Spring Cleaning at Acero Haagen Park in Vancouver, WA
Spring is a time for new beginnings and fresh starts! Keeping your home fresh and clean is good for the mind and body, especially for folks who are still working from home. Deep cleaning can be a daunting task, read on for some spring cleaning tips to get you started on refreshing your Acero Haagen Park apartment home in Vancouver, WA.
Start from the front of the house and work inward.
This is typically a gentle start to spring cleaning, since the entryway isn’t as busy as a kitchen. Dust off those doormats! Vacuuming the back of a mat can push trapped dirt out onto the floor where it’s easier to pick up. Organize your entry-way, and wipe everything down with antibacterial wipes and move on to the living room! Starting with something small can break through the apprehension to start at all.
Don’t forget the fridge.
The fridge needs a clean too! The best tip is to start cleaning your kitchen with the fridge first. Take everything out and lay it on the counter. Toss the expired goods, wipe down any messy containers. Then wipe down the inside of the fridge with antibacterial wipes, or warm soapy water to get rid of food bacteria and spillage. Once you’ve determined what food stays and goes, put it back in and move on to the sink!
Lemon rinds cure all.
If there are any bad odors in the house, lemons will be your friend! If the kitchen sink is smelling foul, run a lemon rind over the sink and at the drain to get rid of any bad odors. Rinse with cold water. This same trick can be used on cutting boards! Rub the cut side of a lemon over the cutting board to remove food stains and bad smells. If you sprinkle a little salt and baking soda on beforehand, it will be even easier to lift the stains and smells.
That’s all for this week! Come back next Friday for more spring food and fun in Vancouver, WA.
