Hi, I'm Sarah.
Join me in keeping on and beginning again!

FREE ePantry Cleaning Products for You Plus a $130 Cleaning Supplies GIVEAWAY! UPDATED with Winners!

UPDATE! This giveaway is now over and the winners are listed below!

You know what’s great? Not having to think about buying cleaning supplies.

This always happens to me: I will go to run the dishwasher or dust my table (yes, I actually dust), or clean something, and I’m out of what I need. I just don’t pay attention to details, you know, like seeing when something is low. Maybe I subconsciously ignore it. I don’t know, but here’s the thing, I still need to clean, which means I still need cleaning products. Now, this might come as a shock to you (it’s coming as one for me), but today I am actually a bit giddy about cleaning supplies.

Yes I am! And I’ll tell you why!

I have had the pleasure of working with ePantry, an online store where you can get all of the best (and environmentally safe) cleaning products for less than what you would pay at the grocery store. In fact, according to ePantry, shoppers are saving 26% compared to what they were spending at their grocery store. And here’s the best part: you get the products every 60 days (or whenever you need them). This is brilliant for those of us who like to save money and not have to worry about running out of cleaning supplies.


And we’re talking about the good brands. You know, Like Method. I swoon for method. Especially the almond scent. LOVE.


ePantry offers products from Method, Mrs. Meyers, Seventh Generation and more!

How Does ePantry Work?

It’s simple and quick. You create an account and then, based on your answers to a few questions, pick the brands you like, and ePantry will help you figure out what and how much of a product you need. No worries if you don’t like their suggestions, you can make changes. It takes about 5 minutes.

There are no lock-ins, fees or anything else. You can cancel, change products or anything else you want at anytime!

Once you’re set up, you’re good to go!

  • Jess

    I struggle with the laundry–not because it’s difficult but because the washer and dryers in the basement, its cold, my toddler is mischievous if I away for a few minutes ;), and carrying the basket down 2 flights is a pain. Lazy, I know πŸ˜›

  • Kathy DeFilippo

    Using these products will definitely life my mood when I clean.

    • Sarah Mae

      Great question. I’m guessing no…

  • Amber

    I have a hard time keeping the kitchen floors clean. Even when I mop, there is always something stuck to the floor. So the kitchen is my least favorite place to clean.

  • Kara Garis

    Bathroom floor… I have two little boys… gross gross gross

  • Stephanie (MomKaboodle)

    Decluttering seems to be our biggest issue. That, and putting things away….aaahhhhh!!!!

  • KimQuinn

    I absolutely struggle with our shower doors. They are glass and the water spots just WON’T come off. I tried being eco and then I tried asphyxiating myself. Nothing has worked so far but I still have two more products to go. Yes and my pocketbook is not happy.

  • Kerri

    Kitchen and bathroom floors….not a big fan of the mop

  • Donna S

    I can’t keep up with vacuuming or mopping right now. Where does all this dirt come from?? This would be a super prize for us to win and have when we move back to the States!!

  • Crystal Aguilar

    The small corner of my kitchen counter that I pile up with junk mail and random papers. I have the worst time keeping it clean and organized despite my best efforts. That and my entry way closet! It’s usually pretty bad but at least I can close the door on that mess πŸ˜‰

  • KimFunk

    I struggle with all the cleaning. Thank heavens I have an empty nest now.

  • LeAnne Stadler

    I just struggle with keeping it all done. I have to make myself do even the most mundane things. But I’m getting better.

    I struggle with the laundry!

    I hate that the things that I clean never stay that way!

    The continual reoccurrence of dust πŸ™‚

    The area in between the garage and kitchen – I can’t seem to keep it organized!!!

    I struggle with cleaning the tubs/showers. And vacuuming stairs.

    Bathrooms are my least favorite to clean, especially with kids!

  • Kelly K

    The wood floor and my bathroom floors. I always forget about them!

  • Heather

    The shower… It needs cleaning right now…

  • Jennifer in NE FL

    I truly struggle with cleaning my whole house. I have 2 cats and overall just seem overwhelmed with cleaning as I can’t seem to get ahead of the dirt from 2 adults and 2 cats…

  • Carrie D

    The toilets and the kitchen floor!

  • mary

    umm….pretty much all of it! Transitioning from being a homeschooling mom to a single working mom has not helped my house stay very clean! It’s a process to figure out what works for me and my schedule, what works for my kids, what’s important and what can wait.

