The days are getting warmer and everyone is talking about spring cleaning. Cleaning your home can be strenuous and time consuming, but we’ve got a few tricks to help you simplify your spring cleaning routine this year.
Swiffers are a great cleaning tool to use at home, but continuously buying replacement pads can be costly. These DIY Swiffer wet pads are washable and reusable, meaning you won’t have to keep replacing them. Plus, you can easily customize the scent with essential oils for an added personal touch.
To keep unwanted dust from spreading while your dusting, use a lint roller on lampshades or fabric surfaces and dryer sheets to wipe baseboards and TV screens. Using a pillowcase to free your ceiling fans from dust will ensure that everything falls into the pillowcase rather than on you or the floor.
Lemons are also great for cleaning. For an easy and simple way to clean your microwave, put sliced pieces of a lemon in a bowl with warm water and microwave it for about one minute. The steam from the water will loosen dirt while the acid from the lemon sanitizes. It’s then simple to wipe clean.
You can’t do spring cleaning without a bit of organizing. After going through areas like your refrigerator or underneath the sink, find ways to organize the items going back into these spaces. Clear bins work well for keeping your fridge in order while still making it easy to find your snacks. And once you’re through with all of your cleaning, return all of your supplies to a simple turntable platform underneath the kitchen sink for convenient and organized storage.
