EXTREME SPRING CLEAN WITH ME 2020! DEEP CLEANING MOTIVATION EMILY NORRIS


Hi guys, welcome back to my channel. In today’s
video, I’m going to be spring cleaning for you guys and I hope it gives you so much cleaning
motivation. This is a follow on from my recent deep cleaning videos. So if you haven’t seen
that one, I will link it down below in the description. But there was still more around
my house that desperately needed to be cleaned, so I’m going to do that today. But before
we jump into the clean, I just wanted to come on and say that I hope you guys are all doing
okay and staying as safe as possible at this very difficult time. I cannot believe how much COVID-19 has literally
changed everyone’s lives in the past few days. I have so many friends and family members
that have lost jobs, that have had hours cuts. I’m personally really worried about my grandma
getting this virus. I know so many of us are quarantined and I just hope you’re all okay.
I’m going to try and keep things as positive and as normal, on this channel. But if there’s
anything you guys need or want, please contact me. I think it’s just really hit me today
and I’d actually tried to say this to camera, and I just couldn’t without weeping. So, I
thought I would do it in a voiceover. But, I’m sending you guys loads and loads of love,
and… Yes. Anyway, into the clean. So the first thing that I’m going to clean
today, is my oven. It has been nearly a year since I last cleaned this and it is in need
of a good clean. So the way that I do this, is an all natural cleaner. I used to use loads
of chemical products but they used to hurt my hands. And this actually works really well.
So all I do is mix a cup of bicarbonate of soda with some water, that makes a paste,
which I then put into the oven, leave that to set for about 20 minutes to an hour, however
long you want. And then, I’ll pour some vinegar over top. And it fizzes up, but it works as
a really good cleaner. Also the trays inside my oven, they really need to be cleaned and
the door as well. So I’m going to show you how I take the oven door off and give that
a clean with a glass cleaner as well. So I’ll just start mixing up. I’m going to do about
a cup of the bicarb today. Okay. So once I have my cup of bicarbonate
of soda in a bowl, I’m just going to add a little bit of water and give it a good stir
to make it into a paste as I mentioned. And then wanted to show you what the oven door
is looking like. It’s so very messy inside, you can see all the smears and it’s coming
through now, so that really needs to be cleaned. Also, the trays are pretty disgusting, I must
say. I do use tinfoil from time to time, but it’s really getting quite bad and there are
also so many crumbs in the corners. This is the oven door as I mentioned, just getting
really disgusting and on the inside as well. That’s where I’m going to put the majority
of the paste. Oh a nice chip as well in there. I’m going to try and soak the trays and then
give everything I’ve really good scrub. Okay. So as you can see on my oven, this glass
at the front here is really dirty, it’s dusty, there are smears as well. So you can actually
take the glass out of your oven door. With mine, you have to lift it up and then pull
it out. And now I can properly wash that and then all of the stains on the inside should
hopefully come out and it will look a lot cleaner as well. So as you probably saw there, I just added
in the vinegar and it always fizzes up and has a chemical reaction. And sometimes I’ll
just leave that to sit while I’m cleaning the trays, but actually wasn’t too horrendous
today. So I managed to wipe the oven clean quite soon after. The one thing that I really
struggled with was the oven door. The stains on it were just not coming off, so you probably
saw that I tried washing up liquid. Then I used a little bit of bar keepers friend and
in the end, good old baking soda again did the trick. So I left that on and because it
is so abrasive it really did get the stains off. So that was really good. But now I’m just going to give the trays a
good scrub. These really just needed some elbow grease, so it did take a little bit
of doing. But they are so much cleaner now. So now I’m going to just clean the oven door
again. Because I used the baking soda on it to get the stains off, there were loads of
streaks once it dried, so I’m just using a glass cleaner. But vinegar and water would
work for this as well. And I’m also using my Marigold Squeaky Clean cloth. I love that.
