Spring Cleaning...The Forgotten Areas
Like it or not many of us are spending more time at home than we had planned. We might be working from home, caring for our family members, working in our gardens, streaming videos or reading books.
For many, this is also the time of year when we planned to tackle some Spring Cleaning! And why not! We have the time.
Below is a list of often forgotten areas that still need cleaning.
Make your checklist of what works for you and take your time. You don’t have to do it all in one day!!!
▢ Refrigerator- Move it and clean behind it. Don’t forget the coils. Don’t forget to clean the top of it.
▢ Microwave- Give it a good cleaning inside.
▢ Oven and Stovetop- Follow your manufacturer’s instructions to clean the inside of it.
If you have stainless steel, Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner is a good one to get rid of streaks.
▢ Cabinets -Now is a good time to give them a good cleaning. Murphy’s Oil Soap or similar products are good ones.
▢ Drawers- Remove everything in your drawers and clean and organize them.
▢ Knife block-Clean your knife block (if you have one) and your utensil holder. You can wash it with warm soapy water, then really clean it with a solution of Clorox or vinegar.
▢ Pantry- Most of us will do this when we’re asked to donate food for the boy Scout collection. Now, though, is a good time to really take stock of what you have. Discard out-of-date food products. If store food in a container, consider removing the food and giving the container a good cleaning.
▢ While you’re tackling the bathroom, don’t forget your linen closet or medicine cabinet. Toss out products that are outdated or that you don’t use. If you have extra towels tucked at the back of your closet, refresh them with a good washing.
