Mother’s Day During Lockdown

Mothers love flowers! You should buy your mom some flowers. Oh wait, you can’t go out. Okay, okay, mothers love spa treatments! You should get her a spa treatment. Oh wait, they’re closed. Okay, okay, mommies love going out to eat with their kiddos. You should take her to brunch. Oh wait, take out only. So this Mother’s Day, what is a poor lockdown child to do for their sweet lovely mother?! A HOMEMADE CARD!! Just kidding… maybe. No, no, you should just clean for her, of course! 🙂

Your mother cleans up after you all the time, or she did at some point in your life. Now, it’s time to return the favor. It requires no extra gift or travel, so it is the ultimate lockdown Mother’s Day gift. 

But “Wait,” you say, “I don’t live with my mother.” No problem! Instead of cleaning for her, make her cleaning experience an easier one. You can have products shipped right to her. She will definitely thank you for that. But it’s really all about thanking her!

Also, if you almost forgot Mother’s Day, and are reading this article Saturday night or even after Mother’s Day, what’s great about the gift of cleaning is that you actually can make a homemade card that says something like “One day of deep cleaning by your favorite child, me!” Or you can go order something from Ha-Ra right now, and you can blame the shipping delay on the lockdown. You could even show her your Mach6 Glove on your Mother’s Day Zoom call and tell her that one is on the way to her soon. 

And, don’t forget the Mother’s Day tradition we started last year of giving her something from the Blue Bouquet! It’s better than flowers. In the end, the best gift you can give your mother is showing her how much you love her, and Ha-Ra wants to help you find a way during these crazy lockdown times to make your mom feel special. Happy Mother’s Day!

3 Ways to Distract Yourself & Celebrate Earth Day

Who can think about the earth at a time like this? These days are so focused on other things that it’s easy to forget about the earth. We might even feel a twinge of anger that Mother Nature’s little bugs have caused so much pain and destruction, but it is now, more than ever, that we need to take care of her. There are examples popping up all over of how nature is thriving as humanity takes a time out. Help continue this healthy trend for the earth even when things return to a state of normalcy.

Here are 3 Ways to Distract Yourself & Celebrate Earth Day (April 22) with Ha-Ra while at home…

1. Stuck in the house? Deep clean!

You’ve watched everything on Netflix, you’ve Zoom-ed your family and friends, and you’ve stocked up on toilet paper and hair dye. Now what… How about a deep clean?  We know you’d rather just sit on the couch in your pajamas, but now is the best time to deep clean. Once you can go out again, you will never want to stay home again… so get the deep clean done now.

With Ha-Ra products, your cleaning doesn’t require any chemicals that hurt Mother Nature, so you are celebrating Earth Day merely by cleaning your house. Bust out your Ha-Ra Green Glove and go deep. It is the perfect way to spend a day and keep your space clean.

Bonus: Head outside and start to get your patio, garden, etc. ready for outdoor use. Summer is almost here!

2. Recycle all your chemical cleaner bottles, once and for all.

No need to be wasteful, but hurry up and finish using all your harmful chemical cleaners or donate them to someone else in need.  Once all your old products are empty, throw them in the recycling bin and never look back.

Even if you buy the “eco-friendly” cleaners, they still come in plastic bottles, and there is still waste created in the manufacturing process and shipping process. Even if you refill them at a refilling station, you still have to drive there to do so.

The greenest possible method for cleaning is with water and Ha-Ra products. Your order will be delivered straight to your door, and Ha-Ra products last for years saving you a lot of money and time. Try our Ha-Ra Mach6 Glove with some water and clean everything with ease. Over and over and over, no extra trips to buy more and no manufacturing of chemicals. An Earth Day power play!

3. Spread the word not the virus!

Earth Day is not only about doing eco-friendly things but also about raising awareness. Rather than spreading the virus, help us spread the word. Tell all of your friends and family about the environmental benefits and stay-at-home perks of using Ha-Ra products.

A simple thing like owning Ha-Ra products such as the classic Ha-Ra Bathroom Kit, can transform your cleaning and your interdependent relationship with Mother Earth. Send folks a link, mention it on your next Zoom call, and/or post it on your favorite social media platform. Sharing is caring. 💚

 

This Earth Day, deep clean, be free of chemicals, and spread awareness by telling the world about Ha-Ra! Enjoy being clean, green, and serene. 🌱

A Hedgehog is the Easter Bunny’s Best Friend

It’s that time of year again when the Easter Bunny comes out to color her eggs and resurrect the Easter spirit! (Which of course means it’s time for the hedgehog to come out too!) The hedgehog loves all the bunnies. Seeing the Easter Bunny is a perfect reminder to deep clean the floors in your house, gathering up all those lost dust bunnies…

The best tools to do that are the Ha-Ra Floor Perfect Nano Hedgehog Pad and his friends. 🙂  That’s right, April is a great time to rid your floors of that winter grime and hidden dust bunnies, and have fun while doing it. When you see a bunny, grab your hedgehog!

The hedgehog likes to ride his trusty Floor Express Perfect w/ Handle. The two of them will make cleaning your floors a breeze. Your floors will be cleaner than ever before, and you might actually enjoy cleaning your floors for the first time in your life.

Another friend to join the floor cleaning party is the nano kitten with her Floor Perfect Nano Gold Pur Pad. The cleaning power of the Nano fiber will surprise you. The floor pad consists of more than 69 million individual strands that can absorb 6 to 7 times their own weight in water. 

