Ahhhh Spring! The season of
flowers cleaning is now upon us and it’s time to reorganize those closets and clean those floors! I always start with the closets, move to the medicine cabinets, and then lay into the floors and walls. Yes, the walls need cleaning too!
With Spring time now upon us, Dirt Devil is sharing a few Spring cleaning tips to help get you started and offering one very lucky “Deal”ectable Mommies reader the chance to #WIN a Dirty Devil Total Vision Vacuum!
Spring Cleaning Tips:
Out With The Old, In With The New – Spring is a great time to toss out old toiletries. Toothbrushes need replacing every three months and bath sponges and loofahs should be replaced every 30 days. Check your cabinets for expired medicines and restock as needed.
Bring The Spring Indoors – To help cut cleanup time as spring arrives, use placemats that can be wiped down instead of a cloth table covering that requires laundering. Also, if your kitchen table is clean, it will be less likely to be a landing pad for mail and other clutter. As a finishing touch, place a bowl of seasonal fruit or a vase of fresh flowers on the table.
Clean Top to Bottom – When cleaning, start from the highest point in a room and move down, so any dust stirred up can be vacuumed at the end. Vertical surfaces like walls can collect dust, too, especially if they’re textured.
De-Funk Your Fabrics – Use spring time as a reminder to wash mattress pads, pillow coverings and pillows from your bed and remember to flip and rotate your mattress. Take this time to vacuum the box spring with a new Total Vision™ by Dirt Devil® that has onboard tools and a hose for a quick convenient fix to household tasks.
Revamp Your Vac – Spring cleaning is the perfect time to check belts and filters on your vacuum. This is the best way to insure efficient performance and machine life. It’s a good idea to always have a spare belt and filter on hand. Spring is also a good time to stock up on bags (if you have a bagged model)!
Take it Outside – Indoor surfaces aren’t the only ones that need to be refreshed. Before setting up your patio or deck for warmer weather, get it clean with the new PressureFlex™ 2-in-1 from Dirt Devil. It offers dual functionality so while one person is washing the car, mats, and wheel base the other can be sucking up all the wet mess from the mats with the on-board wet/dry vac.
Wardrobe Update – Clean all winter outfits and place in air tight plastic containers to avoid mothballs. Do not hang sweaters or clothes on hangers for an extended period of time or they could lose shape. Store clothes in a clean, cool, dark and dry space.
Family Fun – Have everyone in your family clean out their closet and rooms, then host a family garage sale. Allow your kids to keep the money from their stuff to encourage them to get rid of clothes and toys they don’t use anymore.
Speedy Spring Cleaning – To avoid spending too much time cleaning on the weekends, make sure you are picking up messes on the fly. Check out the new Dirt Devil Power Air™ Cyclonic Stick Vac that is a sleek, lightweight, yet powerful cleaner perfect for quick pickups on hard floors.
