Summer Cleaning Checklist Tip 1: Get Your Outdoor Spaces, Ready for the Summer
It’s important to give the exterior of your home and outdoor entertainment spaces a good once-over when the summer starts. Here are the areas you should pay attention to:
Household Vinyl Siding: Use an eraser sponge to remove mold, mildew, dirt, and grime. If you have a large area to clean, our Super S Eraser Sponges (12 Pack) will help shorten your cleaning time due to the their large size.
Windows: Use an eraser sponge to remove any dirt or grime from windows. The eraser sponge extension handle kit can help you reach the upper areas of the window with ease as it extends up to three feet. No ladders or step stools required!
Whether you’re using your boat on the lake, or in the ocean, you will want to make sure you keep it clean, especially before winter storage. Salt or other forms of grime and scum can build up and damage your investment.
Spray Down Your Entire Boat with Water
Spray your boat down with water starting from the top and working your way down. If there is salt, give it a few minutes to let everything dissolve after spraying with water. Then, hose it down again. It is best to have your boat lifted in order to get to the undersides as well and spray down the engines. A pressure washer works wonders.
As for cleaning products, there are plenty of commercial boat cleaners on the market. Just make sure to check that they are suitable for your boat’s material. Apply using an absorbent sponge or soft scrub brush.
Clean the Livewell or Baitwell
The livewell or baitwell is sure to have gathered some nasty stains and smells throughout the season. For the interior, a non-toxic cleaner is best as it will not be detrimental to any fish or bait placed inside the livewell. Baking soda and water will help neutralizer any odors and is a great non-toxic cleaner. Use an eraser sponge with a scrubber pad from SpongeOutlet.com to scour any stains or water scum from the interior. Be sure to rinse well.
Clean Vinyl Seats and Consoles
Eraser sponges can also be used for detailed cleaning without harsh chemicals on vinyl seats and plastic consoles. Use them to remove scuff dirt and grime and scuff marks. For cleaning larger areas, consider using SpongeOutlet’s Giant Sized Boat Eraser Sponges.
Be sure to protect vinyl seats from the UV rays of the sun, by using a protective seat cleaner. Protective cleaners will help prevent any cracking or discoloration caused by sunlight. Wipe off cleanser with a microfiber towel.

Keeping your dishwasher clean will not only will help it look and smell better, but it will help it to perform better and possibly extend the life of the appliance. Use eraser sponges to clean the plastic items inside your dishwasher without any added detergent or dish soap.
Cleaning the Inside of the Dishwasher’s Tub with Eraser Sponges
Use a paper towels to remove any large food debris from the bottom of the tub. Next, you will want to loosen any grime or leftover food. While your dishwasher is empty, place a cup of vinegar on the top rack,. Sprinkle baking soda on the bottom of your dishwasher and then choose the cleaning cycle or a hot-water cleaning cycle. The vinegar and baking soda will help clean the dishwasher and remove any bad odors.
Some blogs suggest cleaning the inside of your dishwasher with bleach. However, if your dishwasher is stainless steel on the inside, this could corrode and ruin the finish of the dishwasher. Instead use an approved commercial dishwasher cleaner or the baking soda and vinegar method.
Next, check to see if your dishwasher has a removable filer that needs to be cleaned. The filter traps larger food particles to prevent the dishwasher’s water pump from becoming clogged. This can also be a source of bad smells if it has not been cleaned in a while. Remove the filter and wash it using warm soapy water. Use a soft sponge to wipe off any stuck-on food particles, or small stickers. An eraser sponge, like our large erasers sponges, can be used to remove grime on any plastic parts of the filter. Return the filter back to its housing before running your next dishwasher load.
Removing Stains and Smells From Inside the Dishwasher Tub
After the cycle is complete and your dishwasher is cool, use an eraser sponge to remove any grime from plastic racks, utensil baskets and wash arms.
The detergent dispenser can become encrusted with old soap which can prevent it from opening during the wash cycle. Remove any excess detergent from around and inside the plastic dispenser using an eraser sponge. Test the lid of the dispenser to make sure it shuts properly.
Check the lower dishwasher spray arms to make sure the holes are free and clear of any blockages, like food particles. During your dishwasher’s wash cycle, water and detergent spray through these holes to clean your dishes, so clogged spray arms might be preventing your dishwasher from properly cleaning your dishes.
Clean the Gasket Seal Around the Dishwasher Tub. The plastic or rubber-like seal around a dishwasher tub opening helps to secure the door and prevent any water leakage. Over time, the seal can become encrusted with dirt and grim made up from food particles, soap and dirt, leading to unpleasant smells. Use an eraser sponge, or just a wet sponge with dishwashing soap to remove any dirt, grime or food particles from the seal. Be sure to dry it using a microfiber cloth or towel.

