Day 25 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 19, 2013 Day Twenty-Five

Today’s Spring Cleaning Challenge is to wipe down your patio furniture and set it up.¬† It’s time to uncover the patio furniture or take it out of the shed and get it ready for the season!

Spring Cleaning Tips and Tricks

If you have a patio, it’s probably a good idea to get the patio swept off and sprayed off in preparation for the patio furniture. After you get the patio area ready, grab the outdoor furniture. I always start by spraying all of the furniture down with the hose, then I grab my bucket of cleaning solution and wipe it all down. I also throw my cushions in the washer to give them a little refreshing too. Next I clean the table from top to bottom and pull up all of the chairs. I also put a couple decorative pieces on the table. This year I need to find something new for the top of the table. I am going to head to the Dollar Store for that!

After the main table and chairs are done, I will grab the extra lawn chairs and get them cleaned as well. I am also going to give our shed the “once over.” We have our pool out there they we put up every year, but we also have some other storage in there too. I want to make sure everything is organized and easy to get to before I need to use it!

I won’t use the word “fun” in describing this task, but it sure makes me realize how close we are getting to warmer weather here and the end of this challenge!

Day Twenty-Four Progress

Did you get all of your hardwood floors mopped and shined? ¬†Since I don’t have hardwood I worked on sorting through files to get some new photos to go in my collage frames. I got through most of them and just have one more CD to go through. Then I am getting them printed and into the frames! I am so excited to have some updated photos in those collage frames!
