5 Spring Cleaning Hacks

how to clean your kitchen sink

  1. Rub wax paper over your faucets to keep them shinier and water-spot free!
  2. Cleaning ceiling fans can be a real pain! It typically involves covering the entire bed or couch with a sheet so the dust doesn’t fall all over, then vacuuming again and again (and again!) to make sure it gets picked up… I seriously HATE it! Problem solved completely by using a pillowcase to clean ceiling fans.  (Tip from Real Simple)
  3. Toss your Legos in a mesh bag and then put the mesh bad in your washing machine. The easiest, least painful way to get them all clean fast!
  4. Clean your mattress by sprinkling baking soda over the top of it. You can add some lavender drops to make it smell pretty too!
  5. Clean your blinds with a sock! Mix equal parts vinegar and warm water in a bowl. Put your hand inside the sock, then wet it with the vinegar mixture.  Wipe the dust and dirt off your blinds and watch as it cleans the top and underside the same time!

How to Organize

  1. These 4 steps to organizing will help keep you on task and they will produce awesome results!
  2. Allow yourself have a black hole – It shouldn’t be too big or takeover an entire room, but designating a certain spot where clutter can pile is certainly helpful in keeping the rest of your house clean. ‘Cause let’s be honest, having a perfectly clean house all the time is not realistic. Allowing yourself to have a “black hole” is a good way to do a quick clean when someone calls and says they are on their way. Do a quick pick-up of the house, put everything in your black hole and put it away when you have more time.
  3. Make it smell good. A good smelling house can help mask a mess. And lets be honest, even a clean room that smells gross is not pleasant to be in. I like to use my wax burner to get a good scent through out the whole house!