  • Krystal

    Honestly, everything. If I had to pick one area it would be the floor.

  • ldroll

    I feel all alone with my house cleaning. I have 2 almost grown boys and a grown husband, two cats, and two dogs. My house is always a mess. I have a full time job as well. I would like some free time!

  • Amanda Medford

    I struggle most with bathrooms. But all of it feels challenging with 4 little ones and homeschooling.

  • Melanie

    I have such a tough time with bathrooms. I avoid them until they get super dirty and then hate cleaning them!

  • Beverly Steele

    I struggle with cleaning period!… But the shower and too-small-kitchen seem to be the toughest to stay on top of…

  • Whitney

    I struggled with the laundry!

  • Tammie

    I struggle with the floors. Hardwood is so hard to keep clean.

  • Rachael Glavin Loucks

    Nasty toilets…

  • KM

    My kitchen floor!!! Mopping specifically. It just never seems to gets done.

  • Rachel B

    I struggle to keep the bathrooms clean…it just seems that as soon as I clean them, they’re dirty again.

  • EL Thiele

    Mopping. Mopping is the bane of my existence.

  • Adriana

    I find it hard to do the “deep” cleaning stuff. I do the easy quick stuff. For example, washing floors is tough… we have a dog and he does a pretty good job of cleaning up! πŸ˜‰ I mostly just vacuum up the dog hair and dirt then… so yes, the floors could use a deep cleaning!

  • elkav

    I struggle with keeping a clear surface. Oh sure scrubbing toilets or floors is no fun but it is *important* for me to have a clear surface and they just seem to be catchalls for paper and keys and stuff.

  • Leslie

    Deep cleaning in the bathrooms.

  • Kristin

    I struggle with floods of paper piles! Between bills, kids creations, work material, and homeschooling–I’m drowning! πŸ™‚

  • While On This Side

    mopping. I sweep everyday… but I hardly mop. please, somebody tell me I am not alone. haha!

  • Amy B

    I don’t care much for vacuuming or sweeping, but I have an almost-crawling baby so I need to step up my game! πŸ™‚

  • Mandy

    I struggle with ALL of it πŸ™‚ I have a 2 year old tornado who likes to mess something up as I am cleaning something else. Dishes in the sink, papers on the table, and laundry on the couch!

  • Jo

    Homeschooling our six kids makes our house very “lived in.” The toughest part of cleaning is toddlers following behind me, undoing whatever I’ve just done πŸ˜‰ But serious… it’s hard to keep my own room clean – it’s the least priority most of the time. Second to that would be the kitchen because it’s in constant use.

  • Amy Rose

    Dishes! I hate washing dishes. I would hire someone to do only that if I could afford it.

  • angiekerr

    Laundry hands down!!

  • Cindy

    Homeschooling 6 of our 7 kids leaves for many messes often my biggest challenge is keeping our floors clean we have tile throughout downstairs and it is a huge chore that and my room always seems to take a back seat to all other areas πŸ™

  • Lauren

    Um… Everything! But ok, mostly the bathroom floors and tub are most difficult for me to come to terms with.

  • JessicaC

    just doing it!! Also my energy levels…=(

  • Amanda Andrews

    I struggle with keeping up with my messy furry pets and all of their messes!

  • Summer Wallaert

    Wow, that almond wood floor polish makes me wish I had wood floors, lol! Cleaning is not my favorite, but I DO love to sit at a crumb-free table with a crumb-free floor under my feet sipping a cup of tea at naptime…one of my fave things! So I guess I have to put up with the cleaning, and fun products do make it a little more fun. πŸ˜‰

  • Cheryl Simpson

    I struggle making a routine that sticks. I can set high goals and a routine to get it all done, and then I get off track.

  • Hope

    I struggle most with having a general cleaning schedule and sticking to it! Excited for 31 days to clean so that I can start with a ‘clean’ slate with my cleaning schedule! πŸ™‚

  • Landy

    I struggle with keeping my floor mopped!!

  • L Helt

    What part don’t I struggle with? πŸ˜› I have a paper problem, I keep everything, just in case…

  • Naomi

    The kitchen. It gets dirty too fast.

  • SB

    Umm…I struggle with all of it?!?!?
    I wish I was one of those neat, clean, organized types…but, alas, I’m not…I’m totally unorganized & messy. I am working on it though, slowly. πŸ™‚

  • Heidi K

    I struggle a lot with figuring out when to clean. And staying organized. The clutter gets everywhere.

