This #15MinReno post was made possible by iConnect and Mr. Clean. I was provided the featured product and compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions are 100% mine.
My husband and I just recently sold our house. We did many things to prepare for putting the house on the market, but the easiest thing we did was put some effort into cleaning. We made sure to look at every nook and cranny to see how the buyer would view our home. We didn’t want grimy appliances or dirty baseboards to make a buyer avoid making an offer. Here is an example of what we did…
15 Minute Renovation for selling your home
We looked at our first floor bathroom and saw that it looked great as you walked into the room. However, when you turned around to leave the room, it looked less than impressive. We revived the little corner by the door using my #15MinReno Kit (Magic Eraser, Concentrated Multi-Surface Cleaner) from Mr. Clean and a few props we had around the house. Here is the before and after.
When we started, my husband had some of his toiletries sitting out on the cabinet, and there were fingerprints and dirt on the door, door jam, light switch and wainscoting. Here is a closer look at the light switch:
See how the spots and scuff marks are off the wall, and the grime on the switch plate and molding has been erased? In 15 minutes, I wiped down the walls, wainscoting, door, light switch and cabinet with Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and Concentrated Multi-Surface Cleaner. I also put my husband’s toiletries in a drawer, hung a clock on the wall and placed rolled up hand towels in a basket on the cabinet. Doesn’t it look so much better?
15 minutes can make a big improvement, and no major renovation needed to be done. This saved us time and money!
