Many people take time in the spring to do a well-deserved deep cleaning of their homes. If you’re limited on time, try doing these 5quick spring cleaning tips around your home to get the same refreshing feeling this spring.
Clean the Windows
Make your home sparkle by wiping down all your windows inside and out. We suggest washing your windows on a cloudy day, to prevent the sun from drying the cleanser before you finish wiping, which avoids streaking. While you do that, take a moment to ensure the caulking around your windows is intact and no water can be seeping through the edges.
Shake the Rugs
Grab all the rugs around your home and do a thorough shake outside. While your rugs are removed, you can get into the spirit of spring cleaning and vacuum the areas where your rugs usually lay. This way you’ll be able to get all the extra dirt which can hide underneath your rugs out of your home. Keeping a home dust-free can avoid it from going into the air ducts of your home causing health issues to family and friends.
Rinse the Dishwasher
After many cycles of dirty dishes in your dishwasher, there could be food stuck in the crevices which may be circulating every time you turn it on. With a sprinkle of baking soda and white vinegar, you could scrub off any stains or mess inside. After you've cleared any food pieces from the bottom, run an empty cycle with a safe dishwasher cleanser. Check the water lines leading into the dishwasher as well to check for any leaks.
Toss Expired Food
It’s easy for old or expired items around your home to go unnoticed. Take the time to go through your cupboard, pantry, and refrigerator to clear out any expired or old items. Once you sort through everything, you can clean and re-organize these spaces.
Wash Your Bedding
Instantly feel refreshed and relaxed when you curl up under freshly cleaned bedding. Pull off all the sheets, comforters, and pillowcases in your home and do a few loads while working on your other spring cleaning to-dos. Don’t forget about any extras in your linen closets which could use a nice wash. If you are ready to discard any gently used bedding, see if your local homeless shelter can use any of your supplies.
