The Dog Days 'Clean It!' Challenge

I am a total neat freak at heart. The girl who never goes to bed with a dirty kitchen, and never starts the day without making her bed. I can probably blame my Mom for these habits, but that's life.

I typically spend most of my Saturday mornings cleaning bathrooms, wiping surfaces, doing that extra load of laundry, vacuuming and sorting through that week's clutter that has formed piles all over my kitchen table.

Keeping a home clean and presentable is an on-going process. One that is never finished, and to be honest, I am never truly satisfied with the state my home is in. Between our 65 pound lab and a husband who wears muddy boots to work most days, it is hard to keep the cleanliness up to my standards. This is one of the reasons that I am sucker for any and all 'easy' cleaning tips, tools and products. I have tried the many uses of the dryer sheet, and have a cabinet under my kitchen sink that is chock full of spray cleaners. 

In our world, the one that for the next few months, does not contain any children, but does include lots of cooking and very busy schedules, I need items that will help me keep my home clean, disinfected and efficient. 

When I started seeing commercials for the new Windex Touch-Up cleaner, my interest was immediately peaked. They had come up with a small bottle of disinfecting cleaner that is easy (and small enough) to keep out all the time on your kitchen or bathroom counters, and with a swift pump or two, you can easily wipe down surfaces while you're in the room without having to whip out the gloves and Clorox wipes. 

I spent most of last week trying out their citrus scent in my kitchen and powder room on the main level of our house, and I am happy to report that I am pleased with the ease, scent and overall use of the product. I bought my dispenser on sale, but do have plans to hunt another bottle or two down to keep in our other bathrooms. 

This won't take away from the deep clean that I do each week, but Touch-Up is perfect for the day-to-day messes, and for the nightly after dinner cleaning. 

If you're looking for a new, easy way to keep your surfaces clean, I would definitely give this stuff a try! 

Today, I'm linking up for another week of The Dog Days {of Winter} Are Over 'Clean It!' Challenge along with some fabulous other ladies. If you haven't linked up yet, be sure to check out all of the fabulous projects and get inspired to join the party next week!

I was in no way compensated for my review of this product, and the opinions 
expressed in this post are solely my own.

I've been wanting to try this - looks like one of these guys will end up in my cart next time we go to Target. Seems like it would be so convenient to have out on the kitchen counter instead of having to grab the spray every single time!
