The season for scrubbing

Spring is in the air. Grass is greener, birds are singing, and it’s time for spring cleaning.

Since no one wants to be inside scrubbing when the weather warms up, here are a few tips to speed up the spring cleaning process.

To clean water spots off the shower door, wipe it down with a small amount of lemon oil regularly.

Don’t use disinfectants on kitchen countertops used for food preparation. Residue can leach into food and be ingested.

To clean in crevices around faucets, apply a small amount of cleaner to an old toothbrush.

To thoroughly clean a self-cleaning oven, first wipe away spills with a soft cloth. Next, use a mild abrasive cleaner for the door, but do not scrub the door gasket. Instead, use a wet, slightly soapy sponge.

To clean computer or television screens first turn the power off. Then sparingly wet a cleaning cloth or paper towel with glass cleaner and wipe the screen. Never use a spray bottle directly, as the mist could settle inside through the ventilation slots.
