Giveaway: $11.75 in SC Johnson coupons

I was recently given some SC Johnson products to review, as well as a nice coupon book of coupons to share with my friends. More about those coupons in a moment ... First of all, please remember that I didn't spend any money on these products. They were given to me in exchange for sharing my feedback with others. So you're going to get some honest feedback. (You didn't expect anything less, did you?) The first of these products that I tried was the Scrubbing Bubbles Mega Shower Foamer. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I was a little underwhelmed. At more than $5 a can, I was expecting something close to a miracle. Don't get me wrong - I really did like the product. I just don't understand how it's any different than the original Scrubbing Bubbles cleaner that I use and love. It worked exactly the same for me. I still had to wipe it off, since rinsing is pretty tricky in a shower stall with no tub underneath, unless you want to get soaked. It got rid of dried soap, but it left hard water marks untouched (as I suspected it would). So what am I saying? I'm saying that the original Scrubbing Bubbles cleaner does a great job, and so does this. But it didn't do anything in my fiberglass shower stall that the original formula hasn't already done, too. The Glade Sparkle of Spring candle was a hit with my 7-year-old son who smelled it when he was walking by. I hadn't even lit it yet! He picked it up, sniffed it, and declared it was "the best smell". In fact, he smelled it a few times before he put it down again. If a 7-year-old boy noticed it and was impressed, you can believe it smells great! :) Lastly (for now), I plugged in the Glade Crisp Waters air freshener in the kids' bathroom. I'm usually a fruit- or food-only scent person, but I really love this scent! It smells like spring in a bottle. :) I have my warming unit set on "1," and I smell it every time I walk by that bathroom. I especially love that these will work in Airwick or Glade warmer units! So, now to the giveaway ... I have two coupon packs that I'll be giving away to two people who leave a comment telling me your best cleaning tip. If you have any tips on getting rid of hard water stains in the shower, leave them in a second comment and I'll be forever grateful!! (Plus, it will earn you an extra entry into the giveaway.) On Monday, March 28th, I'll pick two random commenters to receive the coupon packs. Please make sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you win. Thanks! This giveaway is now closed. The winning comments were #3 and #6. I'll be in touch. Thanks for the help! :)

Thanks for all of the product reviews. Pledge is the only dusting product I use. I really love the little duster that's out now. It gets in between small spaces easily but sometimes I like to use an old sock for dusting.

Right now I am loving equal parts vinegar and alcohol mixed together in a spray bottle as an all-purpose cleaner. Although this mixture doesn't smell the best, it is inexpensive, goes a long way, and really seems to clean well.

My best cleaning tip: Divide your house into zones and do a thorough cleaning job on one of the zones each week, also still doing the basic maintenance cleaning each week. Saves the need to spring clean.

Hard water stains: I use SOS pads on my glass shower doors to get rid of hard water stains. I'm not sure if they will also do the job on porcelain or tile, but it is worth a try.

Vinegar and baking soda are my go-to products. Although 'proper' cleaning products are great for when I manage to get hairdye all over the bathtub...

Straight white vinegar will remove hard water scale. We run it through the coffee maker, clean the coffee pot with it, the tub and anything else that comes in contact with water frequently. Someone posted vinegar and baking soda. Don't ever mix them. By mixing them you neutralize both of them. Our water is so hard that even with a water softener we still have problems and white vinegar is the only thing that really works.
