6 Tips For A Simple Seasonal Purge-Fest

After a long and seemingly endless winter, the time has finally come to turn off that dry heat, shed your woolies and start spending time outside the confines of your home.

And for those of you living in warm climes, you have no excuse – the start of spring is the perfect time to clean up and reorganize your closets, your bedding, you name it.

Frisky Q&A: To Pee Or Not To Pee (In The Shower) & Other Cleaning Conundrums Solved By Jolie Kerr, Author Of My Boyfriend Barfed In My Handbag

“Cleanliness” is such relative concept that hardly anyone thinks of herself as a dirty person. We all believe we’re neat and clean enough, because, well, it’s our B.O., sandwich crumbs, and long strands of hair we’re living with. (At least you think it’s hair!) But an honest assessment may tell a different story. If your mom/mother-in-law/Martha Stewart were popping by for a visit, would you really just swipe the top of the stove with a Clorox Disinfecting Wipe and call it a day? Thought not. That, my dirty friends, is why we have Jolie Kerr. Keep reading »

Whether your last relationship was a brief affair or years in the making, breakups are always tough to handle. For many of us, the five stages of grief include sulking, series binging on your favorite TV shows, drowning your sorrows with multiple pints of Ben & Jerry’s, and staunch avoidance. Still surrounded by mementos of your ex and your relationship, sometimes the easiest response to your emotional state is to sit on the couch and do nothing at all. That is, until your best friend comes over to deliver a much-needed pep talk and finds you buried beneath a pile of post-relationship clutter.

With a little push, you admit that it’s time to get organized and get on with your life. To help guide the process of cleaning up after the breakup, here are five simple tips for excising your ex and all his/her stuff from your home: Keep reading »

To help you get the most out of your wardrobe–and save time, money, and stress on a daily basis–Tracy DiNunzio, closet organizing pro and founder of resale marketplaces Tradesy and Tradesy Weddings, is sharing her top  closet cleaning tips.

Spring Cleaning Week at The Frisky has made it seem like we’re all a couple of Martha Stewarts hoovering Adderall. Lies! While we’re not gross-gross, I do feel it is my duty as a Frisky staffer to present an honest portrait of us: we’re a little gross. Julie’s desk is a wasteland of half-eaten snacks, Ami’s is covered in papers, mine has bagel crumbs stuck to coffee stains, and Amelia’s got a half-drunk plastic cup of red wine on hers that’s been sitting there for days. (Not even sure what that’s about — possibly this?) In conclusion, we probably shouldn’t be lecturing ANYBODY about cleanliness.

So, in the interest of full disclosure, we’re going to — anonymously! — share some gross things we do in the bathroom which we would never admit to doing.

Please don’t tell our mothers. Keep reading »

All week, we’ve been focused on spring cleaning the clutter out of our lives, from our inboxes (guilty!) to our cars to our bad dating habits to our goodie drawers. We’ve swapped unwanted clothing, cleaned up some sex messes, made it simple to decide whether to keep it or toss it. But in this modern age, spring cleaning doesn’t end in the realm of the physical — our online lives could use some tidying up as well. You know what I’m talking about … your Facebook friends list. It’s time to clean house, ya hear? Here are eight types of folks you should unfriend without a second thought. Keep reading »

Have your messy sex, but know how to clean up when you’re done. Here are some tips for tidying up after getting down.

For the most part, I’m a pretty neat and tidy gal. I make my bed every morning, my apartment is almost always spotless, and I’m really anal about having a pretty high level of order in all areas of my life. But there is one area in my life where my OCD tendencies are nowhere to be found — my email inbox. The situation is a legit disaster. I only delete emails when I have to, i.e. when my inbox is so full that I can no longer send or receive any messages. The Frisky staff is officially fed up. The task of deleting as much email that has accumulated has become so daunting that I’ve just put it off … until now. Spring Cleaning Week — okay, and the staff’s threats of mutiny — was the excuse I needed to finally face my email hoarding problem head on. This is my journey.

It’s Spring Cleaning Week here at The Frisky and we’ve shown you how to clean your makeup brushes, organize your beauty productsedit up your DVR queue, and even fix some cocktails that will make scrubbing your bathtub more bearable. (Do we know our readers or do we know our readers?)

But screw all that. I’m honestly not cleaning up squat unless my mom is coming to visit and then maaaaaybe I’ll put things in stacks and piles and spray scary chemicals all around the bathroom. What I’m more interested in is cleaning the area of my apartment that gets most of its traffic between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. at night. How do I clean my vibrator? None of my condoms have expired right? (Not that I have lots of unused condoms around … no siree … I use all of them, like, all the time … )
