What You Need to Tackle Your Spring Cleaning Projects

Washing machine cleaning

There are many things to clean in your home that go beyond the floors, bedding and dishes. When was the last time you dusted your light bulbs or cleaned your washing machine? 

Spring is the perfect time to do some deep cleaning, restocking, and tend to some of the areas of your home that we often overlook. Before tackling any project, it's important to make sure you have the right tools. Here are some needed essentials to take on your big jobs, and the small ones. And happy cleaning

Washing Machine

Your washing machine should be cleaned, inside and out. It's our #1 trusted place to keep our clothes clean, but it can also be home to bacteria and mildew. It's good to give it a cleansing rinse.
