Winter-Cleaning Tips To Make It Easier In Spring
As the outside temperatures drop and the entertaining season arrives, it’s time to start thinking about a little winter cleaning to keep our homes comfortable for all of those cozy nights indoors.
With doors and windows closed tightly and reduced ventilation you will want to avoid harsh chemical fumes and look for naturally-derived cleaning solutions that get the job done to leave you more quality time with love ones.
Here are some simple yet effective cleaning tips to winter clean the hardest-working rooms in your home.
• Try this all-natural solution: use baking soda and vinegar in your kitchen sink drains to remove any unpleasant odours.
• After decorating those holiday cookies, try an all-purpose cleaner like Green Works that is safe to use on everything from counters and tables to appliances and sinks.
• If you want an easy solution for keeping grout and tiles tidy and grime-free, try sandpaper. Just fold the sandpaper into a crease, and work it back and forth along the grout line. If that doesn’t work, you may have better results using a pencil eraser.
• To remove hard-water scale or mildew on shower and faucet heads, soak them in vinegar. If the head isn’t removable, position a plastic bag filled with vinegar over it and tape it on.
• For pet lovers who don’t want to offend our four-legged friends, use baking soda as a natural deodorizer for carpets and rugs. Simply sprinkle, take a breather for five minutes and then vacuum up to help lift pesky pet-based odours.
• A collection of familiar finger prints are quite likely if you own a glass coffee table. Luckily, all you need is a hard-working, heavy-lifting surface cleaner to get it looking brand-new again. Designed to deliver streak-free cleaning on glass and mirrors, Green Works Naturally Derived Glass and Surface Cleaner is an exceptional option for the clean freak in all of us. Plus, now you don’t have to worry about what those little fingers may come in contact with!
