5 Spring Cleaning Blind Spots

You may not believe it, but spring is almost here! Since warm weather is approaching on light, flower-laden feet, we say it’s time to open up those windows and give your house a thorough spring cleaning. You probably have the basic tasks covered, but what about those less obvious parts of the house that tend to get overlooked?

Here are five spring cleaning blind spots that each take less than thirty minutes to tackle (now that you know about them).

1. Your doorknobs. All that hand-traffic opens the door to tons of germs!

2. Your washing machine. Your washing machine cleans your clothes, but who cleans your washing machine?

3. Your refrigerator coils. Letting your refrigerator’s coils get dirty is kind of like pinching someone’s nose shut and telling them to do jumping jacks – not nice!

4. Your iron. Over time, the soleplate of your iron gets covered in a yellowish film that can be transferred onto your clothes!

5. Your plant leaves. Plants need showers, too! Dust off the leaves of your houseplants so they can soak up the sunlight and make your home a healthier place.
