10 Tips to Begin Your Spring Cleaning with a Touch of Elegance

Clean Out Your Pantry

No matter how organized your pantry seems, chances are there are items lurking in the back that are either expired or nearing their expiration dates. 

Flip Your Mattress

Experts recommend flipping your mattress every few months to prevent sagging and extend its lifespan. While you're at it, vacuum your mattress to remove dust.

Shampoo Your Rugs

Rugs may look clean on the surface, but they harbor dirt, dust, and allergens deep within their fibers. Rent a carpet cleaning machine or hire professionals.

Replace Batteries in Your Detectors

Safety should always be a priority. Regularly replace batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they're functioning properly. 

Wash or Replace Shower Curtains and Liners

Shower curtains and liners can quickly become breeding grounds for mold and mildew. Remove and wash them according to manufacturer instructions.

Toss Expired Toiletries

Beauty products and toiletries have expiration dates too. Take a moment to go through your bathroom cabinets and discard any products that are past their prime.

Replenish Your First Aid Kit

A well-stocked first aid kit is essential for handling minor injuries and emergencies at home. Check your kit for missing or expired items and replenish.

Wash Your Baseboards & Windowsills

Baseboards and windowsills often collect dust and grime unnoticed. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and then wipe them down with a damp.

Deep Clean Your Oven

If you regularly cook at home, your oven can accumulate grease and grime over time. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to deep clean your oven thoroughly.

Clean Throw Pillows & Blankets

Pillows and throw blankets in common areas of your home accumulate dirt and oils from daily use. Wash or dry clean them according to care instructions to refresh.
