Spring Cleaning Made Easy

The first day of spring is just around the corner, which means it's about time to freshen up your home. Whether you're looking to deep-clean the whole house or just do a little sprucing up, we've gathered 11 top tips on what to clean this spring.

Windows
Give your windows extra love by washing them with glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth. Wait for an overcast day as direct sunlight can cause streaks.

Kitchen Sink
After deep-cleaning your sink, run a lemon or orange peel in the garbage disposal—followed by cold water—and enjoy the fresh aroma.

Cutting Boards
The marks left on your cutting board are not permanent. Run the side of a lemon over the board to remove food stains. For an extra clean surface, add baking soda.

Stainless-Steel Appliances
Bye-bye fingerprints! Mix 1 teaspoon dish detergent and 1 quart hot water, then use a microfiber cloth to watch dirt, grime and fingerprints disappear.

Curtains
Toss your curtains in the washer for a thorough clean.

Fan
Use a pillow case to grab the dust you rarely clean from ceiling fans, light fixtures, crown molding, baseboards, and more.

Closet
This is the perfect time to purge unused clothes that you know you won't wear.

Washing Machine
It's a good time to clean the appliance that cleans everything for you. Check manufacturer instructions for guidance on how to clean your machine.

Patio Furniture
With the weather warming up, you'll want to get outdoor furniture ready for use. Add dish detergent to a bowl of warm water and go to work!

Air
Replacing your HVAC filters is one of the most important parts of spring cleaning! It's an inexpensive and easy way to help ensure you're breathing clean air indoors.

Décor
After all is said and done, add brighter colors to help create a lighter space in your home.
