2 Week Spring Cleaning Challenge

Spring Cleaning - Floors

Day 5, Floors

A vacuum cleaner scours more than carpet. Removing grit from bare floors as well as dust from curtains and crumbs from upholstery, a quick sweep of the vacuum immediately makes your home appear cleaner. Use the hose and the nozzle attachment to make short work of all these tasks. If you have time, an equally quick swipe with a damp mop will remove any additional residue on floors.


Although daily vacuuming may be the ideal, twice per week will keep your home neat enough. For added freshness, sprinkle carpets and upholstery with baking soda, let it set for about 15 minutes and then vacuum.
