The Best Spring Cleaning Tips Youve Never Heard Of

Spring is here and it’s time to do some deep cleaning! Many of us have our tried-and-true cleaning methods, but there are some little-known tips that can take your spring cleaning to the next level. Here are some of the best spring cleaning tricks you’ve probably never heard of before:

Use Rubbing Alcohol to Clean Walls and Baseboards

Dip a magic eraser into some rubbing alcohol and use it to easily wipe away grime, fingerprints, and other dirt from your walls and baseboards. The rubbing alcohol will cut through grease and leave your walls looking fresh and new.

Clean Window Tracks with Dryer Sheets

Over time, window tracks accumulate dirt and become harder to open and close. To fix this, simply take a dryer sheet and run it along the track to wipe away dirt and debris. The anti-static properties will help lift up any dust or hair stuck in the track.

Use Olive Oil to Unstick Sticky Drawers

If you have a drawer that keeps getting stuck, rubbing it with some olive oil can help loosen it up. The oil will lubricate the tracks and allow the drawer to glide smoothly again. Let the oil sit for 30 minutes and then wipe away any excess.

Whiten Tile Grout with Peroxide and Baking Soda

That grimy grout between your tile can be notoriously hard to clean. Make a thick paste with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, apply it to the grout, and let it bubble and fizz for 5-10 minutes. Scrub with an old toothbrush and rinse – your grout will look new again!

Freshen Stale Carpets with Vinegar

Give dingy, stale-smelling carpets new life by sprinkling them with vinegar and letting it sit for an hour before vacuuming. The vinegar smell will dissipate but it leaves carpets looking cleaner, brighter and fresher than before.

Use Dryer Sheets to Dust

Dryer sheets work great as disposable dusters. Run them over ceiling fan blades, lampshades, blinds, and other surfaces that attract dust to lift it away with ease. The anti-static properties of dryer sheets help grab onto dust better than many traditional dusters.

Clean Out Your Washing Machine

Over time, residue from laundry detergent and fabric softener can build up in your washing machine, leading to mildew and odors. Do a deep clean cycle by running it empty on the hottest setting with 2 cups each of vinegar and baking soda. This will break down any grime and leave your machine fresh.

Use Salt to Clean Pots and Pans

For baked-on, caked-on food, make a paste with salt and lemon juice and apply it to the pan for 10 minutes before washing as normal. The salt is abrasive enough to help loosen the grime but gentle enough not to damage non-stick surfaces. This can save you lots of scrubbing!

Clean Windows with Coffee Filters

Coffee filters are lint-free, so they make an excellent tool for getting streak-free windows. Simply dampen a filter with window cleaner and use it to wipe down your windows for a perfectly clear shine. The coffee filters are also disposable so you can easily do many windows with a single filter.

With these tips, you can take your spring cleaning to new heights this year! What are some of your best tricks for getting a spotless springtime home? With a little extra effort and some clever cleaning hacks, you can have the cleanest house on the block this spring.
