I don’t get bouquets of flowers for no reason…. But I do appreciate the flowers that grow by our mailbox, like this one. And it made me realize something this morning.  I’m over it. 
I’m over comparing my life to other people’s lives on social media.
My house might not be as fancy. 
My wardrobe is not as expensive. 
I don't apply makeup as well or even at all most days.
I don’t have beautiful, long flowing hair.
I don’t drive a car that’s worth bragging about. 
We don’t go on lavish trips around the world. 
I don’t carry loads of money in designer handbags. 
Does that make me less of a person? 
Does that make me less of an influencer? 
No. It makes me a regular 40-something Mom who has chosen to open up and share our lives on social media.  It makes me someone who has built this hobby of photography and writing into a business that has solely supported my family for a year and a half. 
I’m proud of that. 
I’m proud that I’m not a follower.
I’m proud that I have worked hard for what I’ve achieved.
I’m proud of influencers like me who are unapologetically themselves.  What are you proud of? .

It was just after Iyla's third birthday. She seemed to be on track, at least according to the pediatrician's checklist. She could follow instructions, name most familiar things, knew her first name, spoke in sentences and could carry a conversation, though she was hard to understand most of the time. We enrolled her in preschool that year and she was a little social butterfly. But as that school year went on, her teachers started to notice that she was struggling to get her words out. Most people that know Iyla today, have no idea that she was in speech therapy classes for two years. They have no idea that I fought it for almost 6 months and that I felt a tremendous guilt about it, because I thought it was my fault that she was stuttering as badly as she was. Today on the blog, I’m sharing the mistakes I made, in hopes that if you are ever in this situation, you take advantage of early intervention. .

There are two types of kids. 1) The kid who wants to eat the same thing every single day of the week, sometimes more than one time per day and 2) The kid who loves something one day and then hates it the next. #ad Which type of kid do you have?

We always pack the essentials when we're heading out in this Florida heat, including snacks, sunblock and @smartwater, because we know how important it is to stay hydrated. We love smartwater® because it's purified water made using vapor distillation, similar to the way water is purified in nature. It's available in 700mL and 1L bottles.

Almost F O U R T E E N. Where did the time go? I blinked and she’s this beautiful, little lady. She’s so smart, so talented and although she has her teenage girl moments, she is the best first born I could have ever asked for.

How I Got My Kids to Clean the House

If You Love It, Share It!

If there’s one thing I can count on, it’s my kids to make a mess.  A big mess.  Give them one toy and 5 minutes alone and they can leave the house looking like a tornado just swept through.  It’s astonishing. There are finger prints everywhere, some sort of juice on the floor and that one toy has somehow turned into 20 different pieces, one of which I will step on at least twice before they finally pick it up.  And while I love my girls with all of my heart and soul, I have reached my breaking point when it comes to the lack of cleanliness in our home.

Over the last 12+ years, I’ve tried just about everything.  I bought them the little play broom and vacuum.  I started a chore chart. I paid for an app that reminds them to clean and gives them stars for each chore completed.  We’ve asked nicely, begged and even yelled at them and nothing seemed to work… until now. I’m excited to share how I got my kids to clean the house!

I was on Instagram last month and saw a post with this beautiful blue spray bottle from Cleaning Essentials.  It intrigued me enough that I went to the website to find out what it was filled with.  Turns out, it was empty, but what would be inside would change the way my kids looked at cleaning.

When it came to the products we use to clean, I’ve always made sure to keep them out of reach of my kids.  If it’s something that would come in direct contact with their skin, they had to either wear gloves or not use that product at all.  I’ve heard all sorts of things about the dangerous chemicals and would never put my kids in harms way, no matter how dirty the house became.

I’ve always wanted to try and make my own cleaning products but I never knew which ingredients or how many to use. Cleaning Essentials actually takes the guessing out of the equation and makes it easy for you to mix the perfect solution using everyday items that you probably already have in your cabinets at home.

Each bottle lists the type(s) of cleaner you can make in that particular bottle and includes fill lines and instructions.  It’s so easy a kid could do it (with parental supervision, of course).  The more I read, the more I wanted to try them out.  I knew almost immediately that if I could make this fun, my kids would want to participate.  They would want to clean.

As soon as our bottles arrived, my 5 and 8 year old couldn’t wait to get started.  They both really love science and mixing up their own “cleaning potions” was right up their alley.  Iyla chose to work on the green fresh bottle.  With three kids and a husband, we can use all the “fresh” we can get.  There are two different types you can mix… one for the air and one for your gear.  With just 4 ingredients, it was mixed and ready to spray.  The great part about it is that you can choose the scent or switch up the scent by choosing a different essential oil.  We decided to go with lavender.

