ULTIMATE CLEAN WITH ME 2020 | SPRING CLEANING MOTIVATION
Hi, guys. Welcome back to my channel and to
another cleaning video. I’m hoping this provides
you with loads of motivation. The other day,
I bleached the upstairs of our home. It took
me about two hours and my husband had the
kids downstairs, but yeah, I feel a lot better
I normally try and get all of the cleaning
tasks done during the week while the kids
are at school, but now that we’re on UK lockdown,
I decided to just get some of it done on Sunday,
so that I can then focus on the kids, their
homeschooling and work as well. It’s definitely
been a bit of a juggle, but I always feel
better after I clean.
And I feel like cleaning is actually helping
me get through this very strange time that
we’re all going through. It’s helping with
my anxiety. And I guess it just gets me feeling
like I’ve had a small win when I improve something
or do a little project around the house, so
give it a try as well. If there is a space
that has been driving you crazy, I guarantee
if you tackle it, you will feel a little bit
better about it.
So I have loads to show you today. I’m going
to be cleaning two bathrooms and the bedrooms
upstairs as well. And for my six year old’s
bedroom, we’ve actually just revamped it.
He’s got a new bed and we’ve made it a bit
more of a grown-up space. So I will definitely
give you a tour of his room while I’m cleaning

that is full of motivation. So yes, without
further ado, let’s get into my clean.
So first off, I’m going to start out in my
bedroom and just straighten out the bed a
little bit. You can probably tell that I did
make this bed this morning, but since then
the kids have sat on it and jumped on it too.
So I’m just going to straighten it out a little
The sheets on our bed are from French Connection
and we just got those three big pillows at
the back. I got them from a local company
to me called Latham’s and I really love them.
They were quite expensive as cushions go,
but they’re really choppable, really good
quality. The black pillows are from Primark.
And then the smile pillow, I believe it was
Next up, I’m going to clean away all of the
books that are next to our bed. These are
Jackson’s books. My three year old is currently
sleeping in the middle of myself and my husband.
It’s not ideal, but we actually really do
like co-sleeping with him, so we’re just going
to keep going until we feel like it’s time
to make him sleep in his own room. It’s funny
because he never coasts up with us as a baby,
only really since we put him into a big boy
bed because I guess he could just get out
of it and walk into our room.
Next up, I’m just wiping down our little bedside
tables. We actually just have bedside shelves
rather than proper tables and we feel like
that makes the space look a bit bigger. And
I also dusted down our lamps as well. Then
I’m going to clear off my vanity unit. This
kind of becomes like, it builds up with just
loads of stuff because it’s a place to put
This perfume, I didn’t know what to do with.
The boys, bless them, they got me this for
Mother’s Day. But, I really don’t like the
smell of it, so I am going to get rid of it.
I’m so sorry boys if you see this in the future,
but the thought was there and it was very
But anyway, I’m going to dust down my vanity
unit to try and sort out a few of my makeup
brushes and my brushes. And then I have some
candles and perfume that I like to keep on
there. And I have just loads of jewelry and
hair ties and things like that.
Once I’ve dusted down the vanity unit itself,
I’m going to get my glass cleaner and wipe
down my jewelry holder. I got this from Oliver
Bonas. I just really liked the way that it
looks and it also holds my necklaces so well,
so they don’t get tangled. There is little
hooks inside and I feel like it’s a very organized
place to put my jewelry.
Next up, I’m going to wipe down the mirror
again, with the glass cleaner, and then the
top of my vanity unit as well. This was from
IKEA. We’ve had it for like 10 years, I think
and we’ve painted it to match the bedroom.
But, we love it. It’s really good quality
and it was very reasonable in price.
Next up, I have two other little trays with
jewelry on it and then I’m just trying to
rearrange a couple of baby photos of the boys.
And then I’m going to wipe down our shutters.
Dust definitely collects on the top section
of our shutters and it doesn’t take me a second
to just give them all a wipe down. So I’m
going to do that, and then also wipe down
the radiator as well.
