It’s spring time here in New Jersey, and for some, that means blossoming flowers and trees and the fresh air. For others, that means only one thing: spring cleaning. It’s the season where garbage collectors and dumpster rental companies are quite busy and those deep cleaning their homes are stressed. Well, the good news is: You don’t have to be stressed.

5 Spring Cleaning Tips from New Jersey’s Number One Dumpster Rental Service

1. Lime buildup

This is something we all have to deal with eventually when cleaning our kitchen or bathroom. It seems that it is almost impossible to get rid of that nasty lime buildup that accumulates on the faucet of our sinks. Since scrubbing doesn’t work, how do you get rid of the stuff?

Try laying some paper towels over the area and soaking it in vinegar. Then, let it sit for about an hour or so. The deposit should become softer and then, at that point, can just be wiped off.

Here’s a fact about lime buildup: it’s just buildup from deposits from hard water. When hard water evaporates, it leaves behind calcium and “limescale,” which can be prevented with water softeners.

2. Cleaning windows

Cleaning windows with the typical means can leave streaks and white spots. There are better ways to do it! Instead of using a paper towel, try using a rag and some soapy water. Once that’s done, try drying it all off with another rag.

A windshield squeegee also does an excellent job.

3. Ceiling fan blades

If you just take a rag and brush off the ceiling fan blades, your spring cleaning experience will be filled with plenty of allergies and even more dusting. You don’t want to “dust” it, but clean it thoroughly.

If you have any furniture polish lying around, you can use that instead. Grab a rag, and cover the ceiling fan blades with a coat of the furniture polish. Then, lightly buff it out. Your ceiling fans will be clean and shiny!

4. Refrigerator cleaner

A fridge is a place that can gather a lot of bacteria and grime. It can lead to an smelly situation, so knowing how to clean it is a must for spring cleaning. The best solution is a solution that effectively scrubs away all the germs and spilled food.

The best cleaner is a salt and soda water combination. When this two mix together, it creates a bubbly solution that effectively scrubs away the mess. The bubbles mixed with the abrasive surface of salt makes for a great scrubber.  

5. Drapes

Not everyone cleans their drapes aside from the occasional dust off. Well, your drapes collect a lot of dust and dirt, so cleaning them is a must. Not to mention, they can end up looking a bit drab if not touched up. So here’s what you do…

Put the drapes in the dryer and run them through the air-fluff cycle, alongside a wet towel, for 15 minutes. Make sure to take the hooks out first.
