Polishing granite countertops is an important part of spring cleaning. This is the perfect time to apply polish. Spray a manufacturer-recommended polish over the surface, allow it to sit for five minutes, and then use a cotton cloth to buff the countertop to a shine.
2. Wax or Seal Wood Floors
Spring cleaning is the time to go the extra mile for wood floors by applying a wax or sealer. A wash-and-wax combination cleaner is the easiest route to success.
3. Clean Carpets
Your family tracks debris onto your carpets that have to be shampooed away during spring cleaning. Instead of moving everything out of the room, move furniture slightly as you progress through the room, replacing each piece before moving on. Place a small square of wax paper under the foot of each piece of furniture to protect it from absorbing moisture.
4. Make Tile Floors Sparkle
Vacuum tile floors, then use a nylon pan scraper to remove sticky spots. Mop the entire area with a tile-safe cleaner. If your grout is dingy, fill a bottle with a half-and-half vinegar and water solution. Spray the solution on the grout, let it sit for five minutes and then scrub the grout with a stiff brush.
5. Spring Cleaning Cabinets
Most people only clean the exterior of their cabinets in spring cleaning season. All you need are rags and a bucket filled with warm water and dish soap. To make this chore more efficient, choose one end of the kitchen as your starting point, working your way to the other end cleaning only the upper cabinets. Make your way back to the starting point while cleaning the lower cabinets.
