Spring Cleaning Tips

Spring cleaning is a tradition that allows us to freshen up our homes and get a head start on the hectic seasons of spring and summer. One of the biggest parts of spring cleaning is getting rid of clutter that you don't need. Use these resources to clear out your stuff. Plan a garage sale. Learn how to box up items you don't need. Find out how to donate items that are taking up space. Cleaning will be a lot easier when the clutter is gone. Prevent dust by using two entrance mats at each entrance. One just outside the door and one just inside the door will reduce the amount of dust, dirt, and debris that enters your home. Be sure to choose mats that will hold up to the wear and tear of your t

Spring Cleaning- Bedroom

Spring cleaning is a tradition that allows us to freshen up our homes and get a head start on the hectic seasons of spring and summer. These cleaning tips help tidy up your bedroom. If the weather has changed, switch out your clothing for the season. Sort out your under-bed storage boxes. Is there anything in them to donate? If so, add them to your donation box. Sort through all your shoes, and if any need repairing, get them ready to take to the cobbler. Go through your dresser and pull out items of clothing you haven’t worn in a year and have no plans to wear again. Put them in your donation box.

Spring Cleaning- Living Room

Spring cleaning is a tradition that allows us to freshen up our homes and get a head start on the hectic seasons of spring and summer. While we may be doing an excellent job of maintaining our living rooms, occasionally we need to do more than maintenance. Here are some tips to get the cleaning started. Grab your supplies. Having all of your supplies together before you begin means no distractions in the middle of cleaning up. Put all items that do not belong in the living room in a container. It saves time if you put these things away after cleaning or at a later time. You’ll find that putting items away into other rooms causes distractions. Clean your remote controls. Clean your phones, bo

Spring Cleaning- Bathroom

Spring cleaning is a tradition that allows us to freshen up our homes and get a head start on the hectic seasons of spring and summer. Bathrooms need to be cleaned often. And unlike other rooms in your home, they cannot be just “picked up” and still be considered clean. These cleaning tips will get your bathroom back in shape and ready for whatever lies ahead. Grab all the necessary supplies. Pick up all of the dirty clothing and put it inside a hamper. Pickup all the items belonging in another room. Put them in a basket, box, or bag.

Kitchen Spring Cleaning

Deep cleaning a kitchen may sound easy, but when it comes to cleaning your oven, refrigerator, and stove, here are some great tips to follow. Before you can begin cleaning your oven, find out what type you have to prevent damage. Determine if your oven is a self-cleaning model, a textured model or a regular non-self-cleaning oven. Always follow manufacturer's instructions for maintaining your oven. Run the self-cleaning cycle for your oven as often as you need to. It reduces nearly any spill to a powdery gray pile of ash that can easily be wiped away at the end of the oven's cleaning cycle. Just use a damp cloth to remove the ashy residue. Make sure you have a window open during the process
