If you missed our big Christmas Decorations Reveal yesterday, check it out!! I wanted to show you a little behind the scenes of our house when we are in project mode.  So, here is a keepin’ it real post just for YOU! Plus, a SURPRISE GIVEAWAY! 

As you can see, our ceilings are very high in our kitchen, and I am TERRIFIED of heights.  I do my best and believe me, I find myself standing on our plant shelf several times a year, but I literally SHAKE in my boots the entire time. So, luckily I have the best husband in the world that gets up on the tall ladder for me a lot!

cleaning and changing the letters

If you look close in the picture above, you will see that my Thanksgiving mantle is up, but our movie theatre sign was still sporting Halloween! Yep, that’s how we roll around here. I think it was November 20th before we took down the Halloween letters. Don’t judge me.

Before we started decorating for Christmas, we found a lot of disgusting spots that needed a quick wipe, and while we were up on the ladder anyway, we figured it was the perfect time to clean. Do you do this? It’s kind of like moving your couch while you are looking for your remote control and you find a ton of crumbs! I can’t put the couch back until I vacuum it up.

cleaning the kitchen 1

We cleaned the top of our cabinets with Dawn dish soap because it is a degreaser. It works like a charm. Plus, the dust is so greasy that I don’t use a washcloth because it would ruin a washcloth quickly. We used Bounty paper towels so that we could throw them away as we went.

Here’s the trick to get your husband to clean for you: Take pictures of him doing it! That way he pretends like he likes it.  HA! I promise I was helping him clean!! {Or maybe I said, “While you are up there will you clean that too!?!?”

cleaning cabinets in kitchen degreasing kitchen cabinets

After we had wiped off the top of the cabinets, we de-cluttered the kitchen. It lasted for about one day before our kids’ stuff found it’s way back into the kitchen! It’s like shoveling snow while it’s still snowing!

cleaning the kitchen

I think this picture is hilarious! He has the funniest look on his face! But, he showed me what he was looking at, and the top of the fridge was GROSS! I’m too short to see up there, so of course I don’t wipe it off often! Random side note: Aren’t my teapots cute above Dan’s head?!? I got them in Cedar City at my friend Amanda’s boutique called Recycled Consign and Design.

cleaning the top of kitchen cabinets

We love our Swiffer duster, and while we were at it, we used the extension to dust our movie theatre sign.

cleaning with swiffer

Pretty soon the Christmas decoration bins made their début and it was on like Donkey Kong.

during the messy process

I wish I would have taken a picture of the mess when I was making the homemade paper ornaments, it was a DISASTER! They are super easy to make, and I will be posting the tutorial soon!



If you need to freshen the air a bit, Febreze is the best for that! Then after the air was nice and fresh, I plugged in my favorite Scentsy scent called Eskimo Kiss.

I genuinely use all of the products mentioned above, and I am super excited to be hosting a giveaway on their behalf!

Amy said:

Great giveaway! Each of those products are amazing and are put to great use in my house on a regular basis. I have been involved in animal rescue for several years, though currently getting out of the business, but still have a house full of critters! So, multiple animals = the need for lots of cleaning, dusting, and febreeze! And Dawn is my absolute favorite dish soap. Outside of being great for doing dishes, it’s perfect for so many homemade cleaning solutions, and not to mention bathing and de-fleaing rescued kittens and puppies. Plus I love the work that Dawn does with wildlife rescue!
I finally just recently got my finished basement converted into the animal room, with access to the backyard, to keep the main area of my home more animal free. That has been amazing! And it has opened the opportunity to refresh the rest of the house, where just about everything is original 1960 and in serious need of fixing and/or replacing. That $200 gift card would sure help with that! :)

PS- I absolutely love those teapots hanging in your kitchen! Now I’m on the lookout for something similar for myself.


  1. Lisa Brown says

    I need the dust buster for just about every room because I have vertical blinds in every room and they are hard to keep dust free.

  2. says

    I just moved so as I finish getting my place together I’m also prepping for holiday entertaining. The febreeze and scentsy would help to make my place more inviting! Thanks for hosting a great giveaway!

  3. Liz Bates says

    It’s so hard to just choose one area, haha. The kitchen can never be clean enough and I could use all those products in there!

  4. Michelle Carey says

    I have a shelf/ledge that needs to be cleaned off… But like you I’m not fond of heights. So, it doesn’t get done:(

  5. Selma Harris says

    I piggy back on what Wendy N said, these products would be useful in EVERY AREA in our home. We have one dog that SHEDS and dust collects so fast that I can’t keep up. It would be great to have products that help me with the chores and up keep of our home. Thanks for keeping it real with us! Love your blog!!

  6. Missy says

    where to start? the top of my kitchen cabinets? I hadn’t even thought of cleaning up there until I saw you cleaning yours!

