How to Curb Dust and Dirt this Spring

How to Curb Dust and Dirt this Spring

We’ll help you clean up dust and dirt quickly so you can get back to enjoying spring.


Ah, springtime. For most, the changing season means longer days and sunny afternoons that invite us to get outside after a long winter. For others, it means an increase in pollen, dust, dirt and other allergens that send us running – and sniffling – right back indoors.

While we certainly can’t help you tame the allergens outside, we can help clean up the dust and dirt inside your home.

1. Clean and Dust Every Day with Swiffer
We know – it’s a total bummer. But dust and pet dander can build up quickly inside your home, and the best way to keep them in check is to dust and vacuum every day, or at least every other day. But keep it simple: A Swiffer 360 Duster can help you quickly clean dust-collecting surfaces like blinds, ceiling fans, air vents and entertainment centers, while a Swiffer Sweeper with a dry cloth can trap and lock dirt, dust and hair on hard floors. And don’t forget to wash curtains at the start of each season to help remove dust and pollen hiding in the fabric.

2. Clear the Air with Febreze
Once you’ve cleaned the hard surfaces in your home, it’s time to freshen up the air. Inanimate allergens such as pet dander and dust mite matter (yuck!) can become airborne from soft surfaces like couches, pillows and other fabrics. But Febreze AIR Allergen Reducer reduces up to 75 percent of those inanimate allergens* from the air and leaves behind a light fresh scent.

Tip: When the sniffles strike, you’ll want to have soft but strong tissues close at hand. Keep a few boxes of Puffs Ultra Soft and Strong in your home and car to help soothe your skin while you deal with spring allergies.

3. Check Dust at the Door with Bounty
You may not be allergic to pet dander, but did you know that your four-legged family member could be bringing in dust, dirt and pollen from outside? To help keep the mess outside (or at least, at the door), brush your dog’s coat regularly to help remove loose fur. Then wipe down your furry friend with a damp Bounty DuraTowel before they come in.

4. Wash Your Sheets with Tide
Kids playing outside, springtime gardening, outdoor exercise – the more time you spend outdoors, the more dust and pollen collect on your hair, skin and clothes. And if you go to sleep with them on you, they wind up on your pillows and sheets – and you wake up with itchy eyes. A good habit is to shower before bed and wash your sheets weekly with Tide PODS. Read the labels carefully, but generally it’s best to wash them in the hottest water possible.

I used to have similar problems printing coupons so back in Nov. 2016 I contacted coupons.com and requested a fix. They suggested that I implement the new Print Verification feature, which I did, and now I have no problem printing coupons. I saved the step-by-step instructions and can post them if anyone is interested.

I also have issues printing off coupons. I select my coupons and then go to the basket to print them off, but paper always comes out blank. I then can't go back to those coupons as it tells me that I already printed them off, so they are not available. Please help.
