Dust and Clean Walls

Walls are prone to a buildup of dust, random scuffs, and handprints, and over time, you may not even notice they’re there. The good news is that you don’t need a fancy cleaner to get your walls looking fresh—just make a DIY solution of warm water and liquid dish soap. Use this handy Long Handle Wall Cleaner tool to reach up high and down low without breaking your back.

Quick tip: Stains on your walls? Try a little bit of hydrogen peroxide to wipe them away.

Clean Windows and Windowsills

Most busy households would agree that windows and windowsills are the last on the spring cleaning list. Give your windows the care they deserve by making your own cleaning solution with approximately eight ounces of warm water and a drop or two of liquid dish soap. Apply the mixture with a sponge and use this All-Purpose Squeegee to wipe it off. Use a rag to clean up any excess water and wipe away any remaining cleaning mixture around the perimeter of the window.

Quick tip: Use the nozzle attachment on your vacuum to clean dust and dirt from the window track.

Do an Exterior Sweep

Porches, patios, and balconies collect leaves, spiderwebs, and plenty of dust over the fall and winter seasons. Remove everything from your outdoor space or entry area and give it a good sweep. Use an angled broom or Cobweb Duster tool to reach corners and nooks where dead insects and dirt accumulate. If you have a finished floor on your front porch, use a heavy-duty Floor Scrubber Brush and an all-purpose cleanser, then wash it clean with an outdoor hose.

Quick tip: For especially dusty and dirty corners, break out the shop vac to vacuum up debris in a hurry.  

Clean Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets get a lot of wear and tear, especially lower cabinets that bear the brunt of counter spills and stovetop drippings. Natural ingredients you already have at home are the ticket to get your cabinets sparkly clean. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and warm water, spray on your cabinets, and let sit for a few minutes. Wipe them down with a clean Microfiber Cleaning Cloth. If your kitchen has especially greasy areas, particularly near the stove or oven, use a paste of baking soda and water to get rid of the buildup.

Quick tip: Use a rubber eraser to help remove scuff marks on cabinets.