  7. says

    I would be lying if I said I would be the one cleaning all the tough spots in my kitchen. My husband is 6’8” so he usually gets voted to clean those tough spots on top of the cabinets, doors, and fridge. We could definitely use all of those products!

  8. Maria A says

    I would use all of those products in my living room. I have a two year old running around and there are finger prints and crumbs every where! Plus dust bunnies are taking over my ceiling fan so that Swiffer thingy would really come in handy!

  9. says

    My mantle is decorated with blue ball jars and (for now) greenery – that Swiffer would be the perfect quick & easy tool to clean the jars! I know the Bounty paper towels & Dawn could do a number on my stovetop, too. Thanks! :)

  10. Angel O. says

    I recently moved into a home with high ceilings and the 360 duster would be super handy for cleaning my ceiling fans and chandeliers! Thank you for the opportunity to enter!

  11. Brooke Adams says

    As a mom too, I could use all the products. Mostly the paper towels. My kids can’t seem to keep their food on their plate.

  12. Rita says

    My whole house could really use it lol. But the laundry room definetely needs it the most. It is a small room and I have not really dusted or cleaned in there since we moved in over a year ago!

  13. Kristen says

    Oh heavens I need these for every room on my house as well as our new house since we are moving right after Christmas!!!! I know super crazy but so excited and that $200 and those cleaning products would come on super handy!

  14. Jaimie N says

    My laundry room (which I’m in the process of re-doing) could use some of these products and surely my ceiling fan (which hangs from a vaulted ceiling in the living area) could use the Swiffer duster for sure! Merry Christmas to you!

  15. Lynn W says

    I think I’ve only cleaned the top of my fridge once in the last 8 years (which is how long we’ve lived here), so the Dawn and Bounty would be first up!

  16. says

    I’d use those products all over my house. I live alone in a huge 5 bedroom house (“housesitting” for 3 years). The house gets cleaned in the main areas when they need it and the other areas? never? ok 3 or 4 times a year. I’d love to win this one!

  17. says

    The product I’d be most excited to get is the duster because I’m allergic to dust and have to keep my room very clean. I don’t have a house to keep clean YET but I’m getting married in six months so this giveaway would be perfect for us :)

  18. Amee says

    Pretty much every room in my home needs these products. I don’t really care to dust. I am now inspired to go wipe down my kitchen cabinets though!

  19. Shawn steward says

    Whole house could benefit from the DAWN, Swiffer, Bounty and Febreeze but my 12 year old ( who has decided building and repurposing is awesome). Would especially love the Home Depot card!

  20. Laurel H says

    With 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 little boys in the house EVERYTHING needs cleaning all the time and the Febreze would sure improve the aroma in the house.

  21. Melyssa says

    I have a sink full of dishes that could use some dawn… and some windows with puppy nose prints that could use some bounty paper towels… and I love a quick spray of febreze to freshen up the air… and a chandelier that could use a good dusting. Yeah. I need to get some cleaning done.

  22. Loretta patzner says

    We moved from KC, Mo to Tampa, FL in October. We current live in apartment as we search for a house. So, our living room and dining room are filled with our boxes. Coffee table – box with table saw in it. LOL. Merry Christmas. I love your open kitchen/living room concept. Blessings.

  23. carrie ruffo says

    Oy, the tops of my cabinets and laundry closet need some attention! 8 months preg, it isn’t happening until after Christmas!

  24. Kellye A says

    I need the duster for all my fans! They’re nasty. And everything else would be awesome in our living room. With 2 dogs & a cat, I feel like it’s never clean in there!

  25. Meg says

    Although all of the cleaning supplies would be a nice have in stock in my clean tote, one can alway use paper towel! I use them for cleaning, spills, crafts, tissues (when a box isn’t around after a sneeze), wrapping paper, packaging padding, napkins, plates, coasters, etc.

  26. Leslie K says

    We live in the country, dirt roads… so there is a constant layer of dust…. so anything that makes that job quicker and easier is a BONUS!!!! like the Swiffer 360! Also I am an avid Dawn dish soap user, but usually the kind that is super gentle on hands :)

  27. Beth says

    My laundry/utility room needs a good ole cleaning. And I swear by those swiffer dusters. We keep our litter boxes in that room too and they work miracles getting up kitty hair. And they make SCENTED dusters!! Awesome!!!

  28. Sarah Y says

    EVERY ROOM. (I can’t be the only one!) We have some major construction dust downstairs, and there’s just no containing it!

  29. Sarah says

    Febreeze! I’m currently pregnant with my second, and for some reason everything smells bad to me :) Febreeze is a big help!!

  30. Bonnie says

    Laundry/utility room, which is a very small space crammed with the inner workings of the house. It’s hard work getting behind and around the furnace, hot water heater, water pressure tank, washer, dryer and salt tank all in a room that is about 5X10. But it is my mission.

