springIt’s time to do some spring cleaning! Here are some spring cleaning tips to get you started.

Air out – Get all the germs, smells, and toxins out of your house. Open your doors and windows and set ceiling fans on low. Airing out mattresses a couple times a year also reduces dust and dander. While the windows are open wash the linens and vacuum and rotate your mattress..

De-Clutter – Tackle a closet a week and clear out all the items you no longer use. I do the one-year rule.  If I haven’t worn it in a year, I don’t need it.  Donate these items to charity.  We get emails and mail all the time with donation trucks in our area.  Get some shoe racks , baskets, or shelves to better organize yourself.

Clean Furniture – If you have a leather coach make sure and clean and treat it.  I put a note in my calendar every three months and do it on that day so I don’t forget. Protect wood floors by checking the pads on furniture feet and replacing as needed.

dustDe-Dust – Check the often overlooked areas, such as light fixtures and ceiling fans. Dust down house plants and check the corners of your walls to see if there an any dust or dander.

Kitchen Spruce Up – Clean your refrigerator by wiping down the shelves and drawers with a non-toxic cleaning solution made with two tablespoons baking soda dissolved in a quart of warm water. And don’t forget that extra fridge in the garage! Tackle the microwave next by heating a coffee cup of water mixed with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice on high for 3 to 5 minutes, just long enough for the solution to boil and steam up the microwave. Keep the door shut for a minute longer, and then carefully remove the hot cup. Wipe away loosened grime with a soft cloth.

Sanitize the garbage disposal. Drop a few lemon slices and two tablespoons of baking soda down the disposal. Run the grinder and then rinse with hot water.

These are just a few ways to tackle your spring cleaning projects!  Here is to a happy & clean home!
