Transitioning Into Fall? Easy Summer Cleaning Tips

Spring Cleaning Odd Jobs: Don’t Forget These Important ChoresJust because you’re probably more familiar with the terms “spring-cleaning,” it doesn’t mean that summer or any other season don’t count. In fact, you should probably clean even more than you usually do during the summer, especially if your kids aren’t away for summer camp.

Whether you’re spending more time at home during your vacation, or you’re away from home for most of the time, you should consider giving your abode a deep clean. The following are a few helpful tips for getting to the scrubbing properly.

Implement Hand Wash Laws

While many may think that the chances of getting sick during summertime are much lower because of warmer weather, that’s a total myth. It’s definitely more inconvenient to get sick during the summer since you most likely want to be out having fun under the sun. Having everyone regularly wash their hands will help avoid getting exposed to bacteria and viruses, and stay away from getting sick.

Use Doormats

Whether you have tiles, wooden floors, or carpet, mats are door-front essentials. If your kids are playing outside or your spouse is doing some garden work, the likelihood of dirt entering your home has automatically increased. An easy-to-clean doormat is ideal for keeping away dirt, dust, pollen and other outdoor impurities.

Clean Your Laundry Machine

Washing machines tend to develop a stinky odor during the summer, namely in humid areas. The best way to get rid of the unpleasant smell is by running an empty load with just some detergent and hot water. Let the washing machine dry properly by leaving the door open, which will allow for air circulation.

Remove Unwanted Water Marks

You can’t avoid the chances of guests forgetting to use your coasters while attending your summer parties. Rather than cringing at the sight of water stains left on your wood table or furniture, you can just apply a spoon-full (or the necessary amount) of mayonnaise. Let it sit on the tarnished area for about an hour and then use a dry cloth to wipe it off.

Keep Your BBQ Spotless

It’s no secret how often the good old family grill gets used during the summer. That makes it prone to acquiring leftover food and grime. Just grab a wire brush and scrub off any residue while the grill is still hot. If that doesn’t work on its own, you can apply oven cleaner to attack the more stubborn spots. Don’t forget to use rubber gloves to protect your hands.

Ask for Reinforcement

Getting back into fall routines is not always an easy task. You have tons of organizing to do and if you have children, you’ve just been busy with the back-to-school process, which sometimes takes more than a month to complete.
