With that said, grab your cleaning supplies and get started now with these spring cleaning tips.
Make Your Doormat Welcoming Again
It’s time to give your doormat the toughest cleaning it can take by shaking out all that grime and dirt it has accumulated. A doormat is your first defense against dirt so it’s important that you keep it nice and clean at all times.
Make Those Windows Squeaky Clean
Fight off dirty windowpanes with rubber-edged squeegees, which will get your windows looking squeaky-clean much faster than a cloth or paper towel ever could. Squeegees also come in a variety of different sizes and come with screw-on extension that will allow you to reach all of those high places.
Shake Out Those Curtains
It’s time to get those curtains looking as good as new. You can accomplish this by simply vacuuming or steam cleaning them. If your curtains need an even deeper clean, you can always drop them of at your local dry cleaners.
Dust Those Lightbulbs Off
You want your lightbulbs to shine bright like a diamond, which is why you need to give them a good polish this spring. Simply unscrew your apartments lightbulbs and polish the bulbs with a dampened microfiber cloth (avoid getting the bulbs metal screw base wet).
Don’t let Stains Win: Restock Your Stain-Fighting Kit
Don’t let stains take over your apartment. Instead, save tablecloths and other household materials from spills and stains by always have your stain-fighting agents nearby. We promise you will thank us the next time you spill some red wine on your pristine white couch (let’s admit we’ve all had this happen).
Keep Your Hardwood Floors Scratch Free
Nothing, and we mean nothing, is worse then scratched up hardwood floors. Stop this disaster from ever occurring by adding surface protectors (thick padded self-adhesive discs) to the undersides of furniture legs and make sure to replace these protectors at least once a year.
Get Your Refrigerator Looking Lean and Clean
Yes, we know that the dreaded spring refrigerator clean out can be an overwhelming task, but you can do it! Make it less of an overtaking by breaking it down over time. For example, start by wiping up spills immediately after they happen so that surfaces won’t become stained. In addition, make it a habit to throw out old food at least once a week and keep your fridge smelling clean by washing the interior with a baking soda solution every couple of months.