  • Suzi Giglio Fabry

    I struggle most with laundry!!!

    Have you heard of Norwex? That’s what I use to clean. Last Feb. they had a special where you could sign up to sell it for free and then receive a bunch of free product, so I did. It was the best choice…the EnviroCloth, the Superior Mop and the Dust Mitt have changed my life. I clean everything with just water-no harmful chemicals.

    • Suzi Giglio Fabry

      Just to clarify, I would still be happy to win this though.:) If I won there are six things I wouldn’t need to use but I would give them to somebody who would.:) The fabric softener, dryer sheets, bathroom cleaner, all purpose spray, wood floor cleaner and the shower spray.

  • Sarah D.

    dishes, laundry, and everything else

  • Sylvia

    Everything! Bathrooms πŸ™

  • Amy Ivey

    I don’t struggle with any room in particular, but with getting started and procrastination…oh, and getting distracted!

  • Sarah


  • Stephanie M

    Seriously, I struggle to stay motivated when it comes to cleaning. The kitchen is my most challenging area, next to just plain clutter.

  • Joyce (and Norm)

    The kitchen!

  • Amy

    My floors…Clean and then spill. How did you guess we have little ones? I would love to try that floor cleaner. Thanks for sharing about it!!

  • Sarah

    ePantry is great! So glad you partnered with them for this!

    • Sarah

      Hit “send” too soon! Getting laundry 100% completed is my struggle- especially getting it all put away!

  • Melanie

    This looks wonderful! I struggle most with the deep cleaning areas-they require so much elbow grease in an older home! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Kimberly Renee Holderman

    The floors. I’m also just not good at making time for certain jobs!!

  • Jane

    I struggle with putting laundry away

  • Sue

    I’m disorganized in cleaning. One area sparkles the other is dirty. I’m always trying to keep up. I guess my struggle is how to get a mostly clean home without spending all my day cleaning.

  • Jodi

    My biggest “slacker zone” is scrubbing my shower. Of course my children’s bathroom will sparkle but for some reason I really get lazy in the master bathroom. I gotta work on that!

  • Beverly White Campbell

    Keeping up with the clutter so I can clean.

  • Crystal

    I love my old wooden floors, but I like them to look clean, and that’s kind of hard in the kitchen!! So, that almond floor cleaner sounds nice!!

  • Jessica

    the clutter…. it doesn’t bother me but drives my hubby CRAZY!

  • Erica C.

    This would be perfect to win! I am trying my best to stay on top of cleaning…with 3 kids, a family of 5 it can be so overwhelming! Thanks for this offer!!!!

    • Erica C.

      I struggle most with keeping up with laundry! And we don’t have a dishwasher so it feels like there is constantly dirty dishes piled in the sink! We actually just put away all the extra dishes and silverware so we each have one plate, bowl, fork, knife & spoon each. Desperate times call for desperate measures!

  • Karen

    It’s hard for me to clean around all the clutter and disorganized piles.

  • Kate O

    I struggle with mopping and cleaning windows.

  • Juliann

    Bedrooms! Keeping the open areas clutter free sometimes means shoving it all in the bedrooms, especially mine!

  • Tressa M

    I struggle with the things that aren’t “everyday.” Dishes & laundry get done, and the main floor area swept, but dusting, vacuuming bedrooms, baseboards, windows…those are the things I slack on!

  • Stephanie

    I always seem to have dusty ceiling fans and dirty baseboards!

  • Allison

    I have trouble with all of it! And I’m out of laundry and dishwashing detergent! Agh!!

  • Cassie DeLapp

    Keeping the tub clean is one of my biggest struggles.

  • Marcie

    Biggest cleaning struggle–floors! Sweeping/vacuuming isn’t so bad but mopping. Oh, I despise mopping. I like the results, just can’t seem to get sweeping and mopping done together at any one time.

  • Shannon

    I struggle with the deep cleaning and maintaining of “stuff”.

  • Krista

    Ugh. I struggle with all cleaning really, but bathrooms and mopping are the absolute worst!!

  • Joy C.

    I struggle with “hot spots” – the areas where it’s easy just to toss the stuff you don’t know what to do with. And the chaos makes me crazy!

  • Heather Nations

    Main struggle is anything that is constant like dishes and laundry! I haven’t moved past that to struggle with more detailed things

  • Lisag

    The kitchen floor–with 4 little boys, they are always a mess!

