Spring Cleaning

Now the sunny weather is upon us and the clocks have changed, it can only mean one thingÖ A Spring clean!

A study in 2021 revealed that 69 per cent of respondents take part in Spring cleaning every year, giving their house a good old scrub.

Weíve put together some of our favourite tips and tricks for you to use when you get the rubber gloves out!

Cleaning windows
Instead of just wiping down the inside of the windows and frames, make sure you tackle the outside too. Using glass cleaner will remove the spots and smudges you don't usually have time to do. Want an extra tip? Wash them on a cloudy day to ensure that the sun won't dry the spray before you're done wiping.

Deep clean the bathroom
Every Spring-cleaning routine should focus on the bathroom. Letís be honest, they never get as much TLC as they should.

Cleaning the shower, toilet and sink area can make a huge difference to your bathroom and make it look brand new. Rust remover helps you get rid of any stains and can make the world of difference, plus, it can also be used for removing rust in pipes and septic systems as well.

Carpet cleaning
Areas of the floor that are walked on most should be cleaned with a professional cleaning tool every three to four months. A hoover is great for daily use but we recommend a deep cleaning tool to help you get in between the carpet fibers.

Fridge fever
How often do you thoroughly clean the inside and outside your fridge?

For a good clean, pull out all of the fridge's interior shelves and wash them with warm soapy water, wipe down the surfaces that can't be removed on the inside with a sponge, before putting shelves back in their place.

This will help to remove any bacteria thatís been lingering for a while from leaking foods and make your fridge look brand new.

Bulky furnishings
You might regularly wash your duvet covers and sheets, but when was the last time you cleaned your curtains or sofa?

Strip all the beds and wash every pillow and duvet. Most will be machine washable, or you can even wash cushions in the bath, and leave them outside to dry.

If you need to clean a larger furniture piece such as a sofa and footstool, ensure you hoover over thoroughly before using the upholstery attachment. Start at the top, and work your way down, using short, left-to-right strokes. Working in the same direction is important, especially for fabrics such as suede. Switch to the hoover attachment to better clean seams and folds, as well as around buttons or zips.

It might sound easy to wash your sofa with water, but if you use it to clean a sofa that specifically says to use a solvent-based cleaner and nothing else, youíre going to wish you hadnít.

The water can actually leave a stain on your sofa. Donít risk ruining your furniture, stick to the instructions. They know whatís best for it.
