Spring Cleaning In A Snap!

As an expectant mama-to-be, I’ve been obsessing over getting my house clean for the new babe’s arrival! But add on top of that, a newfound paranoia about the the type of cleaning supplies being used. So I starting asking more experienced Moms what to do to get my Spring cleaning done in a snap, using the best products for me and the baby. One name kept coming up, Homejoy.

Homejoy is a new cleaning service made especially for busy moms. So I decided to give it a whirl. Homejoy’s simple, speedy booking system (I did it on my phone!) instantly matches you with verified, rigorously screened cleaning professionals. I was also happy to find out that I could request non-toxic cleaning supplies or even provide my own.

The cleaning team that came to my place was awesome. They didn’t leave until the house was in perfect condition from top to bottom (I could get used to this!) and they did it all with a smile. They even talked to me about easy ways to keep things tidy between their visits. Plus they shared areas to focus on keeping spick and span for babies and toddlers. (i.e.: Clean floors are a mama must since little explorers will always find something icky to eat off them.)

I started thinking how a session with Homejoy could be the perfect, out of the box baby gift for my equally preggers girlfriend, as well as for my friend who has a newborn AND a toddler to run around after. The only downfall is that it’s certainly addictive. Who knew the grout between my tiles could get so sparkly white? Go to and claim $25 discount on your first appointment (or simply type in “SoCalMoms” at check out). Happy Spring!
