Spring cleaning tips

With spring just a few weeks away here are a few cleaning tips to get your house back into tip-top shape after winter. 

  • First of all,  make a checklist of chores. This will help get you organized and keep you that way. 
  • When dusting,  be sure to start at the top and work your way down.
  • Wash walls from the bottom up. This will help  to avoid streaking.
  • Remember to take all your cleaning tools with you so you’re not running back and forth.
  • Clean as you go. It takes a lot less time to remove new dirt than old.
  • Leaving baking soda on carpeting over night will  help absorb musty odors.
  • Use old socks as mitts for cleaning difficult wood work.
  • Wash small knickknacks instead of dusting.
