Owning a home is one of the best feelings ever and is a great accomplishment. I love that I have a place that I can call my own and feel secure in. We have lived in our home for over 8 years now. It was a foreclosure so it needed a lot of work to be done. We gutted the whole entire house and have worked room by room to get it exactly how we want it.
While we finished all major construction, there are always things that need to be completed around the house. Owning a home is a lifelong project no matter if you buy a brand new home or one that has been previously lived in. This time of year, we do a lot of cleaning and refreshing around our house to ensure we’re ready for the warmer weather. Here are six great companies and items were using to refresh our home.
Living in the South means we deal with a lot of bugs, mainly mosquitoes. Those little bugs cause a lot of issues for families since we spend so much time outside. It isn’t fun having to constantly use bug spray to protect ourselves so we called Mosquito Joe to help us with the problem. We had them come out and spray our yard to give us some relief from pesky bugs. I love that their sprays last up to 21 days. Also, if you have them out to spray but notice any mosquitoes during that time, they will come out and give you a free spray. It made me happy knowing they back their effort of getting rid of mosquitoes, fleas and ticks. Because of Mosquito Joe’s we’ve been able to play in the back yard with no issues.

Krud Kutter: Kitchen Degreaser All-Purpose Cleaner & Heavy Duty Cleaner and Disinfectant
With a toddler in the house that is in to everything, I find myself constantly cleaning. Little man is in to everything so I am usually right behind him cleaning up everything that he touches. Every nap time, I’m usually on the move wiping our house down with disinfectant. I needed a product that would kill all bacteria and germs but also be safe for our family. Krud Kutter has done the job beautifully, I never worry about the cleanliness of our household items when I use it.
I also started using the Kitchen Degreaser on our kitchen stove and love the results. Since I cook a large meal every night, our stove tends to get dirty fast. I use the degreaser and all purpose cleaner as often as possible to keep our kitchen as clean as I can. I love that it is on-toxic & safe for food prep surfaces. Learn more about Krud Kutter.
Scrub Daddy: The Scrub Daisy Dishwand System
I must admit that washing the dishes is one of my least favorite chores. After preparing and cooking a meal every night, the last thing I want to do is the dishes. Even though it’s not my favorite, I make sure to still complete the task every night before going the bed so I don’t wake up to a mess the next morning.
Scrubbing my life away is not something I love so I needed a product that would help me get the job done. Let me introduce to you the Scrub Daddy, a daisy dishwand system that will not only make dishwashing fun again but will help you get the job done. This dish wand is ergonomic and comes with three interchangeable cleaning heads ensure the perfect fit for every job. The suction cup Base keeps Scrub Daisy in place at the edge of your sink. Its built-in drain directs excess water into your sink to keep messes minimal. Purchase a Scrub Daddy.
Waterpik: WaterSense Showerhead
One way to instantly upgrade your bathroom is by replacing the shower head. This is one of the first things we did to all of our bathrooms. Not only was this easy it and fairly inexpensive but it made a huge impact on the looks of our bathroom and the way we showered. We used the Waterpik WaterSense Showerhead which are engineered to maximize water flow to produce up to twice as much spray force as other replacement shower heads. I love that these shower heads are so easy to install that you don’t even have to call a plumber! Learn more about Waterpik.
Owning a great pair of scissors is essential for getting household chores completed around the house. We use a few different pairs of Westcott Scissors and have had no issues with any of them. Their carbonitride titanium bonded blades are 8x harder than untreated stainless steel and will stay sharper longer which explains why I never struggle when trying to use them to cut anything needed around the house. It’s amazing how often I’m grabbing scissors to cut paper, tape cardboard, wires and more. I understand why they’re World’s Favorite Scissors.

Since getting pregnant, it seems like my house has been one big mess. We are constantly moving around our rooms, changing offices, putting away outgrown clothes, storing toys and more.
