I love Christmas, but there is something satisfying about getting back to a normal pace. I put a ton of work into putting my Christmas decor up, but it comes down on December 26th. I use the week in between Christmas and New Years day to do a deep clean. It’s a little early to be called Spring cleaning, but that’s exactly what it is. I clean out my sons toys, my craft suppliers, books, and all the storage units in the house. It’s like starting the New Year with a clean slate. I’ve compiled a cleaning list to help you get started. I must say the job I hate the most, blinds. Ugh, why do you they get so dusty!? Keep scrolling to see some cleaning tips/tricks.
- When cleaning your microwave, pour 1/4 cup cleaning vinegar and 1/2 water in a microwavable dish and microwave for 2 minutes. Wait 2 minutes after timer goes off and wipe away the loosened food and grim.
- Use baking soda and vinegar to clean your stainless steel sink. Sprinkle baking soda into your sink and spray vinegar on top. Let set, mix in some water, and scrub. Your sink will be sparkling.
- If you have some rust spots in your tub or your bathtub caulking needs cleaning use the baking soda and vinegar trick. Sprinkle baking soda and spray vinegar on top. Let set, mix in some water and scrub.
- Use dryer sheets to dust baseboards. You can use used and or fresh dryer sheets. The static from the dyer sheets snatches the dust right up and the odor is pretty nice too.
