Keep Toys Clean Scotch-Brite Botanical Disinfecting Wipes Challenge – $100 Toys R Us Gift Card Giveaway

Christmas is coming and you know what that means as parents – toys! Yes we cleared out the old to make room for a few new toys this year and with three children keeping those toys clean is important. It’s just another way that we all stay happy and healthy and so we clean our toys to keep them clean. As a mom who also cares about our environment I need products that will work with my family. I don’t want harsh disinfectants either. I am already using 3M Scotch-Brite™ Botanical Disinfecting Wipes in our home so I was thrilled when they approached me to receive some to review.

3M Scotch-Brite™ Botanical Disinfecting Wipes kill 99.9% of household germs*and cold & flu viruses leaving surfaces like counters, tables and toys residue-free.  Surprisingly, most disinfecting wipes that are used in homes or schools on any non-porous surface, require rinsing after wiping.  However, the “no-rinse” feature found in the Scotch-Brite™ Botanical Disinfecting Wipes provides a safe and effective way to  clean surfaces and toys alike.


We have an exciting giveaway! $100 Toys “R” Us gift card and samples of 3M Scotch-Brite™ Botanical Disinfecting Wipes

    My best cleaning tip is to have a cleaning schedule. With work, family and everyday life it is hard and sometimes overwhelming for me to try and keep up with everything at once. I have found a cleaning schedule that is manageable and easy for me to keep up.

    Mondays- Bedrooms, Sweep & Mop
    Tuesdays- Bathrooms, Vaccum, Trash Day
    Wednesdays- Dining Room & Living Room, Sweep & Mop
    Thursday- Kitchen & Laundry Room, Vaccum
    Friday- Outside, Cars & Garage, Sweep & Mop
    Saturday & Sundays- OFF (Family Time)

    Of course everyday we also do dishes, laundry as needed and a 5 Minute Pickup

    Hope this will help someone else :)

    I wash my windows with vinegar and water in spray bottle and wipe with newspapers. No streaks!