  31. Maureen says

    Basically all rooms in my home but really the kitchen and the master bedroom . I have allergies and I am trying to keep a dust free house –not going too well. The humidifiers going spew out dust particles too. The duster kit would be a big help.

  32. Lisa says

    The Swiffer duster would be so helpful getting those hard-to-reach places! I wonder if I offered to take pictures of my husband if he’d clean for me too? Probably not! :)

  33. says

    My plant shelves need to be cleaned like you guys did! Usually I put Christmas decorations up there, but I didn’t want the hassle this year, so the cleaning is not getting done like it would normally in November and then January when I put the stuff back up!

  34. Bri says

    First off, I love this post & love seeing the behind the scenes shots!! Your blog is one of my favs!! :)
    I use all of those products religiously – Bounty is the BEST in my book. Can’t live without Febreeze! Use my Swiffer all the time for our ceiling fans and Dawn is my fav dish soap! Right now my house could really use a good dusting and some sprays of Febreeze in the living room :) Happy holidays from our family to yours!! <3

  35. Jamie says

    I’d use all of these products to keep our new home clean – especially the swiffer to reach in the tight corners and keep the dust off the ceiling fans!

  36. Megan says

    I could use dawn to do the neverending pile of dishes my family accumulates, hello can we drink from the same glass more than once???
    I could use the swiffers to clean up dustbunnies I am strategically hiding beneath my couch, oopsy.
    I could use the papertowels to clean up the 1,233,989 messes I clean up a day between a man, three children, one cat and one dog. :)
    I could use the $200 to put up the new kitchen blacksplash I’ve been dying to do, but enevitably something else always requires that moola!
    PLEASE CHOOSE ME! :) :) :)

  37. Tara L Polk says

    Where to start? I would use the dawn dish soap for my husband’s work clothes. He works in the gas industry and his overalls can get oil on them and Dawn is about the best thing to help cut that oil right out. The febrile is great for around the house to freshen it up. I usually use this before guests come over. The duster I could so use for my ceiling fans and above all my doors and the hard to reach areas. The bounty for all of my kids messes, because with small children, there are many it seems. Lastly, the Home Depot gift Card, I would purchase primer and paint because we have a lot of painting to do. Thanks.

  38. Jill B. says

    I am in need of ALL those products, but I could especially use the Febreze Air Effects to neutralize the smell of my toddler and dog that overrun my house. Thanks!

  39. Uta says

    I need some febreeze in my bathrooms! Pee-yuu! I also wanted to say that you are very lucky that your husband participates in all your activities. I couldn’t get my husband to help me clean or decorate to save my life!! Way to go Dan. Love your posts!!

  40. Melissa says

    What area of my home needs these products . . . HA! The works. But I am particularly interested in degreasing the tops of my cabinets. I haven’t climbed up there for a while.

  41. Merryl says

    ALL rooms needs these. I am ADDICTED to Febreze Air Effects! I use it everyday and everywhere. All the other products simply make my life easier, but the Febreze is like the icing on the cake!

  42. Carole H says

    Like most people. The laundry room needs it the most. Love your kitchen how tall it is. Our cupboards are like that also and I usually put my collection of nut crackers up there.

  43. Michelle Carter says

    I have these ledges that are built in about 12 feet off the ground so the Swiffer would be so great to help clean the decor up there.

  44. Swan says

    4 kids, 9 cats. ‘Nuff said about that.

    Thanks for your blog, Brooke. Receive so much inspiration all the time. Will be attempting your color washing technique this week on a Christmas gift. Pray for me? ~~Swan

  45. Karen H. says

    I could really use these products! Actually I do use most of them! I have 3 dogs and family in and out all day so the cleaning products are all great! With the gift card I would buy the Miter saw I have been keeping my eye on at Home Depot!

    Great giveaway! Thank you!

  46. Kimberly Holman says

    Could use these products all over my house, but my living room could use some extra tender loving care at the moment.

  47. says

    Kitchen. Seriously, it’s like we have a herd of toddlers instead of two child-free adults using that space. So. Messy. (But dang, The Husband can COOK so I’ll forgive the mess.)

  48. says

    The master bedroom for sure! It has become kind of a dumping ground for stuff and not very pretty!! Thank you SO much for a great giveaway- xo

  49. Hannah says

    I would need these products in every room because of my cat. He sheds everywhere and I haven’t found anything other than swiffer that picks up all his fur. I always clean right before my friend who is allergic comes over and she loves that she can come over and not fear sneezing everywhere

  50. Amy Dow says

    Those are some of my favorite products! I could use them all over…and my least favorite thing to clean would have to be light fixtures!!! Bathroom fixtures, hallway fixtures…etc.

