Start with Your Carpets and Upholstery

Over the last few months, you probably didn’t worry about the carpets or upholstery too much. Now that the curtains are drawn back, it’s easier to see the dust, dirt, and pet care buildup in the natural light.

Start your spring cleaning process with a deep clean of your carpets. You can either rent a deep clean vacuum or hire a company to clean the carpets for you. Many companies will also clean your fabric-covered sofas, chairs, and couches.

Do-It-Yourself All-Purpose Cleaners

For a general-purpose cleaning, you can use a non-abrasive cleanser that is easy to use and you can make right at home. You probably already have many of these items on hand.

  • Baking soda and water – mix the two to the consistency of a paste. This is good for tubs, tile, and grout. Leave the paste on the surface for a few minutes and then rub with a scrub brush.
  • White vinegar, water, and a lemon rind – place in a spray bottle to use on glass showers, mirrors, and wall smudges. It can also deodorize your trash cans.
  • Add a little salt to white vinegar – this is good for cleaning items that are made of brass.
