21 Spring Cleaning Tips & Tricks

Spring cleaning is one of those chores that no one enjoys yet, it needs to be done. Today I’m sharing 21 spring cleaning tips & tricks to keep your home in top shape year round. 


1. Fill a dish wand with half vinegar and half dawn dish soap. Keep the wand in your shower. Before taking a shower, scrub the walls with the wand then rinse off. Source
2. To clean fan blades, toss a pillowcase over the blade then slowly pull off. All of the dust and dirt will stay contained inside the pillowcase. Source

3. Clean your burners without scrubbing. Place in a sealed ziploc bag with a 1/4 cup of ammonia. Leave overnight then wipe clean with a sponge. Source

4. Spend less time shining your faucets, sinks, and tiles by polishing them with turtle wax. The wax acts as a protective barrier preventing water and soap buildup. Source

5. Mix a few drops of essential oil with one cup baking soda. Sprinkle on your mattress and let sit for one hour before vacuuming. The baking soda will absorb any dirt, moisture and odors while the essential oil will leave the mattress smelling fresh. Source
