MilFam Deep Clean

In the spring of 2020, Blue Star Families partnered with Hunt Military Communities to collect and share your favorite MilFam cleaning hacks.

Because cleaning is never fun but cleaning smarter, not harder is...well, smarter!

Check them out here👇👇👇

The cleaning and organizing hacks provided by our #MilFamSpringClean contestants are for general information purposes only. All information on bluestarfam.org/milfamspringclean is provided in good faith; however, we make no representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied, regarding the accuracy, adequacy, validity, or reliability of these hacks.

What’s with MilFam Deep Clean?

Military families move 3X more often than civilians. In fact, the majority (54%) of military family respondents of Blue Star Families’ 2019 Military Family Lifestyle Survey have moved 4 or more times.

That’s a lot! It’s no wonder the top two stressors for our active-duty families in 2019 were financial stress (48%) and relocation issues (46%) — especially those tied to “out of pocket relocation costs” like the expensive task of restocking pantries, freezers, and cleaning supplies!

While we know “cleaning hacks” don’t solve your MilLife challenges, we sure hope these tidbits of advice, from those who live the life too, help ease your stress this spring — no matter where you are in your journey.