  • Katrina Lee

    All of the flat surfaces in my house! Can’t dust when you can’t see them (two sweet kids and a loving hubs helps with the clutter!)

  • Susan Somers

    Clutter! Which impedes cleaning everything else!

  • 3Sweetpeas

    Clutter is my downfall!

  • Cathy

    Mine is my garage that has become over cluttered.

  • Erin

    Clutter. And, also finding joy in the mundane things that have to be done over & over again (hello, laundry & dishes) – tasks that are never “done” drive me crazy.

  • Misty Krasawski

    This is awesome, and I can’t wait for my first ePantry order–woohoo! I wish someone would create a dryer which also folded.
    Oh, and put the clothes away! πŸ™‚

    • Sarah Mae

      Dude. AMEN TO THAT.

  • Carol Chastain

    Laundry is the hardest for me

  • stephanie


  • Kelly G


  • allsimpleblessings

    Excited to start cleaning! I struggle most with paper clutter! Going to place an order this morning!

  • Carrie b

    I’m gonna try this e pantry thing out! I am looking forward to reading your book! I need all the cleaning help I can get! I followed you on insta as henrica88,

  • Carrie b

    The dishes though!! Hate it!

  • Penny

    I struggle most with just getting anything done. Right now it’s paper organization & filing.

  • seasonsofopportunities

    I don’t dust often enough, and I do not enjoy putting away laundry or dishes. I dont mind washing them though. Thanks for the giveaway!! So excited.

  • Tanya

    Dishes are the worst! Thanks for this opportunity.

  • Martha

    Woot woot for cleaning products!

  • Debbie Wenger

    I’m actually good with cleaning (I’m one of those people who enjoys it) BUT I don’t keep up with cleaning the tubs or actually mopping (I sweep a ton but don’t always mop).

  • Corri

    I despise dusting! Thankfully my 7 year old daughter thinks it is so much fun. I’m not sure how long she will think this, but it is about the only way things get dusted around here!

  • JessiD

    Dishes…laundry…toilets…floors…dusting…organizing… yeah, pretty much all of it seems to be the bane of my existence! I wish I had more Martha in me (plenty of Mary!)

  • MichelleH

    My biggest problem area is the kids’ bathroom. Because UGH! Three kids, none of which claim any responsibility for any of the mess, even when it’s obviously theirs, say their Tshirt on the floor. All three have a weird medical condition that causes them to go blind when they enter their bathroom and miraculously regain their sight when they leave it. That’s the only explanation for not noticing how nasty it is in there, right? πŸ˜‰

  • Kelly K

    My floors are the death of me. With little ones, I can’t keep up with all the food they throw on the floor, stuff they spill, crumbs that fall, etc etc. I also can’t stand….anything else cleaning related. But I love the feeling of when things are actually clean…which is like…maybe…almost never? I don’t even know. AH! help. me.

  • Becky R

    I already use epantry so I don’t think I’m eligible for the $10 off but I bought the book and look forward to this challenge!

  • sarah

    I struggle with keeping my kitchen floor clean. We have gross old laminate in our kitchen.

  • Sherry Lochner

    Our textured linoleum in kitchen, dining, and 3 bathrooms

  • Katherine

    The bathrooms. It doesn’t actually take too long to clean them, but I have such a mental block about it.

  • Tiffany Mark

    putting clothes away! Mine only really. They get shifted from bed to chair to floor and my room is always a mess because of it. And papers. How do people stay on top of all the papers that come in to their home!

  • Angie Wachendorf

    I am rare…I am someone who does not mind cleaning. It is therapeutic! I do have my challenges though…I loathe ironing and I have a Newfie (large furry and drooly beast) who makes keeping tidy a challenge.

  • sandi

    awesome giveaway!

  • Tanya

    Exciting giveaway!

  • Shannon L Wedge

    I love ePantry!

  • Jessica Locklear

    I struggle with keeping on top of the dishes. It’s so easy to let it go just a little, & then suddenly have a gigantic pile to do!

  • Morgan Escalon

    Can’t wait to start reading the book, I just love your blog!

  • Alisa Harvey

    One area?!? Um… getting started!

  • phoward336

    Great contest – thanks! I struggle with just keeping up with it!

  • Beth

    One area. . .hmmm. The kitchen the most. Then the bathroom and the bedrooms and the laundry. . .