  51. Brooke Scott says

    My kitchen! always needs it. And I really need a new oven, one that doesn’t wobble and heats correctly. And of course I need to clean behind there.

  52. Natasha J says

    this would be helpful for when we move soon and everything needs to be deep cleaned…and the gift card would be amazing for loading up on some tools to help give craiglist finds a new life for when we have a little more space (hopefully)

  53. Beth D says

    I can use those products everywhere, but what I really want is that husband who uses them! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  54. Susan says

    Where DON’T I need to use these products?LOL We have lots of high ceilings and since I love my Swiffer floor mop, I would really like one of their 360 dusters for fans and light fixtures. We have four boys (three are still in the house) so I could go through Febreze pretty quickly, and don’t get me started on the Bounty. I never seem to have enough paper towels. Thanks for the giveaway!

  55. says

    is it sad to say that our whole condo especially our living room needs all of those products? We moved in(we are renting) ,and I don’t know if the previous owner cleaned once in YEARS. We are still trying to deep clean.

  56. says

    I already use Bounty, Swiffer Duster and Dawn on a daily basis in my home. Today I just bought the Febreze Air Effects because our basement, where we exercise, smelled a little off. I loved how it made the basement smell so fresh!

  57. Catherine says

    I just moved across country to a new apartment and would love to deep clean before having my stuff delivered via movers so these would be perfect!

  58. says

    Oh my goodness would this be good timing to win, we need a new oven and $200 would help ever so much! Of course I’d love to use all of the amazing cleaning products in the kitchen, but I know they would be perfectly useful all over the house too! :)

  59. Karen Jerread says

    I need all of this especially for my kitchen. No matter how much Irun the exhaust fan, greasy debris gets on everything.

  60. Emily says

    I love all those products!! The dusters are amazing! I’d use that I clean my fan blades! I’m so glad you mentioned the teapots because I totally noticed and they are adorable!

  61. Amy says

    My kitchen! Our house is from the 1920s, and unfortunately everything is original. That room has been collecting grime for almost 100 years. I need the Swiffer dusters to get the top of the doorways and cabinets. There’s no telling what it looks like up there! Thank you. :)

  62. Lori says

    I could definitely use the Febreze (and everything else as well, lol) in my craft room, because that’s where the cat’s litter box also is!

  63. michelle moon says

    I use most of these already, in Every room. With a Husband, 14 yr old twins, 2 dogs and a cat, I can never have to much to clean with.

  64. Lora W. says

    I have two teenage boys. We use febreze all the time. We need it for their rooms, along with the swiffer dusters. I am fairly certain there are dishes in there, too, with dried on food. Dawn is the only dish detergent that will help.

  65. Amanda says

    We just moved and now have high ceilings – the swiffer would be really helpful to get up into those corners that need dusting!

  66. Kristin y says

    I would use that to help my brother in law get the hint about the bathroom he uses down stairs and his bedroom!!!

  67. B Jones says

    The Home Depot gift card would be wonderful so I could buy an impact drill to do the projects for my booth.
    The air effects for my son’s bathroom (LOL) and all around freshness for the home.
    The Bounty & Dawn for cleaning/de-greasing our kitchen as well.
    The 360 duster for those hard to reach places (i.e. – tops of ceiling fans).
    Thank you for the give-away opportunity!

  68. B Jones says

    The Home Depot gift card would be wonderful to purchase an impact driver to do my projects for my booth.
    The air effects for our son’s bathroom (LOL) and all around freshness for the home.
    The 360 duster for those hard-to-reach places.
    The Bounty and Dawn for cleaning/degreasing our kitchen as well.
    Thank you for the give-away opportunity!

  69. dana schoppe says

    All of the above…. plus a person to clean it all…. 😉
    The swiffer would get the top of the bird aviary &above the cabinets to keep my clutzy feet on the ground

  70. Diana in Vegas says

    Since moving to Vegas from the east coast I’ve noticed a LOT more dust. I’ve wanted to give those Swiffer dusters a try. Also, I love my husband dearly but that man is like having triplet boys to clean up after! I can sure use those cleaning supplies and of course, the Home Depot gift card (my FAV store).

  71. Melinda Haiden says

    I use bounty paper towels! It may sound odd how I use them but it is a life saver when it’s time to clean out the fridge. What I do is take the paper towels lay them in the drawers of my fridge and under the drawers and if anything spills it is cleaned up rather easy. Having kids that r six and five this saves me lots n lots of cleaning time in my fridge. I clean it out every two weeks unless it needs it badly. So I could use plenty more bounty as we go through them like crazy in my house! Thank u for this give away! It’s an amazing one as I’m trying to redo my kitchen!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Btw love your crafty decor ideas! So inspirational.

