Now that the weather is warming up, it’s time to start spring cleaning! We’ve got three tips for you that’ll leave your spaces sparkling. Read on for tips that will give spring the welcome it deserves:

  • Cleaning your Refrigerator

Looking for a way to clean out your fridge that will leave it looking like brand new? Using a combination of soda and salt water is sure to do the trick. The bubbliness of the soda when combined with the grittiness of the salt makes it the perfect deep cleaner!

  • Removing Lime Buildup around your Faucet

Nasty lime buildup? No problem. Simply place paper toweling around the faucet and soak it with vinegar. Let the paper towels sit for about an hour and just like that the buildup will have softened making it easy to remove!

  • Cleaning your Window Screens

Fresh spring air means you’re wanting to open your windows, right? Well who wants to open their windows when they’re covered with dust? Not us! The best way to clean your window screens is to use a scrap of carpeting. The coarseness of the carpet makes the perfect brush to remove all the dirt!
