Well… it’s official, Spring is here!
Think of it like this… One year ago today, you were purell-ing your body, washing your groceries with a magnifying glass, and willing to punch an elderly person for that last 12 pack of toilet paper. Let’s be honest, this was not our finest moment.
That being said, Spring is the perfect time to clean up that past with a little Spring Cleaning! Here are our 5 Spring Cleaning Tips for you!
Clean Up your Cleaning Supplies
If your family is anything like mine, then the area under your sink is overflowing with various cleaning or disinfectant sprays for different surfaces, weather conditions, and future pandemics.
Use this time to go over which products you actually need and throw out the ones you don’t, by asking yourself some simple questions: 1) Is there any liquid left in this spray bottle? 2) What year (or in some cases) decade is this from? 3) Do I own 6 of the same spray? This is the best place to start!
You NEED to clean your Microwave
This past year, the microwave has become a life-saver! What was once last week’s lunch (due to time constraints, and let’s be honest, laziness) is now tonight’s Chef Special for Dinner – thanks to our good friend the microwave!
Now that it has been a year of working together, the microwave is in desperate need of a good clean. Lucky for you, there is an easy way to do it: In a bowl, combine one cup of water, one cup of vinegar, and two tablespoons of lemon juice. Place the bowl in the center of an empty microwave and set on high for two minutes. Once complete, wipe down with a damp cloth.
It’s time to clean your Coffee Maker
Other than Wine and the occasional cocktail, Coffee has been an absolute necessity this past year. If we could get two Moderna shots of espresso injected directly into our arm… we would. That being said, seeing as your Coffee pitcher now has a seemingly permanent brown residue circle- its probably time for a good clean.
Here is a little trick to help you out, Fill the back of the auto-drip tank with warm water, then drop two denture tablets into the liquid and let them fully dissolve. Run the coffee machine through its regular cycle and you should be good to go!
Clean your Phone… its gross
Did you know that studies show your phone is dirtier than both your toilet seat and the bottom of your shoe—disgusting (but true)! As a rule of thumb… if you can see the details of your thumb print on your phone screen, from the years of typing in your lock screen code… it’s time for a clean.
Take your phone case off, wipe that down, turn off your phone and wipe the screen down with a disinfectant wipe.
While on the subject of your phone, take a moment to go through your camera roll and delete pictures that you have been putting off deleting for years now.
You know the photos we are talking about… The blurry or unflattering pictures of you and your friends that weren’t “insta-worthy”, pictures of your ex-boyfriend’s hamster “Gerald”, or maybe the 73 completely dark pictures your of the inside of your purse or bag.
It's time… delete them.
And Of Course… Drop a POTTYMINT!
While POTTYMINTS don’t clean the toilet bowl, we do make the bathroom smell like a dream!
Whether you are using POTTYMINTS to deal with a “less than ideal smell situation”, or you just want to freshen up your bathroom – drop a POTTYMINT into the clean water and enjoy!
Talk about getting some fresh spring air!
No matter how you decide to freshen up your home! We hope that you enjoy the first day of Spring, and hopefully we can all enjoy some better days ahead!
