Yes, it is spring again! It is a time of temperate climate and ideal to go out to enjoy the good weather. It seems already a tradition that we get to work with spring cleaning. If you don’t know where to start, here are some tips:
You can start with windows
Cleaning the inside of the windows is a relatively easy task. If your house is not very large, you can end the task in half an hour. The best for window cleaning is a dry and clean microfiber and glass cleaner.
Follow with the radiators
It is usually lost as part of your weekly cleaning routine, however…. Radiators are a hotbed of dust! To clean them, take a slightly damp microfiber cloth and remove all the dust that has accumulated in the radiator and around it. If by chance you have the heating on, you must turn it off and so you can clean the pipes that go to and from the radiators. If it is very dirty, remember to wash and twist the microfiber frequently to avoid getting the radiators dirty again.
The interior of the cabinets
Most likely, you will clean the outside and front of the cabinets, but from time to time you must also clean the inside. Empty everything from the inside and pass with a clean and moist microfiber. Once cleaned, let it air dry for a few minutes before returning its contents to avoidmoistures and fungi.
Oven and extractor hood
A really challenging task but that needs to be done. Ovens can become a complicated task if they are not cleaned regularly, so be sure to devote some time to this task. Certain oven cleaners require you to leave the product soaking overnight, so plan ahead. While doing so, be sure to also clean the hood.
The time comes for the fridge and freezer
Freezers can be a blessing and a curse! They are excellent for storing food that you have bought in the supermarket at bargain prices, in addition to offering an excellent storage solution for preparing meals and delicious leftovers. However, they have the habit of accumulating unwanted or unused goods. That is why it is important that you frequently check its contents and discard spoiled food (we prefer that you consume it before it deteriorates, nobody likes to throw food …) To clean the freezer, you must first defrost it. Once it is thawed, you can clean it with a soft cloth and any soap solution or detergent. At the same time, empty the contents of your refrigerator on one side and wash the shelves and drawers of the sink, as you would with the dishes. Using the same solution you used in the freezer and clean the empty refrigerator. Replace all shelves, drawers and contents in the refrigerator, making sure that the handles, seals and placed correctly before finishing.
While doing spring cleaning, make sure you don’t overlook the microwave. Place a bowl of vinegar and water in the microwave and add a slice of lemon to scent. Turn on the microwave for a few minutes or until the window has filled with steam. Carefully remove the bowl (you will need a dishcloth as it will be very hot) and place the turntable in the sink. Clean the microwave and the door with a damp microfiber cloth and then wash the turntable as usual. Let air dry for a few minutes and reassemble the microwave.
Washing machine and dishwasher
It makes no sense to clean clothes or dishes in dirty appliances, right? Surprisingly, however, many people never give their white products the much needed cleaning and do not clean the washing machine or dishwasher! It is super simple to clean these two appliances. For the dishwasher, cleaning it can be as simple as putting a short program with a (plastic) cup of vinegar on the bottom. If you can easily access the filters you can also remove and wash them separately. And … ta-tan…. good cleaning and … happy spring! Enjoying this station in a clean house is much better, we assure you!
