It’s that time of year again! While there are some people who enjoy Spring cleaning, others do not look forward to it at all. Fortunately, there are some ways to save time with Spring cleaning.

Freshen up your refrigerator with a box of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. It has sodium bicarbonate in it that absorbs odors and stops flavor transfer. This helps keep your foods tasting fresher for a longer period of time. For best results, start by giving the inside of your refrigerator a good cleaning.

Door mats collect dirt, salt, sand, and other things that you don’t want tracked through your home. You can quickly and easily clean outside door mats by spraying them with your garden hose. Leave them in the sun to dry. Use a vacuum to clean the door mats that are inside the house.

It is time to clean the winter dirt off the windows! The quickest way to do this is to raise the blinds or remove the curtains. Use a glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth to clean your windows – streak free. Some people have windows that can be opened into the home for cleaning. Don’t forget to give the outside of the window a good cleaning.

Take advantage of having so many open windows and clean your oven. Start by wiping out the inside of the oven with a damp sponge or cloth. Remove the oven racks and wash them individually with warm, sudsy, water. Rinse them off, and return them to the oven when they are dry. You should do this every four months.

Reusable grocery bags are great for the environment. They do require some maintenance, however. Turn them inside out. Run them through the washing machine regularly to remove food and bacteria. This will work well with canvas or cloth bags.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
