Spring Cleaning and My Little Green

As ya'll know-I've been kicking some Spring Cleaning's tail lately! I'm guessing its part of nesting in general-but I've been cleaning like a mad woman! And to be honest, I've been having a lot of fun with it! (yes...I was serious about the "mad" part!)

One of the things that has been on my list is to clean some of the thrift store baby items I've bought the past few weeks. Some have been in pretty good shape-and some have been pretty gross. I've also needed to clean my toddler's car seats as well which were in horrible condition!!!

So I stripped off the three car seat covers and one stroller cover. Then, I busted out my favorite cleaning "supply", the Bissell Little Green Machine. Man I love this thing!


You fill it up with a cleaning concentrate and water...then get to scrubbing. It's pretty magical. I bought this last year with taxes, but was just using it for the occasional spill. In the past week or so now, I've been using it for all kinds of things! 


I scrubbed and scrubbed the seat covers with great success! My camera wouldn't pick up the dirt, so no before shots :( Here is proof on just how dirty these covers were:

My kids put that gold coin in there.

Is that not disgusting? And this was just after cleaning one stroller cover and one carseat cover. Only took about 20 mins of cleaning to get them pretty much spotless. 

The first carseat I cleaned was the baby's. I was able to get it used at our consignment shop for FREE! I had some credit at the store, and didn't have to pay anything for it. It's not even close to the expiration date, and looks pretty darn good now!


This is why I LOVE buying used. It is possible to get quality at a cheaper price-while being pretty eco-friendly as well. 

I still have a few more things to scrub down, but (I can't believe I'm saying this) I'm really enjoying it. 

That's what I've been up to. 

How's YOUR Spring Cleaning going?