  • Mindy Gardner

    The whole house. I HATE to clean….like a passionate, loathing kind of hate.

  • Brandi Nabors

    I definitely struggle with cleaning the shower and mopping the kitchen…ugh. hahaha! Thanks for the great giveaway Sarah Mae!

  • Michelle Clevenger

    My struggle is just being consistent with cleaning… and I share your love of Method Almond scent! LOVE it!

  • Hillary Evans Empfield

    Laundry. Laundry is my nightmare. I don’t mind washing, drying and folding. It’s the putting away that’s the big problem. It never seems to find it’s way to the drawers.

  • Danica Middlebrook

    We just moved so we are still getting settled and I am struggling with getting back into a routine (and finding a new routine for cleaning). Keeping up with my kitchen and main area where we eat daily is a big struggle with littles (and being tired at the end of the day).

  • Italian Mama Chef

    My struggle is the clutter everyone leaves around the house when it’s time to clean. Nothing ever gets fully put away. I also do not know how to schedule regular maintenance cleaning. It’s not something I was taught.

  • Jeniffer Sheriff Smith

    Laundry. Yuck. (Actually, picking up messes too, but my neat freak hubby helps with that.)

  • Christina Ollis Angelo

    i struggle the most with the bathroom! so gross!

  • Heidi

    I have a love/hate relationship with my wood floors!!

  • Ellie Augustin

    For me it’s getting my kitchen in order. No matter how much I think I’ve cleared and cleaned it just ends up crazy all over again!

  • Sarah Sanders

    We are moving to a house three times the size of our current home (a huge God-blessing!) and it’s full of gorgeous original hardwood floors-I’m excited to try some new products that will hopefully help me find an effective new cleaning routine! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  • Kathleen

    Everything! I get so little time to myself and have never liked to clean that cleaning feels kind of like a punishment and like it’s keeping me from doing things I’d enjoy doing.

  • Mindy at Grateful for Grace

    My room, actually. It’s the “dumping ground” for so stinkin’ much.

  • Nelly

    Looks like a neat idea and I love the mop and squeeze product, it would easy for a kids to use!

  • Ruth

    This is awesome Sarah Mae! I can’t wait to get my home clean!!!

  • Heather E.

    I struggle the most with clutter… homeschool clutter, mail clutter, bills clutter, things to do clutter, etc.

  • Allison

    I struggle most with cleaning the bathrooms. They’re by far my least favorite chore, so I procrastinate with that more than anything else. Having some new products to try would help!

  • julianneh

    I struggle with cleaning bathrooms and any deep cleaning.

  • HS kraftmaking

    I struggle most with the laundry.

  • Jen Mc

    the bathroom …… laundry close behind πŸ˜‰

  • Shannon

    Definitely struggle with the bathrooms, especially having 5 boys in the house! Thanks for this terrific giveaway!

  • Evangelita Brown

    I struggle most is bedrooms and papers.

  • Sharon

    My struggle is DEEP cleaning. I just hate doing it. So excited though…for the next 31 days! And for my epantry order to arrive!! Thanks Sarah Mae

  • Michele

    Amen! These cleaning products are wonderful! I HATE cleaning the shower :/

  • Laura

    Ugh – dishes and keeping the kitchen clean are my #1 struggle!

  • grace

    Bathrooms ….hate doing it especially to keep up with them. Thanks for the chance.

  • Kristal Woods

    Ummmm…all of it. I hate cleaning. I think dishes are my least favorite, though.

  • Laura

    I love epantry! Great customer service!

  • Guest

    This is an awesome giveaway! Thanks Sarah Mae!

  • Paige Y.

    I struggle with keeping up with a schedule for cleaning….then things get out of control! Thanks for the giveaway Sarah Mae!

  • Laura Merrill

    We just moved to a new house in June while I was pregnant and with 2 little boys. It is now January and I am still not unpacked. To be quite frank with you, my newborn’s clothes are in a diaper box in my room and most of our clothes stay in the laundry room! This challenge could not have come at a better time! My most hated part of cleaning would be putting things away. Hence why I am still packed in boxes 8 months later!

  • Ashley

    I HATE washing sheets, changing sheets, and folding sheets!

  • Meghan

    The shower and toilet are my least favorite, sometimes I ignore them. Dusting, dishes, sweeping, and vacuuming are more therapeutic and fun for me.

