Spring is just around the corner (thankfully!) and it’s time to start getting your home ready for warmer weather! With so many things to clean, it can feel a bit overwhelming. Don’t worry! We have some great cleaning tips for you including how to clean using Eco-friendly products (if you haven’t read our blog on how to clean with lemons, you can check it out here).
Here are some cleaning tips to get you started:
Clean shower heads overnight! Pour plain white vinegar into a plastic bag and tie it around the shower head. Let it soak overnight. When you wake up, run cool water through the shower and all the buildup and gunk will drain away. If there still is residue left on, you can remove it by running a toothbrush dipped in vinegar over the shower head.
Remove unwanted odors: clean and vacuum your furniture and carpets; a common solution to removing general pet odors is baking soda. Just sprinkle a small amount of baking soda on carpets and fabrics in your home. Leave it on for 15 minutes (or more), then vacuum it. Change your air filter–this is something that should be done once a month.
Clean rugs and runners with a carpet cleaner to give them new life and to get rid of any gunk that might have built up over the cold winter season.
Wash windows by cleaning both the inside and outside thoroughly along with the frame of the window. Use a streak free cleaner for best results.
Dust everything! And I do mean everything! Make sure to wipe down every surface in your home and pay special attention to the tops of your ceiling fan, curtain rods, and bookshelves to get your home squeaky clean! Don’t forget to vacuum after dusting your home to pick up any fallen particles.
