Time to Tidy (with Locally Obsessed!)
It's almost April and the sun has been shining...we are so thankful however, it really is highlighting the damage that winter meals, snowy boots and cold and flu season have done to our homes. Dusty surfaces and smudged mirrors really do stand out in this beautiful weather.
Our theme for March's edition of Locally Obsessed was Spring Cleaning. We sourced the best locally made cleaning products, laundry detergent and home decor to really help spruce up your homes!
We came up with this handy little list to help you with your SPRING CLEANING goals! Feel free to pin it, screen shot it or share with friends! If you are anything like us you know that lists are major game changers in productivity!
While we’re on the topic we thought we would share some of our favourite cleaning hacks with you!
For easy microwave cleaning….
-Fill a bowl with half a cup of water..
- Slice a lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the water. Drop the lemon halves into the bowl.
-Place the bowl in the microwave. Microwave on high power for 3 minutes so the liquid comes to a boil.
-Do not open the microwave door. The steam trapped inside will help loosen food gunk. Let stand for 5 minutes.
- Open the door and carefully remove the bowl with the lemons. If your microwave has a turntable, lift it out and wipe it clean. Wipe the inside of the microwave clean starting with the ceiling and the sides. Finish with the bottom, sweeping any crumbs into your hand. Don't forget the door!
For easy baseboard dusting…
-Place a microfiber cloth around the head of your broom.
-Secure the cloth with an elastic band
Hopefully this is the little boost of motivation you needed to turn your house into a mess free stress free haven!
