A good, deep spring clean-up is a culture that promotes wellness by keeping your environment clean and organized and helps to extend the feeling of newness that comes with the beginning of a new year well into the summer.
1. For a natural faucet fix, remove water stains with lemon.
Clean and spruce up your faucets this spring by rubbing half of a lemon on the water stains. Citric acid aids in the removal of hard water stains. Then, for our next trip, use the other half of the lemon.
2. Clean your microwave by putting lemon juice and rinds in water and heating them.
Cut a lemon in half and compress the juice into 1/2 cup of water before adding the rinds. Microwave for three minutes and then leave it in the microwave for another five minutes without opening the door. The trapped steam will loosen the dirt, allowing you to clean the microwave with less effort.
3. To get rid of shower head buildup, use white vinegar.
Do you want to clean your bathroom more naturally? Vinegar can dissolve mineral deposits that build up over time in showerheads, resulting in decreased pressure and water flow. To remove buildup, fill a plastic bag with white vinegar, secure it over the showerhead with a rubber band, and leave it overnight. Just make sure to run the shower before getting in, or you’ll end up smelling like vinegar for the rest of the day.
4. Use baking soda to clean stainless steel sinks.
Saturate your sink and faucet with water, sprinkle baking soda on top, and scrub with a sponge. If you need more scrubbing power, mix in some salt with the baking soda.
5. Clean dirty windows and mirrors with newspaper.
In a spray bottle, combine 14 cups of white vinegar, 2 cups water, and two teaspoons of liquid soap. For a streak-free window or mirror, spray the mixture onto the glass and scrub with newspaper. Because the ink acts as a mild abrasive, you can reuse old newspapers.
6. Use rotating turntables to organize your refrigerator and cabinets.
Rotating turntables and lazy Susans aren’t just for the tabletop. After getting rid of old condiments and spices, use this clever storage hack to organize your pantry and refrigerator.
7. To remove burnt-on residue from your ceramic stovetop, use a wet dryer sheet.
Non-abrasive dryer sheets are an excellent way to remove burnt-on food from your stove. Before rubbing the gun away, leave the wet dryer sheet on your stovetop for at least 15 minutes. To clean your oven, follow these guidelines.
8. Use an onion to clean your grill.
Please clean up your grill and get it ready for the summer. To loosen the residue, heat it and spray some white vinegar on the grates. Scrub the area thoroughly with half an onion. Any leftovers will be washed away by the acid in the onion.
9. Allow coffee filters to do more than brighten your day.
Do you have fingerprints, smudges, or dust on your TV screen or computer monitor? Even on delicate TV screens, the fiber in coffee filters is gentle enough to rub them away; don’t press too hard!
10. Unpack and vertically stack your spring/summer clothes.
Are the drawers in your dresser a jumble? Instead of stacking folded clothes flat for easy access, stack them vertically. To keep your drawers in neat rows, stack your clothes inside shoeboxes.
11. To clean toasters and tea kettles, use cream of tartar.
One teaspoon cream of tartar, combined with just enough water to make a milky paste. To restore your stainless steel appliances’ original shine, rub the solution onto them and wipe it away.
12. Before you clean your couch or rug, get to know it.
Don’t let the wrong cleaner ruin your upholstered furniture. The type of solvent to use is not always specified on the manufacturer’s label. Get to know the cleaning codes listed below.
13. Scrape pet hair from your carpet or rug with a window squeegee.
The squeegee’s rubber edge is excellent for gripping and removing pet hair from your rug. Maintain a firm grip and clean up any excess hair as you go. Finish by vacuuming up any remaining hairs on the surface.
14. When rearranging furniture, place clean towels under it to avoid scratching the floor.
Are you looking to spruce up your living space by rearranging your furniture?
15. To keep drawer organizers in place, use Velcro strips.
Attach one end of the grippy strips to the drawer and the other to the drawer organizers. This keeps the organizers in place while allowing them to be removed as needed.
16. Use cotton swabs to restore the spring in your dirty keyboards.
Dirt and crumbs are likely to blame if certain keys are sticking or if your entire keyboard isn’t as responsive as it once was. Sweeping cotton swabs between your keys can remove dust and grime.
