You’re probably ready for spring – but is your home? Spring cleaning wakes up your rooms and get them ready to shine in the sun. Here are three tasks to put on your to-do list this week:
1. Dust your drapes
Window treatments can collect lots of dirt and dust from the air. Put them in your dryer with a wet towel, and turn on the air-fluff cycle for 15 minutes. Hang them back in the windows immediately.
2. Clean your ceiling fan
This, too, can collect lots of dust on the blades. Using your favorite furniture polish, wipe them down and lightly buff.
3. Air out your linens
If you have a backyard clothesline, shake then out and let them hang in the sun for a few hours. Sunlight is a natural germ killer.