Prepare any cribs, changing tables, or rockers by giving them a thorough cleaning. Be careful using cleaners with heavy scents as these can irritate the eyes, skin, nose and throat of a young infant. Use a gentle soap and hot water to disinfect any surfaces.

Give the Room a Through Dusting – Including the Vents
Keep allergens low and away from your new baby by giving the room and contents a thorough dusting. A damp microfiber cloth or dusting wand will help remove dust. Don’t forget to also dust any vents. Dirty vents can distribute dust and allergens from other areas inside the home. Make sure they are clean and clean any in-room vents as well.
Keep a Cleaning Routine & Cleaning Tools on Hand
After baby comes home, it is important to keep cleaning every day. Keep eraser sponges around to safely clean up any dirt of marks on the crib or changing table. An eraser sponge with soap also has the added advantage of providing gentle disinfecting when used with hot water.
Babies are known for their ability to make a mess out of nothing, so it is important to make those messes easy to clean up. Using disinfecting wipes often combined with frequent use of eraser sponges can keep your baby’s room shining and clean, until they become a toddler. Then, you will need a larger box of sponge erasers for all the artwork they leave you!
Whatever cleaning tools or detergents you decide to use, be sure to keep them out of the reach of tiny hands. Lock them securely inside a cabinet with a baby proof lock, or store them high up in a cupboard and out of the reach of children.
As always, if you’re not entirely sure of using an eraser sponge on any surface, test a non-conspicuous area first. If you still have questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
Cleaning the bathroom can be quite the chore and one that might have to be done weekly, depending on how many people live in your home. With all the nooks and crannies, tile grout, and scuff marks, it can be a real pain to clean every area. Fortunately, many of the areas can be cleaned without chemicals using an eraser sponge.
Before you start cleaning
Wear latex or vinyl gloves. Wearing rubber gloves will protect your hands and keep the skin from becoming too dry, even if you are just cleaning with water and an eraser sponge. Plus, you will be less squeamish when it comes to tackling dirty and unpleasant areas.
De-clutter Counters and Tubs. Clear the bathroom of laundry, wet towels, toys, shampoo bottles and other items to expose all surfaces that require cleaning.
Begin with the tub and shower area. If you have a separate shower stall, grab your eraser sponge and wet it with water. Gently scrub tile walls to remove any soap scum, soap residue or water stains. Clean the shower floor last so that you are not walking over it as you clean the rest of the shower area. Run the shower at the very end to rinse away any remaining dirt or debris.
If you have a tub with a shower, clean the wall tiles first with the eraser sponge, then the tub basin and finish using the shower sprayer to rinse the area thoroughly.
Sink and counters. Work top to bottom, left to right, to remove any soap scum, dirt, water stains and leftover tooth paste from the sink and counters. Run the faucet to rinse clean.
Toilet. You may want to use a new eraser sponge on the toilet to prevent any cross contamination issues. Use a sponge on the porcelain part of the toilet, tank, handle, seat and lid. Don’t forget to get behind the seat as well. Dispose of the sponge after use.
Some blogs and social media posts wrongly suggest dropping an eraser sponge into the toilet and letting it sit. Since most eraser sponges do not contain additional cleaning agents, this will not accomplish anything other than having to fish out a wet sponge from the toilet bowl. The cleaning power is the gentle scrubbing used to remove, dust, grime, soap scum, hard water stains, mold and scuff marks.
Clean the floors last
Use one of our eraser sponge mop heads to clean dirty grout tile lines on floor tiles. The replacement mop head attach to the head of a mop handle (sold separately) via Velcro. Wet the sponge first or use a spray bottle to wet the floor area before using the sponge to scrub back and forth. Rinse your sponge in a bucket and squeeze out dirty water to get a clean, reusable mop head sponge. Let it air dry and reuse again and again.
