What's a great cleaning product you've discovered?

Kristin Lindstrom

I have two cleaning products that handle a number of chores around the house. 1. I love Method Multi Surface Cleaner in the lavender scent and 2. A micro fiber mop. The Method cleaner is a great eco-friendly solution for a quick wipe down in the bathroom or kitchen. The micro-fiber mop does an amazing job on the floors and then you just pop the pad in the washer and it is ready to go again.

What is your best tip for keeping the entryway clean and clutter-free?

Kristin Lindstrom

If you have kids then make it easy for them to be self sufficient. A hook placed low enough so they can hang their own coat, or a separate bin or drawer for each child to corral their own mittens and hats. Instead of one flat surface for shoes, vertical shelving up the wall. Wet shoes and boots on the bottom and rotate them up when they dry.
