Many of us are looking for ways to start the year off fresh and decluttered. This may be in part because Netflix just released a new binge-worthy show, “Tidying Up” and has made many of us want to completely throw out anything that does not bring us joy. Whether you are also KonMari-ing or just ready to start your spring cleaning a little early, we are here to share the best tips, tricks and things to buy to help you start your 2019 in the best (and cleanest!) way possible.
Pet owners everywhere know the struggle of living with pet hair. No matter how many times you vacuum, it seems to just keep reappearing. The best way to really pull the hair from the depths of your carpet is to use a window squeegee and run it across your carpet and then vacuum up the pile with the hose on your vacuum so as to not push it back into the carpet. Buy one here!
Another way to freshen up your new year is to use lemon to do a variety of cleaning jobs. For example, you can cut a lemon in half, dip it in baking soda and use it to scrub soap scum from the inside of your shower. You can also use the rind to scrub any tough to clean areas. This will also leave your shower smelling fresh and without having to use harsh chemicals.

Organizing is another large part of setting yourself up for a successful year. One of the quickest places to become messy is the bathroom. Target is a great place to find inexpensive containers to tame the chaos.

These containers are only $3 in Bullseye's Playground. They also have galvanized containers for $5 and under that would be great for storage under the cabinets or in your linen closet.
