Mom Must-Haves :: March 2017 Spring Cleaning


At City Moms Blog Network, we are jumping-up-and-down excited to bring you our very first issue of Mom Must-Haves. Each month we will feature our favorite brands and product recommendations, hand-selected by moms, for moms.

March is here and it’s time to start thinking about gearing up for the much anticipated (or the much dreaded) spring cleaning frenzy. In this issue of Mom Must-Haves, we are bringing you our tried-and-true product recommendations for cleaning everything in your home from clothes to toilets, in an effort to help get your home in tip-top shape… for all of 5 minutes before life with kids happens!


We LOVE us some Fresh Wave at CMBN and we are going to tell you why! With a full line of products, Fresh Wave can tackle any odor issues a mom might face, from the bathroom to the kitchen to the diaper pail to the dog. Couple that with the fact that Fresh Wave products are made from simple, pure and natural ingredients, with no masking fragrances or harsh chemicals, and it’s no wonder we love it so much!

One of our favorite Fresh Wave products is the Fresh Wave Gel, which provides literally 24/7 odor control anywhere you place it. For example, next to your kitchen trash can after throwing away way too ripe bananas or in the bathroom after… we’ll just let you put that one together on your own.

Another must have is the Fresh Wave Spray  to tackle those immediate odor removal needs. Think potty training gone wrong, on your family room couch. This spray works like a charm. Now where are the diapers!?

When you use Fresh Wave, you can be assured you are using products that are safe for your family, as well as mom-tested and mom-approved! Find where to buy Fresh Wave near you!


It’s beyond frustrating when you finally muster the strength to unload the dishwasher only to pull out dishes with water marks and last night’s spaghetti sauce splattered on them. Luckily, Lemi Shine Dishwasher Detergent Booster eases this frustration by leaving dishes sparkling clean! Powered by natural citric extracts, Lemi Shine offers a wide variety of household cleaning products ready to tackle your toughest cleaning job!


Have you heard of Grove Collaborative? Think Stitch Fix for cleaning products! It’s an online service, where the best natural products for your home and family are hand-selected and delivered right to your door. The research is done for you and new brands to fall in love with are introduced with each box. Take Mrs. Meyer’s for example, the lavender smell of their cleaning spray is heavenly and you will likely clean your counter tops just to smell it! Now that’s a win-win!

Let’s face it, a mom’s relationship with her vacuum is sacred. After all, who do you turn to when a whole container of Cheerios gets spilled and then crushed onto your floor or when a crafting session turns disasterous (note: glitter and children don’t mix). Vacuums have to stand up to some of life’s biggest messes, which is why the Dyson V6 Cordless Vacuum (or any Dyson really) is a must have in our book! This lightweight vacuum is cordless, which means it can literally go anywhere you need it to, and no more wrestling with cords or tripping toddlers! Get your hands on a Dyson pronto.


We’ve got a practical must have for you with the Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush. If your definition of cleaning the bathroom is making sure no “marks” in the toilet (slowly raises hand), then this brush is your dream come true. Well maybe not, but you get the point. The best part is you can literally flush the brush head down the porcelain throne and be done with it! Up your potty cleaning game with the Fresh Brush!


So fresh and so clean, clean! That is what you will be chanting after using Persil PROCLEAN laundry detergent. From moms who have tried just about everything on the market, we LOVE this stuff! Not only does it truly get even the grimiest clothes clean, it smells fantastic! There is also a hypoallergenic, dye-free and perfume-free formula for those sensitive skin kiddos and mamas out there. You’re welcome! Start using Persil PROCLEAN today!

Don't Forget To Put A Pin In It!!