  • Robyn

    I do not like cleaning the bathroom! But my husband does a great job, so I regularly enlist his help. πŸ™‚

  • Deidre Lake

    Hi there. I know that I need to clean and have such a difficult time getting it done. I lack motivation and find myself easily distracted when I do attempt to clean. Perhaps a basket full of awesome cleaning tools could be the catalyst that is needed. Anyway, I enjoyed the blog and plan to subscribe. I don’t do any social media.

  • SarahB

    I have the teenagers clean the bathrooms because I dislike them so much!

  • MamaOmuss

    I dislike cleaning the bathroom. YUCK!

  • Marilee

    I don’t struggle with the bathroom, I just don’t like doing it. And it doesn’t take that much time to clean it.

  • Katie

    I have a hard time keeping things clear and free of clutter

  • Jennifer Z

    Definitely the bathrooms, especially showers and tubs. Arg!!

  • Julie Gambino Wise

    My bedroom! It’s a cluttered, dusty catch-all!

  • Leah T.

    The bathroom for sure!

  • Heidi


  • Amy Lucas

    Keep up with sweeping – my whole house is hardwood floors!

  • Allison


  • KPep

    I have the hardest time with the floors…I always like to do them last…which means I never get to them!

  • Megan

    I struggle with keeping my room clean. It’s the last room people NEED to be in when I have visitors in my homes. It’s so easy just to shove everything in there and lock the door.

  • Maddie

    I’m sad, this isn’t available in Canada. πŸ™ I’ll still work on my cleaning though!!

  • Kim

    I struggle with keeping up the kids bathroom. It always seems to have towels and stuff all over the counters, which drives me crazy:)

  • SaraR

    Bathrooms. Mainly the tub. It usually gets to the point when I realize the squalor which we’re in and then it finally gets cleaned. It’s gross really.

  • Erica

    Dusting. I hate it.

  • Sarah

    Mopping!!!!!!!!! I despise mopping above any other household chore. I think that’s because the floors get dirty so fast; it always feels fruitless.

  • Sarah Force

    I LOATHE laundry! and bathrooms is a pretty close second.

  • laz

    Cleaning the floor is a constant challenge due to our wood stove debris becoming scattered around the house and toddler preschool and school age foot traffic daily.

  • Kimberly Teller

    dishes. yuck. better with a dishwasher, but, even so.

  • Abbie

    The organizing and pick up of used items from toys to mail….ends up pilling up and cluttering – hate it and hoping this 31 challenge will help

  • Samantha

    Dishes and Toilet cleaning! I absolutely can’t stand doing them! Thanks for the introduction to epantry! I am anxiously waiting for my first order!

  • Amy S

    I hate taking care of laundry, absolutely hate it. My clothes will pile up in baskets, clean and wrinkly.

  • Stacey E

    I don’t know if I can pick just one! Bathrooms, dusting and the ever-dreaded piles of mail/papers/magazines that I seem to create.

  • Tamboliya

    Where do I struggle with cleaning? Should I dare say ALL of it?! Specifically: washing dishes by hand (uggh), scrubbing laundry stains that have sat there for a millenia b/c I have avoided it, paper clutter, changing bed sheets (I have the hardest time trying to get the corners to stay on; it’d be easier if there was an extra set of hands to help stretch them to keep them from popping off!), mopping floor, sweeping and vacuuming kitty litter dust b/c all it does it kick it up in the air and I breathe it in and cough, dusting (I hate moving all those millions of nic nacs off and back on the shelves again (pain in the butt), scrubbing the tub, etc. (too many to name).

  • Lesa Brackbill

    Right now, with a 5.5 month old who is struggling with reflux, I struggle with it ALL.

  • Michele Thomas Bellinder

    I struggle with a plan to cover my whole house……seems like a lot of hit or misses. I get tired out and it seems like I just started.

  • noa


  • Erin Lehman

    Hm… It seems I go in spurts and have trouble with the daily upkeep. The floors are hard for me to get motivated to do. (Although a wood floor cleaner in almond scent may help… wink, wink)…

  • Amy Orvin

    I really struggle with dusting and cleaning windows. I just don’t like doing that.

  • Janeen Breyman

    I love clean mini blinds, but don’t like doing the work.

  • Darcey Zahaykevich

    I have trouble with all of it. There is so much to do that I run around from room to room just getting the essentials done. Then the house becomes a mess.

