Just before Christmas, I came home to a huge box on my porch. Christmas has come early thanks to Green Works. I opened the box to find everything I would need to make a GLORIOUS MESS! From glitter (and lots of it) to snow in a can, to play dough and cookie mix, Green Works thought of it all. I eagerly set the box aside, ready to bring it home to Stoney Creek for the holidays so I could make a giant mess with my favourite mess makers, my cousins.


I arrived at my Aunt and Uncle’s doorstep with a smile on my face and my box of mess. Don’t worry, I didn’t come to make a mess and then leave them empty handed. Of course, Green Works was kind enough to include some of their awesome cleaning supplies so that we could make a mess without worry since cleaning up would be easy.


We started off with the play dough. With so many colours to choose from, the girls didn’t know where to start. We decided to open them all. I mean, why not we could clean up our mess easily afterwards?  We started forming shapes, making Christmas trees out of play dough and making a huge mess.


After a short time, we realized we weren’t living up to our full mess potential. Enter – snow in a can! Yep, you read that right. Artificial snow in a can that you add water to and watch it grow. Now here comes the MESS.


In an attempt to  make the biggest mess possible, before we finished our incredibly fun and messy afternoon, we unleashed the glitter because nothing says “I love a good mess” more than glitter in every colour. After we were covered in glitter, snow and play dough, I decided it was time to clean up.

The kids looked a little concerned, but I assured them that I would do all the cleaning. Within minutes, everything was back to normal and you would have never known that there were a bunch of kids, adults and even a dog making giant messes all afternoon in the same spot.


Clorox Green Works products are free from harsh chemical fumes and residue, but are still powerful enough to clean even the biggest of messes without breaking a sweat. To clean our mess, I reached for:

Thanks to Green Works I never have to worry about my messes again.
