According to an article at rightathome.com, “Household Cleaning Tips”
“Designate junk before you dump. Spring cleaning is a great time to get rid of the “can’t use, doesn’t fit, don’t work” things in your life. But did you know you can donate to charities not just clothes but also office supplies, old computers, used furniture, books, pet supplies and even cars and get a tax deduction? Making the decision to toss is hard for everyone, but knowing in advance where you might donate the objects can help you let go of them more easily. Start by marking a Ziploc Brand Big Bag (XXL size) with the name of each organization you plan to give to. When you sort through your unneeded items, place the appropriate goods in the assigned bag. When you’re done, make a pick-up call to your designated organization(s) or drop off your bags. It’s such a simple way to make a difference—and a terrific way to free up much-needed space!
Multitask like an expert. Do you groan at the thought of lugging multiple cleaning products around or waste time deciding which to use? Lighten your cleaning load by using one product for multiple chores. For instance, Windex® Multi-Surface Antibacterial cleans and sanitizes not only countertops and windows but also appliances, chrome fixtures, mirrors and more—and all without leaving a dull residue behind. So schedule a “Windex Day,” and bring out the streak-free shine on all your surface
Read the labels. Mixing certain cleaning products can be dangerous, so make sure you read labels on all products before using them. For instance, never, ever mix chemical cleaners: bleach and ammonia, for example, create a dangerous gas called chloramine that can injure your eyes and the deep tissues of your lungs. Combining bleach with acid, which is found in some toilet-bowl cleaners, produces a similarly dangerous gas.
Upgrade your cleaning cloths. Windex Original Glass Wipes are perfect to shine stainless steel appliances, countertops, glass and mirrors, and even your car windows!
Add a fresh scent. Try something different this spring by choosing a refreshing new scent for your home. It will make the cleaning experience so much more enjoyable!” To read the entire article click here.
