There are just five weeks to go until Christmas Day gets here! If you’re like most Canadians, you’re either in full holiday shopping mode already, or you will be soon. Of course, you don’t have to celebrate Christmas to get into a holiday shopping mood. There are numerous gift-giving celebrations including Hanukkah and Kwanzaa taking place next month as well. The bottom line is that a shopping frenzy is taking place inside each mall throughout Canada, as we speak.
As you’re likely aware, online shopping is incredibly popular too. Amazon, for example, has become known as the go-to destination for most online holiday shoppers. We have to admit – we did a bit of Amazon browsing ourselves, this week, and just couldn’t help but want to share some of our favourite home-cleaning holiday gifts!
In last week’s blog, we stressed the need to remove your shoes and/or boots before entering your home. Needless to say, failure to do so, this winter, will track dirt, slush and other filth from outside into your home. However, where do you put your wet boots when you take them off? If they’re placed on your floor, you’ll certainly be left with a mess to clean. Instead, utilize a wet boot tray.
“You can’t stop your shoes from getting wet and dirty in the winter but you can stop them from ruining your floors thanks to this convenient tray,” explains Amanda Tarlton in her USAToday.com article highlighting many of Amazon’s best home-cleaning gifts, “It has a near-perfect rating on Amazon because it’s well-made, easy to clean, and has a 1.2-inch raised edge so water won’t spill onto your floors.”
This product just looks so cool! As its name implies, it’s a drill with a brush at the end of it. Unlike a standard brush, this item offers you some serious power behind those brush strokes. If you’re looking to remove mould, dirt and grime from your bathroom tiles, your kitchen appliances and just about anything else that needs a good scrubbing, the Drillbrush will certainly come in handy.
“‘I love spending hours scrubbing away winter dirt and grime,’ said no one ever,” writes Tarlton, “That’s why the Drillbrush is one of the cleaning products on Amazon with a cult following that’s actually worth buying. Reviewers love how easy it is to use (you simply hook it onto the end of a drill and let the drill’s power do the work) and that it can be used on anything from grout to kitchen appliances.”
These slippers look equal parts comfy and cute. Available in white and brown bear designs, these adorable slippers double as mops! That’s right – the bottoms of these slippers have thick and soft mop bristles making every step you take in them an act of cleaning your floors!
“Slippers are a winter essential, so why not pick a pair that cleans your house while you wear them?” encourages Tarlton, “They may seem and look silly but reviewers swear that they really do work. The microfiber chenille mop on the bottom picks up dirt and absorbs moisture as you walk and, when they get dirty, all you have to do is toss them in the washing machine before cleaning again.”
