Spring Cleaning


Though it might not feel like it yet, spring time is approaching very fast. A common practice during this time of year would of course be spring cleaning. If everyone else is doing it, why not join in on the fun?

One of the most common practices during spring cleaning would of course be dust removal. With many things in the house left sitting around during the winter and the lack of fresh air circulating from outside, dust often times builds up in the house. Also with the use of fireplaces during the winter (the ones that use real wood of course), smoke and ash from the fire can build up in rooms with fireplaces. So with the fireplace going out of season soon, now is the perfect time to grab a spray bottle, some paper towels, a vacuum, and a duster and go around the house for just an hour or so. You might be surprised by just how much you find in your house!

Next grab the cleaning chemicals and clean some of the appliances! Here is a list of simple supplies and how you can use them to clean, brought to you by HGTV:
  • Drains:  ½ c. baking soda with ½ c. salt – pour down drain, follow with 2 c. boiling water, and let sit overnight.
  • Bathtubs: ½ c. baking soda with white vinegar, make a paste.
  • Ovens: ½ c. baking soda with ¼ c. salt, add enough water to make a paste.

Spring cleaning doesn't have to just be cleaning up dirt and grime though, why not take some time on the weekend to clean up papers and files in your house and even your office? Having a more tidy work environment will provide you with a much more organized and efficient zone to go about your job tasks, and plus it just might get a thumbs up from the boss! 

Keeping your spaces and things clean won't only make you feel better, but you might stumble up some things that either need to be fixed or maybe you could do without! The stuff you can do without can either be sold for some extra cash or donated to a good cause!

Thank you for your time and attention, let's make it safe this Monday!
