Fall is a great time to spend time with the family, but it’s also time to prepare your house for winter!
Who has time to spend hours upon hours cleaning their home? (Definitely not this gal!)
Plus, we here at Quirky Inspired want to give you awesome fall cleaning tips that save you time and money! That way your home is taken care of, PLUS you have time to enjoy some downtime!
In the digital age, it seems like we live in a time of perfection. Household chores and to do lists always get checked off. Our lawns are perfectly manicured. Our children are always clean. Our homes never looked unkempt…….
Scratch that, if you guys are anything like me, you are the opposite of all that! I want to clean quickly and efficiently in as little time as possible, so I can do the IMPORTANT things in life like drinking crockpot mulled wine!
We don't live in a Pinterest perfect world. Life is supposed to be messyClick To TweetWe don’t live in a Pinterest perfect world, life is SUPPOSED to be messy
Life is supposed to be filled with saying “screw it” and getting to those chores when you just can’t stand looking at that pile of laundry anymore (or have fears of leaving the house naked because of lack of clean clothing)
Last year hubsters and I bought our first home. It’s the American Dream right……to be a homeowner…..
Don’t get me wrong we LOVE our home, but there are things that all of sudden YOU have to take care of. There is no landlord to call to do the dirty work (hello, cleaning gutters)
Each season has it’s maintenance things that you have to do in order to protect your home.
- Cleaning gutters
- Raking Leaves
- Weeding Gardens
- Changing Water Filters
You get to do all sorts of fun things when you own a home. Fall cleaning looks a lot different when you own a house, it’s not just about cleaning the inside of your house. It’s a whole other world, and momma doesn’t have time to clean, yo.
If money were no object, then I would hire myself a maid, a cook, and a hot day laborer crew to take care of all the things around the house that I really don’t wanna do. (Hot bodies glistening in the sun,………oh, sorry got distracted for a second)
Well, since I didn’t when the power ball this year, I’ve had to find other fall cleaning tips and hacks to get my home in tip top shape this fall.
Let’s get ready to rumble. Are you ready to tackle your fall cleaning checklist this year?
Fall Cleaning Tips For Women That Have NO Time to Clean
1.Grout cleaning time: Grout is one of those things that gets neglected during most of the year. Now’s the time to conquer that “used to be white” grout.
Don’t stress about using one grout cleaner brush at a time (Who’s got time for THAT??!!)
I’ve found this magical tool called the Grout Gator! You can clean 2 to EIGHT lines of great at one time. (Seriously, magical) and the cleaning heads are adjustable! (Can I get an AMEN?)
Want to try out Grout Gator? You can save 15% off your purchase with this Grout Gator Coupon code: BB17
2. Mopping, mopping, mopping: After you are done tackling the grout, mopping time.
Don’t mess with nasty, smelly mops and hot buckets of water.
Tackle your floor in a swipe with O-Cedar ProMist MAX. This mop means serious bidness!
You put your own solution in the spray bottle (we love using vinegar and essential oils in our house, check out some of our homemade cleaners here)
The O-Cedar ProMIST Max head flips 180 degrees which means you have TWO cleaning surfaces.
Clean more, stop less which means you SAVE time (because you don’t have time to do this remember?)
3. Wash Your Linens and Curtains:
Fall is a great time to wash those dusty curtains. Some people have time to vacuum them year round (not me)!
Drop your linens in the wash with some Molly’s Suds in there, dry them, and they look as good as new!
Takes less time than a regular load of laundry. Plus Molly’s SUDS are safe for everyone in your family.
They pride themselves on not having icky chemicals in their cleaning products! This makes them better for the environment and your family.

4. Scrub a Dub, Dub: One of the tricks to cleaning with you literally have no time is to do it in small spurts.
Clean 10-15 minutes a day, WHEN YOU HAVE a second, and eventually you will see progress.
Having tools like the Scour Daddy, a close relative of the Scrub Daddy, is awesomesauce.
ScourDaddy is soft when you put it under warm water and firm when you put it under cold water. It’s TWO sponges in one powerful scourer. (Psst. Having two-in-ones like this help declutter your home too!)

5. When All Else Fails: When you decide screw it, I REALLY don’t have time to do this, you can always have one final weapon in your belt!
PowerOE is an amazing order eliminating line of products that uses nature to knock out powerful odors!
We’ve had to avoid other brands because they are all so heavily on the chemicals and fragrances to “eliminate odors”.
PowerOE is free from phtalates, alcohol, and artificial fragrances, which makes it safe for even weirdos like us to use in our household.
Since being diagnosed with a chronic illness, I REALLY have next to no time to clean.
On days when smells in my home are literally driving me nuts, it’s GREAT to have products like PowerOE to spray down the stinky culprit (though, I probably shouldn’t be putting this stuff on my teenage son, but his room is fair game)
On days that I feel better, I can use their PowerOE cleaner + odor eliminator plus my ScourDaddy to get my home nice and clean.
This power house combo makes cleaning a breeze, plus it gives you time for the important things like drinking wine!

6. Cover Those Windows: When fall hits, it means it’s time to cover those windows.
So much heat leaks out of unprotected windows and that means higher heating costs. (And who has FUN paying the electric company??)
This is our first year actually getting around to covering our windows before winter.
We’ve decided to use the Duck® brand Roll-On® Window Kits. It’s does five indoor windows, and it’s crazy easy to use.
In 3 easy steps, you can cover your windows every fall season to help reduce your heating costs. I know this gal did a happy dance!
Now that you have your fall cleaning tips, and the tools to help you get the job done as fast as humanly possible.
Have fun! Enjoy fall, and these fall cleaning tips help you get through all the yuck of cleaning quickly!
