Whether you’re in a brand new home or you just want to make your current space feel refreshed, there’s no better way to brighten things up than doing a deep spring cleaning. If you’ve got a new space, there’s always ways to keep your home looking just as new as the day you’ve moved in.
Putting together at-home cleaners is easier than you might think! All you need is some white vinegar, water, and liquid dish soap. Mixing these three ingredients in a spray bottle is a great way to remove any mildew or soap scum from your shower.
For windows and other glass surfaces around the house, swap the dish soap out for rubbing alcohol and throw in a bit of corn starch to your magic mixture to get an effortless, streak-free clean.
Whether you’re cleaning, removing stains, or deodorizing, your spring cleaning doesn’t have to be an expensive escapade. These D-I-Y cleaners are easy to put together, easy to afford, and eco-friendly!
Keep the Kitchen Clean
One of the highest-trafficked areas in your home is undoubtedly the kitchen. Cooking breakfast and dinner, meal-prepping lunch, and searching for snacks are just a few reasons you and your family hang out in the heart of your home. All of this use means countertops can start to look weathered pretty quickly if they aren’t taken care of.
In Lennar homes, granite or quartz countertops protect against most of the wear and tear that comes about from moving pots and pans around while you’re cooking or cleaning. Plus, these hard stone countertops mean you’ll have an easy time keeping your kitchen clean and sanitized. Dish soap and hot water keeps these countertops sanitized for general use, but if you’d like a stronger disinfectant, spray a mixture of equal parts water and rubbing alcohol, let sit for three to five minutes, rinse, and dry.
From whipping up D-I-Y cleaners made from ingredients in your home to keeping your cabinets and countertops clean, there are little things throughout your home that add up to a fresh space. A clean home is an easy way to keep your family healthy and happy! For more ways to stay fresh, be sure to Like Lennar on Facebook.
