Spring Cleaning: Are You Done Yet? ~Plus~ OUT! Giveaway (4/28)

So I am definitely behind on my Spring Cleaning goals for this month (see previous article here), but I have been making progress which is a step in the right direction. I ended up finding a lovely fridge on clearance last week and now have a spare fridge in the garage for stocking up on frozen items, buying in bulk and freezing items and, lastly, to have extra pantry space in the refrigerated top portion! So that is my excuse for being a good week behind on my 5 week game plan. I’ll just stretch my plan to 6 weeks, adding my new fridge and its organization I tackled last week as Week 3 in my goals. After all, I am not accountable to anyone but myself on these goals so I should be entitled to readjusting timelines, right? 

We have four pets (2 cats and 2 dogs) and the maintenance of our house on top of the 4 people that live here can sometimes be a headache. Every time and everything I clean seems to be undone by someone or something shortly after or I tend to just do the daily maintenance and never feel like I have time to do a deep down cleaning. My dogs have been a pain to potty train and at almost 1 year old they both have frequent accidents when we’re home and have to kennel them when we are out (anyone else own small dogs? *sigh*). I never knew you could go through a whole bottle of cleaner in such a short period of time.
I received the OUT! Oxy-Fast Stain and Odor Remover and OUT! Litter box cleaner to review, and they have both been put to the test, particularly the Stain and Odor Remover. I had actually never used a little box cleaner before and was happy at how much cleaner and fresher the boxes seem. It’s blue color was a little intimidating at first, but then I know that I have wiped down or hosed all of it off which is good.

The Oxy-Fast Stain and Odor remover worked surprisingly well on the stain I tackled (pictured below) a good 8-10 hours after it happened, and I even tried an old stain (days, weeks or possibly months old?) and it came out as well. Very, very pleased :-) Now I just need to get  bottle big enough to spray the entire living room to deodorize it completely! My husband says I’m really sensitive, because he doesn’t smell a lot of the odors I complain about, but I am determined not to be one of those houses you go to and all you smell is dog.
