If you’re like us, you’re ready for some warmer weather and more sunshine after a long winter. The good news is that spring officially starts on March 20th. The spring season also means it’s time for that annual ritual… spring cleaning!
Before you jump back under a blanket, you don’t have to stress about spring cleaning. We’re here to help to five spring cleaning hacks that will help have your apartment sparkling in no time!
Make A Plan
Don’t want spring cleaning to take an entire day? The first hack is relatively simple, but something few people do. Make a plan ahead of time! Apartment Guide offers great planning tips, including how to stock up properly, plan for each room, and clean efficiently. This resource is a great place to start!
Cut Through Microwave Grim
We’ve all been there… a dirty microwave we don’t know how to clean, especially with lots of grim. Here’s an easy way to clean a dirty microwave: Add two cut lemons to water in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the bowl inside the microwave for about five minutes until the water is boiling. Let it sit for a couple of minutes then wipe down the inside. It’s like magic!
Tackle Stubborn Stains
Stains happen! Whether it’s on furniture, clothing, or carpet. Clark.com has tips on how to treat common household stains such as nail polish remover for lipstick. Another great ide is repurposing dryer sheets to wipe baseboards and buff water spots. Brilliant!
Cut Down on Dust
Dusting is something we do year-round. But spring cleaning also means it’s time for a much deeper dusting. It’s one of our least favorite chores, which is why we love these dusting tips from Apartment Therapy. Advice like using the right tools and dusting from top to bottom are great. The preventative tips are super helpful too!
Your dinner exploded all over your stove. Now what? No matter your stovetop type, pretreat your stovetop in the future with a buffing wax, like the kind for cars, and voila! You’ll notice that your stove is much easier to clean up when dinner doesn’t go as planned.
At HHHunt Apartment Living, we believe it’s how you live that matters and using these cleaning tips will help you spend less time cleaning and more time doing the things you love the most. Happy Spring Cleaning!
