Happy Monday! Let's start the week on the cleanest note, shall we? It has been a really busy few weeks and my sweet boyfriend Lin and I have been toying around with the idea of putting our condo on the market. We always thought we could keep it and just close the doors incase we end up missing The United States when we make the move to Barcelona in January. It's a beautiful space and we do love it but condo life is hard if you are not surrounded by people you enjoy and life is just too short for all of that. 

So long story short, we have had a few showings and have met with several realtors and putting a home on the market is no easy task. Getting a house ready to sell is such a hard job – it’s so emotionally and physically draining.  Once your house is for sale, you have the uncertainty of when the next showing will be. And did I mention we have two shedding dogs?! So everything must stay sort of perfect at all times. But honestly the cleaner my home is the more put together my life seems and this adds such a degree of "boss babe" success! And I need all the help I can get. I am giving so many hugs and kisses to Scotch-Brite® right now. They make the cleaning process easier AND faster. And they have the tools I need for every surface in my home including all of our fancy appliances. Lin would literally pass out if things got scratched so there is additional pressure on me when deep cleaning. You should definitely get yours!

I cannot survive without my Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge, Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge, and the Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Soap Dispensing Dishwand. They each have a specific use and I find they really work for me. 

First off, all of their green products are heavy duty and the blue are non-scratch. Talk about simplifying my life! 

The Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge is my most used tool because it removes tough, baked-on messes 50% faster. It’s great for pots and pans, oven racks, grill racks, sinks, and Lin even uses these for his tools and car tires. He seriously keeps a few in the garage. Next, the Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge is amazing because its proven safe for non-stick cookware, counter tops, cook tops, tubs, shower tile and even windows. It does wonders on all of our expensive appliances and our marble in our restrooms. And I love this one for hand washing the good china when we have a dinner party and it is a dream on all of my bookcases.

I also use the Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Soap Dispensing Dishwand for hand-washing some of my dishes. I like that you can control how much soap you use with this creating less waste. This is amazing on my oven rack too. It cleans messes 50% more faster. Can I get the praise hands emoji right about now please?! And I love that you can buy the refills for this too.

I have compiled a quick checklist to keep your space show ready if it is on the market. This has really helped me stay organized with this process and I hope that it will help you too.