  72. says

    I could use all of them (dawn, swifter, bounty and febreze in the playroom,could also use some organization from home depot, thanks for a chance to win!!!

  73. Andrea Elkins says

    We could really use these supplies for our masterbedroom and on suite. For some reason these two rooms collect so much dust when the rest of the house remains relatively dust free. We clean the dust off those two rooms but it just builds up right after :(

  74. Kirsten T. says

    I need these for just about every room in my house but by living room needs it the most. It seems to be the place our dogs prefer to hang out so it is always covered in dog hair and dirt.

  75. Jenn Clubb says

    Like you I don’t do heights! So the swifter would work great for my ceiling fans so I don’t have to climb up so high! The febreze would work wonders on my husbands stinky police gear! That big black tactical bag could clear a room!! I use dawn dish soap for my dishes and for stains on my girls clothes! Works great!! And ofcourse the $200 gift card would be amazing to us new homeowners!! Whoop whoop

  76. Sarah Christensen says

    I could have used the Fabreeze Air Effects today when I accidentally burned some cheese in my oven! My entire upstairs still stinks! The Swiffer duster would be nice too clean my high ceiling fans too!

  77. Katie Newton says

    I LOVE bounty paper towels …and I use a LOT of them to clean all of my leaded glass windows in my house. I did use the dawn soap trick to get the grease spots off the window above the kitchen window! It works!!

  78. Kara Burns says

    I would use the dawn in my kitchen too. I never thought about above the fridge but I am sure it’s horrible. I would love to use the swifer and dust my ceiling fans. I hate getting on a chair to do that! Amazing products!

  79. Amy Bounds says

    Thanks for the great tip to dust those high places with Dawn. I am going to try that next time I attempt to clean my high hidden areas too! Thanks.

  80. Linda Carson says

    I’m going out on a limb here and say every room in my house could use at least one of these products! I like the Swiffer for baseboards and ceiling fans. Dawn is one of my favorites as well as Bounty!

  81. Alma Rollins says

    i too could use a good cleaning on the high spots that get neglected on the normal daily /weekly chores. However, we are about to have an unexpected bathroom remodel done because of a shower leak (not covered by insurance) . Since we are about to have a jack hammer in to take out the master shower, I am sure that every inch of my house will need a good cleaning once the contractor gets done. HELP

  82. Tiffany Barnard says

    Having a familly of 5 I could use everything all over my house! Anything that can help me clean up easier after 3 children would be great! I would love love love a home depot gift card! I would love to be able to do more projects! I love making and fixing things up!

  83. Amy says

    Great giveaway! Each of those products are amazing and are put to great use in my house on a regular basis. I have been involved in animal rescue for several years, though currently getting out of the business, but still have a house full of critters! So, multiple animals = the need for lots of cleaning, dusting, and febreeze! And Dawn is my absolute favorite dish soap. Outside of being great for doing dishes, it’s perfect for so many homemade cleaning solutions, and not to mention bathing and de-fleaing rescued kittens and puppies. Plus I love the work that Dawn does with wildlife rescue!
    I finally just recently got my finished basement converted into the animal room, with access to the backyard, to keep the main area of my home more animal free. That has been amazing! And it has opened the opportunity to refresh the rest of the house, where just about everything is original 1960 and in serious need of fixing and/or replacing. That $200 gift card would sure help with that! :)

    PS- I absolutely love those teapots hanging in your kitchen! Now I’m on the lookout for something similar for myself.

  84. Michele says

    Could use Home Depot card to finish my kitchen.My ex left with job half done,has been two years unfinished. I love to cook and bake,but this kitchen is too depressing.Could use other stuff to clean it after it’s done! :-)

  86. Noelle says

    We need that Home Depot gift card because we just bought a brand new house and they didn’t install hand towel racks and its driving me crazy!! :)

  87. Stephanie Gossett says

    I need all of these products. I have four little ones and the paper towels and febreze. I also LOVE the pictures of your home. You are very blessed. Thank you so much for the chance to win this. It would be a dream come true for my family. Thank you for hosting. Best of luck to everyone!

  88. Rachel says

    Oh boy, I could use a great duster! My blinds are always filthy! I live in the desert and it’s really windy here. In the spring and fall, and evenings in the summer, we open our windows, to keep cool, so we don’t have to use our AC. Well, after a while, I look at my white blinds and realize they’re covered in dusty dirt! It’s so gross and the blinds are such a hassle to clean.

  89. arlene e says

    I need those products in our playroom basement because we have a ton of storage stuff for toys plus the furniture there and it gets so dusty. Also, the kitchen blinds are pretty dirty! And the gift card would be awesome for our kitchen where we need to replace the floors that are coming up!

