5 Spring Cleaning Shortcuts

5 Spring Cleaning Shortcuts
Posted March 31st, 2014 @ 5:30am


Many people are afraid to take on "spring cleaning" because they get overwhelmed with tackling some of the bigger items around the house. According to Yahoo, here are 5 SPRING CLEANING SHORTCUTS:


1. Curtains: Simply toss them in the dryer on the "air fluff" cycle without any heat. They'll get refreshed. If you don't even want to take them down, simply use the upholstery attachment tool on your vacuum for a quick dusting.

2. Mattress: Remove the bedding and mattress cover, and give your mattress a good vacuuming. Then, run a household or garment steamer over the mattress. Finally, sprinkle baking soda over the mattress and let it sit for about 15-min to remove odors before vacuuming it up.

3. Windows: Don't clean windows on a sunny day because the cleaning solution dries too quickly, and you end up with streaks that are really tough to remove.
