Spring is in the air which means that in addition to longer days and warmer weather, summer is just around the corner and it’s time to shed our winter ways and get into the spirit of spring! And what better way to kick off this spring than with an organized home that looks brand new?  If you're the type of person that'd rather spend your spring bathing in the sun than at home scrubbing away at tiles, then we wrote this blog just for you. We're here to share some of the tips and secrets we've gathered from numerous homeowners that'll save you time and money on your spring cleaning. So start putting those cleaning gloves on and get ready to turn that frown upside down because here are 10 quick and easy spring cleaning tips that every homeowner wants to know.  And just as a side note: Get those taxes filed before the April 15th deadline in order to really enjoy your spring :)

KITCHEN CLEANING & ORGANIZING TIPS:

1. Refrigerator: So first thing's first - you should start off by removing any stains or food spills on the drawers and shelves. Instead of wasting money on cleaner, do it at home by combining salt and soda water. This is the best refrigerator cleaner because the bubbling action of the soda water combines with the abrasive texture of the salt which makes it easier to scrub off stains. Once you've got all the grime off, we suggest investing in some fridge coasters to protect your drawers and shelves from any future spills. This will not only preserve your fridge, but it will also add a nice pop of color. Check out Fridge Coasters for some options and don't forget to replace it every 6 months. Add some bins from TJ Maxx to really get that organization strategy going.

2. Faucet: The best way to get rid of lime buildup around the faucet it is to lay paper towels over the fixture, soak it with vinegar and let it set for an hour. The deposits will soften and become easier to remove. When it comes to kitchen appliances, vinegar works wonders.

3. Garbage Disposal: If you have a garbage disposal, throw some hoot water and orange peels down it to freshen it. Turn it on and allow the peels and water to deodorize.

4. Stovetop: Fill a bowl up with hot tap water and then mix in some dishwash soap. Get a rag and let it soak in the mixture for about 5 minutes. In the meantime, apply a generous amount of baking soda on your stovetop. Pull out the rag from the mixture, lay it on top of the baking soda and let that sit for about 15 minutes. Once it comes time, scrub the rag over the baking soda and you should see the grime slowly start to come off your stovetop.

LIVING ROOM CLEANING & ORGANIZING TIPS:

5. Windows & Screens: If you have screens, clean them with a scrap of carpeting; It makes a powerful brush that removes all the dirt. You can clean windows with a rag and soapy water, and then dry them with another rag. Another option would be to go to an auto-parts store and buy a windshield squeegee, which makes your window-cleaning job a bit easier.

6. Curtains: If your drapes or curtains are looking drab, take them out of the window, remove the hooks and run them through the air-fluff cycle in the dryer along with a wet towel (to draw off the dust) for 15 minutes. Hang them back in the windows immediately.

7. Fan: Clean the blades of a ceiling fan with an extra pillow case you have lying around. Use one to slide onto the blades of your ceiling fans, and then wipe the blades off inside the case.

BEDROOM CLEANING & ORGANIZING TIPS:

8. Blankets/Sheets: Sometimes comforters, blankets and pillows don't need to be cleaned, but they do need to be aired out after a long winter in your closed-up home. Take them outside and hang them on a clothesline for a day.

Cleaning sheets

9. Mattress: If your mattress needs a little freshening up you can sprinkle about a 1/4 cup of baking soda that has been mixed with 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oils (lavender is a great choice) all over the surface of your mattress. Let this sit for about 30 minutes and vacuum it up with a clean hose attachment or nozzle on your vacuum cleaner.

10. Closet/Drawers: It's easy to accumulate clothes, shoes, and accessories you're not 100% in love with. Often pieces in your closet will be a little short, a little funky, a little tight, a little baggy — a little "something" that makes you not 100% in love with them. Get them out, thin out what you have and let the things you love shine. Then take a trip down to the container store or to Walmart/TJ Maxx/Ross and find yourself some drawer dividers. Store easy-to-miss essentials, like camisoles, hose, and your favorite socks, in individual compartments.
