Wyoming Spring Cleaning Tips

Updated on March 10, 2017

Here we will go over some helpful tips to get ready for spring here in Wyoming. Between the wind and sand/dirt, it can be hard to keep up on the dust. The best way we have found to tackle the whole house is to do it one room at a time.

These 4 tips are just basic little things to help you along the travel.

1) Baseboards: These can get really beaten up, sometimes more then we notice. How often do you think normal people think about cleaning them? The answer is not very often. Cleaning them every 6 months or so will really help keep them looking nice and white all year round.

2) Pet Hair Removal: We have 3 dogs and things can get crazy around here sometimes. The best way I have found to clean up pet hair is with a vacuum and a rubber glove, like a dish washing glove. Vacuum the surface to get what you can, next put on the glove and sweep with you hand to pick up the rest. Vacuum as you go to help keep control of all the hair. :)

3) Fridge: For some reason around spring time our fridge is always smelly, sound similar? I will always take everything out of the fridge, pull out the drawers and scrub. To make it easier I mix warm water, baking soda, and a drop of dawn. The dawn and warm water will make scrubbing less difficult. The baking soda will help get ride of the smell and keep it away for awhile. Keeping an open box of baking soda in the fridge will help all year around to eliminate most odors.

4) Dishwasher: These things get so nasty and filled with food particles. This is a simple 2 step process to get is cleaned out and smelling fresh. First pour 1 Cup of vinegar into a bowl and place it on the top rack of the dishwasher and start it up. Next sprinkle some baking soda at the bottom of the dishwasher and run another cycle. You can use a shorter cycle for either of these. The vinegar and baking soda combined will help clean out food particles and will leave your dishwasher smelling great!
