It’s time for spring cleaning!

With warmer weather it’s time to open the windows, let in the fresh air and start your spring cleaning. This time of year our homes need more than vacuuming, sweeping and dusting. Now is a great time to organize closets, dust the blinds and clean the garage.

Here are a few ideas to add to your spring cleaning list:

-Clean light fixtures and replace bulbs

-Wash walls, baseboards, and door knobs

-Empty the coat closet

-Clean stove top and oven

-Wash windows and screens

-Touch up the ceiling fans

Make a realistic check list so you can mark off those assignments as they are finished. Choose one room at a time to arrange, deep clean and organize.

Before you start your spring cleaning projects make sure you have all of the supplies:

-Wood Polish

-Glass Cleaner

-Paper Towels

-Dusting Spray

-Boxes/Trash Bags

-Cloths, Micro fiber or dish towels

All of these items can be found at any of our locations and remember to check the weekly ad for additional savings. Get ready to start tackling those cleaning projects you have been putting off during the cold winter days.
