Spring Cleaning Checklist Part 1

4/13/2017 (Permalink)

Here are 15 household areas that are often forgotten about when cleaning. 

  1. Vents: Make sure to turn off the air conditioning or heat before cleaning them. 
  2. Window Screens: use dish soap and allow them to dry before securing them back into the frames.
  3. Toaster: Unplug first! Hold it upside down over the trash if there is no crumb tray.
  4. Refrigerator Drip Pan: It can catch more than just evaporation, a cleaning solution of water and white vinegar will do the trick.
  5. Condiments: Check to make sure they aren't expired!
  6. Spice Rack: Toss anything past its expiration date.
  7. Garbage Disposal: Run cool water while grinding ice and coarse salt, add citrus slices for a good smell.
  8. Coffee Maker: Fill the water reservoir with white vinegar, run coffee maker 2 times with water before the next brew.
