If you are thinking a little more about spring cleaning than you are about flowers, Jenny offers up a great recipe for a natural cleaner: Three parts vinegar, one part water. If you can’t take that vinegar smell, throw in a few drops of lavender essential oil. It will give your house a fresh, clean, and spring-like smell, too.
Spring is the time of year so many of us get out the cleaning supplies and scrub away the winter doldrums- and all of the dirt that accumulates in our homes’ many nooks and crannies throughout the year.
Here is the bad news: Once a year is not enough for most of the jobs around our houses- not even the really big ones.
We give you a cleaning to-do list, complete with how often you should be cleaning various rooms and surfaces in your home. You may find your home is not as clean as you think it is.
We also get advice about which projects you should leave to professionals. The experts at Modernistic Cleaning, of Flint, tell us how often we need to deep clean our carpets and other flooring, upholstery and our vents and ducts. They also explain why that little investment could end up saving us a lot of money and headaches down the road.
