12 Fall Cleaning Hacks & How to Get a Free Fall Cleaning Kit

There’s no denying that fall is here. We’re loving the autumn color popping up in our yard and the surrounding area. While I know it’s a great time to be doing the fall cleaning in prep for winter and the holidays, it’s also a great time to be outside enjoying the weather. Even though there is an obvious chill in the air, it’s still a great time to sneak in some outside time without being too bundled up. This time of the year is a great time to be planting mums and prepping for spring planting as well. Mums are just so lovely and the subtle scent is a pleasant reminder of fall.

With shorter days and the kids being inside for more of the time, the house is bound to get dirty! Although I’d rather curl up with a good book than spend hours scrubbing, I still want my house to be a clean, inviting space to spend time in.

That’s why I was delighted when Grove Collaborative sent me this Mrs. Meyer’s fall set! I’ll tell you why I’m so smitten with it — and how you can get it for FREE.

I’m thrilled with Grove Collaborative: my secret weapon for making my house feel warm and welcoming.

With Grove Collaborative, I can stay cozied up under a blanket instead of rushing around at the store. Remember how I told you about how Grove delivers the best natural products right to my doorstep, on my schedule. They remember my favorites, and remind me when I’m about to run out of hand soap or shampoo. Plus, I can rest assured knowing that my home is clean and toxin free and that all the products are safe, and effective.

Plus, Grove introduces me to great new products that I never would’ve found at my local grocery store. Two of my fall favorites: Mrs. Meyer’s seasonal scents in Apple Cider and Mum. The Apple Cider smells just like real apples! It’s tart and juicy, with just enough spice. The Mum is a leafy, warm floral scent that reminds me of a fall garden.

I love fall but know how hectic it can get — especially this time of year with the holidays approaching! Here are a few of my favorite cleaning hacks to save you precious time!   

So get out that pen and start checking off your to-do list. First though, my top cleaning hacks that should help you get through the fall cleaning to-do list as you prep ahead for the holidays. 

12 All Natural FAll Cleaning Hacks

  1. Liquid Rings on Wooden Surfaces: Use a hairdryer to remove liquid rings from wooden surfaces and refresh them with olive oil!
  2. Spilled Olive Oil on the Rug: Rub fresh baking soda into the rug with a wet cloth and the stain will be gone in the morning.
  3. Spilled Nail Polish on the Carpet: Don’t panic! You can rub out the stain by using a microfiber and rubbing alcohol.
  4. Original artwork in crayon on the wall: Using a clean toothbrush, scrub the wall with non-gel white toothpaste (containing baking soda) and rub away the mural.
  5. Broken glass on the kitchen floor: The vacuum just never gets all those tiny shards, but bread does! Grab some slices and gently press down. It’s best to hand pick the big pieces and then use this trick to pick up the rest. Remember to wrap them in newspaper before you put it in the recycling to make sure no one gets cut.
  6. Baked on yuck on your glass casserole: One of the best kitchen tricks is to rub a ball of aluminum foil mixed with dish soap, of course I love Mrs.Meyer’s Dish liquid, on these glass dishes to make them sparkle again.
  7. Dust on Surfaces: Banish that summer dust buildup! Use your Fall Mrs. Meyer’s multi-surface spray and microfiber to remove dust from your ceilings, walls, baseboards and woodwork.
  8. Prep your fall and winter clothes: Pack up your light summer clothes and linens and replace them with cool-season items. I love Caldrea’s linen spray — it helps keep things fresh smelling!
    • Bonus Tip: While you are packing away summer things and pulling out the fall and winter items, go ahead and get rid of clothes that haven’t seen the light of day in years. Pack them up in a box and drop off at your local thrift shop.
  9.  Before you start that Fall Baking! Take stock of your pantry — what spices are you missing for the season,(think cinnamon, nutmeg cloves)? To get your best baking results, replace spices older than sixth months and/or that don’t smell fragrant.
  10. Natural cleaning for the oven: If the smell of oven cleaner makes your eyes water, then imagine what it does to the food cooked in it! It’s time to move away from the toxins and make a super easy all natural oven cleaner: Mix Arm & Hammer’s baking soda and water and coat the oven surfaces with the paste and let it stand overnight. While wearing gloves, use a spatula to remove the paste and wipe clean with a wet sponge.
  11. Add a warm, inviting pop of color to welcome friends and family into your home: Set out some flowers (Mums are a nice, affordable choice) and light a candle for a welcoming glow.
  12. Fire Safety First: be sure to sweep the chimneys for those cold nights when a fire is a must.

Don’t Forget the Outdoor Areas During Fall Cleaning

  • Plant some beautiful Spring bulbs in well-drained soil as they’ll need 12-16 weeks of temperatures that are 45 degrees or colder. It will be a lovely welcome for warmer weather!
  • Bring your outdoor furniture in for the season. Store your wicker, iron and other yard furniture in a protected enclosure to prevent weather damage.
  • Cover your firewood to minimize moisture. Only the top two feet need to be covered, as air should circulate to keep the pile dry.
  • Enlist the kids to help rake the growing amount of falling leaves. This is a great family chore and  activity (not to mention the perfect opportunity for cute pictures!).

My favorite item in this set? The multi-surface spray. It smells so good, I want to run around and clean everything!
