Let’s be honest. Nobody likes to clean, but when Spring rolls around, and you’re staring at holiday clutter and dust, the motivation to spruce up your home in time for Summer becomes a yearly tradition. Check out these do-it-yourself easy (and all-natural) Spring cleaning tips from a Calgary home builder to make everything a little more bearable:
1. Remove water stains from faucets naturally. Take half a lemon and simply rub on all faucets for a fresh smelling sparkle.
2. Clean appliances by heating lemon rinds and hot water and then wipe clean!
3. Use old newspapers to shine dirty windows and mirrors! Mix ¼ cup of white vinegar, two cups of water and two teaspoons of liquid soap in a spray bottle. Spray onto glass and wipe clean with paper.
4. Clean your grill with an onion. Heat, spray with white vinegar and then firmly scrub with half an onion.
5. Use coffee filters to shine TVs or other electronics for a streak-free clean.
6. Use a window squeegee to scrape pet hair from carpets.
7. Avoid scratches on floors by placing clean towels under furnishings if a re-arrange is in your plans.
8. Use Velcro strips to keep drawer organizers in place.
9. Use a butter knife and dust collector wipe to clean air vents.
10. Recycle old socks to use as dusting mitts.
