Easy Ways for Spring Cleaning

Easy Ways for Spring Cleaning 

Chinese New Year is around the corner, probably it’s time to clean-up mess, to welcome another new beginning. So cleaning effort should not be overlooked. The following methods are suggested to complete the task easily: 

Declutter Closets 
Organizing your closet is the very first step to begin with. Take everything out and sort into three piles: keep, donate and throw. Just get rid of those unused stuffs like clothes and accessories, and organize the rest of how you get dressed in the morning. Your closet will look appealing, and your everyday routine will go smooth and easy. 

Cleaning Painted Walls
Consider to clean your painted walls with a clean cloth or sponge and water. If that doesn’t work, dip the rag or sponge into water mixed with a little dishwashing liquid, the milder the better. If the stain persists, apply a few drops of soap directly onto the wet sponge or cloth you’re using. For more stubborn cases, you can apply a little soap right on the stain. Make sure that whatever you do to get rid of the stain, rinse the wall afterward with plain water.

Caring for Wall Tiles
Cleaning bathroom and kitchen tiles with a cleaner that has “neutral pH’ ingredients. You can also mix baking soda and water for a homemade cleaner: pour ½ cup baking soda into 2 gallons water and mix very well. Then apply the liquid with a string mop or sponge mop. For grout, use the same baking soda and water mixture.

Reorganize Bookshelves
Sort books by size and subject, remove and discard any ripped dust jackets. Line books, some vertically, some horizontally, in a rhythmic pattern. This will relieve the monotony of rows.

Taking care of Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is easy to clean. Wash it with soap or mild detergent and warm water, followed by clean water rinse is usually quite adequate for it. To keep it bright and clean, using a light mist of wax-based aerosol spray. Lastly, don’t use anything abrasive, you don’t want to scratch or ruin the surface.

Freshen up Curtains
Curtains need regular cleaning to prolong their life and keep them looking as good as new. If the fabric’s washable, you should be able to clean and iron them at home: ironing is most effective while they’re still slightly damp. And look out of mildew, this often accumulates when the fabric rests on a damp and dusty windowsill or against courtyard doors, where condensation gathers.
