Spring Cleaning Tips - 5 Time And Money Saving Ones

It’s Spring cleaning time and that means it’s also time to deep clean your home. The following 5 Spring Cleaning Tips will help to refresh and revamp your home and have it ready for Spring in no time. They are also environmentally friendly and frugal cleaning tips so you can get a lot of spring cleaning done for less time and money.

My Spring Cleaning Tips:

1. Save time when you clean your home by having a plan in place. If you try to clean your entire house all in one shot, you may become overwhelmed and aimlessly go from one room to the next without getting any one place fully clean. Be sure to keep your cleaning supplies in one place and organized, or you will waste time and energy gathering your supplies. I use one of these totes and bring it from room to room. Also, remember that you might want to include the exterior of your house in the spring cleaning plans. For example, a deck at your home would be a nice place to chill out and enjoy an evening in the Spring. It might need to be cleaned or repaired if it isn’t in good condition. Cleaning the outdoor deck can be done yourself, or you can find professionals who can carry out deck repair melbourne based or wherever you are located to get a deck back to its original condition. That said, while cleaning up the inside forms a major part of spring cleaning, some exterior elements like the roof, eavestrough, or driveway might need a thorough clean-up too. In such cases, it might do well to hire professionals who can come in and handle that for you. Tasks like cleaning up the gutter, pressure washing your driveway and home exterior might be something you would ideally want the experts to handle. You can easily schedule a day and time with service providers like NICK’S Window Cleaning who can send in their people to do the work for you.

2. Save money by re-using dryer sheets! You can place dryer sheets in many places around your house to keep things smelling fresh and clean such as closets, drawers, laundry hampers, and the bottom of trash cans. If you have a pair of shoes that need freshening but don’t have time to wash them, or they can’t be washed, stuff them with a couple of dryer sheets to freshen them up.

3. Save money on cleaning products by using baking soda instead! A solution of baking soda and water makes a terrific cleaner. Usually 1 part baking soda to 5 parts water works best and can be used to clean floors, counters, tables and bathroom surfaces. Have glass shower doors? Use a little baking soda on a sponge to eliminate soap scum without streaks. White vinegar is another household product that can be used for many cleaning purposes around your home. Pour some in the toilet bowl and let it sit when you go to work or overnight. When you get home, or in the morning, flush and watch the stains in the bowl vanish. Another trick, put some white vinegar on old newspapers and clean windows and mirrors in a circular motion.

4. Don’t hold on to unwanted or unused items. They will only clutter your home and waste space. Instead of throwing things away, donate them to your local goodwill. Not only will you be helping other people, but donating can also help you from a financial standpoint because most donations are tax deductible. Keep a small box or bag in your closets, and when you are ready to part with the item, place it clean in the bag.

5. Refresh your carpets by working baking soda into the pile and allowing to sit over night. It will help loosen dirt and absorb odors. If you have particularly trampled areas from heavy foot traffic, use a large damp towel and an iron on high. Place the damp towel over the area and iron. It will help the pile stand back up again. Just keep the iron away from the carpet directly or it may scorch.

Hopefully some of these Spring cleaning tips will help you out. Let me know of any great tips you have!
