With the spring season approaching, you’re likely feeling the urge to empty out your entire house and give it a deep cleaning. It can be a daunting task to sort through your home room by room, trying to clean hard to tackle areas. To help make your spring cleaning as efficient and stress-free as possible, here are seven hacks that are sure to make a difference in your spring cleaning routine.
When the weather finally starts to warm up and the sun is shining, there’s no better time to start your spring cleaning adventures. It’s best to start your spring cleaning routine in the garden or backyard so you can soak up the new season and feel motivated to start on the rest of your home.
Cleaning Your Vents
While it’s usually a hassle trying to clean dusty air vents, we have an effective solution to get them spotless. Wrap a rag around a butter knife and slid it through the vent’s slats to get rid of stubborn dust.
Grabbing a small amount of shaving cream, place a dab onto any carpet stains that refuse to come out. Let the shaving cream sit on the stain for a few minutes before wiping it away with a damp cloth. This should leave your carpet looking brand new.
For those caked on messes that have seemed to accumulate in your microwave, get a glass of distilled white vinegar and place it in your appliance. Turn the setting to high for about one minute and watch the magic happen. The steam from vinegar will make wiping off crusty stains a breeze.
Dirty Garbage Disposal
If you find that your garbage disposal has seen better days, then here’s what you’ll need to do to freshen it up for spring. Drop in half of a lemon, a bit of salt and one handful of crushed ice. Turn on the disposal and you’ll find that the odour will be neutralized in no time.
Water Stains on Wood
Have very few people used coasters on your wooden table and left behind a number of water rings on the surface? All you need to do is grab a blow dryer that’s set to high heat and blast the area. Once the stain is gone, rub some olive oil down to recondition the wood.
Instead of using an old duster that will leave loose particles floating around in the air, try using the old sock method. Filling a bucket with water and soap, place an old sock over your hand and dip it into the soapy solution. Making a fist to get rid of any excess water, run your sock-covered hand over the blinds.