Once it was mixed, Iyla walked around the house and sprayed just about anything she could find.  I’m sure she would have sprayed her older sister if she had been home at the time (though I don’t recommend spraying people).  The couch, the chairs, the rug… everything had a new fresh scent and our house still smells amazing.

Next, we mixed up the glass cleaner.  For some strange reason, my girls love washing the windows.   This easy to mix cleaner was not only effective, but smelled great and is safe for them to spray!  Falynn had a blast cleaning just about every window she could reach (and asked for a chair for those that she couldn’t).  The next day she was asking if she could wash them again.  I can’t remember our windows ever being so clean.

I think their favorite of all was the DIY wipes.  Reading the instructions on the back of the jar, I couldn’t believe I hadn’t done this sooner.  When I think of the amount of household wipes we have gone through in our home, I’m embarrassed.  I could have been making my own this entire time and reusing them!  Making simple, effective cleaners with ingredients from the home not only reduces the amount of chemicals you use, but it also reduces garbage and saves you money. Oh the money we would have saved on wipes alone…

getting kids to clean, cleaning essentials, non-toxic cleaning products, non-toxic cleaners, DIY cleaning products, DIY air freshener, DIY wipes, DIY cleaners, cleaning, mom blogger, mom blog, family blog, 2018

You just fill up the jar, shake it (giggles are inevitable) and then fill it with cut up cloth, which soaks up the cleaner!  It’s that easy.  Once the liquid had been completely soaked in, I asked “Who wants to clean the counter?”  Would you believe that these two girls raised their hands and were shouting “ME!!!!!!” like I had just asked who wanted to eat some chocolate?  They were cleaning and they LOVED it.  After the counter, they asked what was next. They were actually looking for things to clean!

Once that little wipe was full of dirt (and that wasn’t long), they ran into the other room to show Daddy what they had done.  They were so proud that they not only made the cleaner, but used it to get rid of the daily dirt and grime that filled our home.

The best part is that once these containers are empty, we just refill them!  Each time you refill a Cleaning Essentials container, you eliminate one container from the garbage system. I can’t imagine that we will ever go back.  I look forward to watching my girls fall even more in love with cleaning and trying all of the containers that Cleaning Essentials has to offer.

After years of failing, I'm excited to share how I finally got my kids to clean the house, thanks to Cleaning Essentials DIY cleaners.

    Hi Heather!
    This is amazing! I remember last Sunday, I asked my boy if he could help me out with cleaning the tiles outdoor. I told him to just use the brush like playing his toy truck. He enjoyed doing it for at least 15 minutes and then left. It’s really hard to get them (kids) involved in cleaning. Although I do use my own natural tile cleaner (vinegar, lemon, and water + baking soda), I think this is worth a try!
    Thank you for sharing!
    Cheers,
    Jessica

    I love getting help from the little ones. Seeing them want to help really puts a smile on my face!

    I’d really love to be able to mix my own supplies. Abby is allergic to everything so we really have to be picky about what we buy. This way, we’d know what was in it so she could help with the cleaning which crazily enough, she loves to do.

    I’ve gotten my kids involved with cleaning at a young age and used to make cleaning products to ensure they were safe for my kids. I love that these have the mixing instructions right on the bottle.

    I need to try this out and see if I can get my kids to clean more. They will, reluctantly. Maybe this will get them more excited.

    The different colored bottles are fun and helpful in know what is what. Whatever works when it comes to getting kids to help clean. Sounds like great idea.

    I can’t ever remember how much of what to put in the container to make my own cleaners. I love the colors of the bottles and that they have clearly marked how much of each ingredient I need. I also like the idea of chemical free cleaning.

    It’s nice that they have colorful bottles and also easy to follow instruction for kids. It makes cleaning feel like playtime now for them.

    This is absolutely brilliant!!! While my son is only 5 months old, preparing can never be too early. At least I can start taking some mental notes for everything.

    I get my kids to clean up the house and they usually grumble though. Even if they don’t clean things perfectly it is important that they learn how to do household chores. Both my older kids landed jobs that required skills that I taught them growing up.

    I love the idea of letting the kids help make the cleaning solution. Not only does it involve them but it makes them want to use what they made. We have to try this, my boys would love it

    I do make a lot of my own cleaning products. It does help when I have my daughter cleaning and doing chores.

    I have never tried making my own cleaning products. That is so cool. I will have to try that and maybe I’ll get my son to clean his room too. 🙂

    I like mixing up my own cleaning stuff but sometimes i forget what I need to put into them. I like the idea behind cleaning essentials because everything is clearly marked. This would be very useful to have.

    What a great idea to help get your kids lending a helping hand around the home! I bet it makes such a difference and of course it is a great life lesson.

    What a great idea! Young kids tend to love things they consider to be “grown-up.” My 2-year-old grandson loves to sweep!

    You know, whenever you introduce the idea of concocting anything, kids generally get excited about it. I have to try these products.
