Gift of Clean for Mom


I’m a mom of two, one of which no longer lives at home, yet we some how see her more than we did when she actually lived at home.  Whether you have a family of 4 or 14 each member has their messes, making it a never ending task of cleaning.  At the end of the day I’m usually so exhausted I just want to lay down, knowing “I can clean {again} tomorrow” lol  yay me!

TidyMom get's the #GiftofClean - her family cleaned the house with the help of Scotch-Brite products for Mother's Day.  Best gift EVER!

Scotch-Brite recently sent me a bucket full of goodies that can help tidy up all around the house.  Want to know how I put it to good use?  When my family kept asking what I wanted for Mother’s Day…….I handed them the bucket of cleaning supplies and told them I would love nothing better than a GIFT OF CLEAN!

I did not want them to hire someone to come clean our house……..I wanted THEM TO CLEAN the house!

So on Mother’s Day, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED…………  

Let me tell you…….. it was the BEST Mother’s Day gift EVER!!  I was able to sit back and relax.  They painted my nails, and fixed dinner while I sat and relaxed in my favorite chair and outside with the dogs. Scotch-Brite was there to ensure I had the best Mother’s Day ever with the Gift of Clean Toilets and showers were scrubbed, dishes were done, counters and table wiped down, furniture was dusted, house was vacuumed, trash emptied, they even lint rolled furniture!

I loved how they all rallied together, dug into the supplies and got busy!  Scotch-Brite was there to ensure I had the best Mother’s Day ever with the Gift of Clean.

Give Mom the gift of clean this Mother's Day! Free printable coupon book + new cleaning supplies

I highly recommend that ALL Mom’s ask for a “Gift of  Clean” at least once a year!

    I would love for someone to clean my windows. My windows are high off the ground and I am terrified to use a ladder to clean the outside of the windows.