  • Kala

    Oh I struggle with everything, especially with finding the time with homeschooling the kids

  • Stephanie K

    All the extras that are easy to forget about – baseboards, windows, blinds…..I keep up with the big and basic stuff like bathrooms, vacuuming, laundry, dishes. But all those extras…. who really remembers to dust their ceiling fan? I think about it every 2 years and by then it’s got several inches of dust!!

  • Jen L.

    I struggle with getting started. I never know what to start on first, and I get easily overwhelmed!

  • Jenn

    I struggle with cleaning the laundry room! It gets so dirty and I hate going into the cold basement to clean it!

  • Debbie

    Keeping the bathrooms clean….especially the master…maybe because no one but my husband and I see it!

  • Lori P

    I hate dusting. I know…it’s not very difficult and there is not a lot to it, but I really don’t like doing it.

  • Hope

    General tidiness. I love everything put away…but limited space + seven people means this isn’t the usual state of our home. So a balance and patience is needed so that I don’t go crazy! I love shining my sink. Not the bathtub so much. πŸ˜‰

  • Michelle

    We have hard water and I feel like I’m always battling build up in the bathtub!

  • Julie

    Great products! Thank you for the chance! πŸ™‚

  • Margaret

    Ahhh. The thought of a clean house. I read a head and where I struggle most is in keeping too much stuff. Looking forward to lighten the load.

  • Elizabeth Sadosky

    I would say laundry…but I really struggle with cleaning ADD! I have so much trouble focusing so I rarely can finish a room!

  • Brandae Filla


  • Kelly M.

    The kitches is tough for .me to keep clean. My family just keeps wanting meals!

  • Rhea W.

    I really struggling keeping our laundry under control!

  • Randall y Raquel Beita

    Everything! Seems like I spend a ton of time picking up and cleaning every day. The bathrooms and floors drive me crazy as the day after I clean/mop looks like it hasn’t been done for a week!

  • Katrina T

    I am working on not being a clutter bug, but what I really struggle with is finding motivation to do the dishes!

  • Lynsie

    Dishes and everyday clutter

  • Julianne

    I struggle most with my kitchen, but honestly, with six kids, two dogs, and a cat, it’s quite a chore keeping all of my house clean. I primarily focus on the kitchen and bathrooms and try to delegate the rest to my kids.

  • Lisa Kennedy

    Laundry is my greatest challenge. It seems that there is always a never ending pile waiting to be washed.

  • Alisha

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Lindsay

    Mopping has always been my least favorite, but recently I got a Shark steam mop and LOVE IT! So easy now!

  • luckysdaisy

    Mail and clutter piles. Once they start they grow fast! And anything deep. Just cleaned behind my oven for the first time in forever (and yes, I hear the frozen music in my head when I wrote that).

  • Crystal Stephenson Malenofski

    I struggle with cleaning the floors. I have a really hard time sweeping, mopping and vaccuuming – once all the stuff is picked up I’m done!!

  • Jessica

    dusting and showers/tubs! I’m all about making sure germs are gone on countertops, bathrooms, etc but its hard to clean everything else too when you’re so busy!

  • Tara

    I struggle with the bathrooms. I keep the house pretty well picked up. But *clean* … that’s a different story.

  • Beth

    My least favorite area to clean is the shower! πŸ™‚

  • Bonnie

    I do not like cleaning the fridge!

  • Jennifer Bonk

    I would say floors and the NEVER ENDING CYCLE OF LAUNDRY.. All boys in my house (4 total), including 2 large & 1 small dog and 1 cat. It’s rather difficult to stay on top of keeping these floors as spic & span as I would like. :-/
    Bought 31 days to clean last year & the revised version this year. Very excited to get on board with this!! Looking forward for my ePantry order to get here!! Thanks Sarah!

  • Beth

    Keeping our laundry room cleaned up.. It seems like the dust is never-ending, and I don’t like cleaning up in there very much :/

  • Jenny

    Just keeping on top of it…

  • Heather

    Alright I’m in, I need some motivation to get this disaster cleaned up

  • Jennifer Bonk

  • Jen Siegrist

    Loved Desperate. Great timing on the 31 day challenge. I need to clean!

  • Kimberly

    My paper piles! It seems like I will just get everything filed, sorted, thrown out etc., and the clutter is back again within a day or two! Kimberly

  • Kate

    Dishes. Have learned to not loath them, but still don’t get them done in a timely manner and that’s the crux of the issue.

