Mr. Clean cleans up Times Square!! #NewYearsClean

Disclosure: This is a compensated post on behalf of Mr. Clean. All opinions are my own. 

On New Year's Day, Mr. Clean introduced a new multi-purpose cleaner at Times Square in New York City! Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle was there on the spot to help clean up one of the world's biggest parties! I can only imagine the mess left after such a great event!

On hand was Julie Edelman, lifestyle and cleaning expert, from the Accidental Housewife! She was there not only to clean but lend her expertise. Julie along with a 25-person "Mr. Clean Team" ushered in a clean 2014. Their effort assisted the massive clean-up by the Times Square Alliance and the DSNY who used 22 trucks, 24 mechanical sweepers and 37 backpack blowers that had to clean an estimated 40 to 50 tons of confetti, party hats and other materials from the celebration in 2013.

Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle has 2.5 times more power in every drop. It penetrates dirt easier and lifts stains faster, while the auto-stop cap makes sure that no drop goes to waste. I love this. I already use Mr. Clean at my house when I clean. My grandmother used it, my mom used it and I use it now. It works!

I am excited for this new product. If this can clean Times Square, maybe it can get my bathrooms clean as well. It is also nice to see all these great people helping out and getting Times Square clean after the New Year! I wish they would come over to my house and do the same thing!

To help you get 2014 off to a great start, here are some helpful tips from Julie Edelman for you to use this coming year!
The Top Ten: Tips to Save Time, Money and Your Sanity in 2014 
1. Tackle high traffic zones first: Divide your home into MUST DO and CAN DO LATER zones. The must do’s are bathrooms, kitchen and bedrooms which are bacteria, allergy (dust mites) and germ magnets AND should be cleaned regularly. Can do later zones are areas such as family rooms, guest bedrooms, and hallways.

2. Maintain your sanity, start small: As Oscar Wilde said “Man (and woman!) was made for something better then disturbing dirt.” So put cleaning your home in perspective and don’t allow yourself to get overwhelmed. Start with the smallest room in your home, and work your way to the largest room in order to streamline your cleaning process.

3. Spread out chores that bore: Once you have tidied up, make a weekly TAH–DO LIST (as in The Accidental Housewife!) to keep rooms clean enough. If you follow up on little cleaning projects each week, you’ll be able to maintain a healthy and squeaky clean home, and manicures, all year long.

4. Blend chores that bore into everyday activities: Housework can be boring, so staying focused while doing it can be a chore. ‘Blend’ i.e. ‘work’ tasks into everyday activities and routines. Next time you’re chatting on the phone with your BF or mom, chat while cleaning countertops, door handles and sinks.

5. Save your NRG: Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle can handle anything, especially if it can clean up Times Square after New Year’s Eve! Save your elbow grease and simply squirt a drop of the powerful new formula onto countertops, appliances and more to clean up after your own New Year’s Eve party.

6. Streamline your cleaning tools with multi-taskers: There’s no need to have countless cleaning products clogging cabinets. Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle can be used directly on tough dirt or used as a dilute to handle big or small messes on hard surfaces such as tables, countertops, sinks, stoves and even floors.

7. Take the guess work out of "How Much":  Thanks to its innovative one-dose cap, Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle delivers the perfect amount of cleaning gel with every squeeze – that can be applied directly to surfaces or diluted in water as a cleaning solution. Similar to tasks like dishwashing and laundry, buy single, pre-measured packets. This will certainly help you prevent wasting product and in the end, also save you money! 
8. Dance with dust bunnies: No one said that you have to make cleaning a chore, so put on those headphones or crank up the music and dance with your vacuum as you suck up those dust bunnies or wash your floor! It will also turn your cleaning routines into a workout, so you’ll be multi-tasking once again—cleaning and toning your bod!

9. Enlist pint-sized helpers:  If you have young kids, they are perfect for helping with kid-friendly home-keeping chores like vacuuming and laundry. If you don’t have any children, I’m sure friends and family who do will be happy to lend out theirs so they can enjoy an hour or two of free time!

10. Give yourself and I.O.ME!:  Don’t wait for your birthday or Mother’s Day. Give yourself a ‘me day’ or at least a few ‘me’ hours. You’ll be amazed how it will give you a new perspective on that next load of laundry waiting for you!
These are all great tips to follow. I know I will be using some of these this new year. I am also looking forward to trying the new Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle. I love trying new products and this looks to be a good one. Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle is available in four scents:  Febreze Meadows & Rain, Crisp Lemon, Gain Original Fresh Scent and Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle with the Grease Fighting Power of Dawn. You can find Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle at big box stores, grocery stores and other retailers.
