5 Spots to Clean this Spring
Many of us have a cleaning strategy we employ when it's time to wash our space. Unfortunately, this kind of strategic method can mean certain areas of your home go overlooked for months, or even years. To help, the Cleaning Authority has put together the ultimate spring cleaning guide to help homeowners clean the forgotten and more difficult areas around the home:
The quickest method for removing dust from baseboards is to use the brush attachment on your vacuum. To remove any scuff marks, gently scrub the baseboards with a cleaning sponge like a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
A simple way to freshen up curtains in between washes is to use a vacuum. Use the vacuum's brush extension to remove any dust or debris from the curtains.
Grab a pair of tongs, wrap two microfiber cloths around them and fasten with rubber bands. Clasp the tongs around each blind and drag across to remove dust.
Instead of using a rag to clean the fan, try using a pillowcase. Slip it in between the fan blades and swipe one at a time. You can then just throw your pillowcase into the washing machine.
Behind the Toilet
Given the hard to reach crevices and grout lines located behind the toilet, it's beneficial to purchase an extendable scrubber. This eliminates any back strain or bruised knees from trying to fit behind the toilet. When using the scrubber, dip into a solution of warm water, ¼ cup vinegar and 1 tablespoon of dish soap for a thorough clean.
