Moving to a new home is a chance for a fresh start. New rooms, a new neighbourhood and possibly even new jobs and schools. The best part of moving is getting a clean slate. With Swiffer and Mr. Clean, it’s easy for movers to maintain that fresh clean and keep their home looking like new.

Here are some tips on how you can prepare for your move and get your new home looking its best.

  • Purge your belongings while you are packing your old home. Throw away items that are not in good enough condition to donate. Donate clothing and household items that are in good shape but no longer wanted by your family. If you have the time and the follow-through, sell newer items that you no longer want.
  • Map your new home on grid paper and decide where all of your furniture will go when you move in. This will help you determine what you don’t have space for.
  • Plan a full day of cleaning in the new home before unpacking.
  • Dust the top of all window and door frames, as well in all corners and light fixtures using the Swiffer 360° Extendable Handle Duster.
  • Scrub door frames, door knobs, window frames and plumbing fixtures with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
    • Lifts dirt, removing more grime per swipe than the leading all-purpose bleach spray cleaner.
    • Features water-activated micro-scrubbers that penetrate surface grooves anywhere grime gets trapped to remove built-up soap scum, grease and dirt.
    • Has no harsh chemicals.
  • Remove all dust and debris from the floors with the Swiffer Sweeper.
  • Mop all of the floors in the new home with the Swiffer WetJet: All-in-one system that cleans floors thoroughly using cleaning solutions specially formulated to break up and dissolve tough messes.
  • Clean all windows so that the light can shine in on your fresh and clean new home.
  • Once you have unpacked, break out the Swiffer again and get ready for a new day!