I’m also going to freshen up our bedding just
by spraying a little bit of Febreze on to
our cushions and the throw on our bed as well.
Then I’m also going to open up the window,
just let our room air out a bit, let any odors
disappear. And then I’m going to a vacuum
So I get asked a lot, I have three vacuums,
all that I just really love, but I tend to
keep this Shark vacuum upstairs. I find that
it’s my favorite for carpet. I feel like it
really does get a lot up from our carpet.
So I’m just going to quickly run around with
this. And then I’m going to move on to our
Now, onto our en-suite. And the first thing
I wanted to do was empty the bins. And as
I was emptying it, the perfume that I threw
away that the boys got me fell and smashed.
So basically that must be karma for getting
rid of it because now the whole bathroom smells
of that perfume that I wasn’t sure about.
But anyway, I’m going to clean that up in
First off, I’m going to just wipe down my
shelves, so I’m taking all of the products
off and there is a mirror at the back of our
shelves. We found that that made the whole
room look a bit bigger. This is a very small
space, so small, it’s difficult for Matt and
I to ever be in this room at the same time.
But, I keep all my products on this little
turnstyle lazy Susan-type thing that I bought
on Amazon and it’s brilliant for my products.
Not only because when I’m using them I can
just spin them around and choose what I want
to use, but also when I’m cleaning the shelf,
I can just take the whole little lazy Susan
off and it doesn’t take much time at all.
Next up, I’m going to just quickly wipe down
our shower. This shelf in particular gets
a lot of black mold on it, so I’m using a
black mold cleaner for that. So I’m going
to spray the shelf and leave it while I clean
the rest of
I’m also going to switch out our towels, and
then get some fresh ones put out and then
also clean off this shelf. So I’m going to
take my makeup case off of it, wipe down this
little mirror. This is perfect for when I’m
plucking my eyebrows in the sunlight. That’s
why I’ve got that. And then I’m also going
to wipe down our windows and the shelf as
well before replacing everything. And yeah,
that’s nice and clean now.
Now I’m going to tackle the toilet. So I’ve
talked about this so many times before, but
I always use a blue cloth because I just remember
that blue is for loo. And I’m actually wearing
gloves for once, guys. That you guys are always
telling me off for not wearing it, rubber
gloves. But, the main reason I was wearing
them today while I was cleaning is, I’ve been
washing my hands so much and using hand sanitizer
that my hands are like red raw and very sore
at the moment, so I thought I would actually
wear gloves. So I hope some of you guys are
happy about that.
Now I’m just going to wipe down our sink.
There is nothing better than a clean sink,
is there? I’m just using a little bit of Cif,
just giving it a really good wipe down before
I clean our mirror, and give the toilet another
scrub and then wipe down the floor as well.
And that is the bathroom all done and looking
so much cleaner, so I’m pleased with that.
And the best thing about having a small bathroom
is that it doesn’t take very long to clean
So next up, I’m going to move on to my middle
son’s bedroom. I have three boys, but this
is my six year old’s room and he’s the one
who just got a brand new bed. So yeah, this
is obviously the before. I’ll show you what
it looks like when it’s all nice and clean.
But, he did have a tent bed. But we were finding
that he grew so tall, he was hitting his head
in it and it was actually waking him up some
nights. So we decided it was time to get a
different bed and we decided to just give
him [Fraser 00:00:12:06], our eldest son’s
old bed, which was a double. And we were worried
because he has got quite a small room, but
in a weird way now that he has a double bed,
his bedroom almost looks bigger.
But yeah, the bed was originally from Next.
We really like it because it’s kind of like
a fake leather. It’s easy to wipe down if
they get anything on it, like toothpaste,
or food or anything. And then I just got the
bed sheets from Next as well. I had really
liked the tartan look and there is like a
mustard-like line going through it, which
matches the rest of his room as well.
