Whether you’re wearing a dress shirt or an old tshirt, the key is to have on clothing that is bright and clean.  In our house, I achieve this objective with Biz.

Tips and a Printable Checklist for Clean Kitchen

One of my goals for this year has been to change how I clean house.  There have been times in the past, where I’ve walked around my house and literally felt sick, looking around at the mess and all the work that had to be done.  Sometimes things were in a mess, because I’d been too busy with blog and shop work to clean; other times things were in a mess, because I’d been taking on extra big projects around the house (things like decluttering, garage sales, and DIY projects), and still other times things would be in a mess from a lack of cleaning due to migraine or other illnesses.

But as I said, one of my goals for this year has been to change I clean house, and after doing a little research on the topic and putting some new habits in to place, I think I’ve finally found a good formula that works for me.  Today I’m going to discuss one of the most difficult rooms to keep clean: the kitchen.  I’m going to give you some of my tips and a checklist to keep your kitchen clean.  And we’re going to talk about a few products from Scotch-Brite® that will help you maintain a clean kitchen.
