Best Summer Ever

This post is sponsored by Clorox. Opinions are my own.

School’s out, and I’m just as excited as my kids are about that! :)

While we don’t have any big vacation plans this summer, I’m on a mission to soak up every fun moment in the sun and to create some fantastic memories for my kids. We’ll be enjoying most of our summer adventures in our own back yard this year and I truly can’t wait to get started.

Some of our favorite things to do in the back yard include jumping on our trampoline, having water balloon fights and playing with our two rambunctious dogs.

With so much action happening around our home this summer, it’s bound to get messy.

Where messes happen, germs and bacteria can thrive. That’s the last thing I want spoiling our carefree summer vibe, and it’s why I always turn to Clorox® Regular-Bleach2.

To be honest, I’m pretty brand loyal. That old cliché about not fixing things that aren’t broken? I like that, and it’s sort of my mantra with many things in life.

My grandma and my mother always turned to Clorox for its reliable cleaning power, and now that I’m a mother myself, I can completely appreciate a product that does the job, too.

When it comes to preparing all of that yummy summer fare, I definitely reach for Clorox® Bleach to keep every surface that touches any raw meat clean.

It just gives me so much peace of mind to know that those areas are getting a thorough and disinfected Clorox clean.

No one wants raw chicken juice setting up a colony of yuckiness on their cutting board or countertop.

I also like to wipe down the surfaces that my family touches before we have family gatherings and cookouts. I use a bleach solution to clean our plastic picnic table, plastic patio chairs, our cooler and even the stair rails on our decks. It’s so easy to clean using the simple formula below:

  • Use 1/2 cup of Clorox® Regular-Bleach2 in 1 gallon of water
  • Thoroughly wet surface with the solution and allow it to remain on the surface for 5 minutes
  • Rinse with clean water and dry

I also use this mixture on almost all of the surfaces in my home including our sinks, countertops and toilets. And, with a bleach solution of 5 teaspoons bleach for every 100 gallons of water, I can chlorinate my kiddies’ wading pool and also sanitize it!

I know that we’re talking about having the best summer ever, but, let me just say that I simply won’t trust another product for cleaning my toilet. It has to be Clorox® Regular-Bleach2, every time. It keeps my home cleaner longer because it also kills 99.9 percent of germs, disinfecting all the surfaces in my home to help protect my family from bacteria and other germs.

I think it’s so important for families to remember that an amazing summer doesn’t have to include a cruise or a week-long vacation someplace fancy. While family travel is an incredible experience, there’s also so much magic that you can create right in your own home and yard during the summer.

It’s even fun to make a little backyard bucket list for the kids. Water balloon fight, anyone?

I hope you have the best summer ever, and be sure to reach for the Clorox® Regular-Bleach2 to take care of all the happy messes you make in the process. #CloroxMeansClean
