The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the flowers are blooming. Spring has finally made its way to Kansas City!
Cue the cleaning supplies and rags, it’s time to freshen up and spring clean your home. Spring cleaning can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. The team at Janssen Glass put together a handy checklist to help you spruce things up.
Spring Cleaning Tips
Where to Start:
Work your way from top to the bottom. We recommend starting with the ceiling and making your way down to the floor.
Cleaners to Use:
Today there are so many different types of chemical cleaners used. However, many people are now turning to non-toxic homemade cleaners. They can clean the dust and grime and still leave your house fresh and safe. For those who prefer the chemical-free route, the Janssen Glass team put together a DIY guide for creating your own glass cleaner.
What Materials to Use:
Another tip for cleaning ceilings and walls is to use a sponge mop to help you reach higher areas. As for glass, use a squeegee or a microfiber rag. To clean the glass, use a circular motion, then go back over wiping vertically.
