Day 18 Spring Cleaning Challenge

It’s that time of year again-Spring! When the last of the fall leaves finally come off of my tree in the front yard, the flowers start to bloom, the birds are chirping, the days are longer, and hopefully it’s getting warmer. Well I guess here in Indiana I’m still waiting on the getting warmer part! Then comes the thought of Spring cleaning. A thought that I push way to the back of my mind, but it still creeps back to the front.

I definitely want to do a good Spring cleaning, but just wasn’t sure where to start and then Wham! There the answer was in my email box. Home Made Simple sent me the solution. A 30 day Spring cleaning plan. Home Made Simple is a company owned by Proctor and Gamble. Their website has recipes, organization, crafts, decorating, DIY projects and more!

Friday April 12, 2013 Day Eighteen

Today’s challenge is to wash any slipcovers and steam clean couches and chairs if possible. I also know that some upholstery steam cleaners have furniture attachments on them, so make sure to check yours if you have one. It may just have this feature.

Spring Cleaning Tips and Tricks

We spot clean our furniture, and just recently used a cleaner and did all of the furniture; probably about three days before this challenge started. I must have been predicting it! Today I will be cleaning out the junk drawer. This is something personal that I added on day one to my list. The junk drawer is in the kitchen and as you can imagine it is a catch all for just about everything. It’s time for me to go through that and get it pared down and put things in their proper place. It’s been getting harder to open and close so I know there are things in there that don’t belong. Good luck with today’s challenge!

Day Seventeen Progress

By now you should have dusted all of your furniture, electronics, and mirrors in your home. I got all of mine done with the exception of the office desk, because we just moved things around and there is too much on it right now to even think about dusting it. Overall the challenge was pretty painless. I usually dust things regularly so I didn’t have too much dust buildup. The places I had to work a little extra were the higher shelf and some places I have neglected. Needless to say they are all sparkling and shiny now!
