It’s that time of the year. Time for Spring Cleaning!


Winter has come and gone, and now once again spring is upon us.  Time to purge the closet and kids toys to make way for all-new stuff in 2015!

We’ve surfed the internet and found some great spring cleaning tips to help you get the most out of your spring cleaning:

  • Adding a lazy susan to your fridge after you clean it will allow easier access to what you are looking for. It will also help prevent spills.
  • If you are using a sponge for your cleaning, be sure to sanitize by squeezing out the excess water and placing it in the microwave for a minute to disinfect it.
  • Have a garbage disposal? Clean it by tossing in a piece of lemon, some salt, and a few ice cubes to give it a thorough cleaning.
  • Looking to save time?  Time yourself!  A timer can be a great way to get more done in less time.
  • Not only is lemon a great way to clean your garbage disposal, it is also a great way to clean your stainless steel faucets.  It’s acidic nature will remove any hard water stains and rust left behind from months of use.
  • Cleaning your windows?  Do it on a cloudy day.  If you clean your windows on a sunny day, it will dry quickly preventing you from getting a good cleaning.  Use equal parts white vinegar and warm water to clean your windows.
  • Dusting?  Use dryer sheets instead of those expensive electrostatic cloths.  They work just as good and cost a lot less.
  • Clean your dishwasher by placing a cup of vinegar on the top shelf and run the hottest cycle.  After that cycle, sprinkle a cupful of baking soda around the bottom of the dishwasher and run it on a short but hot cycle.
  • A great way to clean your shower head is by placing a baggie full of vinegar over the top of the shower head to remove grime and calcium build-up.  Leave it overnight and remove it in the morning.
