As I shared with all of you on Monday, we’re moving! We finally found our dream home and are relocating to be closer to our kids’ school. But with this excitement also comes quite a bit of stress. Because to truly enjoy our new home, we have to first sell our old home. As of right now we’ve been on the market for about a month. It’s been a crazy experience to say the least and during our listing, I’ve learned more about fixing up my home than I ever thought possible.
You see, selling a home is not simple. Where we live there are tons of homes on the market. And that means lots of competition! So I knew I needed to give my home a little renovation to make it the most appealing to potential buyers. But the thing was, I didn’t have a lot of time or money to spend making the necessary changes. Thankfully I discovered that with Mr. Clean products, I can give my home a whole new look with only fifteen minutes and a little elbow grease! Ready to learn more?
I’ve heard it said many times that a kitchen is what sells a home. I totally get this because it’s where I spend the majority of my time. And I’ll be honest our kitchen needed a little bit of help. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s a great kitchen. The size is amazing. The layout is great. The things I can’t change are good, which is really a huge relief. But let’s be honest…10 years of cooking in a kitchen leaves it’s mark.
Since I knew my kitchen needed to be where I focused the majority of my energy, I wanted to find a way to transform it without doing a major remodel. And Mr. Clean products came to the rescue!
Start with the Sink
Let’s start with the kitchen sink. Ours looks a little dingy. And a little used. But I didn’t want to totally replace it. Thankfully I didn’t have to. We were easily able to transformed the sink to look like new with the help of Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Extra Power! Build up quickly disappeared and within minutes I had a brand new sink that looked as good as it did the day we moved in!
Move on to the Stove
Inspired by my sink success, I moved on to my stove. It’s had years of grime splattered onto it and I knew it needed a good, thorough cleaning. The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser came to the rescue again with the ability to cut through grime and leave my surfaces sparkling! Where it had once looked used and dated, I was able to restore shine and turn my stove back into an area that anyone would love to cook on.
Don’t Forget the Fridge
With my sink and stove shining, my fridge was the next on my hit list. I knew potential buyers were opening that door and checking out what was inside and to be quite frank, it was embarrassing! I needed fridge shelves that looked welcoming and ready for new items, not ones that showed remnants of what they held before. With a little Mr. Clean Concentrated Multi-Surface Cleaner, my fridge shelves and drawers were transformed from nasty to sparkling, in a way that would make buyers want to add their own items!
Freshen up the Floors
If you think your floors are somewhere that potential buyers will just walk, think again! Dirty grout can be a huge turn off and I knew I had it! After inspecting my grout to find that it was almost black (ick!), I set to work with my Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Let me say I do mop my floors weekly but I was shocked at the amount of dirt that came off the grout and even my tiles. With a few minutes and a little elbow grease, my floors were back to the white they had once been and that I knew buyers would appreciate.
Finish with the Walls
With everything in my kitchen looking like it had new life breathed into it, the imperfections on my walls really stood out. I didn’t want to have to repaint and since I’ve used Mr. Clean Magic Erasers for years, I knew I would have to. All I had to do was spot clean any scuffs or crayon marks in the wall and instantly, it looked like my paint job was brand new once again!
After a quick once over of the kitchen and tightening a few loose screws, I stood back to look at my work.
And I have to admit, it looked like a whole different kitchen. Where once dirt had reigned supreme, now sparkle was the word of the day! It almost made me sad that I’d be leaving this beautiful kitchen to someone new…almost. And coupled with my excitement over the way my kitchen looked was immense pride as well. Because I had made this transformation happen…with a little help from my good buddy Mr. Clean of course!