  90. Cindy Brooks says

    I could use these products everywhere…especially the kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms (in that order!)
    someluckydog at gmail dot com

  91. Tracy W says

    Im converting my office/workout room into a playroom for my in home daycare. It needs a cleaning from ceiling to dustboards before I can let little ones play and crawl around.

  92. samantha says

    I have a house with four kids and a husband, plus I am a full time nursing student. I could use a gift card to fix up some of the projects that have been started in our home. Or even the dawn, (the dishes that are created in my house is crazy). The duster would be nice (kids that are allergic to dust that gets spread around from the ceiling fans. Or even the febreze (There are four boys in my house, I’m sure you can imagine what that smells like.) And who doesn’t need paper towels?! lol I guess the answer to where in my house…would be EVERYWHERE. lol

  93. Mollie Uselman says

    Recently took a layer off the top of the fridge. Are you supposed to do that more than every year or two? Maybe I should keep it spruced up with the Swiffer until next big clean :)

  94. linda says

    Its a toss up between the Swiffer and fabreeze! I love them both and I have lots of dust and three animals so I use fabreeze a lot!

  95. Cindy Meisenheimer says

    I hate to admit it my kitchen cupboards sure could use the dawn and paper towels for degreasing. The Swiffer duster and Febreeze I would use in every room. Now that Home Depot giftcard sure would help out with all the paint that I am buying to redo our whole house! What a great giveaway for some lucky winner! Thank you for all that you do.

  96. Pam Spradlin says

    I will go with the kitchen…I am also too short to see the top of the fridge so that does not get cleaned like the rest of the kitchen. My mil once told me it was dirty…she is 6’2″…so I handed her a rag to clean it. She has never mentioned it to me again but that comment made me more aware of those areas short people can’t see.

  97. Kathleen says

    I need a duster for the tv stand in the living room. It’s one with black glass (my bf’s) and its constantly dusty! Drives me nuts!

  98. Kathleen Welch says

    I need to clean the tops of my kitchen cabinets too! I have a collection of the blue Ball canning jars and other vintage kitchen accessories on the tops of my cabinets and they get dusty and sticky over time. Once the Christmas decorations come down I am going to give the whole house a good deep clean, the Dawn and Bounty would sure help out . Thanks !

  99. Jamie says

    We are closing on a new house on the 27th, We could use these products in the house we are moving from and the house we are moving to. We could use the swifer supplies to tackle all those dust bunnies we will find when we are moving our furniture and we could use the dawn to wash up all the knickknacks and such we have around the house. I love dawn dish soap. We could use the Home Depot card to buy a ladder so my wonderful husband can clean the top of the cabinets. I am also scared of heights. 😉 . Oh I can think of so many uses tor these supplies. Thank you for your consideration and this wonderful site.

  100. Jaclyn says

    My hubby and I just bought our first home and our bathrooms need severe help!! This would be so helpful!! Thank you for the opportunity! Happy holidays!

  101. Kristen Schaeffer says

    We’ve been fixing up the house to get ready to put it on the market. With all the spackling, sanding, painting, etc. my house could sure use a good cleaning. These products would be very helpful in getting my house ready to put on the market!

  102. gerlinde godkin says

    I could use the products all over the house, especially the kitchen and bathroom! I use Dawn a lot, it’s so versatile, not only in the kitchen, but when treating stains on clothes or the cleaning the bathroom!

  103. says

    Actually all of the products could come in handy for my home! The swifter dusters would be also great since I have blinds on the second story of my home.

  104. Holly Martinez says

    My whole house could use some cleaning love. But I think my master bath because we’re in the middle of a remodel and it gets dirty quick!!!

  105. Christy Lloyd says

    Being a smoker I could really use Febreeze in all rooms and with a golden retriever the Swiffer is great for picking up hair

  106. Kim whitehead says

    To me, Dawn is one of the most versatile cleaners, way beyond just washing dishes. I can use it to wash the dogs, in the power washer to clean the deck and on the tough spots on the carpet, which all need to be done before Christmas.

  107. Cindy says

    Oh, definitely the living area where the dog (great dane) spends all of his time. He has his own love seat and it could stand some major febrezing.

  108. Vanessa says

    I have a dog and two cats inside my house so where in my house so I NOT need these products?! It’s a daily battle with these three. Thanks for all your inspiration and giveaways. I love you!!!! :)

  109. Cindy Trobaugh says

    Hi..Just finishing a remodel and the Swifter for the our new wood floors…I use all these products and they would all be useful! Thanks.

  110. christy koontz says

    I can use these products in every room of my house. I have three kids and two dogs to clean up after so you can imagine how useful the $200 gift card wold be to my family.

  111. victoria says

    i usually do the house work myself, my hubby never lends me a helping hand. I need a great duster as my house quickly fills up with a dust.

  112. Savannah G says

    The swiffer – I have high ceilings and LOVE the long handled one so that don’t have to get up on the ladder too!