  • Karen a.

    My kitchen floor!! Aghhhh!

  • Annie

    Hmmmmm. I struggle with breaking it down into small enough chunks so I don’t feel overwhelmed. Lately I use the 5 min timer method. I can get so much more done in 5 min than I thought and it’s kind of fun.

  • Molly

    Floors! I can vacuum but mopping is the bane of my existence. And with two young children and two long haired cats they seem to get dirty faster than I can keep them clean. And did I mention that my house is fully hard wood? No carpet. It’s a blessing and a curse.

    PS. Just ordered the revised book. Starting on day 1 today!

  • Lemonadelucy

    Paper and clutter!!

  • Chelbie

    This is awesome! What a great way to start the new year – with a clean house! I love having a clean home, but struggle with keeping my priorities balanced with what to clean. I have 3 littles and so I simply can’t do it all everyday, though I’ve tried (it just makes me crazy). I think dishes and laundry are the hardest because they are never ending ha :). I’m actually starting a small mom’s Bible study at my home tomorrow morning we’re reading Sally Clarkson’s new book Own Your Life – I’m so excited, but anyway it would be great to have cleaning supplies to help me keep my home clean while hosting mamas and babies each week. Thank you for this giveaway!! -Chelbie

  • RJ

    Getting time for the deep cleaning is my struggle!

  • Danell M

    Pretty much everything is behind right now, with a two-month old in the house (and three older kiddos), I don’t get a lot of housework done… but I would love to keep up with the laundry/folding and dishes!

  • Kelli

    Um, everything! It feels so overwhelming sometimes, especially when the clutter takes over! I think getting on top of the clutter help me to be more motivated to clean and deep clean.

  • Rachel

    I have 3 children and the oldest is just 8yrs old so you can imagine the traffic lol
    Paper clutter!!!

  • Kayla

    I really struggle with keeping dog hair at bay.. it seems like I get the floors taken care of, and then I’m swamped with another part of my house covered in dog hair!

  • Elisha

    I struggle most with laundry and vacuuming. I just never can get to those ones!

  • Katie

    I struggle with keeping up with the kids toys and then their messes. Some days I just don’t feel like picking them up when I know they are going to do it again, but if I don’t then I find some nasty mess under there, like maybe a hidden snack from the toddler.

  • Rust

    Ceiling fans and blinds, my two most avoided cleaning tasks.

  • Ashley Schulte

    This looks awesome! I think I’m gonna have to give them a try:)

  • Jenny Martin

    All of it?

    No really–I hate bathrooms…and sweeping!

  • Danielle

    I struggle with the floors the most. I’m always sweeping them (hardwoods) but finding the time to mop, not so much.

  • Anastasia Safee

    Bathrooms, with 3 males in the house, they always need to be cleaned.

  • Courtney

    I most struggle with consistency and cleaning schedule!

  • Emily

    Consistency! I can clean my house and even involve my kids in the process, then three days later it’s at disaster level. I really desire to have a great maintenance schedule we can stick with so we never get to the disaster point. πŸ™‚

  • LLTwinsMama

    The area I most struggle with…my bathroom. Mainly the shower. Ugh…the shower. It’s never been my favorite thing, but especially now after being married…the bathroom has tile. Someday it will be redone and it will NOT have tile….

    I have four kids and work full time at their school. I struggle with finding time to keep the laundry done and and the house uncluttered!

  • Dan Miller

    I love bathrooms, but I struggle with dusting.

  • Diane Shiffer

    Hmmm…, Does putting my clothes away count as cleaning? I always put them on my chair because… yanno, I’m going to put th away *soon.* But them I forget and I walk past that chair a thousand times and I just stop seeing somehow. Eek.

  • AJDanko

  • Leah

    Clutter-which I am working on!

  • Shelbey Kendall

    Motivation to do so. I love the smell of natural cleaners and my kitchen is always half way clean. Getting the clutter all sorted away is one of the most difficult challenges so I can actually clean!

  • Dwight-Elizabeth Bailey

    Dishes are my weakness. They pile up SO quickly! And I can never get caught up. πŸ™‚

    So I’m thankful that we obviously have lots of yummy food to eat!

  • Paige

    I’m just getting into switching over to more natural cleaners, so having these products delivered to my door would be awesome!

    Kinda bummed. Placed my order and was looking forward to having them by the end of the week, but it says it will arrive on 1/29!!
