It might not be easy or quick but the pay off is well worth it as you make your home feel brand new, so get a pen and paper to make your tailored Spring cleaning list.
Clean Your Cabinets
If you don’t keep up to date with cleaning cabinets over time you can build up a huge amount of dust and grime.
Effectively removing this will take a little bit of elbow grease and time. You should buy a ‘Cabinet Cream’ to eliminate that tough dirt and grime. The product will also add moisture to the wooden cabinet giving it a whole new look! For laminate units, a normal kitchen cleaner will do.
The biggest mistake when cleaning windows is only wiping down the inside view from the house, make sure you get that grime and dirt stuck on the outside as well.
It’s suggested that you do this on a cloudy day as the sun won’t dry out the cleaning product on the window as this leaves ugly and unsightly spots.
Stainless Steel In The Kitchen
Make it sparkle. Give the stainless steel surfaces a good scrub in the kitchen as this is one of the main places where the build up of food and liquids gather.
Take a trip down to the local supermarket and pick up some stainless steel cleaning fluid, there is plenty to choose from.
You should also clean all countertops inside the kitchen as well. An old toothbrush is great to clean around and behind the taps!
Our colleague who has lived in a host of student houses can attest to the fact that fridges can be disgusting if left uncleaned. Scrub the outside with cleaning products and remove the shelves in the fridge to soak them.
If you can’t remove some surfaces inside the fridge just take a soapy sponge and give them a wipe down.
Generally people mop their wooden floors once to twice a week thinking this is correct. You should stop this immediately as this could potentially ruin the flooring due to water damage. It’s suggested that you should mop wooden flooring once a month to prevent this.
Doing these tasks will make the spring clean quick and efficient. Do you have anything you would add to this list? Let us know!
