Win a big Spring clean pack from Astonish

It's that time of the year again - arrival of Spring and we start thinking about Spring cleaning - getting rid of clutter, re-organising, cleaning and tidying things up. Once you are done with Spring cleaning, it feels so great. I feel Spring cleaning is not just about getting your home and surroundings in order and organised but also a way to feel happy and reduce stress as cleaning is very therapeutic.

Spring cleaning is on at our place. I gave the fridge a good scrub over the weekend - cleaned all the shelves, the interior walls and the rubber gaskets on the door. Looks much better and tidier now. The oven is next. Mr.H has been handling the bathroom. The bathtub, the faucets and the shower head all look clean and like new. Mr.H is much more organised than me and he actually made a list of things he needs to get done in the bathroom during the Spring clean. He has cleaned the tiles, the vents and even the light fixtures. Assisting in our Spring clean were products from Astonish. All the products we used were good but special mention goes to the Grout & Tile Restorer and the Oven & Cookware Cleaner. The Grout & Tile Restorer is a foamy formula and very effectively removed dirt and grime even from vertical surfaces. The Oven & Cookware cleaning paste is excellent. With minimal effort I was able to clean the kitchen sink to look like new. A big thumbs up from us.

Turn the microwave on High for several minutes or until the solution boils & the window is steamy, then let it sit to cool for 15 minutes before opening the door. Remove and wipe out the inside & outside with a sponge.

  33. We have hard floors in our downstairs rooms as we have two giant breed dogs who create there own problems with drool etc. My advice is purchase a floor steamer they are relatively cheap, you can even clean carpets,windows,ovens etc.

  121. Give your shower doors a good clean, then wipe on a coat of glass protectant. A good coat of this should protect your glass for around 6 months, depending on how many times the shower is used. Purchase a squeegee and use it to wipe off the water from the door after each shower. If you do this, you will never get soap scum or limescale from water droplets building up on your shower door again, and the only thing you need to do is add on a new coat of protectant every 6 months.
