Spring clean is traditionally the one time of year when every square inch of your home is cleaned. Nothing is better than coming home to a clean house after a project like this. Spring cleaning is also about details. There are a lot of things that get neglected. Here are some terrific spring cleaning tricks for those “forgotten” areas:
DIY Jewelry Cleaner
As long as your home is going to be sparkling, so should your jewelry. Heat a cup of water in the microwave to two-minutes. Then mix in one tablespoon of salt, one tablespoon of baking soda and one tablespoon of Dawn dish soap. Then just drop your jewelry in and let it soak for ten minutes. When the ten minutes are up, wash off the pieces. Easy.
Baseboards get a lot of scruffs. You can dust and mop those baseboards but that won’t automatically remove the marks left by shoes. Magic Erasers can take care of those scruffs. They even come with easy to hold handles. It’s perfect for touch ups. If the grime has built up, then you might need to scrub all the baseboards by hand. Of course, a fresh coat of paint never hurt but is certainly more labor intensive.
Cleaning Dish Sponges
How often do you throw out dish sponges because of a funky smell? They might still have some cleaning power left in them. To clean them out, get the sponge wet and place it on a paper towel along with a microwave-safe container with water inside. Heat the sponge for two minutes and that will wipe out the bacteria and get it smelling fresh again. Just be sure to let it cool off before you use it again.
Get Rubbish Hauled Away
Do you have things in your home that you “clean around?” These could be pieces of furniture you have in storage down in the basement or in a spare room. You might have old computers and other electronic gear tucked in a closet or under the bed. All of those things can be cleared out with a call to Junk King Indianapolis.
