Hopefully, spring has sprung and we're going to be enjoying more sunshine and warmer temps for a while. It's been hard to think of spring cleaning when it hasn't felt like spring, don't you agree?
Before I share some tips for spring cleaning, I want to first remind you of some of the FUN things about spring.
~The flowers and trees begin blooming, adding color to our world, and everything'greens up'. Many look forward to planting a garden.
~We get to see more birds, and maybe, even wake up early because of all the birds chirping. (!)
~We all spend more time outdoors, soaking up the Vitamin D.
I know it seems rather redundant to WASH your top loading washing machine, but think of all the dirt and grime that go through it yearly. It needs a bath too!
Fill the washer with HOT water. Add 1 quart of chlorine bleach - no detergent and let the machine agitate for a minute, then let it sit for one hour. After one hour, allow the washer to run through its longest wash and spin cycle. Immediately fill the washer with HOT water again and add . Let agitate for a minute, and again, let it sit for one hour. Using the bleach and vinegar will clean away bacteria, soap scum and mineral deposits from the wash basket and hoses. Every washer should be cleaned at least twice per year.
