Did you know that tomorrow (March 19th) is National Cleaning Day..?
What a fantastic excuse to get all my cleaning products out and have a big SPRING CLEAN!!
I had never used Vileda cleaning products before and now that I have I don't think I will be going back to my usual Tesco Value dishcloths and Scourers!!
Today I will be reviewing a Vileda Microfibre 2 in 1 Kitchen Cloth, Active Wave Scourers all purpose clothes and a dusting cloth. All fantastic products!
That pack contains 2 cloths which can be used time and time again. I have used mine a few times now and they still look good as new. Great value for money as these cloths only cost £1.19
The pack contains 2 and costs £1.29
This is also a great cloth for using on the cooker hob as the softer side leaves it looking nice and shiny. This cloth is my favourite out of all the Vileda cleaning products :-)
It is available for just £2.49
The dust cloth costs £1.99

FAMILIES IN THE SOUTH-WEST URGED TO DO THEIR SHARE OF THE CLEANINGRegional housework report launched to celebrate National Cleaning Day – 19 March, 2014Parents and children in the south-west of England are being encouraged to share out the household chores equally, as a new report reveals it’s often just one person who ends up doing the lion’s share.For example the average mum in the region spends up to 9.5 hours a week cleaning up after her children, according to the research, although this can reach up to 13 hours in places such as Scotland.
Hours spent per week cleaning by Mums
|Yorkshire & the Humber|
The report was commissioned by Viledato launch the UK’s first ever ‘National Cleaning Day’ on 19thMarch, a day on which the brand is encouraging everyone around the country to pick up their mops, brooms and cloths and help out a little around the home. After all, the report found that 85% of mums in the south-west said they regularly feel like they are the only member of the family to clean up after everyone.
Stains from drinks or dirty marks on walls or floors are also a regular bug-bear for local mums, according to the report. 85% said they regularly have days where they feel like all they do is clean up after the kids, with 79% admitting they regularly row with their children about it.
Yesterday Vileda spokesperson Lindsey Taylor said: “National Cleaning Day is about everyone putting a little sparkle into their home and sharing the workload. It would be understandable if it was just mums of very young children who have to spend the majority of their evenings cleaning, but the report shows it carries on even when the kids are old enough to be helping out.”
But it’s not just children mums have to clean up after as in the south-west they also spend an hour and a half a week tidying up their partner’s mess, whether it’s washing clothes or cleaning dishes and the majority (62%) admitted this has often led to arguments.
Nine in ten mums in the south-west said they wish their partner made more effort to help out with chores around the home. Just 2% said their partner did more housework than them, 29% said it is split 50/50, while 69% said their partner made little or no contribution to keeping the house clean and tidy.
Top cleaning jobs mums in the south-west spend their time on:
1. Washing clothes (74%)
2. Washing dishes (55%)
3. Cleaning the kitchen (55%)
4. Making the beds (53%)
5. Picking up clothes from bedroom floor (52%)
6. Putting toys away (50%)
7. Cleaning carpets or floors (45%)
8. Cleaning dirty marks from the sink or bath (44%)
9. Tidying bedrooms (39%)
10. Wiping dirty marks from the walls (37%)
Lindsey added: “On the 19thMarch we’d like everyone to pick at least one job and offer to help out. This could be vacuuming the whole house, or even just washing up after dinner – but it will give mum, or whoever normally does the cleaning, a little break.
“Vileda has devised a whole host of cleaning tips and advice aimed at making cleaning easier, not just for National Cleaning Day, but throughout the year. Visit our Facebook, twitter or blog for further information and keep an eye out for some great competitions throughout the day.”
