The first day of spring is a month away, but already the daffodils are starting to bloom! You don’t have to wait to refresh your entire home, you can start today! Discover simple ways to jumpstart your spring cleaning routine, so you can spend less time cleaning when March arrives.
Tackle the Fridge
Even with regular maintenance, the refrigerator can still become unorganized and unhygienic over time. It’s important to empty it completely and deep clean it once a month. If you haven’t already, remove all of the items from your refrigerator, combine salt and soda water, and use a towel to wipe down all of the interior surfaces. Toss any expired items while you’re at it!
Clean the Faucet
Lime buildup around the faucet can seem tricky to remove, but with the right mixture it can come off easily! Simply lay paper towels over the fixture, then soak the entire area with vinegar and let sit for an hour. This will allow for the deposits to soften and become easier to wipe away.
Open the Windows
There might still be a chill in the air, but open the windows and clean the screens with a brush or cloth. Cleaning the screens now ensures that you won’t allow dirt or dust indoors once the temperature increases. Use a rag and soapy water to clean the surface of the windows, and use a clean rag to wipe them dry.
Dust the Ceiling Fans
If your ceiling fans have been sitting dormant all winter, they are most likely filled with dust and other particles. Use a step ladder and a wet rag to dust the blades of your ceiling fans. By dusting them now, you won’t have to worry about spreading dirt throughout the house when you turn them on this spring.
