Pass the Gravy – A Canadian Thanksgiving #Giveaway
It’s time for Canadian Thanksgiving. Yippee! Now pass the gravy. We have so much to be thankful for this year. In fact, if you live in Canada, I am pretty sure you all need to be thankful for the gift of geography and how blessed we each are to be living in a country so rich with resources. After my recent trip with World Vision Canada, I can tell you my perspective on gratitude and life in general has changed dramatically.
Canadian Thanksgiving is a great time to share your home, your heart and a beautiful meal together. But before you get to that there’s a fair bit of work to do. The groceries are madness and then of course there is the cleanup.
Which brings me to my question:
What’s your Thanksgiving style?
Are you Last Minute MOM planner like me? I still don’t have a clue where I am going or what I might be doing. But I know my yard is a mess and the windy Fall weather is making it chaos back there. So at some point this weekend we will be tackling that space.
Or are you a Mister Clean? Darling spouse is a Mister Clean kind of guy. He goes on cleaning binges, particularly right before someone comes over to visit. So I know if we invite family suddenly he will kick it into high gear.
Maybe you are like some of the people I know, racing around like a mad woman or man shopping for turkey and fixings. And maybe you are like my Mister Clean husband who goes off the deep end if people are coming over. Either way, chances are you can use some cleaning tips from OxiClean and Nicole Sassaman, lifestyle expert. Nicole has a few thoughts on staying on top of those messes this Thanksgiving.
Regardless of your Canadian Thanksgiving entertaining style, OxiClean has some products to help. Luckily I have a great package to gift to one of you Canadian readers.
Follow the instructions below to win.
I like to have one deep cleaning day a week and tidy up daily.
One cleaning issue I have is the dust that collects on the back of my plasma screen it just seems to be a magnet, I can dust it daily and next day its covered again
I Clean from one end of the house each Saturday then it’s easy to keep it clean during the week by picking up and tidying up
I am a weekend warrior when it comes to cleaning…I go from top to bottom and have a week-end list. My one cleaning issue is my granite counter tops…by the end of the week they are streaky
I am a random cleaner. I don’t finish an entire room first. I get side tracked in each room I enter, but it eventually gets done.. except laundry.. the other half seems to fix that issue for me. lol . I hate matching socks lol.
a cleaning issue I have,is there is ALWAYS an hamper full of laundry,,it magically grows,,I am constantly washing clothes
A cleaning issue I have is trying to keep the floor clean. Between the pets and the kids, I just can’t seem to have a spotless floor for more than a few minutes. It drives me bonkers!
My cleaning issue is how to get it all done as fast as possible!
My cleaning style is erratic,I clean the first floor on one day, then on the another day,the second floor..I try to keep up,but I feel I clean the kitchen and bathrooms more than the rest of my home.
A cleaning issue I have is cleaning our bathtub. We have hard water and it leaves an orange stain on the tub.

Cleaning style is getting greener, lots of baking soda and vinegar!
My cleaning issues is that as soon as I am done, I have to start all over again lol!
One issue I have is cleaning whites with spots on without having to put resolve on the spots before I do the laundry load. Would be nice if only the detergent itself would be sufficient!
one of my issues is pet odours…have great trouble with a certain cat peeing on clothing. Have to wash things two or three times to take the smell out
My cleaning issue is the dust that collects on my ceiling fans.
My cleaning style is keeping a sink full of warm soapy water ready during big dinners so the dirtiest dishes can get soaked and thus are easier to clean.
my cleaning style is sloppy chic
Another of my big cleaning issues is cleaning the toilets. I hate it. I do it often, but it just grosses me out.
Finding the time and desire to clean with my active toddler running around causing more messes than I can clean up.
I do the laundry, and I clean up after our pets on a daily basis
Right after I clean,it becomes dirty again when my boys get home from school

I try to start at one end of a room and then clean across. Try being the key word. I usually end up getting distracted and starting something else :).
A cleaning issue I have is my dog constantly sheds and I am vacuuming and sweeping every day!
my issue with cleaning.. toilets! ARgh.. lots of boys in the house and man oh man, put a leash on it men! lol
I hate cleaning the shower
I tend to do all or nothing which leads into a full blast cleaning frenzy sweeping up the fairy dust! I should pace myself and assign a specific day for each room, I know that works for some other folks!
Our pug sheds like crazy and I seem to be constantly vacuuming it!
I’m having issues with getting my daughters clothes white again. She is 3 and stains everything.
I get overwhelmed with everything but the worst is baby poop
Reaching the top of the fans is an issue but wouldn’t be with this great prize pack.
