Spring Cleaning Time!

It's that time of year to SPRING CLEAN! I am sharing some of my favorite cleaning Tips & Tricks that may help you along the way or when your in a pinch. So whip out your favorite tunes & cleaning gloves and remember welcoming Spring means Summer's around the corner!

* If you have rust stains in your bathtub or sink, pour on hydrogen peroxide and sprinkle on a little cream of tartar. Let it sit for a half hour or so, then wipe clean.

* Mix equal parts olive oil and lemon juice for a natural furniture polish. Just apply with a soft cloth and buff to a shine. You can also use this on wood paneling.

* Use shaving cream to clean carpet stains. Just scrub it in and rinse and let dry.

* Tuck dryer sheets in drawers to help keep your clothes smelling fresh.
