Man Clean with Swiffer Giveaway CAN #manclean

In our home we some how fell into traditional roles. I do most of the cooking and cleaning where my spouse does the yard work and repairs. Over the years we have learned that we are a better team so often we will help one another. A few times when I have went away my teen sons are left to clean and take care of the five year old. The first time I came home to a mess! 

Well what I considered a mess. But they did try.

Now I get the boys more involved in the house work. He actually does a good job. He may even get a bit intense about it haha

The only tip the men in my life have when it comes to cleaning is work together. The more people helping, the easier it is. And stay on top of it. No sense waiting for everything to pile up!

manclean-pack

I was quite excited to get this package. I like to do a good deep clean of the house before winter comes. Having this I knew I could get some help and get a “Man Clean

Man Clean

According to the Urban Dictionary- Man Clean is defined as attempting in vain to remove dirt, i.e. sweeping breadcrumbs under the rug or spraying Febreze over vents.

P&G thought this definition was outdated so they asked Canadians about their cleaning habits and found overwhelmingly, 86% of guys are contributing to household cleaning. To add, they own up to their great cleaning swagger! Over 1 in 3 (34%) Canadian males rate themselves as “great” at household cleaning. 

Amir Johnson of the Toronto Raptors has partnered with Swiffer to change that definition as well, encouraging men to boast about their cleaning swagger. 

The new definition of Man Clean

Man clean should be about empowering guys to boast about their cleaning swagger, using the best tools, like Swiffer, to get the job done.

Amir Johnson from the Toronto Raptors has partnered with Swiffer to change the definition of Man Clean, encouraging men to boast about their cleaning swagger. Here are his tips on how to clean like a man.

1. Set the mood. Cleaning can feel overwhelming, which is why it’s easy to procrastinate. Decide which room you want to tackle, scope out the scene and then get pumped by putting on your favourite tunes.

2. Make a realistic plan. Guys love having a clean plan of attack. Figure out what you’re going to clean and how, and then make sure to stick to your strategy. Ensure you give yourself enough time for each task—cutting corners to get it done fast only means you’ll need to do it right the next time.

Stay focused, check items off your list and finish the job the right way.

3. Pick up your stuff. A clean home is just as much about organization as it is dusting and Swiffering.

You can’t get a legit clean with stuff all over the place, like the shoes you took off while watching the game and the bottles you didn’t take out after a night with your buds. Every item has its place – put it away, don’t just clean around it.

4. Use the right tools. Swiffer is a guy’s secret weapon when it comes to achieving a great Man Clean.

The Swiffer WetJet is the all-in-one mopping solution that traps and locks dirt so it doesn’t get pushed around. Need to dust? The Swiffer Duster traps and locks up to three times more dust than feather dusters. And, don’t forget to pick things up and dust under them!

5. Reward yourself. Finished cleaning? Time to celebrate! Visit www.showyourclean.ca to boast about your Man Clean and join the movement.

I put my guys to the challenge and had them help with the cleaning this weekend. Wow! The house smells fantastic! The floors are clean, counters clean, carpets vacuumed, dishes sparkling. All the laundry is washed, folded and put away. It was 100% a team effort! So much easier than doing it on my own I tell you 🙂 With this handy kit they did not even complain. They actually had fun with how easy it all was. 

Just look at this man sized Swiffer duster with extender

manclean-duster

I placed it beside the regular Swiffer duster to give you an idea of size. The end even bends so you can get tops shelves, fan blades and other hard to reach areas. 

manclean-fan

This along with the Swiffer wet jet makes for a quick clean. No getting down and crawling around to get the floors sparkly. It took less than an hour with everyone working together to clean the house. I truly appreciated the help and know when I leave next, the house will remain clean.

  7. Buy a new cleaning gadget and he will do the cleaning just to try it.

  8. Karry Knisley says

  12. Mix vinegar and Dawn soap to clean, from floors,shower,tub and sinks.

    I have subscribed via RSS: – meiklesue at yahoo dot com

  22. Elizabeth Matthiesen says

    My son is the man in my house and he tends to think it's ok to pile the washing up to the ceiling before actually tackling it – his argument is that it saves on water & electricity – blows my mind!
    I use baking soda and vinegar to clean out my sink and tub drains, works a treat. I also use vinegar and a splash of washing up liquid in water to clean my windows, also works very well.

  23. I am stupidly afraid of heights and because of that HATE to clean the tops of my kitchen cupboards.I started lining them with wax paper which is the perfect size!So now twice a year I spend less than 5 minutes changing out the paper!

    Have a routine , helps to keep things done !

  27. Bonnie
    Please throw in the cleaning crew also

  53. Michelle Policelli says

    Always use gloves if your using chemicals!!

  54. Ha ha, very funny. My man has no cleaning tips, he's oblivious to any dust and dirt in the house. His best 'man cleaning tip' would be to sweep out the garage every few weeks!

  112. Carole Ann says

    The "man" in my life is my 14 year old teen, his cleaning tip is to kick and shove all the junk and dirty laundry from his bedroom floor under the bed, and then only go through it and sort it on laundry day. Doesn't work for me, but one day he will learn.. lol

  113. My boyfriends tip is to always wipe up pee that hots the seat right away.

  114. Don't expect him to clean how you would clean, and be happy with his cleaning job

  116. onlybluemomma3 says

    I can honestly say.. I haven't learned any cleaning tips from my husband LOL

  117. Robert Wise says

    I am a man and I do clean up after myself. My tip is to carry about some kind of Rubbermaid container (or any kind of container) and do a walk through of the house; put everything you see in it that doesn't belong where you found it. Much easier than to take the container through the house and put everything back where it goes.

  118. I think my guys (jr & sr) do a poor job cleaning on purpose so I won't ask them often…..is that a tip? lol

  119. Teach them how to clean because half the time they don't know how to do it.

    My husband is very neat and tidy. When I was visiting my daughter, who was going through a difficult divorce, he kept our kitchen floor spotlessly clean by wiping up spots and spills when and if they occurred. I thought the floor was newly scrubbed when I returned but he had used this method which worked wonderfully.

Thank goodness for my adult children and husband who bought me a roomba and a crock pot!

  187. Nancy Fontaine says

    My husband says to put a couple of drops of vinegar in the water spray bottle. It helps cut dirt in corners.

  188. My husband absolutely hates housework. He helps do dishes, and will vacuum now and then, but that's about it so no tips from him. From me: Use bounce sheets on your baseboards. It helps repel dust and pet fur, meaning they don't have to be cleaned as often. To avoid dropping dust off your ceiling fan while cleaning put a pillowcase over the blades, then pull the dust off into the pillowcase. When done, take outside, turn inside out, and shake.

  189. Bonnie Lam says

    Tell the man to make a bet. If he doesn't clean up after himself then he'll have to smell his own stinky socks. It works. Trust me.

    Good luck to you all. Huggiez.

  212. Susan Stirling says

    I long ago learned to save my breath and do it myself — I came home (at the time Bermuda) once after a hurricane to learn power was out for 5 days and though my husband was home, the fridge and freezer doors were still closed and full — ewwww shrimp and steak in the freezer after all that time? The old 'pros' taught me that the easiest way to clean "stank" from the inside of fridges is rolled up newspapers overnight.
