Spring house cleaning is the perfect time to organize, declutter, and get your home in tip top shape. If you are like most people, this process is probably a routine that has been going on for years. To make sure that you are doing it right, we have compiled a checklist of the essential steps to be taken during spring house cleaning!
Doormats are very useful items, because they can trap more dirt. In order to do this effectively place two mats - one outside the door and another inside. To ensure that your mat is clean you need to take good care of it! Just hose them off or sweep them out on a regular basis then wipe down with an all-purpose cleaner before drying in direct sunlight for best results.
2. Kitchen Sink
Kitchen sink house clean? If you're still feeling like your kitchen smells like garbage, try running a lemon through the disposal.
When you're finally done with your house chores, it's time to tackle the gross and nasty microwave. Fill a large bowl up with one cup of water mixed in some citrus fruit juice (lemon, lime or orange) and stick inside for about five minutes until boiling hot. After cooling down for 5 more minutes open the door carefully so steam doesn't burn you. Wipe off any leftover stains left on the window as well as dust bunnies that might've accumulated from lack of use before scrubbing clean!
4. Reusable Grocery Bags
Reusable grocery bags are a great alternative to plastic, but they can get grimy over time. Look at the care label on your reusable grocery bag and determine what is best for cleaning it. If you machine wash them, make sure that they're not too small or else there will be some extra work to do with hand washing cloths inside of machines because if so then only cold water should be used in order keep any colors from running out onto other clothes or ruining the insulation abilities of your clothing after being washed by hot water- which could lead to shrinking!
5. Cutting Boards
The cut side of a lemon can help remove food stains and smells from your cutting board. For an extra oomph, sprinkle it with salt or baking soda first before placing the fruit on top to get clean results!
It's always a good idea to wipe down shelves and bins on your fridge regularly. Once in awhile, take out the removable shelving- it can be washed with warm soapy water for deep cleaning!
7. Pots and Pans
If you want to get the most out of your pots and pans, remember that they are not one-size-fits all. Depending on what type of food or material it is made from, a pot has its own specific set of cleaning instructions. For example: if you're looking for an easy way to clean burnt in residue off cast iron cookware without ruining the seasoning layer - try adding water with dish soap into your copper cookware then simmering them together before scrubbing away any leftovers using a soft sponge (or pad). The same technique can also be used when dealing with stainless steel containers as well! Not sure about how? No problem; just add some ketchup onto those stubborn spots too!
To keep your oven looking shiny and new, it needs some cleaning once in a while as well! Give your appliance's self-cleaning function a go to remove stubborn baked on grime or if not available then place hot wet cloths over the burned spots for about an hour to help soften gunk up before scrubbing with baking powder & using heavy duty pads. Rinse off any residue afterwards and wipe dry!
9. Stainless Steel Appliances
You can keep your stainless steel surface shiny and new with this simple cleaning solution. Mix one teaspoon of dish detergent to a quart of hot water, then use microfiber cloths to scrub the stain from leftovers or dirt in small sections going against the grain as you clean it off for an even cleaner finish! After rinsing thoroughly with clean hot tap water, dry immediately by using another fresh towel.
10. Shower Curtains
Keeping your shower curtain sparkling clean is easier than you may think. To get started, hang it on the gentle cycle with a few bath towels and any favorite detergent of choice. Ensure that each side has been given ample time for washing before popping them in to dry out or let air-dry naturally so they're ready when needed next!
To make sure your curtains last as long as possible - especially those made from vinyl or plastic - spritz them periodically with an all-purpose cleaner containing bleach every month (or more if necessary). And then rinse off after cleansing by running water over the surface before hopping into a hot steamy session under flowing streams of fresh water... whoo hoo!
11. Shower Drain
The house is a mess, and the drain in the shower clogged up again. Time to pour some baking soda down it followed by vinegar. This will clear out any gunk that has built up over time while freshening things too! The next step? Just run water for 15-30 seconds through your pipes because they'll be so clean afterwards!
After a long winter and all the holiday festivities, it’s time to clean up. Spring house cleaning is an essential checklist that includes doormats, kitchen sink, microwave oven, cutting boards and counter tops. It also includes stainless steel appliances like your fridge and stovetop as well as shower curtains or new ones if you need them!
