Now that Spring Break is wrapped up and kids are back to school, its time to focus on Spring Cleaning!
When doing staging consultations one thing we are always stressing to clients is CLEANING your home. A sparkling clean home shows so well and stands out from the competition.
Usually when preparing to sell, time is at a premium and any time saving tricks are gold!
Here’s a few tips we love to share with our clients:
Removing Hard Water Stains:
Soak some paper towels or cleaning cloths in undiluted vinegar, place on and around the mineral build-up, leave the damp cloths on for at least an hour and then scrub and rise. Ta-Da!
Cleaning Your Dishwasher:
First remove the bottom loading tray and inspect your drain, remove any debris that can clog the draining process. Next sprinkle 1 cup of baking soda on the bottom of your dishwasher, replace the loading tray and leave the baking soda overnight.
