Give Your Blinds A Bath
Have you ever tried cleaning your blinds but didn’t get very far? There’s the wipe-down method or maybe you have one of those little dusters made for blinds?
But no matter what they still seem dirty?! This is where people usually give up!
The key is you have to take them off the wall and give them a bath! Yes, that’s right you can actually detach them at the top and put them in the bathtub.
This way you will be able to get the wet fully and use dish soap to properly scrub them off. Then let them dry and when you put them back up they will look brand new!
Clean Your Bed
You may be thinking well I already do that all the time but I don’t mean cleaning your sheets I mean cleaning your mattress!
This task often gets overlooked but mattresses can get pretty dirty from sweat, dust, and more! Luckily the process is actually easier than you may think.
Simply strip all the sheets off and let it air out for a while with the windows open. Then sprinkle baking soda all over your mattress and let that sit for an hour or so. This will help to eat up any odors.
Then use a vacuum with a clean brush attachment to vacuum up all of the baking soda and your mattress. Your mattress will be fresh and ready for clean sheets!
Vacuum Your Ceiling
Ceilings are often forgotten but it’s important to clean them so the collected dust doesn’t fall and dirty up all of your hard work on cleaning other things!
Use a long vacuum attachment to vacuum along all the walls and in any nooks or crannies that have collected dust. If you have particularly high ceilings you may have to get a ladder for this job!

Shower Scrubbing Made Easy
Showers can be one of the worst areas in your bathroom to clean during spring cleaning but this one of the spring cleaning hacks will make it the easiest!

Once a week or so when you’re taking a shower scrub the entire inside of the shower with your brush. Then rinse everything out!
This will make cleaning your shower so much faster and easier!
Clean Your Houseplants
Don’t forget about your houseplants! They collect dust very easily and will grow much better when they are cleaned up.
Take a rag and wet it slightly. Then wipe down every little leaf!
