Amazing Spring Cleaning Tips

It with the recent rainstorms, it might not feel much like spring. According to the calendar and the “leap forward” with our clocks, we a definitely in the spring zone and that means it is time to engage in spring cleaning your home. To get that job done, you should consider putting these amazing tips to work:


Use Humidity to Defy Dust

Does it seem like no matter what you do, there is always dust in your home? The culprit could be your humidity level. Low humidity creates a kind of static electricity cover throughout the home. That causes dust to “stick.” On the other end, high humidity creates the perfect field for dust mites. So what is the solution? Keeping your home’s humidity level between 40% and 50%. That level will provide a one-two punch that can wipe out static and dust mite growth. A small humidifier can handle this task.

Apply a Car Product to Keep Shower Doors

Anyone with a glass shower door knows how quickly they can get grimy with soap scum. Some folks opt for a squeegee in the shower that they use to clean every ever session but you might not always have time for that. Instead, look for a repellent product that is made specifically for car windshields. It is available at most auto parts stores. When applied to your shower is creates an invisible barrier that causes water and soap to bead and drip away.

Seal Your Stone Countertops

Just as you can seal your shower doors, you should also seal your natural stone countertops. This is probably something that was done when the tops were first put in but it should be reapplied twice a year. Just think of how many times you’ve wiped down that counter. It is important to make sure the counters are clean before you apply the sealant otherwise the grim will be trapped. A good way to test is to pour a bit of water on the countertop. If it doesn’t bead up right away, then it is time for a new coat of sealant.
