Tips & Tricks for Keeping Your Home Fresh

Sometimes your home needs a deep clean. Spring cleaning is here so we’re helping by giving you some of our best tips and tricks on how to keep your living spaces looking clean and smelling fresh!

Glass Stove Top

The glass stove top can be a tricky one to keep clean, especially if the residue has been sitting on the glass for long periods of time. To prevent any damage to the stove top, it is best to remove any residue as soon as possible. One way to clean the surface is to evenly mix hydrogen peroxide, dawn dish soap, and baking soda. Use a brush with bristles to gently scrub the areas needing attention.

Washing Machine

To keep your clothes smelling fresh and your washing machines clean all you need to do is let the top load washer fill with water as high and hot as possible, add a quart of white vinegar. Let the washer agitate for about a minute, then let it sit for an hour. While you’re waiting you can use a toothbrush or similar item to scrub the creases and rims of the washer to make sure all parts are being cleaned. Once you feel the vinegar has set for a long enough time, you can let the cycle finish through. Lastly, run another wash with one cup of baking soda to neutralize! You may need to wipe down the sides after the process is complete. Enjoy your fresh top load washing machine.

Microwave

Place the bowl in the microwave and cook for 5 minutes, then let it sit for a couple minutes after cooked. Use a damp cloth the wipe out the stuck on grim and it will come off easily!
