Spring is almost here! It’s time to put on your cleaning gloves because we’ve got six brilliant spring cleaning hacks that will transform your home. If you want to get rid of all your clutter and find easy ways to deep clean your home then you’ll want to read today’s article.  

1. One Man’s Garbage is Another Man’s Treasure

The first spring cleaning hack is to get rid of all the items around your house that you don’t want anymore. But don’t throw them in the garbage because there are plenty of places you can donate your unwanted goods. Or you can make a pretty penny by hosting a garage sale.

Start cleaning out your closets to toss out unwanted clothing. Then move on to the living room and lounge areas because there may be old ornaments that are making your interior look outdated. Next, you should clear out your kitchen cupboards and get rid of old Tupperware, pots, pans and dinner sets that are taking up valuable space.

Once you’ve cleaned out all your cupboards you can place items in categorised boxes so that it’s easier for other people to look through at your garage sale.

2. Disinfect Your Cleaning Tools

Before you wipe tables, sinks, taps, walls and other surfaces you’ll need to disinfect your cleaning tools. Fill a large bucket with hot water and pour two caps of Zoflora into the mix. Throw all your sponges and cleaning cloths into the solution and leave them to soak for at least 15 minutes.

Once your cleaning tools are disinfected you can wipe and clean out all the cupboards you’ve de-cluttered. It’s important to use disinfected cleaning tools to prevent spreading germs and bacteria around your house.

3. Wash Your Windows with Zoflora on a Cloudy Day

These spring cleaning hacks wouldn’t be the same without easy tips to clean windows. Sometimes when it’s sunny outside it can be difficult to see the dirt on your windows. Additionally, hotter temperatures can cause the detergent to dry too quickly on your windows which leaves behind unsightly streaks that are difficult to get rid of.

Wait for a cloudy day to clean your windows so that you can see the dirt easily and so the water and detergent don’t dry too quickly.

To wash your windows, fill a bucket with warm water and add two caps of Zoflora concentrate. Then dip your squeegee into the solution and use the wet sponge to wipe away the grime on your windows. The advantage of Zoflora is that it doesn’t create foam so it’s easier to clean your windows with Zoflora solution.

4. Toss Out Expired Goods

Sometimes you can forget you have items in your cupboards that are way past their expiration dates. Ladies should throw away old makeup because expired makeup can cause itchy and irritated skin. You should also throw away expired toiletries and medication.

Next, go to your kitchen cupboards and throw away expired packaged food even if it still looks fresh. You don’t want to eat expired noodles or canned food because it may cause you to become ill or give you an upset stomach.

Once you’ve thrown away all your expired goods, you’ll notice you have more space in your cupboards and you’ll find other items you may need easier.

5. Your Dishwasher Can Clean More than Just Your Dishes

Did you know that your dishwasher can clean other items around the house? You can clean the following items in your dishwasher:

  • Hair brushes
  • Makeup brushes
  • Hard plastic toys
  • Pets bowls
  • Soap containers
  • Tweezers
  • Refrigerator shelves

Before you use this spring cleaning hack, remove all your dishes from your dishwasher. Place a safe detergent inside the dishwasher that won’t damage your items. Regular dishwasher tablets will do.

6. Deep Clean Your Dishwasher

After washing all your random items in your dishwasher, you may feel apprehensive about washing your dishes in the unit. That’s why you should clean and disinfect your dishwasher regularly. You can spray diluted Zoflora inside your dishwasher to disinfect it.

Then switch the dishwasher on without items or dishes inside and let it run a hot water cycle to clean away grime and dirt trapped in all the nooks and crannies.
