So Many Ways to Switch Things Up with Viva® Vantage®

Tracking Pixel

There are many aspects to my day. Just like many other mothers I spend my day working, doing homework with my girls, cooking, cleaning and not getting enough sleep. I like to share with you the fun activities that we do and recipes that I love and when the opportunity presents itself, I will also share some of my cleaning tips too. From one mother to another, any and all information is helpful right? Although this post for Viva® Vantage® towels is sponsored, my opinion and all photos, are as always completely my own. Today I'm sharing ways to join the #7DaySwitchUp challenge with Viva® Vantage®.

I have found that as a mom, the busier I get, I try so hard to maintain a routine for everything that I do. The only downfall to that is that it also gets easier for you to get stuck in that routine and not see any better options in front of you. At a blogger brunch last week, I learned about several different ways to use Viva® Vantage® towels to make my life easier. As it is, we use paper towels for


 especially cooking, so I definitely welcomed any and all tips to help me switch up my routine. After using Viva® Vantage® in a few different ways, I was most impressed with the scrubbing power and the stretchy-strength.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to "Switch things up" using Viva® Vantage® towels.

Ditch the colander: 

Save yourself another dish to wash and place your grapes, beans or whatever fruits or veggies that need a rinse on a sheet of Viva® Vantage® to use as a quick strainer. 

Dry your stemware:

 Viva® Vantage® has a cloth-like texture that makes cleaning glass easier because it doesn't leave any streaks or fibers behind, so you don't have to do twice the work.

Replace your scrubber:

 With Viva® Vantage® extra thick scrubbing power, you can clean your mushrooms, potatoes and any other root veggies without a veggie scrubber.

Oh, one more switch up idea: When pouring out of a bottle, wrap a Viva® Vantage® around the neck to help pick up any extra drippings or splatters. It also makes it easier to remember to wipe off the bottle before closing it. I personally hate when the residue builds up under the cap and there is all this gunk left over when you open it the next time.

10 Minute Makeover with some help from Windex and Pledge #InstaClean

I am a busy Mom and I am not shy to admit the cleanliness of my home is always last on my list. Have you ever heard the saying, "The Best Moms have Sticky Floors, Dirty Dishes, Piles of Laundry, and the Happiest kids," or something like that. Well, that is definitely my motto and just as I am comfortable owning my mess, the phone rings or I get a message from a visitor saying they're on their way over. And you know what that means? A mad dash to clean house and time to pull out your handy dandy Windex® and Pledge®.
The 10-minute room makeover usually happens in my living room, the first room you see when entering my home. Also, the easiest to get messy with my daughters backpacks and shoes. My living room is all wood and glass and should be dusted daily, but of course, gets a proper cleaning only a few times a year. 
Every mom has their arsenal of favorite go-to cleaning helpers. For me, there are two products that I need for cleaning. With a big front window, a china cabinet, curio and tons of frames and mirrors, not to mention 4 dirty hands, we definitely need Windex®. 
Oh the wood. Almost every surface in my home is wood, hardwood floors, old antique wood tables, wood on wood on wood. Pledge® makes the wood surfaces in my home so pretty and shiny. Pledge® Lemon Clean can be used to dust, shine and protect a variety of household surfaces including wood, laminate, stainless steel, leather, marble, granite and plastic. Pledge® also features Allergen Trappers® to remove dust and up to 90 percent of the allergens found in dust. Which I love, because, dust definitely makes me itchy. 
Oh and this one is my new favorite! The Pledge® Multi Surface Cleaner removes smudges from wood, laminate, stainless steel, marble, granite, plastic, porcelain, glass, electronics surfaces and even has an antibacterial option and Allergen Trappers®.
The next time you are out doing your grocery shopping at your local Ralphs or Food 4 Less* keep an eye out for the Mega Event for Pledge® going on from 11/10-12/27 and save some money.