  113. Robin Barker says

    Definitely my kitchen! I’m not sure I have ever moved my fridge to clean under it and the top of my cabinets get no love either!

  114. Kim England says

    My kitchen & living room are one open room. Between the wood burning fireplace, three dogs, & three teenagers, I could use all of the products mentioned!

  115. Stephanie P. says

    Okay, I admit it… I’m not the best at keeping things clean… I was scrolling through your pictures where you mentioned things in your kitchen were gross and thinking to myself… OMG! I don’t even want to look at the tops of my cabinets and there’s so much stuff on top of my fridge… well, you get the picture! So, I would have to say the biggest mess I have to deep clean is my kitchen and I need all the help I can get! :)

  116. says

    As an art student, I’m ALWAYS going to Home Depot to buy canvas-making materials and other sculptural objects! Not to mention constantly having to clean up after all of the art disasters haha.

  117. says

    My kitchen is a mess and with only 6 days before people start arriving my daughter has now started throwing up – yippee – I seriously need these cleaning products for my kitchen and bathroom

  118. Karen K says

    the $200 Home Depot card — would buy us a couple of updated ceiling fan/lights, one for the kitchen and one for our bedroom! Our fans are probably as old as the house…about 30 years! ha! love Home Depot!

    Bounty — good paper towells for the kitchen! Swiffer dusters would be handy to clean those new ceiling fans! :) Dawn comes in handy for lots of things…best and only kind of dishwashing liquid I like to buy. Febreeze would likely get used most often in the main bathroom!


  119. PPlank says

    Just like you – the top of the frig doesn’t get cleaned very often. I love using Dawn for all my kitchen cleaning and it is easy on my hands.

  120. Michelle from Iowa says

    I already use all those great products- esp the Febreeze, with 4 animals in the house, and could use the Home Depot card for decorating a new house we plan to buy in a few months!

  121. Brandy Chavarria says

    Ummmm… everywhere in my house! If I had to choose one room, I guess I would choose the kitchen. My house is 65 years old and the kitchen could really use some help!

  122. Lisa Kubin says

    I love that your hubby posed for all the pictures and helped with the heights cleaning!! I could use any help with my dust infested house! Dust is everywhere and no matter how often I clean dust piles up! Plus I love Dawn in my kitchen it really works and makes many jobs easier!

  124. Julie Hatch says

    Well, my Christmas wish is that the Wyoming wind would stop! With wood floors, fans and internment centers.. I am constantly dusting! I sweep, mop and sweep again. There is no end to the dust. So, my wish is of course ‘peace on earth’ and no more dust!

  125. Susie says

    Oh boy. You have me thinking about my kitchen cabinets and plant shelves. Now I’m scared! Ha ha! These are all stellar products any room in my house would certainly thank me for using! Great Giveaway!

  126. Caro says

    The Bounty and Dawn for my kitchen…that greasy grime keeps building up everywhere, and we don’t have a hood to suck it all away outside!

  127. Desiree Lynden says

    Our basement flooded and everything that survived is stacked in the garage and several upstairs rooms making it quite difficult to get ready for Christmas. We lost our Christmas trees and most of our seasonal decorations due to mold. We could use the home depot gift card to make some necessary repairs and replace our holiday decorations.

  128. Allyson Post says

    We are moving out of our apartment, and into our first home- so we are going to need everything to clean out one and to move into the other!!

  129. Trish says

    It would be a shorter list to tell you where I don’t need them!! Like you, I find these areas when I rearrange and decorate for the holidays! BTW, I wish my hubby looked so happy to be cleaning 😉

  130. Alyse says

    With a crazy 18 month old, an indoor-outdoor dog, two shedding cats, husband and myself, we have serious house cleaning needs EVERY day. I have paper towels and febreeze on hands at all times.

  131. teresa C says

    Every single room in my house! I use all these products, although I just use regular Swiffer dusters (don’t have the 360). With three boys, a husband, a dog and our two new kitties, I couldn’t live without this stuff!

    PS. Dawn has about a billion uses besides just dish washing :)

  132. Phyllis Bell says

    Merry Christmas! I can use all of the products in my newly renovated bathroom….and I can also use the Gift Card to help out with all the inspirations I get from your wonderful page! i Love <3 ''ALL THINGS THRIFTY'' <3

  133. Ashley Veach says

    The gift card would go towards getting the nursery set up for our baby on the way. The rest of the products would be used everywhere!! With two dogs and two cats, this place sure gets messy!!

  134. Ashlee says

    I haven’t cleaned above my eye level in the kitchen since we moved in..2 years ago:) and I’m 5’3″ so eye level isn’t very tall:)

  135. maria says

    Love the febreeze, I have pets so for all over the, house. Duster for the ceiling fans, liquid soap for kitchen for sure, and bounty to clean everything! kitchen, bathrooms, I really cant think of a place I wouldnt us the bounty. Thanks !!!!

