When Target asked if I would be interested in reviewing a few of their up & up brand products, I had to try my very professional best not to sarcastically shout, “WELL, I GUESSSSSSS SO…” My love affair with Target has been well documented over the years, but perhaps the most dramatic representation of my relationship with Target was when I dropped Gracie at daycare one day last year and she cried when I left saying, “BUT I WANT TO GO SHOPPING AT TAHGET!” I have trained that girl well. Needless to say, this will be about the easiest review I’ve ever had to write simply because Target’s up & up brand is my go-to for just about every household need.
My two favorite products are used so often at my house that Target didn’t even have to send me a product sample for the review, because I already had them in my hall closet! First, there are the disinfecting wipes. I love these puppies just as much for their versatility as I do for their ability to kill 99.9% of bacteria in 15 seconds flat! Seriously! If your house is anything like mine, speed cleaning is the only way to survive. I can clean an entire room all morning and my kids can destroy it in about 15 seconds, so I appreciate a product that can operate at the speed of my children.
I use these wipes everywhere – on my kitchen counters, on the dinner table, in my car, on the glass table on the deck… – and the list goes on.
The most common place I use them these days are on my iPad. Gracie likes to play with my iPad, but when I get it back from her, there are sticky fingerprints in the shape of whatever letter she was practicing on her learning app. It’s pretty gross. But the up & up bacterial wipes save the day by wiping off the surface in one clean sweep.
The other up & up product I use the most for my household chores is the up & up brand furniture polish. We have several pieces of nice wood furniture and while I can’t keep them Cheeto-paw-print clean 24 hours a day, I do feel better when I give them a once-over with the up & up polish. Because it renews and protects wood surfaces, I feel a little less squeamish when my kids come running through the dining room with scissors.
Just kidding. I don’t let my kids run with scissors.
I feel a little less squeamish when my kids come running through the dining room with their swords.
Kidding again. I don’t let them run with swords, either.
But I do feel better because Up and Up furniture polish removes the everyday dust, dirt, and smudges that little fingers can leave all over nice furniture.
When keeping my house clean, I generally look for two criteria. Will it make my home cleaner for my family and is it cost effective? Target up & up brand products meet and exceed both of these criteria for me. They are a sure-thing in my shopping cart every week.
