Is your place starting to get noticeably dirty? Smelling things you probably shouldn’t be? It’s probably time to roll your sleeves up and get to cleaning. It’s that time of year for Spring cleaning. Tips and pointers are always needed and necessary, especially for those who aren’t sure what to do. So here are a few helpful Spring cleaning tips that should steer you in the right direction when it comes to keeping your place clean.
Stinky Food Containers
There must have been a few occasions where you were using a plastic bowl or container and were able to smell the food from a week before. It’s definitely gross. One sure-fire way to end this problem is to take one tablespoon of baking soda and wash the container with some hot water.
Cleaning Out the Dishwasher
Even things that we use to clean need to be cleaned every once in awhile. Let’s start with the dishwasher. Run a cycle with a cup of vinegar in a bowl on the top rack. Then run another cycle with some baking soda sprinkled on the bottom rack. Combined, these two things will help wash away any food particles and will keep the dishwasher smelling fresh.
Clean the Baseboards
Here is something we don’t often notice, the baseboards. Home Depot has some Magic Erasers that work wonders and really do the trick. Use these to keep your baseboards looking white, with no scuff marks.
