Spring is only two weeks away and that means it’s time to throw open the windows and break out the Eco-friendly cleaning supplies. It’s spring cleaning time along the Front Range!
Spring cleaning presents a great opportunity to get to some areas of your house that are hard to reach during regular cleanings.
Green spring cleaning tips:
Refrigerator – Clean the floor and wall behind your refrigerator. Don’t forget to dust and clean the refrigerator coils. This helps the refrigerator run more efficiently, reducing your electricity bill.
TV & Entertainment Center – Clean the floor and wall behind your TV and entertainment center. Also take some time to get all the dust off the cables and vent fan grates on your electronics. Make sure they are turned off, unplugged and cooled down before you do. Removing all the excess dust from your electronics will help them run cooler and more efficiently.
Reduce cleaning waste – use microfiber clothes and dish rags for cleaning instead of paper towels. Swap out the Swiffer sweeper for a broom and reusable mop.
Get organized – Getting organized and planning ahead can help reduce stress and reduce the amount of time you are cleaning. Check out this helpful spring cleaning checklist (pdf) from Martha Stewart.
