Part One: Fall Cleaning Tips and Tricks
What a beautiful time of the year! However, along with all of the wonderful things about fall also comes the chores that happen around the house this time of the year. We at XYZ Storage want to help you make this time of the year as enjoyable yet productive as possible so you spend more time with friends and family. We have come up with the ultimate guide for your fall cleaning, storage, and organization of the inside of your home.
Blankets and Bedding
How often do you find yourself throwing your blankets and bedding in the washer? Blankets should be washed as often as every few weeks depending on the usage. However, your bedding should be washed every week or possibly every other week. This is to ensure that you have fresh and clean smelling sheets throughout the fall season and really every other season.
Deep Cleaning the Bathrooms and Kitchen
Grab your bathroom cleaning supplies and get scrubbing in all of your bathrooms. This is something that should be a part of your weekly cleaning routine, however, if you haven’t deep cleaned your bathroom now is the time to do it. The same goes for your kitchen appliances and cleaning out your refrigerator and pantry. For example, take this time to throw away any expired foods and scrub down your refrigerator and cabinets.
Vacuum and Dusting
You want to make sure that you are covering all areas of your home including dusting window sills that have not been cleaned in years. Vacuuming under rugs that you have not lifted up in months as well as under all of your couches.
Don’t Forget About Your Door Handles and Light Switches
Make sure to disinfect and clean most commonly touched items and surfaces including handles and light switches.
Making the Transition From Summer to Fall Clothes
