Step Into Spring Cleaning Part IV

April 28, 2011 at 8:24 pm 1 comment

Don’t be afraid to tackle basements, garages and storage rooms!

They can be dingy and dirty (not ours, of course) so wear appropriate clothing.

A Shop Vac is your BFF (ahem).  

Clean the light fixtures first – good lighting will show all the areas that need work!

 

Just be careful!

Cleaning storage spaces is an excellent opportunity to go through the contents of boxes and containers – fun!  Be sure to have plenty of garbage and recycling bags on hand.  And discard ethically.

Spring weather and damp, dark spaces = centipede and millipede infestation.

Keep things clean, dry and elevated to avoid being creeped-out.  Use essential oils to repel bugs (and to make your home smell dreamy).
