While many people think of Spring as the start of allergy season and outdoor fun, several people see Spring as when they get their home deep cleaned and ready to be seen during those Summer gatherings. For those who will be moving during the next few months, Spring cleaning is often a necessity to ensure that this home is ready to be seen on the market. We have compiled several easy ideas that you can use during your Spring cleaning to get your home and items looking great with a little effort!
Stain Removal With Two Ingredients
Whether you have a stain on your couch or your carpet, there is an easy DIY stain removal that many people swear by; Dawn dish soap and hydrogen peroxide. Mix one part dish soap with two parts hydrogen peroxide, then spread the solution over the stain. Wait anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, then dab off, and this works great for light-colored items. If you use this on darker-colored items, be sure not to leave this on as long as it will bleach the fabric.
Dusting With Dryer Sheets
Dusting is one of those chores that most people hate to do. However, you can make this a bit easier with dryer sheets. Take dryer sheets and use these as dusting rags. You will find that this can help repel dust in the future. And you will find that it can leave a pleasant fragrance in the room when you are done.
Baking Soda Has Many Uses
Baking soda is one of the items you will want to have on hand to clean. Those who find a stubborn smell in a room can sit out a bowl full of baking soda, and this baking soda will absorb the smell. If carpets are smelling, sprinkle some baking soda on the carpet, let it sit, and then vacuum it up later.
Make A List of Everything to Do
You can make your Spring cleaning a bit easier by making a list of what to do. You can add a few more detailed items to this list in areas you really want to focus on.
