ONE LAST SPRING TIME ACTIVITY...
Here are some helpful tips to jump start your spring cleaning:
Remove water stains with lemon for a natural faucet fix
- by using a lemon, the citric acid helps remove hard water stains. All you need to do is rub half of a lemon on your faucets and voila, your faucets are now clean and sparkly.
Need to clean your air vents? Use a butter knife
- wrap the knife in a rag and wipe between the slats. It’s as simple as that. After that, open your windows, run your central air, and fill your home that refreshing spring air.
Kitchen cabinet build up
- your kitchen cabinets can build up grime over time. By using Parker and Bailey Kitchen Cabinet Cream, you can cut through the dirt leaving the wood beautifully moisturized. Get it on Amazon for $6.99
