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.

Our favorite month of the year is here! There are so many things we love about October, but hands down the best part is that it’s Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. Adopting pets from shelters is something we at BISSELL and our friends at BISSELL Pet Foundation® (BPF) are passionate about.

Labor Day traditions look different for all families. Some like to spend the long weekend at the lake, while others like to use the extra time to clean their carpets and get their house in order before the new season begins. No matter when you plan to tackle fall carpet cleaning, we’ve got you covered with these expert tips.

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’.

Memorial Day cleaning is now on most of our minds, so we compiled our top Memorial Day cleaning tips. However, knowing that wasn’t enough for a complete summer cleaning guide, we tossed in our favorite general summer cleaning tips, too.

When it comes to cleaning bathrooms, you could say it’s our least favorite household chore. If we had to describe it in a single word, we’d use disgusting. No matter how often we clean our bathrooms, we’re always dreading the next time we have to clean them. Sure, sometimes it’s the mess that bothers us. But that’s not our biggest complaint. It’s more the process of bathroom cleaning and all the different bathroom cleaning supplies and steps that go into it.

You see them every day, but chances are you only notice them when they’re dirty. We’re talking about your baseboards. They’re on nearly every wall, in every room of your home. So, you’ve probably wondered how to clean white baseboards, or really any color baseboards, at least once in your life. It’s something we’ve addressed for you in this guide.

BISSELL’s carpet cleaning formulas are pet safe! It sounds like you already have a BISSELL carpet cleaner that you love, so now you just need to choose the cleaning formula best for the job. I’d recommend using the 2X Professional Odor Control Formula because it removes mold, mildew, pet or food stains and any strong odors, including pet odors. It is safe for all full size deep cleaners and most importantly, it’s “lick safe” for your papillon!

It should come as no surprise to you that I frequently talk about pets and clean up here in the BISSELL Pet Community! After all, pets cause messes, and BISSELL is all about clean. Plus, BISSELL is truly a pack of pet lovers (more than 70 percent of employees have pets)!

When the weather warms and spring rolls in, many of us get the urge to roll up our sleeves, don a pair of rubber gloves, grab the cleaning supplies and get to work cleaning those hard-to-reach places we ignore the rest of the year. The messes pet owners have to contend with come spring — shedding, muddy paw prints on furniture and ground-in dirt in carpets and rugs — require extra effort and to make every nook and cranny gleam.
