The latest party was a Spring Clean Twitter Party which was fairly apt as I had blogged about doing a Spring Clean myself only weeks earlier. Never would I have thought I'd be blogging about cleaning. For those interested (that will be no-one I imagine) you can read my domestic mutterings here. I try and keep the downstairs of my house fairly tidy but at the moment, if truth be told, upstairs has gone to the dogs a bit. Sorry, I digress...
I was actually 15 minutes late to the party last week so imagine my surprise when Bottle PR contacted me to say I was one of the top 5 contributers! Clearly, my love of housework saw me through *cough cough* Actually, it's probably just because I thought tweeting about housework sounded much more fun than actually doing it.
The Twitter party was sponsored by Rentokil and asked for everyones cleaning tips to be tweeted between 1pm - 2pm last Thursday using the hashtag #springclean. It generated approximately 1,350 tweets from over 500 contributers and the power of British Mummy Bloggers got the hashtag trending twice during the hour! Go us! There were some great prizes up for grabs which generated fantastic tips and advice and some truly deserving winners.
These are just a few of the Rentokil tips I saw that I think are definitely worthy of a re-tweet or two:
This was one of my tweets during the party:
I'm a bit of a stickler for vacuuming - although probably not on the same level as some people. My Sister vacuums every day. I secretly call her 'Monica Geller'.
If you think we are both sad then maybe you should have a read of this blog post from Rentokil but be prepared to feel itchy and be reaching for the vacuum cleaner faster than you can say "dust mites"! Most of us probably think our houses are pest-free but you'd be surprised. I'm not saying I'm going to turn into Aggie MccKenzie or anything but I'm still determined to finish my spring clean.
So, all in all, I think the BMB Twitter Party was a great success and has helped me boost my spring clean determination.
I look forward to the next one! Being part of BMB and the Twitter Parties is great.