I feel like it never really smears. So I’m just going to put the door back in and then
I’ll show you how much cleaner it’s looking. But I definitely need to wipe down the front
as well. Because I used baking soda, the only thing with that is that you can get some chalky
smears. So I’m just trying to get those off now with the glass cleaner but that is pretty
much it. That is the oven looking so much cleaner. And I know there was a load of footage here,
but every time I actually cleaned my oven I’m always like,” Oh it’s actually not that
bad. It didn’t take that long.” Now I’m going to clean something that I have been putting
off for absolutely ages and that is our bi-folding doors. I’ve also noticed how very dirty they
are recently, because it’s been getting sunnier. So the way that I clean it is a little bit
of washing up liquid with some warm water, a microfiber cloth and a scrubby, as well
for any really dried on dirt. And then I’m also going to mix one part vinegar and one
part warm water and put it into a spray bottle. I find that that works really well on glass
or on mirrors as well. So I’m just going to go out and get the main bits of dirt off,
the football marks, etc. And the reason that I’m doing this is we did
actually use to have a window cleaner, but when I looked at our finances, I realized
we were paying about 15 to 20 pounds a month for him. And the only windows that really
did bother me were these ones here and I can actually reach all of them. So we decided
to cancel it and that I would do it myself. But it’s very rare that I actually get around
to doing it. So I’m going to just bite the bullet, do it today. So I just washed down
the outside and I’m just going to leave that to dry off a little bit, while I come indoors
and wipe down the doors inside with the water and vinegar solution. So yes, I’m just going
to do that. And then go back outside and do the vinegar solution as well. (singing) Yay. I’m so glad that I finally got that done.
Now I’m going to move on to Jackson’s outdoor mud kitchen. We love this. We’ve had it since
he was about 18 months old and he really does love to make soups in the bowls and play with
it. But for some reason there are toys, absolutely everywhere. So I’ve been meaning to clean
this off, so that he can use it a little bit more. And the bowls themselves are actually
quite dirty. So yes. There’s also, you can’t really see on the camera, but there were little
loom bands all over the deck. So I’m just quickly sweeping those up and then I’m going
to give the mud kitchen a good wipe down. (singing) Next up I’m going to give our kitchen cupboards
a good wipe down. I’m also going to disinfect all of the handles. With everything that’s
going on, I think that’s a sensible thing to do anyway. But I also really like this
product. I found that when I use it, it doesn’t smear. It cleans really well. It even works
on mirrors. Just found that out by accident. But I really like using it so I’m going around
doing all of the handles and then if I see any little bits of dried food or stains on
the cupboards themselves, I’m also going to give them a wipe. (singing) Cupboards all clean and disinfected. So now
I’m going to move on to our upstairs bathroom and a job, again, that I’ve been putting off
for ages. And that is the grout in our bathroom. We have white tiles with white grout. If I
could go back in time, I would have got gray grout. Before this, I’m going to use my water
and vinegar mixture, some baking soda again and then I have this little Sonic. It’s like
an electric toothbrush, but for cleaning, I found it on Amazon. I’ll link it if you
guys are interested. But all I’m going to do for the grout is spray my water and vinegar
mixture onto all of the tiles and then I’m using a little bit of baking soda on the really
dark parts, the really stained bits. I would say if you do use a vinegar, water
mix that it does really smell. My husband was like,” Smells like a fish and chip place
in here.” But as soon as it dries the vinegar smell completely goes and it’s such a good
natural cleaner. And then I went in with my little Sonic gadget. I started out using one
of the smaller heads and then I switched to a bigger one because I just wanted to clean
as much of the tiles as possible. But if you don’t have one of these, I think a bit of
elbow grease and a scrubby brush, will do the same thing. And once I had gone round
and actually scrubbed all of the grouts, I then just wiped it down with a damp microfiber
cloth and then left it to dry. And it definitely did the look a lot cleaner. But yes, anyway, I hope you guys really enjoyed
this video. I hope it gave you some cleaning motivation and yeah, I’m just thinking of
you all and I’m hoping you’re staying safe. Literally, as I’ve been doing the voiceover
for this video, I’ve found out that the schools will be out in the UK from this Friday. So
expect lots of homeschool content and activities to do at home. Big love and… Yeah, I’ll
speak to you soon. Bye guys.
