In this five-part series, we’ll take you through the steps to deep clean every room in your home!
Wash the bedding, including bed skirts and duvet covers. Don’t forget the pillows!
Flip your mattress. Or if you have a pillow top, rotate it to prevent grooves from forming due to sleeping in the same spot for too long. Freshen the mattress by spreading on some baking soda, letting it sit for 45 minutes to an hour, and vacuuming it back up.
*Tip: Use foam shaving cream to remove mattress stains by letting it sit for 15 minutes before wiping it off with a slightly damp cloth dipped in a half-water/half-vinegar solution.
Dust neglected surfaces, like window treatments, headboards and ceiling fans. If you have drapes, vacuum or launder them, too.
Vacuum or mop under furniture, including behind dressers and under beds. Pay extra attention to corners and baseboards.
*Tip: If your furniture is too heavy to move, use the vacuum cleaner attachments to swivel a mop head or rag to get to hard-to-reach places
