Make Your Home Fresh with Our Spring Cleaning Guide
It’s time once again for spring cleaning! This season is about new beginnings, and what better way to start fresh than by cleaning your home top to bottom? By having a thoroughly cleaned space, it’s much easier to breathe, move and relax. Though cleaning is not the most exciting of tasks, it doesn’t have to be a chore. There are plenty of ways to get your home feeling fresh in no time at all!
No More Pet-sky Stains
For many, a home just isn’t a home without pets. However, animals can make a pretty big mess, particularly when they run into the house after a refreshing mud bath. Old stains can be a real struggle, but the right tools make it so much easier to handle. This portable carpet cleaner
is perfect for spot testing and removing unsightly stains from carpets, furniture, and more! The small size makes it easy to store and take to other parts of the house.
Keep the Air Pure All Year Long
There’s nothing quite as relaxing as smelling fresh flowers—unless you’re allergic. Though spring brings about warm days and gorgeous views, many suffer from allergies that are exacerbated by pollen season. To cut down on scratchy throats and congestion, you might want to consider purchasing an air purifier for your home. Each air purifier on this list from the NY Times
captures dust, bacteria, and allergens, which can help keep your home fresh and healthy.
Donate Your Unused Items
As you clean out your closets and drawers, don’t toss the unwanted items into the trash! Instead, get everything organized and donate your castoffs to a good cause. Not only will you be decluttering your house and making it more comfortable for yourself, you’ll also be doing your part in helping both the environment and those in need. If you live in Orange County, here’s a great resource of places
you can donate your clothes, furniture, and other household items.
Take Advantage of Your Pantry
Spring cleaning is about getting your home healthy, so ditch the harsh chemicals and opt for something gentler and cost-effective by using natural ingredients found around your home to make your cleaning solutions. For example, you can combine vinegar with baking soda and water to give your oven a good scrub. You can also use olive oil and lemon juice to clean the wood in your house, including furniture, banisters, and floors.
