Spring is here, and for some of us, that means spring cleaning as well. If you’re preparing your home for sale, it’s even more important. Depending on your habits, the job could be either big or small. Below are a few tips that will help you with your spring cleaning, or any time of year.
Did you know that the kitchen sink can contain more bacteria than a toilet seat? If you’ve ever noticed a smell coming from the disposal, it’s usually because the bacteria have taken over. Disinfecting the sink every few weeks can help keep things clean and sanitary all year-round. Store-bought disinfectants are great, but if you still notice an odd smell, try cutting up a lemon and putting it down there. Turn on the disposal and let it run until everything’s been eviscerated.
While you’re in the kitchen, why not tackle the dishwasher? Put a little baking soda on a damp sponge and wipe all around the edges to remove stuck on food. Run a cycle with your dishwasher empty using cleaner that kills E. coli, or even bleach.
