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

5-Serious-Tips-to-Make-Spring-Cleaning-a-Breeze

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.
