Why do we call the time of year that we declutter, organize, etc. spring cleaning? I call it “all year” cleaning! I finally got a chance to swap out my winter and spring clothes for summer clothes. While doing so, I felt like I was missing a lot of stuff, but most likely I threw out or donated a lot of things after last summer. Does that ever happen to you? You declutter and organize and then forget what happened to things or where you put them?

No matter what time of year it is, cleaning is always in season. Cleaning products play an essential role in our daily lives, whether you buy them from a store or make them yourself.

There’s such a wide variety of cleaning products available in stores today, it’s sometimes hard to choose which ones are the best for your needs. I think most people, like myself, find a few products that work for them and buy those products again and again. But, I do like to try new products from time to time!

What type of cleaning products do you use most often (dusters, sprays, wipes, etc.)? Let me know in the comment section below!
