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.