The little mountain cushion on his bed we
got from Loaf. I get loads of comments about
it and also the little moose head on the wall,
which you’ll see in a minute, is also from
Loaf as well.
Yes, but now I’m just going to clean his windows
and wipe down his window sill. And then go
around his room dusting all of the shelves
and surfaces before vacuuming.
So that is Caleb’s bedroom looking so much
cleaner. Then my youngest son came to find
me to see where I’ve been all this time, but
now I’m going to clean up my eldest son’s
room. This is Fraser. He’s nine years old.
This is probably my favorite bedroom in the
house. I just love how bright an area it is.
It has a really high ceiling that I love.
And let me know what you think of this pillow
that I’ve just placed in the middle of the
bed. It’s this really fleecy pillow that is
perfect for reading, I got it from Urban Outfitters.
And I thought it would be great, but Matt
thinks it’s really ugly and that I should
sell it. So what do you guys think? Let me
know in the comments. Should I keep it or
should I throw it?
Then I’m also going to wipe down his bedside
table. I’d love to repaint this while we’re
stuck in quarantine. It’s really worn on top.
So I thought that, that could be a project
that I do while we’re at home. He’s also got
so many Rubik’s Cubes that I’m putting back.
Then I’m also going to wipe down his window
sill and also clean the windows themselves
as well because they are looking a little
bit dusty, a bit dirty. So I’m just using
Windolene today. I have a couple of different
glass cleaners, mirror cleaners that I use,
but this one did seem to work really well.
So I’m just giving everything a really good
And then when it came to his carpets, I actually
found an old bottle of, what’s it called,
Shaken n’ Vac in our garage. I’ve never tried
it before. I think I bought it years ago,
but then didn’t use it because I always had
a toddler on the floor. But today, I thought
I would test it out just to get any odors
out of his carpet. So I just shook that on
and left it for a few minutes. You’re supposed
to leave it. And then I’m just going to vacuum
it up. And then, yeah, that is pretty much
Fraser’s. room all done.
And now, onto our family bathroom. Well, I
say family bathroom, it really is just the
boy’s bathroom. Hence, why the toilet seat
is up. I’m constantly telling them to put
it down. But as the only woman in the house,
I’m a little bit outnumbered living with four
But now, I’m going to wipe down our window
sill. And I tend to store the bath toys in
here. I have a really cute little storage
basket from IKEA that fits perfectly here,
so I’m going to put that there and then wipe
down our bath. It doesn’t look very dirty,
but it is a little bit grimy today, so I’m
just using a little bit of Cif and a scrubby
brush to just go around and give it a really
Then I’m also going to move on to the toilet
and wash that in the same way as I did the
other one and then also the sink and floor
All right, guys, I think that’s all that I
have time for today, but I’m pretty pleased
with how much I got done in a couple of hours.
And I’m really glad that I’ve done it on the
weekend and now this week I can just focus
on the kids because we’re all at home.
But, there is one other room that I really
need to clean, but I just have not got around
to it. I’ll show you it now and it will definitely
be for another video, but it’s Jackson’s room.
Because we were due to move, it kind of became
this like junk room because he’s been sleeping
in with us. So I need to tackle that at some
point this week, but that will be another
video. Let me show you how bad it is.
Guys, I’m so embarrassed. There is some laundry
to be put away. There is just books everywhere.
The boys’ pool table is in here. We’ve had
all of the soft toys out. His crib is just
full of stuff, cushions to go into the loft
and toys as well that they’ve had in there.
So basically, I think it’s finally time to
donate this crib to someone. It’s nine years
old. All the boys have had it, but it’s time
to part with it.
And yeah, we just need to have a clear route
and just like have a big sort out. So I think
that will be another video for this week.
I might even get the kids involved because
we’re all at home and it’ll be some good life
But anyway, thank you so much for watching
and for subscribing. I hope you’re all okay.
I’m sending you lots of love and I’ll see
you in my next one. Bye, guys.
