Spring is here! And, whether you're selling your house or not, now is the perfect time to clean up and clean out! Here are 10 great Spring Cleaning Hacks to get the job done in record time!
1. Don't Forget The Blinds!
No duster needed. All it takes is an old sock, kitchen tongs and white vinegar. Slide the sock on the tongs, secure it with a rubber band and dip it into a combination of white vinegar and water! Gets rid of all of the dust and grime!
2. Hard Water Stains Got You Down?
Hard water stains can be an eye-sore, but they may be easier to get rid of then you think. Just soak a few paper towels in white vinegar, then place them on the hard water stains on your faucets, bath tub, etc.. Come back an hour later and wipe clean with a towel, and be amazed!
3. Can't Get The Stains Out of Your White Sink?
No bleach required! Try sprinkling some Baking Soda into the dry sink, adding a little dish soap and scrubbing! Yellow stains don't stand a chance! For more stubborn stains, add a little Lemon Juice to the mix!
4. How To Clean Grout... without Chemicals
Don't waste your money on harsh products that don't always work! All you really need is Hydrogen Peroxide, Baking Soda and a Toothbrush... then start brushing! It really works!
5. How to Clean Your Microwave... The Easy Way
Mix a little White Vinegar and Lemon Juice in a bowl, heat it up in the microwave, remove the bowl, then gently wipe with a damp cloth! Easy and smells great too!
6. Get The Red Wine Out of The Carpet
Make this clean-up easy by pouring some White Wine on the stain (yep, you heard right)! Sprinkle some Baking Soda on top and leave it for a bit. Once a paste forms, scrub and wipe and watch the stain disappear. Works great on clothes too!

7. Clean Your Sponges!
You would be surprised to discover how many germs we actually spread by cleaning with dirty, germ-filled sponges! Just throw your sponges in the microwave! Make sure they're wet, then toss them in and turn the microwave on high for 2 minutes. You'll be eliminating 99% of all the little microbes that might be living in there.

8. Don't Forget Your Ceiling Fan!
I can't see the dust on my ceiling fan, but some of my taller friends can! Make it easy on yourself and just slip a pillowcase over the ceiling fan blades, one at a time, then wipe. Dust falls into the pillowcase, not on your furniture and floors.
9. Tackle That Stinky Garbage Disposal
Everyone likes to gather in the kitchen, and a smelly Garbage Disposal can be a bit embarrassing. Freshen your kitchen by cutting up a lemon and putting a couple of slices in the garbage disposal.
(This is also a great tip to use just before your guests arrive!)
10. People Notice Dirty Windows
Always wash windows on a cloudy day. On sunny days, cleaners will dry and leave streaks. Windex makes a great attachment for your garden hose that makes outdoor cleaning a breeze!
Hope these tips are helpful! Happy Spring Cleaning!
