5 Easy Spring Cleaning Tips

With warmer weather and lighter days, this is a great time of year to Spring clean your home inside and out. It can seem like an overwhelming task to Spring clean the whole home, but when you break it down and take it a portion at a time it can be easier to tackle. We have gathered 5 easy spring cleaning tips to help allievate your Spring cleaning list!

Wall Wash

The biggest area of the home that most likely will need attention is the walls! It’s easy to miss the smudges of dirt and fingerprints on a daily basis, but when you really look close the walls need a touch-up. A mix of simple dish detergent and hot water is the perfect solution to get your walls looking brand new again. Scrub them with a soft cloth and remove any dirt or marks you may find.

Microwave Overhaul

Microwaves can be difficult to clean with all the nooks and crannies and most are always ready for a deep clean. Fill a bowl with a half of a cup of water and squeeze the juice of one lemon into the bowl. Cut that lemon in half and add to the bowl, microwave for 3 minutes. Once the 3 minutes is up, let the bowl sit for 5 additional minutes in the closed microwave. Once you start to wipe down the inside of the microwave, you should notice how easy the grime and food stains come right off. Use the remaining lemon water and a soft cloth to clean the exterior of the microwave.

Barbecue Refresh

Did you know you can clean the grill of your barbecue with an onion? It may sound a little weird but it’s true, this delicious veggie also works as a cleaning tool. Simply, heat your grill to the highest heat and burn off any food scraps or residue. Once the grill is hot, cut an onion in half and poke the back of the half with a fork. Use the onion to clean the grates of your grill, scrubbing hard without breaking the onion. The acid from the onion will help remove any stubborn grime from the grill.

Light Fixture Detail

Spring cleaning is the perfect time to detail and dust all of the light fixtures in your home because it can be easy to forget about them over the year. Use an all purpose cleaner, a soft cloth and a ladder to get inside and around each light fixture in the home. Don’t forget to clean your table lamps, celling fixtures and floor lights.

Multipurpose Broom

Last but not least, dust and cobwebs have a tendency to gather in the corners and in hard to reach areas on the ceiling of the home. So, to conquer this hidden dust attach a small towel to the head of your broom with rubber bands, completely covering the brush part of the broom. This will turn your broom into an extended duster that can reach up to the roof without a step ladder.
