Spring has officially sprung, and for a lot of us, that means spring cleaning!  I've literally only done it as a renter, every time I moved. But since I just bought a house, I'm gonna have to get into a new habit!

That includes the inside, and the outside, of your home. There are a few precautions to take though...


  • 1

    Use A Ladder!

    Don't get lazy. If you can't quite reach things like ceiling fans, enlist help. Stretching to reach something is how most accidents happen.

    Don't Lift Alone!

    If you're moving a big piece of furniture to clean under it, lift with your legs, or ask for help!

    Don't Use Too Many Chemicals

    You can clean almost anything with vinegar and water. Here's a good list!

    Don't Mix Chemicals!

    Mixing bleach and vinegar creates a gas that can burn your lungs.  Bleach and anything with ammonia does the same.  NEVER mix these together!
