Spring is here and that means it is time to start cleaning!
While spring cleaning may not seem like your idea of fun, the wonderful feeling of a clean and organized house is a reward in itself!
The Lawhead Team would like to share some spring cleaning ideas and tips to follow:
- To revive drab drapes, take them down, remove hooks and run them through an air-fluff cycle in the dryer with a damp towel (to attract the dust) for 15 minutes or so. Re-hang them immediately.
- When dusting for spring cleaning, take everything off shelves, tabletops and dressers to dust. Now is also the time to get to all the places you’ve been neglecting throughout the year, including ceiling fans, above kitchen cabinets and baseboards and doorways.
- Next, start cleaning out your garbage cans. Spray them with a hose and dump out the water. Next, spray the inside with a disinfectant spray, scrub with a handled brush and rinse. Leave them upside down to dry.
- Move furniture away from walls and clean underneath.
- Perform a deep cleaning for your floors. Have your carpets professionally cleaned and wax wooden floors.
- Upholstered furniture needs cleaning too. Vacuum pillows, as well as underneath the cushions. Look for stains and clean according to the care label.
- Start cleaning your refrigerator top to bottom. The best cleaner is a combination of abrasive salt and bubbly soda water.
- If there’s a lime buildup around the faucet, lay paper towels over the fixture and soak it with vinegar, letting it set for one hour. The deposits will soften and become easier to remove.
- Cleaning your stove top is easy if you use a toothbrush to remove softened food from around the burners, knobs and dials on the stove top.
- Organize pantry and throw out any expired foods.
