It’s that time again – yep, time for Spring-cleaning. Wash away the winter doldrums and brighten up your house in celebration of the new season. While you may not enjoy Spring-cleaning, there are ways to make it easier and more efficient.
Cleaning goes more smoothly if you have everything you need at your fingertips. The following tips will help ensure that your cleaning efforts go as quickly and easily as possible.
Start off by purchasing a bucket. Look for a stainless steel bucket big enough to hold your cleaning kit. Another bonus – it won’t rust!
Add a multi-purpose cleaner. If you use a concentrate get a great spray bottle that can be refilled many times. You will also need a multi-purpose powder. Mildly abrasive powder works well on ceramic, stainless steel, and porcelain.
Break your paper-towel habit with reusable cloths. Pick some sturdy enough to hold up well in the wash.
You will also need sponges. Try using natural cellulose sponges, as they are soft, pliable and a bargain!
Do you know about the super secret ingredients – vinegar and dishwashing liquid? A good dishwashing liquid mixed with water can clean almost anything, including countertops and painted wood. Diluted with water, vinegar is a household M.V.P. It works!
Protect your hands by using latex gloves. There are some now that have a soft cotton lining.
Don’t forget glass cleaner. Glass cleaner is not just for mirrors and windows it’s also wonderful for polishing fixtures.
By having these tools at your fingertips it will be a breeze to get through your Spring-cleaning checklist!
