Spring Cleaning Hacks:

  • Instead of using paper towel or old rags to wipe down surfaces while cleaning, we recommend purchasing microfiber clothes. Their ability to wipe up liquid cleaner, pick up debris, and avoid leaving streaks is far superior.

  • Use a lint roller to clean your screen doors.

  • Clean your bathroom walls with a Swiffer or dust mop.

  • Clean your air vents using a butter knife wrapped in a piece of cloth to get between the slats.

The Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist and Hack Guide

  • To clean your washing machine, fill it with hot water and add a quart of bleach. Complete one full cycle using only bleach to clean and sanitize. Then, run a second cycle with vinegar to help dissolve soap scum and grime. Lastly, use scrubbing pads to clean around the washer’s drum.

  • To clean your bathtub or bathroom tile and grout, all you need is baking soda, peroxide, and dish soap to make a budget-friendly cleaner. 

  • Clean out your dishwasher with bleach, vinegar, and baking soda. In this 4 step cleaning process, you will use baking soda, bleach, and vinegar in a separate washing cycle to get your dishwasher smelling and looking like new.

  • You can clean your blinds by using kitchen tongs wrapped in microfiber cloth. Is your feather duster not doing it for you anymore? Use tongs wrapped in microfiber cloth to rid your blinds of dust and dirt.

The Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist and Hack Guide

  • Clean your shower head overnight with white vinegar. Fill a sandwich bag with white vinegar and place your shower head in the solution overnight. In the morning you should have a dirt and grime free shower head.

The Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist and Hack Guide

  • Use toothpaste to erase marker stains from wood, and to remove any drawings your children accidentally put on the walls, scrub lightly on the area with a damp sponge sprinkled in baking soda.

  • After scrubbing and disinfecting your garbage disposal you can ensure the removal of any stinky smells by running a few lemon rinds through the disposal and then running cold water to dispel any sour odors.

  • To help remove any pet smells or odors on your furniture or carpet, sprinkle the surfaces affected with baking soda, let it sit for 15 minutes, and then vacuum it up.

  • Got a scuff or a scratch on your wood furniture? Rub the scratched area with a walnut (shell removed) to mask the damage.
