Just keep Cleaning!

Now that we are into a little bit more of a "Spring" we can continue with our spring cleaning (or if you are like me, just start to spring clean....just start to think about it :) We are happy to have Jessica from Clear the Clutter back with us to help with our windows and doors!
Windows and Doors:
Are you ready to throw open those windows and enjoy the fresh Spring air? I am! Only problem is that the air might not be so fresh coming through filthy window tracks and door ways. If you think I am being overly OCD about this area, it may have been a while since you opened your windows and took a peek. YUCK!
First thing is to get out the best vacuum you have and get the smallest attachment. Take some time and really get out as much of the loose dirt that you can, it will make things MUCH easier when we start adding moisture to the process.
While the vacuum is still out, use it on top of all doorways and door frames. Obviously if there is stuck on dirt, a clean rag or Magic Eraser will be necessary.
Now, getting the gunk and grime out of and off the window tracks and doorways does require some time, but it can be very rewarding.
If you have a Shark Pocket Steamer, this is my favorite place to use it! Shoot that steam right into the window tracks and entry ways and you will blast yourself to shinny happiness.
If you don’t have a steamer, you can still get it just as clean, just use a little more elbow grease. Get out your cleaning toothbrush, rags, and HOT water with cleaning solution and go to town.
My last touch on window and doorways may be a bit over the top for you, but it can really be the icing on the cake. I touch up the paint on the trim, and re-caulk any areas necessary.
With a little effort, soon you’re going to open up those windows and doors, feel the fresh Spring air, and enjoy the clean window and door tracks at the same time.
Let me know if you have any questions