  136. Sue DeChant says

    I’m a little on the short side so anything – like the Swiffer – that can reach the places I can’t see (tops of cabinets, window and doors, refrigerator) would be awesome! I use Dawn all the time and it is so good at anything greasy and is great to use in some homemade cleaners. I’d love to try the Febreeze Air Effects because I’m not familiar with it. And of course, with too many fix-em-up project in progress, $200 at Home Depot would be heaven!!

  137. Tracy says

    I’ve been using Dawn in a concoction for my son’s white undershirts and polo shirts of all colors. I mix Dawn, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide using an extra soft toothbrush to put it on the shirts then it sits a while on his underarm stains…it does an amazing job!

  138. Debbie Percelay says

    I’d love to move the washer/dryer over a few feet in the garage and make a great laundry area… Thanks for the opportunity to win a Home Depot gift card!

  139. says

    Apparently they didn’t install bathroom fans into houses in the 40’s, so we are well acquainted with Febreeze air freshener. That stuff rocks.

  140. Jessica says

    I would love this for all my ceiling fans and our covered porch – it seems to collect dust faster than I can clean it!

  141. says

    first question: is there any place that does NOT need these products?

    but, really…the bathroom. i am just too lazy to clean it and i hate getting new cleaning stuff…but winning it would be amaaaazzziiiiing. :)

  142. Jenni says

    I’d use all that in my kitchen and upstairs living room! Fresh coat of paint, clean floors and everything dust free, it will look shiny and brand new again!!

  143. Kathryn says

    Kitchen. Actually everywhere. We are just moving into a new home and will be doing a lot of cleaning! Also, the gift card would purchase some great new items for our home, since we are doing a complete remodel of the inside!!!

  144. Megan says

    I could really use all of these in my kitchen. Just like shaving your legs makes hair grow back faster, each time I clean my kitchen it takes less time to get dirty again!

  145. says

    My kitchen will be the spot best helped by these products! Your post inspired me to climb up above my counters and check out the situation up there. Greasy dust begone with the Dawn and Bounty Paper Towels. The plantation shutters over my kitchen sink will be helped by the Swiffer Duster as well. Our puppy, Flaps, is no match for how great Febreeze works! This is an awesome Giveaway!!

  146. Jenn M says

    My husband won’t like me saying this, so let’s not tell him! Our bedroom could use some of that Febreeze! He’s set up the corner of the room as his little man cave, and he sits in the dark with his iPad when he needs to hide from me and our girls. Now my whole bedroom smells like…. boy. And speaking of the girls, we ALWAYS need more Bounty paper towels!

  147. Julie W says

    Oh geez, I don’t think we’ve really cleaned the stuff on top of the kitchen cabinets since we moved in over a year ago. I shudder to think of what might be lurking up there right now.

    Besides, I live with 3 dirty little boys and a big dude who all bring gross smells and unidentifiable substances into the house – there isn’t a thing on your list I wouldn’t be using!

  148. Phoebe says

    Most definitely the kitchen! You’ve reminded me that I haven’t looked on top of our cabinets since we moved in!!! (2.5 years ago…) ew.

  149. Susan Krauss says

    OMG! The top of my fridge needs some serious attention as well as the pot shelf in my living room. These products sure would help accomplish those tasks!

  150. Hannah says

    I really have been unable to keep the top of my fridge clean. I swear its my everest. Funny thing is I’m five foot nothing and can’t see it unless I’m up on a ladder but the idea of the dinge and dust haunts my dreams:) what a great giveaway!

  151. Sara says

    Our “pantry” needs cleaning like polar bears need snow. There are no doors on it and my younget likes to explore. I’m pretty sure I’ll get home tonight to a trail of flour leading somewhere.

  152. Melissa L. says

    I could really use all of the cleaning products for my livingroom. It could really use a dust and shine! And the gift card would be great to get things fixed up in here! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  153. Carol Machovec says

    Living with 3 Golden Retrievers, I would be kidding myself if I ever thought my home was “really” clean all at one time. I’m always in the cleaning mode around here. If it’s not dusting those fan blades high over head or wiping up the spilled water bowl on the floor from over active pups, while I’m trying to keep the doggy smell out of my home. But I do love my girls!

  154. Cali Levine says

    I could use the febreeze and swiffer dusters in my whole house! I could really, really use the Home Depot gift card to do faux brick around my fireplace! Inspired by you! Our FP is so plain jane (just regular old sheet rock) and I have been trying to find something to spruce it up and just saw your brick above your plant shelf and I think you have solved my problem! Next problem is convincing my hubby…that gift card would help!
