Tuesday Tips and Tricks: SPRING CLEANING!

  • To removing heel marks , take pencil eraser and rub them off.
  • Wall cleaner, mix 1/2 c. ammonia, 1/4 c. white vinegar, and 1/4 c. baking soda to 1 gal. warm water.
  • Dust blinds by wrapping a cloth around a ruler. Spray cloth with a dusting spray and run the flat end across each blind.
  • Glass shower doors will sparkle if cleaned with white vinegar.
  • Lemon furniture oil will remove water spots on metal frames.
  • Dust your book shelves, taking out all books to get all dust. - To protect books from dust, crisp lengths of linen can be hung from shelves.
  • Tired of dried and hard to clean candle wax stuck on votives? Place the glass candle holders in the freezer for a few hours. Once frozen, the wax will shrink just enough to pop right out.
  • Keep your fabric lampshades dust-free with an adhesive lint roller, hold lamp shade steady and roll roller over the exterior.
  • Remember to Dust the tops of light fixtures, bulbs and the top of cabinets (while also in the inside).
More to come next Tuesday!