The goose that laid the golden egg is definitely the Ha-Ra Floor Kit, which includes a handle, Ha-Ra Yellow Dry Pad, and the Nano Gold Soft Pad. The dry pad is ideal for dry sweeping floors. The special fibers attract and hold onto dust until the pad is shaken out to release it. Now, that is worth its weight in gold.

And when the party heads outside, the floors can get tough, but the Floor Perfect Green Pad is ready for the job. Just add water, and a couple of drops of the Ha-Ra Protective Formula. You’ll be ready to clean patios, rubber floors, pool areas, stone floors, and more.

Finally, this Easter floor party wouldn’t be complete without the Ha-Ra Press Butler. The Press Butler ensures your favorite Ha-Ra floor pad contains the right amount of water to achieve a sparkling clean result without effort. Use to rinse and wring out Ha-Ra floor pads.

When the Easter Bunny comes out, it’s time to get the hedgehog out and gather up all those dust bunnies and their buddies. With a team of Ha-Ra pals to help, your floors will shine with the Easter light.

Spring Cleaning The Right Way!

The cold is breaking, the warmth is dawning, you’re getting feeling back in your fingers and toes, and it’s time to clean all those spaces the winter forgot. It’s SPRING CLEANING season, especially in current times.

Yay so exciting! Just kidding, few people look forward to deep cleaning their homes. But, if you clean the right way, it won’t feel like work. It can be simple, fast, fun, and low-impact for the environment. Here are the steps… 

Step 1: Turn up the music!

Just like when exercising, if you can’t hear yourself breathing you can go further. If you can’t hear yourself cleaning, you can clean more!

Step 2: Start with the simplest.

If you start with the worst, you will never start. Start with something simple. Clear the clutter off the counter. Wipe the kitchen counters. Load the dishwasher. Next thing you know, you are in it! One thing leads to another, and the deeper you can dive. 

Step 3: Go under the sink, and get your cleaning supplies.

Grab your Mach6 Glove, Nano Hedgehog Cloth, and/or your Sapphire Cloth. Time to rock! [Sidebar: All your Ha-Ra supplies are safe and chemical free, so you can store them under the sink without worrying about children getting into them!]

Step 4: Move from room to room.

You’re in the kitchen. Good! That gets the dirtiest. If all you get done today is the kitchen, you have succeeded! But keep pushing, after the kitchen is clean, take a break. Go sit down on the sofa… now you are in the living room… might as well clean that next! Get those windows with the Vario Window Cleaner Viva. Keep it going and just get all the windows in your home while you’re at it.

Step 5: Potty Break!

You’ve been working hard! Take a potty break. Annnnd while you’re in there, you might as well deep clean that bad boy too. Grab your Bathroom Kit from under the sink, and make your commode sparkle.

Step 6: Finally the floors!

When cleaning, always clean top to bottom, so all the extra dirt falls to the floor. Now, that you have thoroughly cleaned every area of the house, it’s finally time to clean the floors. You can use your Floor Perfect Nano Gold Soft Pad to get those to shine with ease.

Step 7: Tomorrow tackle the garage and grill.

You did a great job today. Throw in the towel…literally… 🙂 Tomorrow you can finish up with the outside stuff. You can break out your Green Glove and go to town on the patio, garage, and grill.

Speaking of green, did you notice not a single chemical was used in your entire spring cleaning adventure?! Now that is cleaning the right way! Congratulations! You are keeping your home and our home, Earth, clean at the same time. Thanks.

Are You Ready for 2020?

So many deadlines, dreams, goals, plans, and aspirations slapped a date of 2020 on them as the year everything will finally be achieved! Well, here we are. You finally made it! The question is: are you ready? Did you achieve your goal? If so, congratulations!

If not, good news, there’s a loophole… we technically have until the end of 2020. We have less than 12 months to quit procrastinating and make it all happen. 

You can do it! We believe in you and are here to help. Going green, finding more time, and finally cleaning parts of the house that look like abandoned museum exhibits. Ha-Ra can cover you for all of those goals.

Here are the 3 ways you’ll know you are ready for 2020!

  1. You wrote it down. Whatever it is – goal, dream, plan, shopping list, whatever! Write it down now or as soon as you think of it. Digital screens have destroyed our short term memories. It has a 100% greater chance of happening if it’s written down. Journal, diary, notepad, smart phone app, kitchen wall, wherever. It’s gone otherwise.
  2. You have the supplies. Give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day; teach a man to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime… but only if he has a fishing pole, bait, and a bucket. He won’t achieve anything without the proper supplies. We often set goals but don’t get ourselves the supplies to achieve them.
  3. You know the ‘WHY’. Attaching the WHY makes it real. Makes it worth it. Makes it a story. Makes it memorable. Makes it happen! When we know why we are putting in the effort, we are more likely to do it. The more specific the why, the better.

Here’s an great example:

  1. Write down a list of the forgotten areas of the house that need cleaning.
  2. Get your Mach6 Glove, or Viva Mini Cloth, and restock your Ha-Ra supplies like your Blue Paste and Protective Formula.
  3. Why? Because you will finally be able to use those parts of the house again. It feels so good!

2020 is the end. The end of unfinished business. The end of excuses. The end of cleaning your house with chemicals. It’s the beginning of new goals, new dreams, new achievements, new clean, new life!  Are you ready? With Ha-Ra, you surely will be.

Happy New Year! Happy Achieving! Happy 2020! Happy Ha-Ra!
