Below are a few tips to get your spring cleaning underway so that you can enjoy a summer by the pool.

  1. Clean window screens with an extra piece of carpeting. It acts as a brush and removes dirt.
  2. Clean windows with a rag and soapy water, and then dry them with newspaper.
  3. Window Blinds and Curtains:  Remove curtains and throw them in the washing machine to wash. Place the blinds in a tub filled with water and cleaner and simple wash away the grime. Once they have finished washing both you can hang up to dry.
  4. Clean ceiling fan blades. Take a duster or a pillow case to remove the bulk of the dust and follow up with some furniture polish and a rag.
  5. Blankets and Comforters don’t always need to be washed, but they do need to be aired out. Take them outside and hang them on a clothesline for the day. Should you not have access to a clothes line fluff them in the dryer on low heat for approximately 30 minutes.
  6. Vacuum and shampoo all carpets and rugs. This will remove dirt and dust.
  7. Cabinets clean and organize your cabinets.
  8. Closet and dresser purge:  Get rid of any worn clothes and donate to your local charity.
  9. Bathroom and Kitchen: Lime Buildup, a good way to get rid of lime buildup around the faucet is vinegar. Soak a paper towel with vinegar and lay it over the fixture for an hour. The lime deposits will soften and be easier to remove.
  10. The refrigerator, a good cleaner is salt and soda water. The carbonated action of the soda water combines with the texture of the salt makes a great simple cleaner.
