Staging Your House to Sell with a 15 Minute Renovation {#15MINRENO}

We’re in the process of selling our home, and if you’re in the same boat I don’t need to tell you how stressful it is…especially with little ones around.

You clean, they make a mess. You clean up the mess, they make more of a mess.

Whether it’s wiping down sticky fingers from walls and appliances to mopping up spilt milk or cookie crumbs. It’s a never-ending cycle that can test anyone’s patience.

Sure the toy clutter is one thing you’ll also have to tackle constantly, but what really gets to me is finding a way to keep the house spotless given only a moment’s notice before a showing.

That’s why now that our house is on the market, I’m all about quick and easy ways to stage our home to get that flawless appearance.

Anytime we have to prep our home for a potential buyer, I always try to focus on the areas that typically sell a home: the kitchen and living space.

One of my go-to tools for making this a reality is Mr. Clean’s Magic Eraser!

So I was super excited to learn about their concentrated Multi-Surface Cleaner that is ideal for getting an even cleaner effect for those of us looking for a 15-minute renovation…because really, I can’t be bothered to spend much more than that these days.

First things first, a kitchen is typically what sells a home. So it’s definitely one room in the house we wanted to accentuate. Even though most of the appliances in the kitchen are only a few years old, the wear and tear of having little ones around can really take a toll. Finger prints, streak marks and sticky residue always cover our fridge and trash can, so having the concentrated cleaner gives us that brand new look.before/after clean fridge

This before picture is pretty gross, but it’s amazing how much better our trash bin looked after a little elbow grease with that magic eraser.trash before

I always use Mr. Clean erasers on my walls to wash away the colorful artwork my 3 year-old likes to leave behind…I never really thought about using it on the floors. But I’m so glad I did:

Tile or wood floors can become dull and underwhelming over time, but Mr. Clean Concentrated Multi-Surface Cleaner can get them shining like new again! I was really impressed at how much better our kitchen floor looked after.dirty floor

I’ve been a long-time fan of Mr. Clean – but never realized how much a difference the cleaning products made all over the house. I love how fresh and clean my kitchen looks!

  15. Magic eraser is amazing! All the appliances at home are made of stainless steel and they look dirty with stains of greasy fingers on them! I hate this and I have to go around and clean them so they don’t have these annoying stains! I also have tiles in the kitchen so the eraser will do a great job for me! Thank you for sharing! 🙂 I have a dog and two kids so I need to know about every solution that will make the cleaning easier for me! 🙂

  16. I’m not in the process of selling my house but the tips you shared here were wonderful! Thanks!
