As we prepare for the upcoming holidays, we can’t help but look back and reflect on our most memorable. Why? Because we know this holiday will be unlike any we’ve ever known. But when we look to find some commonality, we recognize all of the wonderful years past shared something in common: some sort of mishap or mess! Like the year the Christmas tree fell not once, but twice, into the middle of the living room. Or that time the cat swatted and broke every single ornament hanging on the bottom level of the tree…
Kids, pets, changing seasons plus more time at home working and studying remotely means your house can become mighty messy rather quickly. This doesn't mean you have to spend more time cleaning, though. In fact, with a few tips and tricks, you can reduce your cleaning time significantly so you can sit back and enjoy the results of a tidy, organized space.
Fall cleaning may be the new spring cleaning, at least for 2020. To explain, we have to take a trip back a few months, to March of this year. Any other year, March would mark the kickoff of spring cleaning, but this year, everything changed.
To say a lot of life happens on our floors doesn’t really begin to tell the story of how much our floors witness over the course of our lives. They are the foundation of our homes and the bedrock of our safe space. They get to see so many cute things, like babies learning to crawl and take their first steps, snoozing pups and playful kittens. They also get to see the not-so-cute things, like drool, shedding, mud, spills, accidents, and so much more. All of those memorable and not-so-memorable moments on our floors are exactly the reasons why keeping them clean is so important.
This may not be easy for you to hear, because it definitely wasn’t easy for us to write – deep cleaning in 2020 looks a little different than what you learned from mom all those years ago. Don’t get us wrong, we are in no way saying mom was mistaken. Her tried and true ‘deep clean every 6 months’ rule remains, but as people’s cleaning needs and routines continue to change, so do the cleaning ‘rules’.
Stains are a messy subject, no pun intended. Each and every stain is different and needs to be treated that way.
If there’s one thing we all have in common, it’s the planet on which we live. Every year on April 22, we celebrate the home we share by observing Earth Day. It’s a way for everyone on our planet to show support for the protection and conservation of our environment. At BISSELL, we’re constantly working to improve the environmental impact our products make, and now offer dozens of earth-friendly cleaning products for almost every corner of your home.
We believe pets deserve to feel special all the time, and lucky for them, it’s about to get even more special for our furry friends! April 11 marks National Pet Day – which for us is any day that ends in “y”. And while National Pet Day is all about our four-legged family members, we wanted to take some time to recognize the hard work of you, the pet parents, and give you something that will make caring for your pet (and their messes) easy.
At BISSELL®, we practice “spring cleaning” year-round, but we do up our game a little every year when the actual season arrives. After all these years, we’ve realized something important: not everyone has the same excitement that we do when it comes to spring cleaning. That’s why we created an easy-to-follow 20-day spring cleaning guide.
If you ask any pet parent what a pet adds to life, the first few things they will likely say are joy and companionship, not messes. But as every pet parent knows, a furry companion is bound to have an accident every once and awhile. Luckily, with the right pet stain and odor removal tools on hand, cleaning up those messes is no big deal. Those unexpected pet messes and the inevitable odors are what inspire us every day in our labs. The results are effective stain and odor removal products for pet messes, no matter big or small.
