Not sure where to start with your spring cleaning? Here’s a handy checklist along with some helpful cleaning tips

Before You Start:

  • Gather all your cleaning supplies together. Here’s a suggested cleaning supply list.
  • Remember to clean top to bottom and left to right in order to maximize your cleaning efforts and to keep from cleaning the same area twice.
  • Wear gloves to protect your hands.
  • Put on some music to make cleaning more enjoyable.

Around the House- Spring Cleaning Checklist

  • Ceiling Fans: Use a microfiber duster to remove any dust that accumulates on the blades.
  • Shelves: Remove items from shelves and book cases to give shelves a good dusting and polish with a microfiber cloth. Polish the glass on any framed photos.
  • Blinds: Dust blinds dry first in order to remove dust using a microfiber duster. Be sure to turn blinds in one direction to get as much of the surface area as possible. If dirt still persists after your initial dusting, and if the blinds are plastic, you may need to take the blinds down and soak them in a bathtub to remove dirt and grime. Allow them to air dry outside before re-hanging.
  • Windows: After a long winter, your home’s windows will need a good cleaning. Window cleaner and a sponge should do the trick. Melamine eraser sheets which are thin and flexible will help you get into tight corners to really get them clean. Don’t forget to wash both the interior and exterior of the window.
  • Walls: Spot clean your walls using a damp eraser sponge.
  • Carpets & Area Rugs: shampoo carpets and area rugs. For spot cleaning, use a carpet-safe cleaning solution, a little water and an eraser sponge.

5 Things You Should Clean Regularly in Your Home

Cleaning your home with eraser sponge products

Our homes can get very dirty without us even realizing it. Over time, there are several areas that can gather bacteria and other germs rather quickly. Sinks, bathrooms, and kitchens are just scratching the surface. These areas of your home and more need to be cleaned regularly to ensure the bacteria does not spread to other surfaces in your home.

Here are 5 things you should clean regularly:

Kitchen Sink & Countertops

The kitchen is used frequently to prepare and cook food. Your stovetop, kitchen sink, countertops, oven, microwave, and other surfaces can easily gather leftover food, crumbs, and other debris. Bacteria and other germs can gather in these places. To combat these germs, Sponge Outlet’s eraser sponges will do the trick!

Bathrooms

Your bathrooms can also gather germs. Believe it or not, the bathroom sink can get just as dirty as the toilet bowl. Cleaning the bathroom is very important. You have to make sure you clean every area around and inside the toilet, bathtub, walls, sink, faucet, and much more. Our dual melamine eraser sponges and scouring pad can get to the bottom of the grime.

Doorknobs & Handles

We touch our doorknobs and door handles constantly at our homes. Coming in from a long day outside in the summer can bring in germs on our hands. These germs can stick to the handles. Bacteria can build up if we don’t clean them regularly. Besides our eraser sponges, we can provide you with microfiber towels and more to quickly clean off these areas!

Cabinets

Cabinets around your home can gather crumbs, dirt, grime, and dust at any point in the year. Cleaning your cabinets regularly with a microfiber towel will allow you to quickly dust off the debris for a cleaner home. For the hard-to-reach places, simply use our dusting wand!

Laundry Room

This is an important one to clean. The laundry room is consistently being filled with dirty laundry. Germs and bacteria can build up on the countertops and floors. Make sure when you’re washing your clothes in the washer to clean the areas around them.

At Sponge Outlet, we can provide you with high quality cleaning products clean every area of your home inside and out. We encourage you to contact us at 877-776-6430 today or visit us online for more information!

 

Decluttering Can Help Keep Your Home Clean

Cleaning and decluttering home

Decluttering and getting rid of material items that can be accumulated without recognition is a good thing for your home and your mental health. It has the ability to keep your home clean because you have more space available to recognize what needs to be cleaned on the regular. With items you don’t need sitting around your house, dust can gather in those spots from the items sitting around.

At Sponge Outlet, we recommend decluttering during your spring-cleaning chores this spring season. We can provide you with some of our cleaning supplies to help make the process more efficient and less stressful.

The Benefits of Decluttering Your Home

When it comes to decluttering your home, it can be very stressful, but you’ll be thankful down the road for doing so because it makes cleaning your home much easier. You have more room to clean, and you can spot the dirty spots around your home.

  • Relieve Stress & Anxiety – Decluttering your home can improve your mental health. When you start staring at the amount of material items lying around your home that you don’t use, it can cause stress and anxiety because you know that it’s time for them to go, but it can be difficult to get started.
  • Boost Your Productivity – Having a cluttered home or workspace can hinder your productivity if you work from home or spend most of the day in the house. Decluttering allows you to rid the stress of the material items and focus on creativity and your productivity.
  • Keeps Your Home Cleaner – Decluttering allows you to keep your home as clean as possible. The dust, dirt, and other grime that can accumulate or get dragged into your home is more noticeable at this point. You’ll be able to keep things organized and make sure your home is spotless.

What Helps to Declutter and Clean Easier?

Organize your things better with simple decluttering. Go through all of your things that you don’t use and determine what you’d like to keep based on if you use those items anymore. Don’t be afraid to let go of certain items that aren’t necessary.

When you’re decluttering, you’ll notice you can clean much easier. For spring cleaning, Sponge Outlet can provide you with non-toxic cleaning products that will last longer and clean your home better. We carry melamine eraser sponges, monster scrubbies, dust wands, microfiber towels, and much more! Our products are durable and safe to use around your home.
