5 Items In Your House That Need A Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning can be a rewarding time. Out with the old and in with the new. Open up the windows and get the stale winter air of the house, clean out the garage to make room for your summer projects, all good ways to start the new season. Spring cleaning can seem tedious to some people. I mean you are having to clean… Well we are here to make things easier with a simple list of 10 items you might forget to clean.

Here are 5 Items In Your House That Need A Spring Cleaning


Overtime dust can build up on the edges of your cabinet. Each time you open the doors the dust can fall in your drinking glasses or food bowls. Gross! To keep your cabinets clean we recommend using a specialized cleaner for each cabinet material such as this Minwax wood cabinet cleaner.

Stainless Steel

Smudges can take your stainless steel appliances looking nice to dirty pretty quickly. Not to mention most people over look cleaning the handles of the refrigerator even when preparing food. Stainless steel can be a pest to keep clean all the time so we recommend using stainless steel wipes almost daily to avoid those ugly smudges and remove bacteria.


It might make sense when you think about the fact that your dishwasher needs a cleaning when it is responsible for cleaning all your dishware. Where does all that stuff go? Well most of it gets rinsed out but some contaminants can get built up and cause problems or just leave your dishes less clean. Most dishwashers come with special self cleaning cycle. Run that once a month and you shouldn’t run into many problems with unclean dishes in the future.

Utensil Holders

Like many, I thought putting clean utensils back into the utensil holders would effectively keep the utensil holder clean. Well, I just looked at my utensil holder and it needs a serious cleaning. Depending on the material it is made out of you can either through it in the dishwasher or hand wash it. Either way you should surely check out your utensil holder this spring cleaning season.

Washing Machine

There’s nothing worse than thinking you are putting on a freshly washed shirt only to find out it is stinky. Well maybe there are worse things in the world but an unexpected stinky shirt can put a damper on your day. To get your washing machine back to churning out fresh smelling laundry try using distilled white vinegar and baking soda. Run the machine with the hot water setting, next add the vinegar and baking soda, then let it sit for 45 minutes. Lastly, restart the machine, drain the water, and wipe it dry.
