Today is March 26 and you know what that means! You don’t know what that means? Well, it is officially national spring cleaning week. We gave you some tips and starting points to think about in our last blog and hopefully you were able to get a good start but now it’s time to get real so here’s a list of spring cleaning myths and truths.
Myth: Gutters only need to be cleaned in Spring.
Truth: Clogged gutter lead to damage, no matter the season. Clean them of debris in the spring and the fall.
Myth: Bleach is a great cleaner.
Truth: Bleach is a great disinfectant. In order to get rid of dirt and grime, use a cleaner.
Myth: Your dishwasher cleans itself.
Truth: Your dishwasher cleans your dishes. You should probably get in there and clean the actual dishwasher too. Clean out debris, wipe off the compartments and maybe run the dishwasher once while empty.
Myth: Citrus peels are good for the garbage disposal and smell.
Truth: Citrus peels only momentarily disguises the smell but it will come back and you risk clogging your sink with the peels.
Myth: Wash your laundry in cold water.
Truth: While washing laundry in cold water is good for your energy costs it also encourages spreading of bacteria and mold. Instead wash on warm for cloths and hot for bedding.
